Stephen Hawking CH CBE FRS FRSA (1942 – 2018) was an English theoretical physicist, cosmologist, and author. He was the Lucasian Professor of Mathematics at the University of Cambridge between 1979 and 2009. He was especially well known for his works on cosmology and black holes.

Sir Roger Penrose OM FRS HonFInstP (born 8 August 1931) is a British mathematician, mathematical physicist, philosopher of science and Nobel Laureate in Physics. He shared the

Two extraordinary physicists explore with remarkable clarity and useful illustrations many unanswered questions about the Universe. Penrose won the Wolfe Prize in Physics which he shared with Stephen Hawking for the Penrose–Hawking singularity theorems, and the 2020 Nobel Prize in Physics "for the discovery that black hole formation is a robust prediction of the general theory of relativity.
