Professor Stephen Hawking, the Cambridge University scholar and author of A Brief History of Time, has been called the greatest mind in physics since Albert Einstein. His Web Site (maintained by Graduate Assistant Chris Burgoyne) gives a description of his life, achievements, and his struggle with the physically debilitating disease ALS, or Lou Gehrig's Disease. The sites lecture links page gives descriptions of and downloadable Adobe Acrobat (.pdf) files of past lectures and colloquiums, while the news link page provides information on current events, such as the Professors recent sixtieth birthday. The site is easy to navigate and offers physics novices and experts interesting reading regarding the works and life a person whose name will certainly be remembered along side Einstein and Galileo.
