The scientific Discloser appeared in 2012 in sitcom. He interpreted himself and result was an audience success with 13 million of spectators following episode in which actor Jim Parsons, who plays Sheldon Cooper and who is also physical, is greeted in office of brilliant British scientist. There he faints after being corrected by Hawking, because he made a mamatical error that does not know correct. In fact, and physicist is only person that Sheldon can not ridicule because this exceeds it in all scientific aspects
In addition, references to Hawking are common in series throughout its 11 seasons, as well as appearance of his voice: some of protagonists talk to him on phone. For example, Sheldon is jealous of his partner Howard, played by Simon Helberg, when he manages to work at NASA for British physicist.
Hawking will go down in history for his work on black holes and relativity, as well as for popular books of which he was author, including popular Brief History of Time, published in 1988 and has sold more than ten million copies. Thanks to his sense of humour, he also became a recurring face of television series. In 1993 he appeared to interpret himself in Star Trek: The next generation and eventually ended up as a recurring character both of The Simpsons, almost always giving replica to Lisa, as of Futurama, where his head was kept in a jar. These series helped him to become part of popular culture as well as to approach an audience that might not be so interested in science.
Hawking's story is interesting enough for itself. After a 22-year-old multiple lateral sclerosis was diagnosed, doctors gave her only two years of life. But he lived 54 more years. The disease left him in a wheelchair and unable to speak without help of a voice synsizer. Reduced control of your body to a finger flexion and eye movement. His overwhelming intellect, his intuition, his strength and his sense of humour, combined with a destructive disease, turned Hawking into a symbol of infinite possibilities of human mind, and of his insatiable curiosity.
