Read This Story of Stephen Hawking When You Are Depressed!

Today we are going to explore the story of Stephen Hawking who is nicknamed “Einstein” by his friends. I will assure you that this blog will change your life.

Some people were always criticizing their life. They have many problems like they feel depressed, they don’t have enough money, and there is no time to do their work productively, life is full of problems, etc…

After hearing This story you will throw out all your silly reasons to do something and will start to work for your dream.

Stephen Hawking was born on 8 January 1942 and died on 14 March 2018. In the list of great scientists like Issac Newton and Albert Einstein, now Stephen Hawking is considered one of the important scientists in history.

But there is a huge difference between those two scientists and Stephen hawking. And that is Stephen hawking is a disabled person whereas the other two scientists are normal.

It is a wonder that this man could not even do his everyday activities but he smacked down his obstacles and became one of the famous scientists in this world.

Stephen Hawking was born in the UK on 8th January 1942. He was an average student. Even though he is fond of going to class and learning, He doesn’t like the education system.

From his point of view, he says that he likes physics then what is the reason to study other subjects which is unnecessary for him.

Despite any other subjects, he scored good marks, particularly in physics. Hawking’s parents want him to become a doctor but he is not interested in becoming a doctor.

Being an introvert in his school days and getting bullied is common for him.

After that, he joined Oxford University and took part as a member of the rowing club. He started to take part in those rowing competitions held in Thames river in London.

And slowly started to gain many friends which was a dream for him during his school days. At his college time, he fell in love with a girl.

During this time, when hawking is 20 years old, felt that everything is going quite good, Suddenly a disease was diagnosed in hawking which is called ALS (Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis)

Several days before diagnosing this disease. While hawking was walking, He slipped many times without any reason, and sometimes while he was writing his hands became paralyzed.

But he couldn’t acknowledge that something is happening in his body. Due to the pressure of his lover, he went to the hospital and was diagnosed with this disease called ALS.

Generally, this disease is common among the age group of 50 and after being diagnosed with this disease, they will be living only up to 2–3 years.

The commands given by the brain of the ALS patient will not be accepted by their muscles and body parts as a result they couldn’t move their body parts.

Finally leads to death. These ALS patients could not breathe using their lungs at the last stage.

But in the case of Stephen Hawking, He could breathe normally. And the doctors said that maximum he could live for 4–5 years and he could speak in a babbling tone.

After being hospitalized, Hawking was thinking about his disease and he was very depressed.

In that hospital, a cancer patient was hospitalized and the doctors also regularly check whether he was alive or dead.

Because the life of that cancer patient is at a higher risk of dying at any time. But hawking thought that he has 5 years to live.

And decided to achieve his goals during this period of time and started to embark on normal life.

And his lover married him. His life started to move. During this period, He started to learn about the two physics concepts: Quantum and the working of this universe. He started to deeply indulge in these two departments.

And he became a theoretical physicist, This disease stopped him from becoming a practical scientist.

The most intelligent gadget in this world is our brain. And hawking used his brain to analyze the concepts of quantum without writing or experimenting physically.

We couldn’t imagine doing such things as hawking. He created everything, from the entire universe to the atom in his brain.

He gave some of the theories in science. And the important theories dealt with the black hole, time, etc…

These theories are hard to understand by the normal human being. But he did. The only thing he had in his mind is “HOPE”.

At this period of time. Only his muscles under his eyes and fingers could move and he could babble.

Some of the scientists in America gifted a special chair for him. This allowed hawkings to select the letters which were displayed on the screen of his chair.

By this, he could make a sentence, which could be delivered in the form of audio output.

One day he had gone to visit the CERN laboratory in Switzerland. He was affected by pneumonia due to the climatic changes and because of other viral infections. And this made him speechless and his fingers were also paralyzed.

Analyzing his conditions, the scientists gave him a Glass which is specially designed for him. By the movement of muscles under his eyes, the glass allows him to express his views.

The alphabets will be displayed on the monitor and by moving his muscles under his eyes he could select the letters and combine them as sentences. Whatever may be his obstacles, He never gave up.

He wrote many books during his lifetime.”A brief history of time” is considered one of the most sold books scientific books in the top 10 list around the world which he had written by just moving his eye muscles. (My mind “What a Man!”)

As per his medical condition stated by the doctors i.e, he could live about 4–5 years, but he disproved the doctor’s prediction and had lived up to 74 years!.

(That doctor’s mind “It’s a medical miracle”). Jokes apart, what we want to know from his inspiring story is whatever you consider a problem, will be vanished if you have the thing called HOPE in your mind.


  1. Stephen Hawking had predicted that aliens are there in multiple universes. , The aliens could be advanced in technology than us and have well-built civilization on any of the planets in this vast space. And he said that Aliens and humans will be meeting in 200 years.
  2. According to his prediction, If humanity needs to survive, we have to move on to another planet to sustain. Because we are degrading this earth by pollution, war, etc…
  3. Stephen hawking strongly gives a warning that when we try to contact aliens, it will become a danger to humanity as the extraterrestrial species could dominate or kill humanity.
  4. He forecasts that we will edit the gene of humans and will introduce the advance “SuperHumans”.Hence we self-design our genes to produce a high-level breed of Human beings.
  5. Stephen Hawking f eared that Artificial intelligence will outperform humans in the future. So that AI has to be in control.
  6. He has more concern about Climate. He said that due to global warming, our earth’s temperature rises to 250 degrees Celcius, and could lead to the raining of Sulphuric Acid(Oil of Vitriol), criticizing Trump’s decision on pulling out of the Paris Agreement.


“I have noticed even people who claim everything is predestined, and that we can do nothing to change it, look before they cross the road.”

“God is the name people give to the reason we are here.”

“However difficult life may seem, there is always something you can do and succeed at”

“God may exist, but science can explain the universe without the need for a creator.”

“People who boast about their IQ are losers.”

“Work gives you meaning and purpose, and life is empty without it.”

“We are just an advanced breed of monkeys on a minor planet of a very average star. But we can understand the universe. That makes us something very special.”
