Stephen Hawking and The Universe: A Biography
English | ISBN: 1614642338 | 2012 | EPUB / MOBI | 26 Pages | 205 / 240 KB
Stephen William Hawking is arguably the most famous scientist since Albert Einstein. He is a theoretical physicist, applied mathematician, and cosmologist, but he is best known to non-scientists as the author of A Brief History of Time, his best-selling book that unraveled the origins of the universe. His fame is so far-reaching that he has appeared on such popular entertainment as Star Trek: The Next Generation and Late Night with Conan OBrien. He has even been animated as a character on The Simpsons.
Hawking is also well known for being the longest-living survivor of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS, or Lou Gehrigs disease). Most patients can expect to live for no more than ten years following a diagnosis of ALS, but Hawking has survived for almost 50 years since the onset of the disease. The condition has caused him almost total paralysis, confining him to a wheelchair and forcing him to speak through a voice synthesizer activated by his cheek muscle.
