How did Stephen Hawking move us closer to a theory of everything? In which ways did his life's work have such a profound affect on Modern Science? What made his findings so ground-breaking? Join award-winning author & science journalist Dr Stuart Clark for an extraordinary look into the life & work of the late great Professor himself.

Stephen Hawking is one of the most recognisable scientists of all time, one of the greatest cosmologists of the modern age, not to mention a cultural icon for disabled people. His passing left a legacy that will inspire generations to come.

His work took us closer to understanding the formation of the universe than anyone’s since Einstein. He also showed that black holes are not the cosmic destroyers everyone imagined but can bizarrely ‘evaporate’ to nothing over the course of billions of years. And in the equation he developed to describe these ideas, he found the firsts hints of a deeper theory governing the universe – the so-called theory of everything.

This talk will introduce Hawking’s ideas, set them in their astronomical context and describe the agenda his legacy sets for modern science. It will discuss the way he balanced fame and science, and will show that his greatest genius was the simplicity of his conclusion that the universe is an elegant, understandable place.

Venue: Cafe 1001, Brick Lane
Doors: 7pm / Talk starts: 7.30pm.
