The greatest scientist this world has ever known. Born January 8, 1942. He is especially famous for his book "A Brief History of Time," published in 1988, which became a bestseller. Hawking is a physicist especially known for his work on black holes.
He currently is the Lucasian Professor of Mathematics at the University of Cambridge. This post was also held by Sir Isaac Newton.
Stephen Hawking's genius becomes even more amazing when seen beside his disability. Lou Gehrig's Disease has left him tetraplegic and only able to be mobile with a highly advanced wheelchair.
Hawking has a great sense of humor and even engages in bets and jokes with others, never letting his disability become a damper on his talent.
I hope someday I'll be a theoretical physicist like Stephen Hawking.
I think that Stephen Hawking deserves a Nobel Prize. Proof? Who needs proof?!
