  The Theory of Everything

  If Stephen Hawking lives until the year 2017, he will have lived more than50 years longer than his doctors expected. When he was a college student,doctors discovered that he had a rare disease. This disease causes a gradual disintegration(分解)of the nerve cells in the brain cells that regulatevoluntary muscle activity. Death almost always occurs within two or threeyears.

  Today Stephen Hawking cannot walk or speak. He cannot move his arms or hishead. He cannot taste or smell anything. And yet this man is Professor ofMathematics at Cambridge University, a position held by the famous scientistIsaac Newton in 1669.

  Hawking is often described as the greatest scientist since Albert Einstein,but to the world outside science, he is also known as the man who madescientific theory understandable. His book, A Brief History of Time, has soldover eight million copies.

  He says that since he does not have to think about his body or do any ofthe things other men have to worry about, such as washing the car or working inthe yard, he can dedicate all of his time to thinking. This puts him in theperfect position to find the answer to the question that he has dedicated hislife to. His question is: Is there a complete theory of the universe andeverything in it?

  Despite his tremendous physical disabilities, he has already made some veryimportant discoveries about the origin of the universe, how the universe holdstogether, and how it will probably end. He has also been able to explain thesecrets of “black holes” in space. Now he is looking for a set ofrules that everything in our universe must obey. He calls it the Theory ofEverything. He thinks that someone will have found the answer within the next20 years.

  If Stephen Hawking is able to find his Theory of Everything, he will havegiven the world the opportunity to understand things that will change the wholenature of science and probably also the way we live.
