scientist soared

As his reputation as a scientist soared higher and higher, fate followed with less  rewarding things. Stephen Hawking gradually started losing control over the muscles  of his body as he gradually became a victim of Gehrig's disease. Since the age of  thirty, he has been confined to a wheelchair with no power to control his body except  for some limited movement of his head and hands only. He can speak only through a  computer with a voice synthesiser that converts his messages into sounds. But such a  tremendous physical handicap has not managed to dishearten or slow him down.  Stephen is still a relentless worker, using his computer to carry out research work as  well as deliver lectures. He lives with his wife and three daughters and is provided  with twenty-four hours nursing facilities by an American organisation for his physical  well-being.   5.
