Unhappy R.I.P. Stephen Hawking

The physicist of our time....

Stephen Hawking dies aged 76


World renowned physicist Stephen Hawking has died at the age of 76.

He died peacefully at his home in Cambridge in the early hours of Wednesday, his family said.

The Briton was known for his work with black holes and relativity, and wrote several popular science books including A Brief History of Time.

At the age of 22 Prof Hawking was given only a few years to live after being diagnosed with a rare form of motor neurone disease.

In a statement his children, Lucy, Robert and Tim, said: "We are deeply saddened that our beloved father passed away today.

"He was a great scientist and an extraordinary man whose work and legacy will live on for many years."

They praised his "courage and persistence" and said his "brilliance and humour" inspired people across the world.

"He once said, 'It would not be much of a universe if it wasn't home to the people you love.' We will miss him forever."

(BBC)

He appeared on The Simpsons, the Big Bang Theory, and always had a sense of humour one might not expect in a man with such a challenging affliction.

Yep and a man who lived on borrowed time for over fifty years. That achievement alone deserves a big round of applause.

I respected him as a theoretical physicist.

I could have done without his latter life politics.
