About the video

Famous physicist Stephen Hawking died on March 14 at the age of 76 at his home in Cambridge. Hawking was one of the longest survivors of Lou Gehrig’s disease who confined him to a wheelchair at the age of 21. But that didn’t stop him as he continued to make huge contributions to science like the discovery that black holes emit heat and radiation that would be called Hawking radiation. His 1988 book “A Brief History of Time” entered the Guinness World Record for spending 237 weeks on the Sunday Times bestseller list.

<p data-recalc-dims=Hours after hundreds of supporters of President Donald Trump stormed the U.S. Capitol in a harrowing assault on U.S. democracy, a shaken Congress on Thursday officially certified Democrat Joe Biden’s electoral victory. Immediately afterwards, the White House released a statement from Trump in which he pledged an “orderly transition” when Biden is sworn in on January 20, though he repeated his false claim that he won the November election. On Wednesday, the Republican president apparently encouraged his supporters to invade the Capitol. Congress resumed work to certify victory for Biden Electoral College late in the evening after the chaotic scenes on Capitol Hill. After a debate that continued until the early hours of Thursday, the Senate and House of Representatives rejected two objections to the count and certified the final vote of the Electoral College, with Biden receiving 306 votes and Trump 232 votes. Vice President Mike Pence, declaring the final vote total, said this “will be taken as a sufficient statement from those elected President and Vice President of the United States.”
