Although he was diagnosed with a neurological disease at age 21, Stephen did not let the illness define his life. Known for his groundbreaking work in physics, and identified by his wheelchair and computerized voice system, Stephen continued his research until his death in 2018. He is best known for his black hole theories and his best-selling book u003ciu003eA Brief History of Timeu003c/iu003e. Stephen Hawking is an example of a person who had a great mind, but an even greater spirit.
