Check out Some Predictions by Stephen Hawking Proven True
VIVA – Stephen Hawking is one of the greatest theoretical physicists of modern times. He is best known for his media appearances and his lifelong battle against the illness. Beginning with his doctoral thesis in 1966, his groundbreaking work continued unabated until his final study in 2028 was completed just days before his death at the age of 76.
Hawking worked in the intellectual field of physics and his theories often seemed strange at the time he formulated them. However, it was slowly accepted into the scientific mainstream with new supporting evidence coming in all the time.
From his amazing thinking about black holes, and his explanation of the simple beginning of the universe, here are some of his theories that have been proven come true and some still in doubt, as quoted from the Live Science website, Saturday, December 3, 2022.
Stephen Hawking began his success with a doctoral thesis written when there was a heated debate between two competing cosmological theories, the Big Bang and the Steady State. Both theories accept that the universe is evolving. In his thesis, Hawking showed that the Steady State theory was mathematically contradictory.
Instead, he argued that the universe began as a very small and very dense point m, called a singularity. Today, Stephen Hawking's description is almost universally accepted among scientists.
