Stephen William Hawking. The Writer Term Paper

Excerpt from Term Paper :



It is almost as if Hawking wants science and religion to agree.

He also uses a sense of humor often times to get his point across. In UIAN, he uses visual jokes, written puns and several witticisms to get you in a light mood to keep going through the book and picking up the important ideas that are in there. His life work has been dissecting these questions and proposing answers and it seems important to him to get the reader and his listeners, students and followers excited with him.

Hawking's mother spent part of her life in dangerous places during World War II. His mother went to live in a safe town and gave birth to Stephen.

The family were soon back together living in Highgate, north London, where Stephen began his schooling.

In 1950 Stephen's father moved to the Institute for Medical Research in Mill Hill. The family moved to St. Albans so that the journey to Mill Hill was easier. Stephen attended St. Albans High School for Girls (which took boys up to the age of 10). When he was older he attended St. Albans school but his father wanted him to take the scholarship examination to go to Westminster public school."

As a child "Hawking wanted to specialize in mathematics in his last couple of years at school where his mathematics teacher had inspired him to study the subject. However Hawking's father was strongly against the idea and Hawking was persuaded to make chemistry his main school subject. Part of his father's reasoning was that he wanted Hawking to go to University College, Oxford, the College he himself had attended, and that College had no mathematics fellow."

One of his most well-known ideas is:

that both time and href='https://www.paperdue.com/topic/space-essays'>space are finite in extent, but they don't have any boundary or edge.... there would be no singularities, and the laws of science would hold everywhere, including at the beginning of the universe."

Hawking was also diagnosed with an immune disorder that eventually put him in a wheelchair. "Although the disease eventually confined him to a wheelchair and forced him to use a computer-generated voice synthesizer to communicate, he continued to teach and to lecture and began his research in cosmology. In 1971 Hawking provided mathematical support for the big-bang theory of the origin of the universe; he showed that if the general theory of relativity was correct the universe must have a singularity, or starting point, in space-time."

CONCLUSION

Stephen William Hawking is arguably the most entertaining and brilliant researchers of the universe in modern time. His ideas about the black hole, religion and other aspects of science, time and existence are well-known. He is able to put them into laymen terms for the people he teaches and with that ability excites others about the things that excite him. He is someone who has laid the foundation for future study and who will provide the world with a blueprint to follow long after he is gone.
