Stephen Hawking's 80th birthday is celebrated by Google Doodle

Stephen Hawking's 80th birthday is celebrated by Google Doodle ...

Saturday's Google Doodle honors Stephen Hawking, possibly the most famous scientist of his time, who sought to explain the universe to millions of people, in honor of the late Stephen Hawking.

The respected British cosmologist's work focuses on raising our understanding of black holes -- dying stars that've escalated upon themselves, forming a core of such density and strong gravitational attraction that none, even light, can escape.

Google has dedicated a video Doodle to Hawking in the 2 minute-long pixilated video that depicts a black hole in the center of the illustration. The two-minute-long, pixilated clip, a computer-generated voice similar to Hawking's recounts his distinguished life, as well as quotes on life and the universe that reflect his unwavering optimism.

His development continued as he was diagnosed with Lou Gehrig's disease, a condition known as Lou Gehrig's disease, which gradually paralyzed him at the age of 21.

His family, who approved of the computer-generated voice narrating the video, stated on Google that he would have been pleased to see the story of his life shown in a short but engaging film.

Stephen Hawking of the University of Cambridge Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics is a member of the Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics.

"He would have thought it important to show that he never permitted the difficulty of his physical condition to limit his power of expression or his desire to be a part of the world in which he lived," his family said. "We hope that his example provides inspiration and hope to all who face extraordinary challenges at this difficult time."

After the theory that black holes emit radiation that would eventually evaporate, often referred to as Hawking radiation, one of his most important contributions was that he regarded his 1970 discovery as the result of a mistake in his calculation, but was eventually convinced that his formula was accurate.

Hawking was also a prolific author, writing to explain the origin and expansion of the universe to readers unfamiliar with scientific theories. His 1988 book A Brief History of Time was enormously popular, with more than 10 million copies sold and translated into 35 languages. It also spawned similar books by Hawking, including The Universe in a Nutshell and A Briefer History of Time.

Doodler Matthew Cruickshank illustrated the Doodle, who stated that Hawking's visual approaches were greatly influenced by the advancement of computer graphics over his lifetime.

Google's favorite videos have lasted many years.
