TIMELINE
2009

Hawking retired as Lucasian Professor of Mathematics in 2009, owing to University rules and regulations

2007

He participated in zero-gravity flight in a ‘Vomit Comet’, courtesy of Zero Gravity Corporation, during which he experienced weightlessness eight times in 2007

2005

Hawking’s physical condition is deteriorating day by day; he began to control his communication device with movements of his cheek muscles in 2005, which may lead to a risk of locked-in syndrome

2001

He made constant appearance on television during this period, in documentaries like—‘The Real Stephen Hawking (2001)’, ‘Stephen Hawking: Profile (2002)’, ‘Hawking (2004)’, ‘Stephen Hawking, Master of the Universe (2008)’, etc

1995

He took a divorce from Jane and married Manson in 1995

1993

A famous collection of essays, interviews and talk titled ‘Black Holes and Baby Universes and Other Essays’ was published in 1993

1988

Hawking gained the international prominence for the first time in 1988 with the publication of ‘A Brief History of Time’

1982

In 1982, Hawking and Gary Gibbons organized a Nuffield Workshop on the topic ‘The Very Early Universe’ at Cambridge University, which focused principally on the cosmological inflation theory

1980

During the late 1980, Hawking got involved in an affair with one of his nurses, Elaine Manson and left Jane for her

1979

He gradually started losing control over his speech and it became increasing difficult to understand him but that this did not stop him from getting appointed as the Lucasian Professor of Mathematics at the Cambridge University in 1979

1977

Jane met organist Jonathan Hellyer Jones while singing in a church choir in 1977 and they developed a love relationship but Hawking did not object to it saying that as long as she still loved him, he is alright with their platonic relationship

1975

He started to get more recognition for his discoveries through his print and TV interviews and in 1975 he was awarded the Eddington Medal and the Pius XI Gold Medal, followed by the Dannie Heineman Prize, the Maxwell Prize, etc

1973

Hawking visited Moscow in 1973 and his discussions with Yakov Borisovich Zel'dovich and Alexei Starobinsky helped him to come up with ‘Hawking radiation’

1970

In 1970, Hawking discovered the second law of black hole dynamics— that the event horizon of a black hole can never get smaller

1968

Hawking became a member of the Institute of Astronomy in Cambridge in 1968 and the discoveries of cosmologist, Roger Penrose, on black hole really fascinated him as he himself was working on the phenomena that began the Universe

1962

In 1962, he graduated with honors, and went on to attend the University of Cambridge for a Ph

1942

Hawking was born on 8 January 1942 in Oxford, England, to Frank and Isobel Hawking
