He was also the director of Research Department of the Center for Theoretical Cosmology of the University of Cambridge. He gave many important principles to the world including Hawking Radiation, Penrose-Hawking Theories, Beckstein-Hawking Formula, Hawking Energy. His work became the basis of many research. Stephen Hawking has made a significant contribution in understanding the black hole and big bang theory.
He had 12 honorary degrees. He was awarded the highest civilian honor of America. His book ‘A Brief History of Time’ was widely discussed on the mysteries of the universe. In this book, he had made tehelies around the world by claiming new discoveries about the development of the Big Bang theory, the black hole, the light cone and the universe.

In 1963, he was diagnosed with this disease. Then the doctors said that Stephen would be able to survive for only two years. Despite this, Hawking went to Cambridge University for further studies and emerged as a great scientist.
Only 32 years old, in the year 1974, Hawking became the youngest member of Britain’s prestigious Royal Society. Five years later he was appointed as a professor of mathematics at Cambridge University. This post was ever appointed by the great scientist Albert Einstein.
