Stephen Hawking was born in Oxford on 8th January 1942.
Hawking worked extensively on the subject of black holes and provided theories for their behavior, including the idea that they emit radiation.
He was diagnosed with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, which is a very rare form of motor neurone disease when he was just 22 years old. The disease continued to progress and over the years, Hawking has been almost entirely paralyzed. He cannot talk but uses a speech generating equipment to communicate.
