The Extraordinary Life of Stephen Hawking
  • The Extraordinary Life of Stephen Hawking

  • Stephen Hawking was:

    A scientist

    A genius

    An inspiration

    When Stephen Hawking was told at the age of twenty-one that he only had a few years to live, it made him more determined than ever to find out the answers to life's big questions.

    Diagnosed with motor-neurone disease as a young man, Stephen defied the odds and lived to the age of 76 - and his scientific discoveries changed the world.

    From building model aeroplanes as a child to travelling all over the globe and experiencing a zero-gravity flight, Stephen Hawking's life was extraordinary from beginning to end.
