        The Life and Research of Stephen Hawking | Hawking

        Not only is Stephen Hawking one of the most brilliant scientists of our time, but one of the most inspirational stories of overcoming adversity and disease to triumph in our society. Having struggled with a crippling disability for the entirety of his adult life, Stephen Hawking defied the odds by excelling in his field and becoming an global icon for a new generation of scientists and theorists. This video, compiled from excerpts taken from the documentary Hawking, shows the life of Stephen Hawking through his adventurous childhood and early education, his adulthood characterized by disease and hardship, and culminating with his publication of A Brief History of Time and his becoming one of the most significant minds of the 21st Century.
