Hawking’s now 72 and one of the foremost physicists alive — a professor at the University of Cambridge, an investigator of black holes, and the author of bestselling book “A Brief History of Time”.

When he was 21, Stephen Hawking was diagnosed with motor neurone disease.
Doctors told him he had a few years to live.

Here is a quote showing Hawking’s approach to science
