• Almost as soon as he arrived at Camridge, he started developing symptoms of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis.• Supervisor was Dennis Sciama.• After gaining his Ph.D. he became first a Research Fellow and later on a Professorial Fellow at Gonville and Caius College.• the Royal Society 1974, the Order of the British Empire 1982, Companion of Honour 1989• Hawking is a member of of the Board of Sponsors of the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists.• In 1974, the Sherman Fairchild Distinguished Scholar• Hawkings achievements were made despite the increasing paralysis caused by the ALS.
• Hawkings principal fields of research are theoretical cosmology and quantum gravity.• In the late 1960s, new, complex mathematical model created from Albert Einsteins theory of general relativity.• This led, in 1970, to Hawking proving the first of many singularity theorems.• He supplied a mathematical proof of John Wheelers no-hair theorem , that any black hole is fully described by the three properties of mass, angular momentum, and electric charge.• Along with Thomas Hertog at CERN, in 2006 Hawking proposed a theory of "top-down cosmology„
• Hawkings many other scientific investigations have included the study of quantum cosmology, cosmic inflation, helium production in anisotropic Big Bang universes, large N cosmology, the density matrix of the universe, topology and structure of the universe, baby universes, Yang-Mills instantons and the S matrix, anti de Sitter space, quantum entanglement and entropy, the nature of space and time, including the arrow of time, spacetime foam, string theory, supergravity, Euclidean quantum gravity, the gravitational Hamiltonian, Brans-Dicke and Hoyle-Narlikar theories of gravitation, gravitational radiation, and wormholes.
• Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), sometimes known as Lou Gehrigs disease.• Symptoms of the disorder first appeared while he was enrolled at University of Cambridge• The diagnosis of motor neurone disease came when Hawking was 21
