Hawking House is named after Stephen Hawking.
Stephen Hawking, (born 8 January 1942-died 14 March 2018), was an English theoretical physicist, cosmologist, and author who was director of research at the Centre for Theoretical Cosmology at the University of Cambridge at the time of his death.
His biggest achievements include developing his theories of Singularity and Hawking Radiation; as well as spreading Science to the masses.
Hawking is also known for his Environmental advocacy; warning heads of state about the consequences of unchecked emissions over a decade ago, leading to numerous positive steps taken since.
Hawking was infamously diagnosed with a rare condition and as a result he helped developed technology to generate speech and track movement. He was also an advocate of the National Health Service and stem-cell research.
Hawking House is led by Miss O Tolley.
