Stephen Hawking (born 8th January 1942) was an English born theoretical physicist who worked on the physics of black holes. Before passing, Hawking was director of research at the Centre for Theoretical Cosmology at the University of Cambridge. At the age of 22, Hawking was diagnosed with a rare form of Motor Neurone Disease – the nerves that controlled his muscles began to fail, as he became trapped in his body (paralysed). Despite this, Hawking authored numerous books throughout his career and gave science lectures around the world. The perseverance and humour resonated with the public as much as his work did. Stephen Hawking died on the 14th March 2018, at the age of 76.
