“Intelligence is the ability to adapt to change”- Stephen Hawking
Who was Stephen Hawking?
Who was Stephen William Hawking is a question that has many possible answers. In history Stephen Hawking is regarded as the most brilliant theoretical physicist Cosmologist. The theories put forward by him on universe are rather revolutionizing.
His theories, had made the world sit back and think about the basic concept of physics. And the way universe works. And the various concepts of the Universe like the Big Bang theory. His theory on black holes. his noted works include: A brief history of time, The Universe in a Nutshell, Grand Design, The Theory of Everything. Also He gave new definitions to already prevailing theories of quantum mechanics and Astro- physicist.
A life full of challenges:
It is often said that the people born with extraordinary capabilities and primarily genius have to face a lot of challenges in their lives. These are mainly the challenges of being accepted in society.
Challenges at home:
British Cosmologist, Stephen William Hawking was born on 8th January 1942 to Frank and Isobel Hawking. It is said that he was born precisely, 300 years after an even popular and an infamous poly math Italian, Mathematician, natural philosopher.
He attended University College, Oxford, where he studied physics, despite his father’s urging to focus on medicine. Hawking went on to Cambridge to research cosmology, the study of the universe as a whole.
Physically being challenged:
In the year 1963, just shy of his 21st birthday he was diagnosed with a motor neuron disease more commonly called Lou Gehrig’s disease or amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). This disease confined him to a wheel chair and gradually paralysed him over the years. Even he was not expected to live more than two years. Yet he defied all norms and completed his PhD, and paved new ways, in the understanding of Universe.
Personal life Challenge:
Just before his Diagnosis he met Jane Wilde. But they got married in the year 1965. They split in the year 1995. Stephen Hawking married Elaine Mason his nurse and care- giver, in the year 1996. Then he divorced her too in year 2006. And was close again his first wife children and grandchildren.
A self confessed atheist said that he did not believe in religion and religious activities. He believed that the universe was governed by laws of science and everything has logic behind it. He often said that, “There is a fundamental difference between religion, which is based on authority, [and] science, observation and reason. Science will win because it works.”
He said “The belief that heaven or an afterlife awaits us is a “fairy story” for people afraid of death. He compared his brain to a computer and said that computers do not get havens when they stop working, also life after death is a fairy tale told to people after dark.
A Brilliant Mind:
Stephen Hawking was a man of brilliance. He had many achievements at a very young age. His biggest achievement was not to bow down to the disease that he had, rather than fight it. And his many accolades include:
Furthermore, Hawking continued to work and lecture at Cambridge after his graduation, serving as a research fellow. Furthermore, in the year 1974 he was introduced, into the Royal Society, which is a worldwide fellowship for Scientists.
In the year 1979, he was appointed as the Lucasian professor of Mathematics at Cambridge. this is considered as the most famous academic chair in the world. The first holder of the same was Sir Isaac Newton, who was also a member of Royal Society.
Unification with other Scientist:
Studying basic laws of the universe was his course of career. He believed that since universe said to have a beginning the big Bang it will also have an end. Working with his fellow cosmologist Roger Penrose, he revealed that Albert Einstein’s theory of general relativity. He suggested that space and time of universe began at the very inception of universe or big bang. And will end in Black holes, hence uniting the Einstein’s theory of Quantum Physics.
Death of Stephen Hawking:
It is said that he died at the wee hours of 14th march 2018, in his sleep and peacefully at this Cambridge home. His death has left a void not only in scientific world but for general public and young want to be Stephen Hawkings. A void that, cannot be filled with anyone else.
