One of the most famous scientific personalities in the world, Stephen Hawking was born on this day in 1942 in Oxford, England. Hawking was not a genius since childhood.

But the stars were still not on Hawking’s side as he was diagnosed with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), a degenerative motor neuron disease, when he was just 21. But he never gave up.

“In 1965, Hawking defended his doctoral thesis at the University of Cambridge, ‘Properties of the Expanding Universe’, which presented the revolutionary theory that space and time originated from a singularity, a point that is infinitely smaller and denser. , which is known today as the key feature of black holes. That year, Hawking was accepted as a research fellow at Gonville and Caius College in Cambridge – his academic home for life. Hawking’s Black His obsession with holes led to his 1974 discovery that particles could escape from black holes. Hawking’s radiation theory, which was widely considered his most important contribution to physics, wrote the Google Doodle page.
