    A wheelchair used by physicist Stephen Hawking has sold at auction for $393,000

    A copy of his doctoral thesis fetched $767,000

    The motorized chair was used by Hawking after he was paralyzed with motor neuron disease

    Proceeds from the chair’s sale will go to two charities, the Stephen Hawking Foundation and the Motor Neurone Disease Association

    Rather eccentric but I guess it's okay, with the funds going to pertinent causes.

    Never listened to his politics but his science was incomparable.
