Stephen Hawking was born on 8 January 19942 (300 years after the death of Galiled ) in oxford, England. His parents house was in north London, but during the 2nd world war, oxford was considered a safe place to to have babies.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.

Stephen Hawking is an English theoretical physicist and cosmologist who is widely considered to be one of the greatest scientist alive today. He is currently directer of researcher at the center for theoretical cosmology university of Cambridge.
Hawking is known for furthering Einstein theory of general relativity with quantum theory. Awarded with CBE in 1982, he became a companion of honor in 1989. He received numerous awards medal and praises. Hawking is also a member of Royal Society and a member of the US National Academy of Sciences. He was honored with the Presidential award of Freedom in 2009.
He is now as the professor of Mathematics since 1979 opposition once held by sir Newton as the most famous scientist today he is considered as a living legend for his amazing contribution to quantum physics. A highly successful active lecturer and author, Hawking make use of adaptive communication system known as Equalizer he has authored a book and several scientific papers and lectures though he capable of speaking at mere rate of 15 words per minute.
Hawking 1988 book "A Brief History of Times" quickly and instant best seller and was translated into 30 languages. It has sold over 10 million copies worldwide to date. His 2001 book "The Universe in a Nutshell" is held masterpiece in history of modern physics.
Stephen Hawking got married to Jane Wilde a language student 1965 and together they have 3 children. The couple got separated 1991 as off 1990s Hawking has been completely paralyzed.
Over the course of his career Hawking studied the basic laws governing the universe. He proposed that as the universe has beginning - The Big Bank- It likely will have an ending. He demonstrated the Einstein general relativity suggest that space and time began at the birth of universe and ends within in  black holes, which implies that Einstein theory and quantum theory must be united.
Using the two basic theories together HAWKING also determined that black holes are not totally but instead emit radiation ,He in 2009 revised his theory even writing that ''there are no black holes'' at least in the way that cosmologist traditionally understand them,His theory removed the existence of an ''event horizon''the point where nothing can escape.Instead he proposed that there would be an'' apparent horizon''  that would alter according to quantum change with the black hole.But the theory remained controversial .

Hawking also proposed that the universe itself has no boundary much like the Earth .Although the planet is finite one can travel around through it[and through the universe]infinities never encountering a wall that would be described as the end.
