Stephen Hawking Is Very Ill

Professor, Scientist, and Author Stephen Hawking Is Very Ill

One of the most prolific scientific geniuses of our time, Stephen Hawking, has been hospitalized, according to Cambridge University where he teaches. The famous author of A Brief History of Time has been ill for the past couple of weeks and although suffering from the fatal Lou Gehrig's Disease (also known as Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis) which left him paralyzed, he has been living with the condition for more than forty years.

The sixty-seven-year old has three children and currently resides in England.
