Someone paid how much for Stephen Hawking's wheelchair!?

Stephen Hawking's wheelchair has just gone under the hammer for $393,000. 

The chair was sold in an online auction raising money for the Stephen Hawking Foundation and the Motor Neurone Disease Association, which is a fantastic cause, still, would be a strange piece of memorabilia to have in your pool room! 

A copy of Hawking's doctoral thesis, which also went under the hammer for $767,000, is something you’d pull out at a dinner party.

Also sold at auction was a script from one of his appearances on The Simpsons, for $8,152, and a collection of his medals and awards for $387,041.
