Stephen Hawking, a name world would never forget… the man who pointed at singularity…the man who made the black hole to emit a radiation.
He was a superhero for every kid who dreamt of becoming a scientist.
It all started in my 10th class, when I heard his lecture on Hawkins radiation. It didn’t take me much time to make him as my super hero..
When Superman, batman get sucked into a black hole because of its huge gravitational pull, my superhero sent a ray of hope out of black hole…he called it Hawkins radiation…
And that’s how I threw comics n started reading physics.
Hawking “sitting on a wheel chair with a computer converting his thoughts into speech” ohh god, wt a damm geeky genius..but the most brilliant mind on earth, suffered a rare disease.
Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis – this disease affects nerve cells controlling our muscles..these nerve cells die and eventually all muscles loose control.. initially can involve hands and foot, sometimes speech.. later involves almost every muscle in body and paralyzes a person completely.
Unfortunately, this disease doesn’t have any cure till date. There are few drugs to control progression of disease but no cure have been achieved yet.
Newer research is made on SOD1 gene, which is implicated in causing amyotrophic lateral sclerosis..genetic alterations in sod1 can help in cure.
A yet another research targets stem cells where attempt is made to produce new neurons which can replace the lost ones.
Hope, we might have cure for this amytropic lateral sclerosis in near future.
Hawkins left us, but his theories keep him alive within you and me..
Mr.Hawkins..hope you will be enjoying ur cosmos tour.
Bye bye genius…
