Stephen Hawking

It was a great honour to write about one of the greatest theoretical physicist, author and cosmologist in the history of science. His name is Stephen William Hawking. He was born in Oxford, England on the 8th of January, 1942. He died at the age of 76 on the 14th of March 2018 in Cambridge, England.

His signature:

He was the director of research in the University of Cambridge's centre for theoretical cosmology before he died.

From the year 1979 to the year 2009, he was apparently the University of Cambridge's Lucasian Professor of Mathematics.


He wrote a thesis on ''Properties Of Expanding Universes'' in the year 1966.

He worked with Roger Penrose on Gravitational singularity theorems in the frame work of general relativity. He also worked on radiation emissions which was later termed the Hawking radiation.

Stephen Hawking is literally the first Scientist to bring out a theory on cosmology which was apparently interpreted by the combination of relativity and quantum mechanics general theories.
He was a member of the Pontifical Academy Of Sciences.

His fame peaked through the great scientific works that were literally backed by his own theories. He was really passionate about cosmology.

One of his popular books "A brief history of time" showed up two hundred and thirty seven weeks on the British Sunday Times best-seller list. That was extraordinary and very intriguing.

He was a fellow of the Royal Society. He received a Presidential Medal of Freedom in the United States.

A 2002  poll on 100 greatest Britons carried out by BBC ranked Stephen Hawking 25th.

Hawking lost his speech and became  paralysed due the effects of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis he had.

He is considered by many as the greatest theoretical physicist and cosmologist of the 21st century.
