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?

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.
