Quantum Mechanics and the Grandfather of Modern Physics
Stephen Lawrence Hawking was born in 1926 in Reading, England. Stephen is known as one of few theoretical physicists who had a successful life studying physics and mathematics, even while serving his time in the British Army during World War II. After the war he continued on with his studies and earned a PHD from Cambridge University in 1950. In his most famous book "A Brief History of Time," he gives a detailed description of our past and future as well as a description of the universe.
Although some disagree with his theories regarding the nature of space, time, and gravity, Professor Stephen Hawking is still highly respected by many scientists and other individuals around the world. Many scientists have studied his work and have followed his theory concerning the future of the human race and the nature of space. As well, a number of pop culture scientists have done their own versions of his theory concerning black holes and the future of the universe. It has been interesting to follow his work and watch how it develops over the years.
Recently, a movie was made about Professor Stephen's life and work, as well as his theories concerning black holes and the universe. Although not particularly good by modern standards, the movie did bring about many new fans and helped raise interest in this very important subject. It is interesting to follow this scientist's work, both in the field of science and in Hollywood. His fame and reputation should never be underestimated.
