Stephen is a British theoretical physicist, whose world-renowned scientific career spans over 40 years. His books and public appearances have made him an academic celebrity and he is an Honorary Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts.

Hawking’s key scientific works to date have included providing, with Roger Penrose, theorems regarding singularities in the framework of general relativity, and the theoretical prediction that black holes should emit radiation, which is today known as Hawking radiation (or sometimes as Bekenstein-Hawking radiation).
Wow, I did not realize that. I know that as you compare IQ's over about 125 or so there is a remarkable difference in as little as a five point spread, but I thought Hawking's score would be higher. Just goes to show you that IQ score is not the "be and end all" of intelligence rating.
