United Kingdom issues 'black hole' coin in honour of Stephen Hawking

Britain's Nursing and Midwifery Council made the ruling where Patricia Dowdy, 61, faces multiple charges over financial misconduct, not providing appropriate care and not having the correct qualifications.

Meanwhile, the nurse who cared for late Stephen Hawking was on Tuesday banned for failing "to provide the standards of good, professional care that we expect and Professor Hawking deserved".

Hawking ended up in a wheelchair, and he was nearly completely paralyzed and not able to speak after he got diagnosed with motor neuron disease at the age of 21.

"We have remained in close contact with the Hawking family throughout this case and I am grateful to them - as they approach the anniversary of Professor Hawking's death - and others for sharing their concerns with us".

Stephen Hawking is shaved by one of his nurses at Cambridge University, Cambridge, England, 1987.

At first, Hawking was given only a few years, but its condition, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS for short) stole his mobility gradually.

It's been about a year since the world lost one of its brightest minds.

His focus was on relativity, space and time, and the quantum theory.

(Web Desk) - The Royal Mint has honoured the legacy of renowned and influential physicist Stephen Hawking, who was passed away about a year ago, in the form of a new commemorative 50 pence coin.

Rather than featuring a portrait of the scientist himself, the designer went for something far more abstract, and yet something Stephen Hawking, who had a great sense of humour, would hopefully have approved of.

If you'd like your own Hawking coin, you can get one here, Moneybags - but your riches would be better spent on one of the Professor's many books, including the legendary A Brief History of Time, most of which can be had for less than this commemorative piece of metal.

The design of the coin is inspired by Prof Hawking's pioneering work on black holes and his ability to make science accessible and engaging.
