Dion Martineau Mrs. Merrell B3 Jr. English April 10th Stephen Hawking’s and his discoveries as a scientist Stephen Hawking is a famous American scientist who studies cosmology and is a theoretical physicist who has inspired many other scientist out there in the world. Albert Einstein was a big influence on Hawking because he liked Einsteins Theory of Relativity, he used this to study black holes. Stephen Hawking is also an influence on other scientist in todays date such as Brian Cox who has a tv
to mention the name "Stephen Hawking" in a group of people, a few different things may come to mind. You may think of his controversial views on religion, his debilitating disease, or his theories of how the universe was formed. This essay will dive into all of these topics, including many other facts of Stephen Hawking's life. Stephen Hawking was born on January 8, 1942, exactly three hundred years after the death of Galileo. He was born to parents Frank and Isobel Hawking in Oxford, England.
understand the universe. That makes us something very special”-Stephen Hawking. At the age of 21, Stephen Hawking was diagnosed with Lou Gehrig’s disease (ALS) which is a type of motor neuron disease that left him paralyzed. Hawking was given only a few years to live yet he powered through his disease. Hawking overcame this life threatening disability to become one of the most influential scientists of our modern day physics. Stephen Hawking has influenced physics by his incredible work and data explaining
begin? Why is the universe the way it is? How will it end?” This quote by Stephen Hawking, a physicist famous for his work in theoretical physics, illustrates his fascination with the universe. Hawking has been known for the development of theories about the universe, including his work on black holes and theories on the origins of the cosmos. Aside from his amazing discoveries, Hawking has a unique personal story. (Stephen Hawking's Universe) He was diagnosed with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS)
Stephen Hawking Stephen Hawking one of the greatest physicist was born on January 8, 1942 in Oxford,England. Surprisingly he was born on the 300 hundredth anniversary of Galileo. Hawking’s parents lived in Highgate during the attack of the world war II and the black out in London. For a more guarded and secure place his mother Isobel decided to give birth in Oxford, England.(Hawking.org) During this time money was very little for the Hawkings because of the war. Everything was hard for them at
Stephen Hawking’s brilliance and popularity can easily be identified as a near equivalent as that of Darwin, Newton, or Einstein. Some of his greatest achievements include defining and redefining black holes, analyzing the beginning of time and space, and popularizing science. In 1974, Hawking presented a theory so radical, it would be later recognized as “Hawking radiation.” He argued that black holes actually emit energy. This point—although seemingly insignificant—brought key concepts of classical
Stephen Hawking is an extraordinary being to say the least. Stephen is possibly the smartest person on the planet, and if he isn’t quite there he is extremely close. Hawking is a very interesting person between his family, being diagnosed, education, and many other things, including his research, he is definitely worth reading about. This paper will inform you of everything you need to know about Stephen William Hawking. First, even from birth this mathematical and theoretical genius has an irregular
before I was introduced to a scientist by the name of Stephen Hawking. The introduction was very informal. In fact, I have never even seen him. My first introduction to Stephen's theories came when I read a popular book that Stephen wrote called A Brief History of Time, in this book he attempts to explain some of his most complicated theories. These include the topics of black holes, imaginary time, and the origin of the universe. Stephen is the front runner in his field. Many of his peers consider
our planet. His name is Stephen Hawking. He has written many books, attended two universities, and is a renowned scientist. From conception to the present, Stephen Hawking has lived a very interesting life. Stephen William Hawking was born to Frank and Isobel Hawking on January the 8th, 1942 in Oxford, England. Incredibly enough, Hawking was born exactly 300 years after the death of the famed astronomer and early physicist, Galileo Galilei, who died in 1642. As a child, Stephen lived a normal life.
Dr. Stephen Hawking has been considered to be more brilliant then Einstein. Dr. Hawking was born on January 8 1942 in Oxford, England on the 300th anniversary of Galileo’s death. Is this a coincidence? After his studies at St. Albans School, he attended University College, Oxford. He wanted to study Mathematics, but because it was unavailable at Oxford, he concentrated on Physics and earned a degree in Natural Science three years later. Stephen went on to Cambridge to do research in Cosmology. After
