This Is The Reason Why Stephen Hawking Never Won A Nobel Prize

Updated on 20 March, 2018 at 1:19 pm By

After the sad news of Professor Stephen Hawking‘s demise made the headlines, Jonathan Ross said in his tribute that “the world just dropped a lot of IQ points”. The renowned theoretical physicist, cosmologist and author passed away on 14 March 2018, aged 76, leaving an impressive legacy behind. On several occasions, Stephen Hawking weighed in warnings about how the world could end.

Among his many scientific discoveries, lies his famous controversial theory of Black Holes. Professor Hawking said that Black Holes should emit radiation, and earned several accolades for his theory. He was also awarded many other titles, prizes and awards during his lifetime.

In spite of making many break-through discoveries, that changed the world of physics, Professor Hawking was never awarded A Nobel Prize.

 

 



According to a report by Birmingham Mail, the black hole theory, which was dubbed as “Hawking Radiation” was based on mathematical concepts arising from quantum mechanics. The theory suggested that the black holes will eventually “evaporate” and vanish due to emitting radiation.

This theory of Hawking was widely accepted by the science community, but physicists and astronomers could never prove the existence of Hawking Radiation. This is the reason why a Nobel Prize was never awarded to him.

During one of his lectures, Professor Hawking jokingly said that his lack of a Nobel Prize was “a pity”. He also said:

“A mountain-sized black hole would give off X-rays and gamma rays, at a rate of about 10 million megawatts, enough to power the world’s electricity supply. It wouldn’t be easy, however, to harness a mini black hole – about the only way to keep hold of it would be to have it in orbit around the Earth.”
