Stephen Hawking was born on January 8, 1942, in Oxford, England to parents Frank and Isobel Hawking. His mother was Scottish.
Despite their family’s financial constraints, both parents attended Oxford University, where Frank read medicine and Isobel read philosophy, politics, and economics.
He began his undergraduate education at Oxford University in October 1959 at the age of 17. These unflattering study habits made sitting at the World Cup a challenge, and he decided to answer only theoretical physics questions rather than those that required real-world knowledge. A first-class honors degree was a requirement for admission to his postgraduate course in cosmology at the University of Cambridge.
After receiving a BA (Hons) First Class in Natural Sciences and completing a trip to Iran with a friend, he began his postgraduate work at Trinity Hall, Cambridge, in October 1962. Hawking received a research fellowship at Gonville and Caius College; He received his Ph.D. Degree in Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics, Specialization in General Relativity and Cosmology, March 1966; His essay “Singularities and the Geometry of Spacetime” shared the highest honors with one by Penrose for winning the prestigious Adams Prize that year. Hawking has been married twice and has three children, including Lucy Hawking.
Hawking’s scientific work includes collaborations with Roger Penrose on theories of singular gravity within the framework of general relativity and the theoretical prediction that black holes emit radiation, often called Hawking radiation. He was a strong proponent of the many-worlds interpretation of quantum mechanics.
He was an Honorary Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts, a life member of the Pontifical Academy of Sciences, and a recipient of the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the highest civilian award in the United States. He was a Professor of Mathematics at Cambridge University between 1979 and 2009 and had commercial success with works of popular science in which he discusses his own theories and cosmology in general; His book “A Brief History of Time” appeared in the British newspaper “Sunday Times” bestseller list for 237 weeks, breaking the record.
