Transcript of Stephen Hawking

Stephen Hawking Stephen was born on the 8th
of January, 1942. 300 years after
the death of Galileo. He is now
70. Stephen Hawking was diagnosed with
Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) in 1963. He was given two years to live. Elaine Hawking (m. 1995–2006), Jane Hawking (m. 1965–1991) and has three children, one daughter and two sons. Education:
Stephen Hawking obtained his first class honours
degree in Natural Science at University College. He then went on to study Cosmology at Cambridge University. After he gained his pH.D he became first a
research fellow and later on a Professorial
Fellow at Gonville and Caivas college. He left
the institute of astronomy in 1973 and came to
the department of applied mathematics and theoretical
physicist in 1974. Stephen Hawking is most respected for
his work on black holes, and stars. Stephen Hawking suggests that black holes
do not destroy what enters them, but they may
allow information to escape. It was Hawking's own work that created the paradox. In 1976, he calculated that once a black hole forms, it starts losing mass by radiating energy. A black hole is a region of space having a gravitational field so intense that no matter or radiation can escape. Even though Stephen Hawking's scientific
achievements are fantastic and they make
him a role model to children and adults
everywhere. I also think he is a role model
for not letting his disability hold him back
from achieving his dreams, that makes him
a true role model. U.S. President Barack Obama talks with Stephen Hawking in the Blue Room of the White House before a ceremony presenting him and 15 others the Presidential Medal of Freedom on 12 August 2009. Recent events Stephen Hawking at the Olympic ceremony People who boast about their I.Q. are losers.
