Stephen W. Hawking, "Quantum Black Holes"

April 14, 2016

Stephen Hawking, a theoretical cosmologist who holds the Stephen W Hawking chair of cosmology at Cambridge University, was the long-serving Lucasian Professor of Mathematics at Cambridge, the same post held by Sir Isaac Newton. Stephen’s 50-year academic career, centered on black holes and the origins of the universe, has been exceptionally distinguished, with too many honours and prizes to name them all. The list includes Companion of Honour to Queen Elizabeth II, member of the Pontifical Academy of Sciences, holder of The Copley Medal, the Albert Einstein Medal, the Eddington Medal, the Presidential Medal of Freedom and the Fundamental Physics Prize. A prolific commentator on important public, cultural and scientific issues, Stephen has used his high profile to highlight the dangers faced by the human race, including global warming, overpopulation of planet Earth and caution over Artificial Intelligence.
