About Stephen Hawking
Stephen Hawking is 71 and his birthday is January 8, 1942. He was diagnosed with Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis also known as ALS when he was 21. A lot of people thought he made machines for people with disease but he actually discovered things.
By the time he was 32 he could not feed or dress himself on his own. Thankfully there is no one in his family but him with ALS so they can help him. The device that he uses is called The Computer.
