Stephen Hawking

Stephen Hawking was one of the most well-known theoretical physicists of all time

Stephen Hawking was born into an intellectual family. His father, Frank Hawking, was a medical researcher and his mother, Isobel Hawking, was a talented mathematician. He also had two sisters who were both active scientists in their own right.



One of the most important contributions to science that Stephen Hawking made was theoretical work on black holes.

A black hole is created when a star dies. The gravity of the star is so strong that it keeps pulling things in, compressing everything to a point called its singularity.
