Stephen Hawking has been one of my personal heroes ever since my Uncle Ian gave me a copy of his seminal book, "A Brief History of Time", when I was a kid.

    As I read his ideas about space, time, black holes, and the Universe in which we live, I was amazed at how easily he explained the exciting but often complicated subjects explored in the book. I loved how he brought such inspiring theories to the public with a unique wit and insight, making previously baffling concepts fun.

    He is a man so brilliantly gifted that, despite being unable to use pen and paper, he is able to solve problems by constructing the necessary diagrams and manipulating the complex equations in his head. He has proved himself to be an important force in the development of the science of Cosmology, and is believed by many to be the greatest genius alive today.

    He now holds the esteemed position of Lucasian Professor of Mathematics in the Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics at Cambridge University, formerly held by Sir Isaac Newton.

    I have included a variety of resources. If you have suggestions for more or know of something I have overlooked, please send me email!
