Describe an intelligent person you know
You should say:
Who this person was
How old this person is
What he does
and explain why you think he or she was intelligent
The person I am going to tell you is Stephen Hawking, a world-renowned scientist. He was an English theoretical physicist, cosmologist, and author. He was also the director of a research department and the professor of Mathematics at the University of Cambridge.
When he was 21st, he was diagnosed with motor neuron disease, which affects and causes the deaths of neurons that control the brain and the spinal cord. At first, this article is from Laokaoya website, the doctor predicted that he could only live for another two years. But he kept fighting and did not die until 2018 when he was 76 years old.
Stephen Hawking had done profound work in physics, especially in the theories about the university and the black hole. Due to my limitation of knowledge, I could not understand his various researches and conclusions, but from the reports on the newspapers and comments of other scientists, I know he made a great contribution to the development of cutting-edge physical theories.
However, what makes me think he was intelligent is not his research, but his several works of popular science. He magically turns those boring, complex figures and equations into something the general public can understand and arouses their interest into this subject, which is amazing.
