Stephan Hawking was a famous British scientist, a professor, an author of a plenty of scientific works on quantum physics and one of the most respected cosmologists in the world. He was born in 1942 in Oxford, and in 1962 he received the Bachelor diploma in math at University College, Oxford. In 1966 he was awarded a Ph.D. degree for his work on the Big Bang and Steady State theories. In 1974, he became a member of London Queen's community, and in 1977 he became a Professor in gravitation physics. In 1979 Hawkins was given an honorary doctorate in math in Cambridge University. In 1982 he was appointed as a Commander of the Order of the British Empire, and 1988, for his scientific works on black holes, together with R. Penrose, Hawking received the Wolf Prize, one of the most prestigious awards in the world of science.
