To say Stephen Hawking was a legend is to undersell his impact on cosmology and physics in both academia and the public consciousness. Yet, as Perimeter Director and Hawking's collaborator Neil Turok write in this issue: "Despite Stephen's stature, he never became stuck in his ideas. He was open to questioning everything." It is that spirit that powers Perimeter Institute, and which we showcase in this special issue dedicated to the late, great Stephen Hawking.
This issue of Inside the Perimeter Magazine explores the value and the impact of cross-pollinating ideas. Stories explore the role of science in democracy; the search for dark matter; advances in quantum science; the challenges still facing women in science, and much more.
