Stephen Hawking was born precisely on the 300th anniversary of the death of Galileo Galilei. Moreover, he and Einstein both died at the age of 76, while Hawking died on the date of the birth of Einstein, March 14, which is the Day of Pi.
As the world copes with the death of Stephen Hawking, one of the greatest minds in all of history, there are others who are concerned with a few eventualities regarding his birthday and his date of passing away.
On March 14th, 2018, the ‘great mind’ passed away. But for many people, the connection between these three geniuses is inevitable.
Hawking was a world-renowned scientist whose bestseller book A Brief History of Time broke world records.
Mr. Hawking laid the base of what became famous as the second law of black hole dynamics. He further takes the credit for spreading the singularity theorem theories in his doctoral thesis.
Dr. Stephen also revealed a proof that the universe follows the general theory of relativity and applies any of the models of physical cosmology made by Alexander Friedmann.
However, Professor Hawking takes the credit for many important things. Among them, the most famous are:
- Hawking radiation;
- Bekenstein–Hawking formula;
- Gibbons–Hawking ansatz;
- Hawking energy;
- Gibbons–Hawking space;
- Gibbons–Hawking–York boundary term;
- Thorne–Hawking–Preskill bet.
- Gibbons–Hawking effect;
It was recently when this scientist said humans have about 100 years remaining on Earth. He also ‘predicted’ that Earth will become a fireball in the next 600 years.
Regarding alien life, he said we should ignore the extraterrestrial signs if they ever happen to appear.
The British genius was born on January 8, 1942, in Oxford, on the 300th anniversary of the death of another genius at the field of mathematics and physics and founder of modern astronomy, Galileo Galilei.
In addition, he also blended Einstein’s theory of relativity with the quantum theory to show how space and time could have emerged with the Big Bang, eventually finishing inside black holes.
But not only these two scientists were geniuses connected in the domain of physics. They also share the same age of passing away, they both were 76 years old.
Similarly, by coincidence or not, the death of Hawking matches the date of the birth of Einstein, March 14.
If this is not enough for you, we might even mention March 14 symbolizes the Pi Day. Basically, it’s the celebration day of the mathematical constant π.
In fact, these three prominent scientists, by coincidence or not, are definitely connected and not only scientific but cosmically too.
