Stephen Hawking's Birthday

He was born on January 8, 1942, in Oxford, England. At an early age, Hawking showed a passion for science and the sky. At age 21, while studying cosmology at the University of Cambridge, he was diagnosed with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, a condition that has progressed over the years. He is almost entirely paralysed and communicates through a speech generating device. Despite his debilitating illness, he has done ground-breaking work in physics and cosmology, and his several books have helped to make science accessible to everyone.
Happy Birthday Sir!
