New York: The famous theoretical physicist professor Stephen Hawking is now on Facebook, asking fans to be "curious".
In his first Facebook post, Hawking said: "I have always wondered what makes the universe exist. Time and space may forever be a mystery, but that has not stopped my pursuit."
"Our connections to one another have grown infinitely and now that I have the chance, I am eager to share this journey with you. Be curious, I know I will forever be," he added.
Hawking's page has garnered over 900,000 likes so far.
The number is likely to grow exponentially when a biopic about Hawking's life "The Theory of Everything" premieres soon, media reports said.
