How Much is Stephen Hawking Worth?

A unique personality Stephen Hawking owns $20 million net worth. He earned his wealth through his work of Director of Research Centre at Cambridge University. In addition he authored and co-authored more than 15 books, which were sold all over the world. Some of them served as the base for documentary films. His most famous literary works are “A Brief History of Time”, “The Grand Design” and others.

Stephen Hawking gained international popularity and increased his earnings in 1974, when he made a scientific discovery. Then Stephen discovered so called Hawking Radiation. To explain in simple words, the cosmologist proved that not everything escaped in black holes (as it was supposed earlier). Some part of radiation can “run away” from the black hole.

This discovery made Stephen Hawking popular all over the world and brought him a string of awards. The scientist gained international admiration not just for his research work but also for the fact, that he had made it, being absolutely disabled.
