STEPHEN HAWKING is a British theoretical physicist and cosmologist at the University of Cambridge. His scientific work ranges from gravitational singularity theorems in the framework of general relativity and the theoretical prediction that black holes emit radiation, often called Hawking radiation. He was the first to set forth a theory of cosmology explained by a union of the general theory of relativity and quantum mechanics.
