Stephen Hawking was a famous physic and cosmologist. In his early life he attended a university college, Oxford where he studied physics despite his fathers desire for him to study medicine. Through out his life Stephen Hawking has attended and worked at many colleges, where he took the position of Lucasian Professor of Mathematics. This position was previously held by Isaac Newton. Stephen Hawking has been a major inspirational contribution to physics. however at the age of 21 Hawking was given approximately two years to live after he was diagnosed with Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ASL).His disease cost him almost all of his neuromuscular control. Despite living with against all odds Stephen Hawking never gave up in fact , he reviewed Einstein's theories and found out that black holes do exist and that Einstein's theory of relativity had a role in the big bang. One of Stephens most influential spark in theoretical physics is his Theory of Everything which would have given us an answer to why and how the universe started and works. Come to find out Hawking gave up on this theory 30 years later. Stephen Hawking has won countless medals and awards. Stephen Hawking has made over a dozen books and several lectures on all his main theories and discoveries in science. unfortunately Stephen Hawking passed away on March 14, 2018 at the age of 76. In the sites listed below you will find credible information on the life of Stephen Hawking before and after he was diagnosed with Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ASL).

Stephen Hawking's History & Lecture

Once you visit this site, the first thing you are brought to is a brief history of Stephen Hawking and his accomplishments. If you fumble through the tabs on the site, you will find much more about Stephen Hawking. This website gives you a Q&A certain subjects and also his view on his motor neuron disease which seems to not have affected him much in his successful life. Also, you will be able to read all his lectures that he proposed and gave on his science research. This site is easy to access and use, but the reading of his lectures are quite dense with physics and his theories, so be prepared if you want to take that challenge on. The accuracy of this site is 100 percent correct, because the authors of this site were assistants to Stephen Hawking and much of the information about his life is given by Hawking himself and all the lectures he obviously wrote.

Stephen Hawking's Time Machine
This site gives an article about the idea of time traveling which was brought up first by Einstein, but Stephen Hawking goes in depth about the ways of time travel. Hawking explains how time is the 4th dimension and how it plays out in the universe. Also he explains why time travel is actually possible and how it is possible in easier terms than just a pure physic lesson. He also explains why one idea of time travel may be impossible due to paradoxes. This site is easy to use, mostly because its only one article, but the bright side is that it's very understandable. Hawking uses analogies to help the reader better understand his concepts of time travel. This site is fairly updated the article was written in May of 2010, and is very accurate.

Hawking's (TOE) Theory of Everything Ends
This site is about Stephens Theory of Everything he thought of 30 years ago, that would explain the universe and everything in it by physics and mathematics. Last year he finally admitted that there is no Theory of Everything and he explains what the theory was all based on. When reading this article you might have some issue's with some vocabulary, but you can always look them up on the internet for clarification. This site is aimed at more radical thinkers of science because it does go in depth about certain theories which some may not know about. This is also fairly new since it was published last year.
