Could new rail station for Cambridge be named after Prof Stephen Hawking?

The Cambridge News asked me my views on the name for the new Cambridge railway station at the Science Park. Here's what I said:

"It's right that the council asks the public for suggestions, but I think it will be hard to find a better name than Cambridge Science Park, because that is where the station is, most local people know that, and anyone coming from outside gets the message that Cambridge is a world-leader on science and innovation. But it would be great to have a strapline as well: City of Watson, Crick, Keynes and Stephen Hawking, City of Discovery and Innovation."
