Famed Scientist, Nobel Winner, a man who bridged Science and popular culture passed away – after so many rumors earlier in January that Stephen Hawking was dead.
Stephen William Hawking
Death Date : 14th March, 2018
Death Reason : Suffered from ALS
He was an English theoretical physicist, cosmologist, author and Director of Research at the Centre for Theoretical Cosmology within the University of Cambridge.
His scientific works include :
- a collaboration with Roger Penrose on gravitational singularity 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 out a theory of cosmology explained by a union of the general theory of relativity and quantum mechanics. He was a vigorous supporter of the many-worlds interpretation of quantum mechanics
