Physics students in Palestine have received a massive boost from Professor Stephen Hawking who has asked his 3.8 million Facebook followers to donate to the Palestinian Advanced Physics School, a physics lecture series for West Bank masters students.

In a Facebook post, the famous physicist said "I was pleased to send a greeting to the Palestinian Master students attending the first Palestinian Advanced Physics School last year. The school was greatly appreciated by both the students and the lecturers.

I support the rights of scientists everywhere to freedom of movement, publication and collaboration. In this spirit, I would like to bring up a fundraising project aimed at raising funds to make a second Palestinian Advanced Physics School possible. Please consider making a donation today to support science in Palestine. - SH"
