Stephen Hawking 's parents lived in London where his father was undertaking research into medicine. However, London was a dangerous place during World War II and Stephen's mother was sent to the safer town of Oxford where Stephen was born. The family were soon back together living in Highgate, north London, where Stephen began his schooling. In 1950 Stephen's father moved to the Institute for Medical Research in Mill Hill. The family moved to St Albans so that the journey to Mill Hill was easier. Stephen attended St Albans High School for Girls (which took boys up to the age of 10). When he was older he attended St Albans school but his father wanted him to take the scholarship examination to go to Westminster public school. However Stephen was ill at the time of the examinations and remained at St Albans school which he had attended from the age of 11. Stephen writes in [2]:- I got an education there that was as good as, if not better than, that I would have had at Westminster. I have never found that my lack of social graces has been a hindrance.

Biography Stephen Hawking was born on the 300th anniversary of Galileo's death. He has come to be thought of as the greatest mind in physics since Albert Einstein. With similar interests discovering the deepest workings of the universe he has been able to communicate arcane matters not just to other physicists but to the general public. In 1968 he joined the staff of the Institute of Astronomy in Cambridge and began to apply the laws of thermodynamics to black holes by means of very complicated mathematics. He published the very technical book, Large Scale Structure of Space-Time but soon afterwards made a startling discovery. It had always been thought that nothing could escape a black hole; Hawking suggested that under certain conditions, a black hole could emit subatomic particles. That is now know as Hawking Radiation. He continued working on the theory of the origin of the universe, and in doing so found ways to link relativity (gravity) with quantum mechanics (the inner workings of atoms). This contributed enormously to what physicists call Grand Unified Theory, a way of explaining, in one equation, all physical matter in the universe.

Modern physics has discovered one of the greatest things ever discovered, and that is:
matter is energy.
That is the greatest contribution of Albert Einstein to humanity: e is equal to mc squared, matter is energy. Matter only appears; otherwise there is no such thing as matter.

Biography Stephen Hawking (sp. Steven Hawkings) My goal is simple. It is complete understanding of the universe, why it is as it is and why it exists at all. ( Stephen Hawking But maybe that is our mistake: maybe there are no particle positions and velocities, but only waves. It is just that we try to fit the waves to our preconceived ideas of positions and velocities.The resulting mismatch is the cause of the apparent unpredictability.

Introduction - On the Metaphysics and Philosophy of Stephen Hawking's 'A Brief History of Time'.
The following discussion of quotes from Stephen Hawking's 'A Brief History of Time' are founded on the Metaphysics of Space and Motion and the Wave Structure of Matter (See below). The purpose is to explain how his ideas (and some of the resultant problems) can now be simply and sensibly solved. To do this we must change our perspective for describing reality from matter, to the Space in which all matter exists. Until recently it was assumed that matter existed as tiny 'particles' which generated electromagnetic and gravitational 'forces' on other particles. Further, Space is assumed to be relative i.e. reality is described in terms of

47. A Brief History Of Time - Stephen W. Hawking
quotations from the stephen W. hawking book.
Stephen W. Hawking Our Picture of the Universe

Any physical theory is always provisional, in the sense that it is only a hypothesis: you can never prove it. No matter how many times the results of experiments agree with some theory, you can never be sure that the next time the result will not contradict the theory. On the other hand, you can disprove a theory by finding even a single observation that disagrees with the predictions of the theory... Each time new experiments are observed to agree with the predictions the theory survives, and our confidence in it is increased; but if ever a new observation is found to disagree, we have to abandon or modify the theory.
Today scientists describe the universe in terms of two basic partial theories - the general theory of relativity and quantum mechanics... The general theory of relativity describes the force of gravity and the large-scale structure of the universe, that is, the structure on scales from only a few miles to as large as a million million million million (1 with twenty-four zeros after it) miles, the size of the observable universe. Quantum mechanics, on the other hands, deals with phenomena on extremely small scales, such as a millionth of a millionth of an inch. Unfortunately, however, these two theories are known to be inconsistent with each other - they cannot both be correct.
The discovery of a complete unified theory, therefore, may not aid the survival of our species. It may not even affect our life-style. But ever since the dawn of civilization, people have not been content to see events as unconnected and inexplicable. They have craved an understanding of the underlying order in the world. Today we still yearn to know why we are here and where we came from. Humanity's deepest desire for knowledge is justification enough for our continuing quest. And our goal is nothing less than a complete description of the universe we live in.

