Latest Stephen Hawking Stories
Renowned cosmologist Stephen Hawking will retire from his prominent Cambridge University position at the end of the academic year in September, but plans to continue his study of space and time, the university said Friday.
Here's what didn't happen on Sept. 10th: The world did not end. Switching on the world's largest and most powerful particle accelerator near Geneva, Switzerland, did not trigger the creation of a microscopic black hole.
Stephen Hawking, best selling author of "A Brief History of Time" and the children's book "George's Secret Key to the Universe" written along with his daughter Lucy, will be sending his digitized DNA into space as part of NCsoft's(R) Operation Immortality(TM).
Physicists at Penn State have provided a mechanism by which information can be recovered from black holes, those regions of space where gravity is so strong that, according to Einstein's theory of general relativity, not even light can escape. The team's findings pave the way toward ending a decades-long debate sparked by renowned physicist Steven Hawking. The team's work will be published in the 20 May 2008 issue of the journal Physical Review Letters.
Famed astrophysicist Stephen Hawking has been thinking a lot about the cosmic question, "Are we alone?" The answer is probably not, he says.
Stephen Hawking should be pleased. The first signs of an effect the British physicist predicted more than 30 years ago â€“ known as Hawking radiation â€“ have finally materialized from the simulated edge of a black hole.
Free of his wheelchair and tethered only to heart rate and blood pressure monitors, astrophysicist Stephen Hawking on Thursday fulfilled a dream of floating weightless on a zero-gravity jet, a step he hopes leads to further space adventures.
Astrophysicist Stephen Hawking, who has been confined to a wheelchair for most of his adult life, expects weightlessness to feel like "bliss" when he goes on a "zero-gravity" flight Thursday aboard a refitted jet.
Scientists have established that quantum information cannot be â€˜hiddenâ€™ in conventional ways, or in Braunsteinâ€™s words, "quantum information can run but it canâ€™t hide." This result gives a surprising new twist to one of the great mysteries about black holes.
Astrophysicist Stephen Hawking says he wants to undertake a zero-gravity flight aboard an airplane this year as a precursor to a journey into space, a newspaper reported Monday
- A poem in which the author retracts something said in an earlier poem.
