Google celebrated Stephen Hawking’s 80th birthday on 8 January with a special animated doodle. It features a two-and-a-half-minute video of the physicist in his own computer-generated voice showcasing his contribution to the faith and his battle with neurodegenerative disease – an affected health condition.
Stephen Hawking is one of the most famous scientists of his age and has a distinguished reputation, along with his famous ideas about black holes and the Big Bang. In addition to his contributions to modern physics, his best-selling books have made the field widely available to millions of readers around the world.
Google has coined a new doodle in honor of the English cosmologist and shared a glimpse of his journey through a dedicated post. Clicking on the doodle will take users to the post. Stephen William Hawking was born in 1942 in Oxford, England. The video further shows how the biggest mystery of the universe was discovered despite suffering from neurodegenerative disease at the age of 21.
In 1965, Hawking defended his doctoral dissertation “Properties of the Expanding Universe” at the University of Cambridge, which revolutionized the theory that space and time evolved from a singularity, a point infinitely smaller and denser, Which is the main feature of today. Of black hole. Hawking then began his career as a research fellow at Gonville and Keyes College, Cambridge.
In 1974, Hawking discovered that particles could escape from black holes. This theory, called Hawking radiation, is considered one of his most important contributions to physics. In 1979, Hawking’s work on black holes prompted Cambridge to appoint him as the Lucasian Professor of Mathematics, a position held by Isaac Newton in 1669.
Hawking’s doctoral dissertation was published to the public in 2017 on the website of the University of Cambridge, due to the huge amount of accidental traffic. He passed away in 2018 at the age of 76.
The Google doodle was painted by artist Matthew Krikshank, and the tech giant has confirmed that Stephen Hawking’s voice was created and used in the doodle with the approval of the Hawking Estate.
