Stephen Lawrence Hawking is a British theoretical Physicist, author, and professor who served a lengthy period as a university professor and University Lecturer. Stephen Hawking is the first person to mathematically model the workings of the universe using quantum theory. He has also written several science books on topics ranging from space travel to space physics. His most recent book is a best-seller written in collaboration with his wife Jane. In this book, Stephen Hawking discusses the prospects for humankind in the next decade and discusses some of the challenges that humankind must face in the next century.
Stephen Lawrence Hawking was born in Hertfordshire, England in 1942 and was described by his teacher as a very gifted boy with a gift for mathematics and science. He earned a degree at Cambridge University in 1947, but decided to continue his studies at Cambridge University where he earned a master’s degree in Mathematics in 1960. After retiring from Cambridge University, Stephen Hawking pursued a career in physics, teaching at University of Edinburgh, London, and University of Cambridge. He is currently the Director of Research at the Center for Theoretical Cosmology at Cambridge University, a post that he had held since 1970.
As far as I can tell, Stephen’s work on string theory and general relativity is what inspired me to read his book. In “The Grand Design”, which I read after doing some research on my own, I did not find much new, though it was interesting that he mentioned “the other half” as being responsible for the creation of the universe. It turns out that he was referring to his friend and colleague, quantum engineer Robert Forward, who did help him refine the black hole’s idea.
After reading the book, I have to say that I agree with some of Stephen’s interpretations of the results of particle physics and the big bang theory, though I differ with his thoughts about black holes. Stephen also seems to have an issue with NASA, although I do not know why. NASA has never been able to produce hard evidence of black holes, although they have made lots of great movies, including one called “Gravitation” which I enjoyed very much. I do agree that space is much bigger than we think, and that is probably due to the large amount of gas that makes up the moon and the sun. If you have ever looked at how close the moon is to the sun, you can appreciate this.
The movie “quartet” features one of Stephen’s friends, Joe Bennett, and another one of his colleagues, Bollinger. They play a game called “Quartet” in which they try to solve a series of enigmas. Stephen has appeared on a few television shows set around these games, such as “That Sunny Day”, and” Crime scene” – where he was played by none other than Michael Caine! Michael Caine is one of my favorite actors because he can do almost anything, whether it is acting music or just talking! He brings real depth to characters, especially those of a scientific bent.
“Stephen’s Theory of Relativity” also contains many interesting ideas regarding the theory of relativity. In fact, the movie “Gravitation” included a great deal of this type of theory, which is a refinement of the general theory. The main controversy concerning this theory was whether it correctly predicts the values for nearly all natural constants, like the speed of light and the Planck’s constant. Although the debate continues, Cates said that the biggest problem is that we still don’t understand everything about the universe. In fact, many mysteries remain to be solved.
Therefore, even though “Stephen’s Theory of Relativity” does not provide a new cosmology, it does provide us with another great actor to poke fun at, whether it is him playing a lead character or a villain.
