Happy Birthday Prof.Stephen HawkinsDr Stephen Hawkins reaching yet another milestone in his life – his 76th birthday
The Cambridge physicist is turning 76 today –Monday, Jan 8, 2018.
He was diagnosed with ALS at the age of 21, the mankind's most destructive disease –first causing muscle weakness, then paralysis, and then robbing the victim of the ability to speak, swallow and even breathe. The result is death.
But, as many other aspects of his life he defied all odds and survived.
The world's most famous scientist continues to carry out research, write and deliver lectures.
I wish him a very happy birthday!
