Hawking was born on 8 January 1942 in Oxford.
Today he died at the aged, 76
He has lived such a long, deep and meaningful life while dwelling within knowledge and universe.
Even after a pathetic disease, with a paralysed body.
And when his Dr. Said to him, almost 50 years ago that he has only two years,
He fought a huge war, and unlock the secrete of universe ‘Black hole’, ‘Big bang’.
And also win it with full grace. Today I am sad to remember him and also bow to him a great, and one in centuries human-being.
He has done so much work but even there is much more that he would love to do, so he’ll definetly born again. RIP Stephen Hawking
His life story-
Hawking considered as highly intelligent and somewhat eccentric;
Hawking began his schooling at the Byron House School in Highgate, London. He later blamed its “progressive methods” for his failure to learn to read while at the school.
The eight-year-old Hawking attended St Albans High School for Girls for a few months.
A positive consequence was that Hawking remained with a close group of friends with whom he enjoyed board games, the manufacture of fireworks, model aeroplanes and boats, and long discussions about Christianity and extrasensory perception.
From 1958 on, with the help of the mathematics teacher they built a computer from clock parts, an old telephone switchboard and other recycled components.
Although known at school as “Einstein”, Hawking was not initially successful academically.
With time, he began to show considerable aptitude for scientific subjects and, inspired by Tahta, decided to read mathematics at university.
Hawking decided to study physics and chemistry. Despite his headmaster’s advice to wait until the next year, Hawking was awarded a scholarship.
Hawking began his university education at University College, Oxford at the age of 17.
For the first 18 months, he was bored and lonely – he found the academic work “ridiculously easy”.
“People who boast about their IQ are losers.”
A change occurred during his second and third year when, according to Berman, Hawking made more of an effort “to be one of the boys”.
He developed into a popular, lively and witty college member, interested in classical music and science fiction.
“Intelligence is the ability to adapt the change.”
Hawking estimated that he studied about a thousand hours during his three years at Oxford. These unimpressive study habits made sitting his finals a challenge.
Anxious, he slept poorly the night before the examinations, and the final result was on the borderline between first- and second-class honours, making a viva (oral examination) necessary.
Hawking was concerned that he was viewed as a lazy and difficult student.
So, when asked at the oral to describe his future plans, he said, “If you award me a First, I will go to Cambridge. If I receive a Second, I shall stay in Oxford, so I expect you will give me a First.” (Witty and clever)
“Live would be tragic, if it weren’t funny.”
He was held in higher regard than he believed; as the examiners “were intelligent enough to realise they were talking to someone far cleverer than most of themselves”.
“Quite people have the loudest mind.”
After receiving a first-classBA (Hons.) degree in natural science and completing a trip to Iran with a friend, he began his graduate work at Trinity Hall, Cambridge.
After being diagnosed with motor neurone disease, Hawking fell into a depression – though his doctors advised that he continue with his studies, he felt there was little point.
“My expectations were reduced to zero when I was 21. Everything since then had been a bonus.”
His disease progressed more slowly than doctors had predicted.
Although Hawking had difficulty walking unsupported, and his speech was almost unintelligible, an initial diagnosis that he had only two years to live proved unfounded.
When Hawking applied the same thinking to the entire universe; Black hole, Big-bang and, during 1965, he wrote his thesis on this topic.
Hawking’s thesis was approved in 1966.
There were other positive developments: in March 1966; and his essay titled “Singularities and the Geometry of Space-Time” shared top honours with one by Penrose to win that year’s prestigious Adams Prize.
He had won numerous awards, and his written one of book sold out the millions of copies. And on his complete life there made a movie The Theory of Everything, in 2014.
As he slowly lost the ability to write, he developed compensatory visual methods, including seeing equations in terms of geometry.
The physicist Werner Israel later compared the achievements to Mozart composing an entire symphony in his head.
Hawking was fiercely independent and unwilling to accept help or make concessions for his disabilities.
“While there’s life, there is hope.”
He preferred to be regarded as “a scientist first, popular science writer second, and, in all the ways that matter, a normal human being with the same desires, drives, dreams, and ambitions as the next person.
