Author Info
Stephen W. Hawking
Born in Oxford, England, Hawking studied at Oxford and Cambridge, and became Lucasian Professor of Mathematics at Cambridge in 1979. His work in general relativity has led to a search for a quantum theory of gravity to explain black holes and the Big Bang. Around the time of the publication of his book, "The Large Scale Structure of Space-Time" in 1973, he published his results that black holes could emit particles in the form of thermal radiation, now known as Hawking radiation. Hawking suffered from Lou Gehrig's Disease (amyothropic lateral sclerosis), a rare, progressive, and incurable neuromoter disease that has rendered him almost completely paralyzed. Although he was confined to a wheelchair and able to speak only through a mechanical apparatus, Hawking continued to conduct cutting-edge research and be recognized as the preeminent scientist of his era.
Praise
"While scientific implausibilities and faux pas abound (warp speed is out of the question), he reports that Trek inventions like holodecks are theoretically possible."
