This is my father, Stephen Hawking.
and it's a very nice photograph of him
he's a very brilliant man
he's a theoretical phisicist
and that means that he looks for ways
to understand the universe around us
using the laws of physics.
And so he's a very brilliant man and he's the Lucasian professor of Mathematics at Cambridge University
so that's a very long way to say it's the same job of the great scientist Isaac Newton once held
And he's won many awards and been given many honorary degrees
And so you would think that this would have been obvious
right from the beginning
Well this is the part of the talk where we do some time travel
We're going to go back and take a look
So here he is
This is my father as a small boy with his two sisters
And when my father was a young boy
and he was at school his teachers didn't think that much of him
This is a line from one of his school reports
This boy will never amount to anything
However his classmates must have noticed something about him
Because they nicknamed him Einstein
and he did go on to become a scholar
And this just shows that kids are so much cleverer than adults
Because he became a scholar and he went to Oxford University
and he left with a first in honours in Physics
and he came to Cambridge to begin his research
Now around this time he also found out that he was suffering from a disease
And it's a disease called ALS
and what it does is it slowly takes
away your ability to move your muscles
and in later years it's also
taken away his natural speaking voice.
And so at the end of the talk when you here him talking to you
it will sound like a computer is speaking
to you but it isn't it's a real man
who's using a computer to give himself back the voice that his disease has taken away from him
but fortunately some good things also happened to my father in this time
he met my mother and he got engaged and he got married
and he started work on his thesis
and his thesis was called 'Properties of Expanding Universes'
and as part of his thesis he managed to prove
that the Universe must have had a definite beginning
so that's not bad for a bit of post-graduate work actually
and now a few years on and here we are
this is 1970 in Cambridge
and that baby is me
and my parent's called me
Lucy because the name 'Lucy' comes from the Latin
word for light
and light is one of the major studies of astrophysicists
like my father and so
it's a very good name
for the daughter of a physcist
and the reason I'm showing you this photo from 1970
1970 was an important year for my father
he had a Eureka moment
and he worked out a very elegant mathematical proof
of what happens when two black holes collide
he worked out that when two black holes collide they join to form a larger black hole
but that they can't split
to form two black holes
so as you can tell I was a very inspirational
thought-provoking baby there
* laugh *
And here we are this is a few years later
and we have moved to CalTech
we're now living in California in Pasadena
and Caltech is a great centre for scientists
on the West Coast of America. And this is
1974 which was another very important year for my father
because he's working on his realisations
about what happens when a star implodes to form a
black hole.
So we saw the supernova the great explosion
at the end of a star's life a few
minutes ago and what happens if it
was a big enough star it throws the outer layers off
and the inner core can collapse on itself
to form a black hole
And that's what my father's working on
at this point
now after this we go back to England and my father
takes up his professorship at Cambridge
and many many many things happen over
the intervening years I grew up
become a teenager
my school reports were really not so great either
* laugh *
And my father also has a very
very busy time he writes his
best-selling work a Brief History of Time
now this is a book that has sold all over the world
and yet some people claim that not so many people
have actually managed to finish it.
So that's one of the reasons why we set to work on our
children's books we set to work to try and add some extra
explanation
Now at that time my father also had some some
fun things going on in his life. He went on the Simpsons
* laugh *
He really loved being on the Simpsons
the way they gave him helicopter blades for his wheelchair
but he did say that he's really glad that in real-life
he's not bright yellow
*laugh*
He also did this he was on Star Trek
Paramount studios one day because he was working at Caltech
and they asked him if he'd like a part
and here he is on the enterprise with the two greatest scientist of all time.
in my mind Isaac Newton and Albert Einstein
and a few more adventures here he is floating in
zero gravity. And this is a really lovely picture
because if you look at the size of his smile
and you think this is a man who's
mind has been free to travel across
the whole universe but his body has been and here he is he's free and he's floating.
confined to a wheelchair for decades by this point
and here he is he's free and he's floating.
