Here are 10 interesting insights into the life and viewpoints of Stephen Hawking. Sure, Stephen Hawking is a brilliant, groundbreaking scientist, but that's not all the man is about. Here are 10 interesting insights into his life and his views. Number 10. He believes Earth is on its last legs. He gives the planet a thousand years before it succumbs to its own fragility. Hawking recommends people start shopping around space for a new home base. Number 9. Stephen Hawking attended an all-girls school for a time. His family moved to St. Albans while his father was working in a nearby city. It was there that he and a few other boys attended St. Albans High School for Girls. Number 8. In his youth his nickname was 'Einstein'. Despite the fact that his grades were mediocre, his aptitude was noticed by teachers and students alike. They were right, as he later earned a nearly perfect score on his Oxford scholarship physics exam -- and went on to become a highly celebrated genius. Number 7. He believes black holes are different from what we think they are. The vortices of doom are said to have event horizons, which serve as both an entrance and a point of no return. Hawking says they don't. Rather, they have 'apparent horizons' and only briefly trap energy and matter, later releasing it as radiation. Number 6. At 21 Hawking was told he only had a few years to live. He was diagnosed with ALS, also called Lou Gehrig's disease, and that the outlook was grim. In January of 2014 the physicist celebrated his 72nd birthday. Number 5. He's also a children's book author. In 2007 he and his daughter Lucy published 'George's Secret Key to the Universe', the first book in a series about a young space traveler. Number 4. He's a big fan of zero gravity. Hawking was among the first with his disability to test out the technology that can send a plane to near space, and in the process got a few moments away from his wheelchair. Said one person who was there, "He would have flown more if we let him." Number 3. His voice synthesizer talks in American, but Hawking is British. He and the Queen of England recently had a chuckle about it. She ran into the scientist at an event and asked, 'Have you still got that American voice?' Hawking replied, 'Yes, it is copyrighted actually'. Number 2. He's a repeat guest on the Simpsons. According to Hawking his several appearances on the show as himself have some people thinking he's actually a cartoon character. Number 1. Hawking doesn't believe God created the universe. For that matter, he doesn't believe in fate, heaven, or an afterlife. He does believe that each human has one chance to appreciate the world and its mysteries.
Brett Jones: so sad
EthanWatts321: 11) he is dead
Plushie Link: MADA Facka, that bastard doesn’t believe in god. Somethings wrong with him. God is obviously the creator of EVERYTHING. That idiot didn’t open his eyes wide enough to see the greatness that god has created for us.
Basketball Players: Just look at the smile on his face when he was in zero gravity

bing wing: Actually #1 was very stupid from a guy (called genius) like him.
I heard him in one of his documentaries on the universe saying at the end of the emission that since time is another dimension of our universe therefore time didn't exist before the universe creation therefore there is no God that created our universe because saying so means the creator existed before the universe in time which is a contradiction.
Which of course is a stupid statement and the logical statement would be since we don't know what existed before the universe we can't say if there was time or not, or if there was another dimension like time or even with absence of such concept or dimensions how things worked.
The logical answer is we can't tell since we don't know NOT god doesn't exist or didn't create the universe but the poor guy was focusing on trying to proof his point of view instead of seeking for the truth.
Gil Faver: He was an atheist, he thought humans were nothing more than advanced apes, he never took the mind into consideration as being the final frontier. All he did was look for the smallest particle. He was boring. I read his book and through it out.
