Happy Birthday Stephen Hawking: God of the Universe

The theory of everything, the movie is based on Stephen William HawkingHe does a great job of portraying genius. A man survived the fatal amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), which was estimated to kill him within two years. A renowned physicist and cosmologist who held the prestigious position of Lucasian Professor of Mathematics, which had previously been held by only 17 notable individuals including Charles Babbage and Sir Isaac Newton.

All my life I have been fascinated by the big questions facing us, and have tried to find scientific answers to them. If, like me, you look at the stars, and try to make sense of what you see, you too are beginning to wonder what makes the universe exist.

Stephen Hawking grew up in a scientific family; His father was a research biologist and his mother worked as a medical research secretary. Although he was an average student in school, his friends used to refer to him as “EinsteinBecause of his keen interest and knowledge in subjects like math and physics. His carefree attitude prevailed until he was diagnosed with ALS. Then he gave his goals a greater degree of focus.

I was never at the top of the class in school, but my classmates must have seen potential in me, because my nickname was ‘Einstein’.

Although his health was deteriorating with each passing year, Hawkins continued his efforts to adjust his way of life. For example, after losing the ability to write, he learned engineering equations. His pioneering research and thesis on the existence of the universe and the black hole theory has enlightened many scientists. His books made his ideas widely accessible to the masses.

full name: Stephen William Hawking

Boy: January 8, 1942 (exactly 300 years after the death of Galileo Galilei)

Die: March 14, 2018

place of birth: Oxford, England

net value: $20 Million + (As of 2018)

I Believe Things cannot make themselves impossible.

The great Stephen Hawking explains the inspiration behind his remarkable life in the above quote. You can quench your curiosity by reading the fascinating but lesser known facts about this amazing work of God:

  • Invalid time of birth: Apart from being financially vulnerable, the political scenario in England was tense as World War II was at its climax and also the fear of bombs from Germany was looming which forced Hawking’s family to move to Oxford For a safe haven where this great man was born.
  • ‘anomaly’ family: Stephen’s family home St Albansa three storey house the top of which was never repaired, they had an old car as a family car, they had bees in the basement and they produced fireworks.
  • Out of the crowd: Curious Stephen and some friends built a computer from clock parts, an old phone keypad, and other recycled components to solve basic math equations.
  • A man of wide tastes: During his adolescence, he loved board games, and Climbing created different paths leading to his family home. During his Oxford days he took an interest in dancing and rowing by becoming a coxswain which earned him the label ‘daredevil’ and adventurer.
  • Graduation: His father wanted Stephen to take medicine as his profession, but on the contrary, the physics and mathematics lover chose Oxford in 1959 at the age of 17, because Oxford did not offer a course in mathematics.
  • Hawking was not a nerd in college, and one hour of study a day was enough for him. Later in 1962, he went to Trinity Hall at the University of Cambridge to obtain a doctorate in cosmology.
  • turning point: Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS, or Lou Gehrig’s) made him realize the importance of time making him more serious about his work. He once said, “Before my diagnosis, I was so bored with life, that nothing worth doing seemed to do.” At the hospital, he shared his room with another patient who had leukemia, which was worse than amyotrophic lateral sclerosis; Hawking’s position seemed relatively acceptable.

Obviously, because of my disability, I need help. But I’ve always tried to overcome the limitations of my condition and live life as fully as possible. I’ve traveled all over the world, from the South Pole to zero gravity.

