Let's get a National Holiday for Stephen Hawking!!

Stephen William Hawking was a world-renowned theoretical physicist, known for his contributions to the fields of cosmology, general relativity and quantum gravity, especially in the context of black holes. In the 1960s and 1970s, he worked on ground-breaking theorems regarding singularities within the framework of general relativity, and made the theoretical prediction that black holes should emit radiation (known today as Hawking radiation). He has published several works of popular science in which he discusses his own theories and cosmology in general, including the runaway bestseller “A Brief History of Time”, and has come to be thought of as one of the greatest minds in physics since Albert Einstein. His works made him the most popular scientist of his day and one of the greatest in history and he should be honored with a national holiday on his birthday. Let's make Stephen Hawking Day a reality!
