The Person I Admire

Stephen William Hawking

Was born on January 8, 1942.At the age of 20 graduated from the Oxford University.Just then the first signs of his disease appeared.In 1985 lost his ability to speak.The friends gave him a speech synthesizer as a present.Only some muscles in his cheek can move, so the speech synthesizer is connected just to them. The computer reproduces his speech.Married twice and has three children.

А British theoretical physicist, cosmologist, and author. Among his significant scientific works there is “Gravitational singularities theorems” in the framework of general relativity, and the theoretical prediction that black holes emit radiation, often called Hawking radiation. Hawking was the first to set forth a cosmology explained by a union of the general theory of relativity and quantum mechanics. He is also a supporter of quantum mechanics. He has achieved success with works of popular science in which he discusses his own theories and cosmology in general.
