В 1942 г. родился английский физик и астроном Стивен Уильям Хокинг

The greatest expert on black holes is known not only for his achievements in physics, but also for great courage: he did not let the disease turn his life into a black hole. The scientist, who has been paralyzed since his youth, talked and delivered lectures with the help of a computer. The greatest theoretical physicist of our time even made a suborbital flight, in which he experienced a state of weightlessness.
