Happy 71st, Stephen Hawking
Some know him as a cosmologist. Others know him as theoretical physicist. But regardless of how you know him, once thing is certain: Stephen Hawking has made quite a name for himself. In 2009 he was awarded the highest civilian award in the US, the Presidential Medal of Freedom. During the rewards ceremony, President Omaba said, “From his wheelchair he’s led us on a journey to the farthest and strangest reaches of the cosmos. In so doing, he has stirred our imagination and shown us the power of the human spirit here on Earth.” (view ceremony video below)
His work with science has engaged the imagination of experts his books have sparked interest in people around the world. Despite living with a debilitating disease, Stephen Hawking possesses a positive attitude and his achievements inspire hope in many. We have so much respect for this man, and we hope he celebrates a wonderful 71st birthday today.
