Wie begann das Universum? Was ist ein Schwarzes Loch? Und was passiert, wenn man eine Party für Zeitreisende schmeißt....? Als Stephen Hawking im Alter von 21 Jahren gesagt wurde, dass er nur noch ein paar Jahre zu leben habe, war er entschlossener denn je, die Antworten auf die großen Fragen des Lebens herauszufinden. Stephen, der als junger Mann die Diagnose einer motorischen Neuronkrankheit erhielt, trotzte den Widrigkeiten und lebte bis zum Alter von 76 Jahren - und seine wissenschaftlichen Entdeckungen veränderten die Welt..... Vom Bau von Modellflugzeugen als Kind über Reisen rund um den Globus bis hin zu einem Schwerelosigkeitsflug war Stephen Hawkings Leben von Anfang bis Ende außergewöhnlich.
Stephen Hawking is one of the most remarkable figures of our time, a Cambridge genius who has earned international celebrity as a brilliant theoretical physicist and become an inspiration and revelation to those who have witnessed his courageous triumph over disability. This is Hawking´s life story by Kitty Ferguson, who has had special help from Hawking himself and his close associates and who has a gift for translating the language of theoretical physics for non-scientists. Twenty years ago, Kitty Ferguson´s Stephen Hawking: Quest for a Theory of Everything became a Sunday Times bestseller and took the world by storm. She now returns to the subject to transform that short book into a hugely expanded, carefully researched, up-to-the-minute biography. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Carole Boyd.

The Extraordinary Life of Stephen Hawking:Extraordinary Lives
In 1963, Stephen Hawking was diagnosed with motor neuron disease and given two years to live. More than half a century later, Hawking had made some of the most significant contributions to our understanding of the universe since Albert Einstein. The world’s most famous physics professor, a best-selling author, and a father of three, Stephen lived his life to its fullest. Bridging the world of theoretical physics with the reach of pop culture, Stephen Hawking became an emblem of human determination and intellectual curiosity.Inside you will hear about:Early life and terminal illnessHawking radiation and black holesThe Hawking familyA gambling manLate life and deathAnd much more! 1.

The Extraordinary Life of Stephen Hawking: Kate Scott
Dr. Stephen William Hawking, British mathematician, theoretical physicist, and cosmologist, is the face of twenty-first century physics, and yet cannot speak directly to his audience. He is no longer able to move his limbs due to the incapacitating effects of ALS, Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis. The affliction is better known in the United States as ´´Lou Gehrig´s Disease,´´ named after the great American baseball player. Since 2009, in fact, Hawking can no longer operate his wheelchair. His desperate struggle to stay connected comes at a time in which the amassing of Hawking´s theories, developed over the past half-century, seems poised to discover and affirm new solutions to the mysteries of the universe. Occupying a unique place in the history of physics, Hawking, more than Newton or Einstein, lives in the perfect era from which to stand at the threshold of new possibilities for balancing and synchronizing the theories of General Relativity, put forth by his great predecessors, and the newer field of the quantum world, hinted at in the mid-twentieth century but only more recently brought forward by leading proponents. He has devoted the lion´s share of his adult life to ´´probing the space-time described by general relativity and the singularities where it breaks down,´´ and is, in advancing years, more driven than ever by the urge to uncover all he can about the nature of the larger universe. Stephen Hawking: The Life of the World´s Most Famous Scientist examines the life and career of the English physicist. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Nicholas Olivo.

Stephen Hawking Biography: The Life and Work of the World´s Famous Scientist in a Brief History of Time: Chris Dicker
Learn more about the renowned British scientist, professor, and author who spent his entire career trying to answer the question: ´´Where did the universe come from?´´ Stephen Hawking was born exactly three hundred years after the death of the scientist Galileo, so maybe it was written in the stars that he would become a famous scientist in his own right. Although he was diagnosed with a neurological disease at age 21, Stephen did not let the illness define his life. Known for his groundbreaking work in physics, and identified by his wheelchair and computerized voice system, Stephen continued his research until his death in 2018. He is best known for his black hole theories and his best-selling book A Brief History of Time. Stephen Hawking is an example of a person who had a great mind, but an even greater spirit.