Question: What did former baseball great Lou Gehrig have in common with the following people:
  • Hall of Fame baseball pitcher Jim "Catfish" Hunter?
  • Sesame Street creator Jon Stone?
  • Actor David Niven?
  • Boxing champ Ezzard Charles?
  • Pro football player Glenn Montgomery?
  • New York Senator Jacob Javits?
Answer: They all had a serious illness known today as Lou Gehrig's disease What Is Lou Gehrig's Disease?
Lou Gehrig's disease refers to a disorder called amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (say: ah -my-uh-tro-fik lah -tuh-rul skluh- ro -sis), or ALS. The official name comes from these Greek words:
  • "a" for without
  • "myo" for muscle
  • "trophic" for nourishment
  • "lateral" for side (of the spinal cord)
  • "sclerosis" for hardening or scarring
In the United States, ALS is often called Lou Gehrig's disease because of New York Yankees' star Lou Gehrig, who was diagnosed with ALS in the 1930s. People in England and Australia call ALS 'Motor Neurone Disease' (MND). The French refer to it as 'Maladie de Charcot', after the French doctor Jean-Martin Charcot, who first wrote about ALS in 1869. Lou Gehrig's disease damages spinal cord pathways and motor neurons, which are important parts of the body's

"When one's expectations are reduced to zero, one really appreciates everything one does have." There is no prescribed route to follow to arrive at a new idea. You have to make the intuitive leap. But the difference is that once you've made that intuitive leap you have to justify it by filling in the intermediate steps. "It often happens that I have an idea, but then I try to fill in the intermediate steps and find they don't work, so I have to give it up." "Someone told me that each equation I included in my book would halve the sales. I did put in one equation, Einstein's famous equation, E = MC squared. I hope that this will not scare off half of my potential readers."

Dr. Stephen Hawking
Isn't that amazing? Dr. Hawking is best known for his discovery that black holes emit radiation which can be detected by special instrumentation. His discovery has made the detailed study of black holes possible. Stephen Hawking was born in Oxford, England on January 8, 1942. At the age of 17, he enrolled at University College, Oxford. He wanted to study mathematics, but resorted to the study of physics when math was unavailable. He pursued a Ph.D. in physics despite being diagnosed with Ameliotrophic Lateral Sclerosis while at Oxford. This disease is progressive and slowly affects the nerves supplying all muscles in the body. In 1985 he became ill with pneumonia and since that time he has required 24-hour nursing care. Through Dr. Hawking's incredible determination and with the help of family and associates, he continues to work. In 1970 he began work on the characteristics of black holes. As a result of his research, Dr. Hawking predicted that black holes emit radiation in the X-ray to gamma-ray range of the spectrum . In the 1980s he returned to an earlier interest in the origins of the Universe and how quantum mechanics may affect its fate. He has co-authored many publications such as "300 Years of Gravity" and "The Large Scale Structure of Space-time". Dr. Hawking has written books such as

Quantum mechanically, black holes radiate, with a radiation known as Hawking radiation, after the British physicist Stephen Hawking who first proposed it. The animation at top left cartoons the Hawking radiation from a black hole of the size shown at bottom left. The blobs are supposed to be individual photons. Notice, first, that the photons have `sizes' (wavelengths) comparable to the size of the black hole, and, second, that the Hawking radiation is not very bright - the black hole emits roughly one photon every light crossing time of the black hole. So a black hole observed by its Hawking radiation looks fuzzy, a quantum mechanical object. This is one animation that I did not compute mathematically. How do you draw a quantum mechanical object, whose appearance depends not only on the object but also on the way the observer chooses to observe it? I figured my impressionism was good enough here. Hawking radiation has a blackbody (Planck) spectrum with a temperature T given by kT g c c r s where k is Boltzmann's constant , hbar = h , and g r s is the surface gravity at the horizon, the

CAMBRIDGE, England (AP) Famed astrophysicist Stephen Hawking said Friday that allegations he was abused are "completely false," but his ex-wife urged police to investigate reports that he suffered a series of unexplained injuries. An inquiry was triggered by nursing staff who contacted police in the summer after Hawking who is paralyzed and uses a wheelchair was left stranded in his garden on the hottest day of the year and suffered severe heatstroke and sunburn. "I firmly and wholeheartedly reject the allegations that I have been assaulted," Hawking said in a statement issued Friday through Cambridge University. "The stories in the media are completely false, and I am profoundly disappointed by the circulation of such personal and inaccurate information," said Hawking, who is hospitalized in Cambridge with pneumonia. Police say they plan to interview Hawking when he recovers.
