It’s hard to think about Stephen Hawking without also thinking about is wheelchair and the computer which helps him speak. However, the British scientist was a normal young man when he was studying at Oxford. In 1965 Stephen married Jane Wilde. This photo was taken after Hawking was diagnosed with Lou Gehrig’s disease ( ALS ).

"One should hate very little, because it's extremely fatiguing. One should despise much, forgive often, and never forget. Pardon does not bring with it forgetfulness; at least not for me." Sarah Bernhardt

Stephen Hawking is turning 70, defying the odds of Lou Gehrig's disease. "I don't know of anyone who's survived this long," said Ammar Al-Chalabi, director of the Motor Neurone Disease Care and Research Centre at King's College London. He does not treat Hawking and described his longevity as "extraordinary."
