On Saturday to mark the 80th birthday, Google honored English cosmologist, author, and physicist Stephen Hawking with a cartoon video on its homepage. The video traces Hawking’s life and work, according to a scientist himself who built it with the consent of his relative.
Today’s video Doodle celebrates one of the most influential scientific minds in history, the English cosmologist, author, and physicist Stephen Hawking. From the collision of the black holes to the Big Bang, his views on the origins and engineering of the world transformed modern physics while his best-selling books made the field widely available to millions of students worldwide.
Stephen Hawking’s 80th Birthday
Stephen William Hawking was born on this day in 1942 in Oxford, England. Impressed by how the universe operated since he was a child, his curiosity and ingenuity led him to be nicknamed “Einstein.” After a diagnosis of 21-year-old neurodegenerative disease, composer Richard Wagner’s music and the loving support of his future wife Jane Wilde inspired Hawking to dedicate himself to physics, mathematics, and cosmology.
In 1965, Hawking defended his doctoral dissertation at the University of Cambridge, “Properties of Expanding Universes,” which introduced the evolutionary theory that space and time evolved into unity, an infinitely smaller and dense concept, widely known today as a key factor. of black holes. That same year, Hawking was accepted as a researcher at Cambridge’s Gonville and Caius College – his lifelong home for research. Hawking’s fascination with black holes led to his discovery in 1974 that particles could escape from black holes. This theory, built on Hawking radiation, is widely regarded as his most important contribution to physics.
In 1979, Hawking’s chief work in the black mines prompted Cambridge to nominate him as the Lucasian Professor of Mathematics, a position held by Isaac Newton in 1669. Hawking’s medical dissertation was released publicly in 2017 on the Cambridge University website, which crashed due to his medical condition. large amounts of traffic.
