Stephen Hawking is from Oxford England
Stephen Hawking is brilliant man probably the smartest in theworld. He has done amazing things such as he has a Ph.D. inphysics. and Dr. Hawking has researched black holes. Hi…s mostimportant discovery so far is that black holes emit X-rays andgamma-rays that can be detected by special scientific instruments. Dr. Hawking is the author of A Brief History of Time and Black Holes and Baby Universes and Other Essays. NOT onlythat but he was diagnosed with Lou Gehrigs disease at the age of21. That disease slowly weakens all the muscles in the body andeventually kills you.He is the longest living survivor of thedisease(MORE THAN 40 YEARS) It is very rare for it to be found onsuch a young man. So because of all he has done in improving ourworld while suffering from a horrible disease he has shownbrilliance in the arms of total failure when he could have givenup. Our world would not be the same without Stephen Hawking.
Stephen Hawking was born in Oxford, England.
Professor Stephen Hawking is a famous scientist in the field of Theoretical Physics, most notable for his work in helping to understand black holes. He has difficulty communic…ating due to a disease known as ALS which results in nerve degradation. He communicates via a binary sensor that detects when he twitches his cheek and sends that signal to his computer, allowing him to select words and phrases using text-to-speech software. Professor Hawking receives a new custom computer donated by Intel Corporation every couple of year.
He is a world renowned scientist, but unfortunantely he is wheel chair bound and unable to speak. he is on a wheel chair and can't speak because of the disease ALS of most c…ommonly know as Lou Gehrig's disease. It is a disease that slowly kills all nerves in the body and eventually kills you. he is the longest known survivor of this disease. And It is very rar for someone as young as he was(21) gets diagnosed with it.
Stephen Hawking is British. and one of the world's leading physicists and cosmologists. He has made numerous important contributions to those sciences, and is a leader in the …search for the TOE - the Theory of Everything. His email is S.W.Hawking@damtp.cam.ac.UK and his full name is Stephen William Hawking. He was born January 8th 1942. 300 years after Galileo's death. He was born in northern London. He went to collage and received his PH.D and was first a research fellow. Later he became a professional fellow at Gonville and Caius College. Stephen Hawking is a very good writer and he writes books for a living.
Stephen Hawking has recently argued that there is 'no place for a creator', that God does not exist. In his quantum cosmology "there would be no singularities at which the …laws of science broke down and no edge of space-time at which one would have to appeal to God or some new law to set the boundary conditions for space-time . . . The universe would be completely self-contained and not affected by anything outside itself. It would neither be created nor destroyed. It would just BE . . . What place, then, for a creator? " Hawking says that it is possible for the way the universe began to be determined by the laws of science. In that case, it would not be necessary to appeal to God to decide how the universe began. This doesn't prove that there is no God, only that God is not necessary. As someone who once corresponded with Stephen Hawking I can perhaps provide a more balanced and informative answer. Hawking takes an agnostic position on matters of religion. In other words, he isn't sure. He has repeatedly used the word "God" to illustrate points made in his books and public speeches. However, his belief in God is more from a deist point of view than Christian. Deism simply means the acknowledgement of a 'divine' (or otherwise) force or being that set the universe in motion, then left it to its own devices, rather than intervene through miracles, prayer and so on. However, this does not mean that Hawking is an out-and-out atheist. The last line in "A Brief History Of Time" is famous for saying that, if we could tie together the equations describing the universe, we would "know the mind of God." Cynics, and those who second-guess Hawking claim that he included this line simply so the book would sell better. However, his use of the 'God' metaphor in many of his speeches, collected essays and so on suggests otherwise - that he believes in something... even if it is the God of the Deist, or the laws of Physics. As an example, on page 8 of 'A brief History of Time' (Bantam 1988) he says: "One can imagine that God created the universe at literally any time in the past. On the other hand, if the universe is expanding, there may be physical reasons why there had to be a beginning. One could imagine that God created the universe at the instant of the big bang, or even afterwards in just such a way as to make it look as though there had been a big bang, but it would be meaningless to suppose that it was created before the big bang. An expanding universe does not preclude a creator, but it does place limits on when he might have carried out his job!" Hawking has stated that he is "not religious in the normal sense" and he believes that "the universe is governed by the laws of science. The laws may have been decreed by God, but God does not intervene to break the laws." This alone points clearly to a belief in some sort of God, whether a deist belief or not.

No, he is an atheist.
Stephen and Jane divorced in 1990. Sha had been having an affair with a choirmaster whose wife had died of leukemia. In 1995, Stephen married his nurse Elaine. They were divor…ced in 2006.
Where did Stephen Hawking do what? This is no question! I can at least give it an educated guess. 42.
he is alive because he is not dead, because he lives
