Summary Note Stephen Hawking advanced our understanding of the universe more than any other scientist of his day. He spent his entire life chasing the idea of a 'Theory of Everything', to explain the entire universe, relating to the Big Bang Theory. He said that the aim of scientists is to experience the joy of discovering something that no one has ever known before. Stephen Hawking's career was intrinsically tied to his impact on society. He wrote his book, A Brief History of Time, to explain physics not to just scientists, but to anyone who was interested. It made him one of the most famous scientists in the world. Later in his life, as a sufferer of ALS, Hawking became an inspirational story of living with disability, and chasing your dreams regardless. This colourfully illustrated, beautifully designed biography will captivate young readers and teach them what Hawking learned about black holes and time, how he discovered how the universe began, and why he believed that humans must live on other planets. Through his life, it gives an insight into how Hawking's discoveries have changed our understanding of the world around us forever!
