Hawking’s Death, Einstein’s Birth, and Pi Day

Hawking Death, Einstein Birth, and Pi Day

Hawking's date of his passing, which is in the early hours of March 14, 2018, happened to coincide with the birthday of yet another genius: Albert Einstein. What makes it much more coincidental is that the day is a Pi Day. Is time really that relative?


英国知名物理学家霍金周三在剑桥家中过世,享寿76岁,而3月14恰好也是物理学家爱因斯坦63周年的冥诞,更巧的是,爱因斯坦逝世时也是76岁。


两位在物理学领域贡献灼着的天才大师,生死日竟都在同一天,实在巧合。


爱因斯坦的生日是1879年3月14日,逝世时是1955年4月18日,霍金则在1942年1月8日出生,两人的生命重叠了13年,而两人的生死日恰好都在3月14日。


爱因斯坦创立了相对论,在人类科学与哲学领域奠下不朽地位,他同时也是质能等价公式的发现者,与霍金不同的是,爱因斯坦在1921年即拿下诺贝尔物理学奖,霍金却一生与诺奖无缘。


爱因斯坦一生发表了300多篇科学论文和150篇非科学作品,被誉为「现代物理学之父」及20世纪世界最重要科学家之一。起源创性的科学成就让他的名字与「天才」划上等号。


而霍金虽在年轻时期即罹病却终生仍致力于物理界,并对时间提出诸多原创性的理论,两人虽在物理学领域里交错,但都对人类贡献灼着。

English translation:

The famous British physicist Hawking died at the Cambridge home on Wednesday, and he was 76 years old. March 14 was also the commemoration of the 63rd anniversary of physicist Einstein. Even more so, Einstein was 76 when he died.

It is a coincidence that the two genius masters who have contributed to the physics field are on the same day.

Einstein’s birthday was March 14, 1879, when he died on April 18, 1955, and Hawking was born on January 8, 1942. Their lives overlapped for 13 years, and their lives and deaths happened to be exactly the same. On March 14th.

Einstein founded the theory of relativity and laid the immortal position in the field of human science and philosophy. He is also the discoverer of the mass-energy equivalence. What makes him different than Hawking is that Einstein won the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1921, while Hawking had no chance to win the Nobel Prize in his life.

Einstein published more than 300 scientific papers and 150 non-scientific works in his life, and was hailed as "the father of modern physics" and one of the most important scientists in the world in the 20th century. The scientific achievements of the original origin made his name equal to the "genius".

Although Hawking suffered from a disease since his youth, he still devoted himself to the physical world and put forward many original theories about time. Although they are intertwined in the field of physics, they all contribute to humanity.
