Any space, physics or all-around science geek may agree that Stephen Hawking is immortal, but now his work is remembered on a coin that must last until all the black holes in the universe evaporate. Mint released the most suitable coin to keep the memory of the late physicist alive forever, or at least until Earth was around. It's kind of like an epitaph that you can fit in your pocket. His name and the equation for the entropy of a black hole (more than that in a second) appear right above the event's horizon of an imaginary portrayal of a black hole
"I wanted to fit into a big black hole in small coin and wants [Hawking] is still in the mind, "designer Edwina Ellis told the BBC about 50p (about 72 cents) coins. He wants it to describe how he ""
About black holes that flare-this is where the entropy. The entropy describes how a system loses energy at a certain temperature. Because nothing, even light, could escape the super gravitational force of a black hole, Hawking began to wonder what was done in entropy. This is how the concept of Hawking radiation appears. The black holes, which he believes, should gradually disappear and thus keep things from their surfaces.
The coin equation implies general relativity (gravity laws) and quantum mechanics (laws of the smallest particles) to explain how the black holes will be lost to the ether more than billions and billions year.
"It's a great privilege to feature a coin," says Lucy, Hawking's daughter, "and I hope my dad will be pleased with Sir Isaac Newton and Charles Darwin as scientists to make money. "
If you do not live in the UK, this does not mean that they are light years old. Get one today from the Royal Mint website and put the black hole in your pocket.
