100 Years of General Relativity –
From Albert Einstein to Stephen Hawking
This dramatic stamp sheet was issued in 2018 to mark the 100th anniversary of Albert Einstein’s publication of his theory of general relativity. The sheet of six stamps pictures Einstein and Stephen Hawking, as well as equations and other images from the past century that have had a major effect on the world.
The stamps were endorsed and personally approved by Stephen Hawking and bear the logo of the Stephen Hawking Foundation. In talking about the stamps, Hawking said, “I am honored to have both my face and life’s work featured alongside Albert Einstein.”
The stamps include a seldom-seen iridescent foil printing technique on the words “Isle” and “Man” as well as on the queen’s portraits. This neat sheetlet also comes with an informative presentation folder, which explains the science featured on each stamp as well as information about the Stephen Hawking Foundation.
