•   Biography Of Stephen Hawking  •

Born: January 8, 1942
Oxford, England, UK.

Death: March 14,2018
Cambridge, England,UK.

Stephen Hawking was born on January 8, 1942 in Oxford, England, UK, 300 years to the day after the death of the astronomer Galileo Galilei. His father’s name was Frank Hawking, he was an English biologist; his mother’s name was Isobel Walker, a Scottish Philosophy, Politics and Economics graduate; both parents were graduates of the University of Oxford.Hawking had two younger sisters, Philippa and Mary, and an adopted brother, Edward Frank David .Stephen Hawking married Jane Wilde, a language student, in 1965, and they had three children: Lucy, Robert and Tim.

The couple separated in 1991. From 2009 Hawking was almost completely paralyzed.When he was eight his family moved to St. Albans, a town about 20 miles north of London.When he was eight his family moved to St. Albans, a town about 20 miles north of London. At the age of eleven, At the age of eleven,Hawking began his schooling at the Byron House School in Highgate, London. Stephen Hawking was an average student at school, deeply interested in science. Stephen wanted to study mathematics although his father would have preferred medicine. Mathematics was not available at University College, so he pursued physics instead. After three years and not very much work, he was awarded a first class honors degree in natural science.
After winning a scholarship in Natural Sciences at age 17, he graduated at age 20 with a first-class honors degree in Physics from University College, Oxford.Thereafter, Hawking carried out research at Trinity Hall, University of Cambridge, for a PhD in Astronomy and Cosmology.Although known at school as “Einstein”, Hawking was not initially successful academically. With time, he began to show considerable aptitude for scientific subjects and, inspired by Tahta, decided to read mathematics at university.

At age 21, while studying cosmology at the University of Cambridge, he was diagnosed with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). A motor neuron disease in which the nerves controlling the muscles become inactive while the sensory nerves function normally. At first his doctors expected him to die within two years.a weakening disease of the nervous and muscular system that eventually led to his total confinement in a wheelchair. Hawking’s disease helped turn him into the noted scientist he became. Before the diagnosis, Hawking hadn’t always focused on his studies. “Before my condition was diagnosed, I had been very bored with life,” he said. “There had not seemed to be anything worth doing. At Cambridge his talents were recognized, and he was encouraged to carry on his studies despite his growing physical disabilities. His marriage in 1965 was an important step in his emotional life. Marriage gave him, he recalled, the determination to live and make professional progress in the world of science. Hawking received his doctorate degree in 1966. He then began his lifelong research and teaching association with Cambridge University.After completing his doctorate in 1966 Hawking was awarded a fellowship at Gonville and Caius College, Cambridge. At first his position was that of Research Fellow, but later he became a Professorial Fellow at Gonville and Caius College. In 1973 he left the Institute of Astronomy and joined to the Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics at Cambridge. He became Professor of Gravitational Physics at Cambridge in 1977. In 1979 Hawking was appointed Lucasian Professor of Mathematics at Cambridge. The man born 300 years to the day after Galileo died now held  at Cambridge.

Hawking was known for bringing about a limited union between two very different fields: Albert Einstein’s general theory of relativity and quantum throe At one time it was thought that absolutely nothing could escape from a black hole. Hawking’s equations produced an amazing result – that over time black holes can lose energy – now known as Hawking radiation – hence they can shrink and ‘evaporate,’ disappearing from the universe.
Stephen Hawking has thirteen honorary degrees. He was awarded CBE (1982), Companion of Honour (1989) and the Presidential Medal of Freedom (2009). He is the recipient of many awards, medals and prizes, most notably the Fundamental Physics prize (2013), Copley Medal (2006) and the Wolf Foundation prize (1988). He is a Fellow of the Royal Society and a member of the US National Academy of Sciences and the Pontifical Academy of Sciences.In the 1980s Hawking answered one of Einstein’s unanswered theories, the famous unified field theory. A complete unified theory includes the four main interactions known to modern physics. The unified theory explains the conditions that were present at the beginning of the universe as well as the features of the physical laws of nature. When humans develop the unified field theory, said Hawking, they will know the mind of God. Entitled “Information Preservation and Weather Forecasting for” Black Holes” — was published Jan. 22 through the preprint journal arXiv.org and has not yet undergone the peer review vetting process typical for academic papers. It attempts to solve a paradox surrounding the basic building blocks of how the universe works.
Hawking was awarded the CBE in 1982, and became a Companion of Honour in 1989. He received numerous awards and medals, including becoming a Fellow of The Royal Society and a Member of the US National Academy of Sciences. He was honored with the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 2009.
A highly successful lecturer and author, from 1986 Hawking made use of an adaptive communication system including a speech synthesizer known as the Equalizer to combat ALS. Using the Equalizer, he authored books, scientific papers, and lectures, and was capable of communicating at the modest rate of about 15 words per minute.His computer synthesized voice and the concept a genius mind trapped within a powerless body captured the public imagination all over the world. Arguably, Hawking became the most famous scientist of the late 20th and early 21st centuries, making appearances in TV shows such as The Big Bang Theory, The Simpsons, and Red Dwarf. The 2014 movie The Theory of Everything was a drama about Hawking’s life and work.
In 2007, at the age of 65, Hawking made an important step toward space travel. While visiting the Kennedy Space Center in Florida, he was given the opportunity to experience an environment without gravity Pictures of the freely floating physicist splashed across newspapers around the globe.he said,The zero-Gravity part was wonderful, and the high-G part was no problem. I could have gone on and on. Space, here I come!”In 2012, Hawking showed off his humorous side on American television, making a guest appearance on The Big Bang Theory.In November of 2014, a film about the life of Stephen Hawking and Jane Wilde was released.

Hawking, among other top scientists, spoke out about the possible dangers of artificial intelligence ,In 2014.In July 2015, Hawking held a news conference in London to announce the launch of a project called Breakthrough Listen.Cambridge University posted Hawking’s 1965 doctoral thesis, “Properties of Expanding Universes,” to its website. An overwhelming demand for access promptly crashed the university server, though the document still fielded a staggering 60,000 views before the end of its first day online,In October 2017.
Stephen Hawking died at age 76, at home, on March 14, 2018, in Cambridge, UK and very coincidentally date 14th March is the birth date of great scientist Albert Einstein.
