Despite being physically handicapped, the desire to live has brought him in front of the world as a great man who has no match. Great scientist Stephen William Hawking suffered from Motor Neuron Disease and joined the Newton and Einstein fraternity.
Birth & Early Life
Stephen Hawking was born on January 8, 1, 1942, in a good educated family of Frank and Isabel Hawking in Oxford City. From an early age, Hawking was full of infinite intelligence.

You will be surprised to know that Stephen Hawking today is such a great cosmologist, his schooling was not very excellent. From his childhood, Stephen had a keen interest in mathematics since he was initially a student with fewer marks in his class, but he enjoyed playing board games.
In his childhood, he had made computers from parts of old electronic devices with the help of some people to solve mathematical equations. But his father wanted to make him a doctor. Well, because of the absence of mathematical subjects at that time, he started taking up the subject of physics and studying further, with the advice of Indian scientist “Jayant Narlikar”, he went on to select the subject of cosmology by keeping his mathematical subjects in mind. He passed his Oxford University examination for his PhD and started his further studies.
Stephen Hawking disease, Disability & Discovery
Stephen Hawking was 21 when he discovered about the disease. He was at his house for a holiday, he was descending from the ladder, suddenly he became unconsciousness and immediately fell down.

Gradually, Hawking’s physical ability began to decline. He started using crutches and stopped lecturing regularly. The limbs of his body slowly stopped working.
Despite this, Stephen Hawking’ he never gave up. He travelled, participated in public programs and was engaged in research work till his death . Hawkings provided many important ideologies to the world and made his incomparable contribution in the field of space science.
He gave the concept of black hole to the world. In his own words “Although I can not walk and talk through the computer, I am free from my mind.”
Stephen Hawkings married his girlfriend Jane Wild in 1965, who divorced him in 1995, Hawking’s second marriage was to Elaine Mason in 1995, who divorced him in 2006. His first wife, Jane Wilde, was very religious while Hawking always challenged God’s existence. Which eventually lead to their split.
