Stephen Hawking - Short Biography

Stephen Hawking is a living legend. Stephen Hawking is the famous theoretical physicist whose name will be at the top of the list of famous scientists of the modern age. He was one of the burning stars of cosmology. He was born in Oxford, United Kingdom on January 8, 1942. He was widely acclaimed for his work on the theory of black holes and relativity.

Hawking's father, Frank Hawking, was a biologist. And mother Isabel Hawking was a political activist. His father wanted Hawking to grow up to be a doctor. But Hawking had a keen interest in science and mathematics since childhood.

He received a scholarship from Oxford University in 1959. From this university he took a bachelor's degree in neural science.

He was diagnosed with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) in 1963. This disease renders his nerves useless. After suffering from motor neuron disease at just 21 years old, doctors thought he would live for at least two years. But he lived another 55 years, disproving that notion.

In 1985, he contracted pneumonia and was admitted to a hospital in Geneva. Although he survived the operation, he lost the ability to speak. The following year, he was able to speak in a robotic voice through an electronic voice synthesizer. Finally, Stephen Hawking died on March 14, 2018 at the age of 76, after suffering from cerebral palsy for more than 50 years.

Notably, Hawking was the first scientist to attempt to build a cosmology through the fusion of general theory of relativity and quantum mechanics. He was a robust supporter of the multi-world interpretation of quantum physics.

Finally we can say that. Stephen Hawking's value will be diminished if we analyze his judgment with this little talent. We can learn from Stephen Hawking's biography later, whatever the situation, blaming one's own destiny by accepting the rate is nothing but foolishness.


Some of Stephen Hawking's memorable and instructive quotes: 🙏 🙏 🙏

👉 Anger, which is enough to destroy any civilization, is man's greatest enemy.

👉 Those, who brag too much about their intelligence, are not the real heroes.

👉 Don't look into the bottom, look into the sky, and keep working. Life is meaningless without work.

👉 If you ever find love in life, don't throw it away.

👉 If anyone tells you are wrong you tell him it is necessary to make a mistake because, if you do not make a mistake, neither you nor I will survive.

👉 Your physical barrier can never be an obstacle to your good work. Do not regret any time for physical limitations. It is bad to have a disability in working.

👉 The people, who believe in the future, look at each other again and again as they cross the road.

👉 I haven't grown up yet. So even today I keep asking questions.