  • Lord of beneficial harm: Shortly before Stephen Hawking was diagnosed with ALS, Jane Wilde met a young undergraduate student of languages ​​on New Year’s Eve in 1963 and later married her in 1965. Despite his declining physical condition, Jane always motivated and cared for him.
  • Their marriage was strained by his failing health and also because he was an atheist while Jane was a devout Christian. Hawking once said, “God is the name people give to the reason we are here. But I think the reason is the laws of physics and not someone with whom one can have a personal relationship. impersonal god.
  • Stephen Hawking was fascinated by Roger Penrose’s work on the singularity of space-time, the fate of stars, and the formation of black holes. His thesis and research on the birth of the universe changed the way scientists think about the universe.
  • Later in 1968, his first son, Robert, was born, which proved to be a lucky charm for Hawking as he became a member of the Institute of Astronomy in Cambridge.
  • In 1973 he published his first highly technical book The Large Scale Structure of Space-Time with GFR Ellis which shed light on Einstein’s general theory of relativity.
  • Hawking radiation: In 1974, he showed that black holes are not actually black, matter in the form of radiation can pass through the gravitational forces of the collapsing star. This discovery made Hawking an international celebrity, and he received many awards and titles including the prestigious Albert Einstein Award.
  • Professor Lucasi: At Caltech (California Institute of Technology), Stephen Hawking worked as a visiting professor and later at Gonville and Caius College in Cambridge. He then returned to the University of Cambridge in 1979, where he was honored with the prestigious Lucasian Professor of Mathematics position which is shared by only 17 people to date including the legendary Isaac Newton.
  • Stephen Hawking’s physical condition worsened, so he asked a graduate student to take care of him with his wife, Jane. Later in 1985, he lost his voice after a tracheotomy. With his help, a computer programmer from California developed a Speech synthesis program Which was directed by the head and eye movement.
  • About the date of the time: Recipient of the Commander of the Order of the British Empire, published ‘About the history of time’– A short book on cosmology that won him international fame. The bestselling book has been translated into 40 languages ​​while millions of copies have been sold.
  • Definitely another Einstein: Stephen Hawking claimed that time travel is possible and he can think in 11 dimensions and also believes that humans may colonize other planets in the future. While his books “The Universe in a Nutshell” – insights into cosmology and larger, more elaborate theories – “A Brief History of Time” proved to be milestones for an ordinary man.
  • while visiting Kennedy Space Center In Florida in 2007, he had the opportunity to experience zero gravity inside a modified car Boeing 727 He was released from his wheelchair to feel weightless. He said excitedly, “The zero part was great, and the high G part wasn’t a problem. I could go on. Space, here I come.”
  • Stephen Hawking was married to one of his nurses, Elaine Mason, in 1995 after he left Jane in 1990 who was dating the graduate student who was taking care of Hawking. While in 2006, Elaine and Hawking filed for divorce after some complaints from Hawking’s children and ill-treatment by Elaine towards Hawking.
  • In 1999, Jane published ‘Music to Move the Stars’ – about her relationship with Hawking, which was released and updated in 2007’s ‘Traveling to Infinity: My Life with Stephen’ and later adapted into the acclaimed film ‘The Theory of Everything’ that was made. It was released in 2014.
  • Hawking has also appeared on several TV shows including The Simpsons, Late Night with Conan O’Brien and even recorded the vocals for Pink Floyd’s song ‘Keep Talking’.
  • He supports finding a new habitable planet in space and is set to travel into space as one of Sir Richard Branson’s Astronauts. He feared that the planet would one day lose its existence due to a catastrophe or nuclear war, and thus the human race would have no future instead of exploring new horizons. He was also against development AI- Artificial Intelligence.
  • His latest work proves that the Big Bang led to the creation of the universe and his latest publication “The Grand Design” challenges Sir Isaac Newton’s belief that God designed the universe.
  • In 2011, Stephen Hawking took part in the iBrain experiment – a device that can read the wearer’s thoughts. According to The New York Times, this device could be a revolutionary aid for Hawking and others with ALS.

If I had to pick a superhero, I’d pick Superman. It is all that I am not.

  • About acting in a film, Stephen Hawking said, “My ideal role would be the villain in a James Bond movie, I think a wheelchair and computer voice would be right for the part.”

Life would be tragic if it weren’t funny.

Update: March 14, 2018: Stephen Hawkins died in the early hours of Wednesday at his home in Cambridge.
