“`Stephen Hawking was a theoretical physicist, cosmologist, author, and a Director of Research within the University of Cambridge. Hawking has a rare early-onset, slow-progression disease:  Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis  (ALS) that gradually paralyzed him over the decades. He communicated in using a cheek muscle attached to a speech-generating device. His story is shared in The Theory of Everything. Eddie Redmayne won an Oscar for his performance as Hawking.                           STEPHEN HAWKING —>

“`Professor Hawking worked on the basic laws that govern the universe. With Roger Penrose, he surmised that Einstein’s general  Theory of Relativity implied space and time would have a beginning in the Big Bang and an end in black holes. These results indicated it was necessary to unify general relativity with Quantum Theory, the other great scientific development of the first half of the 20th Century. One consequence of such a unification which he discovered was black holes emit radiation, and then, evaporate and disappear. Another of his theories include that the universe has no edge or boundary in imaginary time.

“`Hawking has thirteen honorary degrees. He was awarded CBE, Companion of Honour; and a  Presidential Medal of Freedom. He was also the recipient of many awards, medals, and prizes; most notably the Fundamental Physics prize; Copley Medal; and the Wolf Foundation prize. He was a Fellow of the Royal Society; and a member of the United States National Academy of Sciences and Pontifical Academy of Sciences.

“`For his fellow scientists, it was Hawking’s intuition and wicked sense of humor, making him a stand-out as much as a broken body and synthetic voice that came to symbolize the wealth of possibilities of the human mind. He leaves an intellectual vacuum in a space-time continuum.

“`One bit of irony… The professor was born 300 years exactly to the day after the passing of Galileo. He died on the same day Albert Einstein was born. Stephen Hawking was 76.

Until next time>                               “never forget”
