Stephen Hawking's life is set to be celebrated with a 50p coin

Stephen Hawking's nurse struck off over care failings

Hawking, who died on March 14 past year, had once said that he thought his discovery that black holes were not entirely black would be his "greatest achievement".

The physicist died previous year at the age of 76, having become one of the most renowned leaders in his field.

"As the public rightly expects, in serious cases such as this - where a nurse has failed in their duty of care and has not been able to (provide) evidence to the panel that they have learned from their mistakes and be fit to practise - we will take action", said the NMC's Matthew McClelland.

Hawking's children Lucy and Tome Hawking visited the Royal Mint to see the coin.

Despite his illness, Hawking became one of the world's best-known and most inspiring scientists, known for his brilliance and his wit.

Hawking dedicated much of his professional life as a theoretical physicist and cosmologist to improve our understanding of the nature of black holes.

One of the most brilliant minds late Stephen Hawking is being celebrated now in a new commemorative fifty pence coin.

"Stephen Hawking made hard subjects accessible, engaging and relatable and this is what I wanted to portray in my design", Ellis said.

Stephen Hawking has been featured on a new 50p coin.

Theoretical physicist, cosmologist and author, Stephen Hawking, who passed away aged 76 a year ago, would be "pleased to be alongside Sir Isaac Newton and Charles Darwin as scientists who have made it on to money", according to his daughter. "His popularisation of science and breakthrough work on black holes stand as great achievements and significant contributions to humanity", said Nicola Howell, director of consumer at the Royal Mint.

Hawking's discovery led scientists to the unavoidable conclusion that information is lost as a black hole forms and subsequently evaporates.
