    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.

    • Obituary: Stephen Hawking
    The illness left him in a wheelchair and largely unable to speak except through a voice synthesiser.

    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."

    Prof Hawking was the first to set out a theory of cosmology as a union of relativity and quantum mechanics.

    He also discovered that black holes leak energy and fade to nothing - a phenomenon that would later become known as Hawking radiation.

    Through his work with mathematician Sir Roger Penrose he demonstrated that Einstein's General Theory of Relativity implies space and time would have a beginning in the Big Bang and an end in black holes.

    The scientist gained popularity outside the academic world and appeared in several TV shows including The Simpsons, Red Dwarf and The Big Bang Theory.

    He was portrayed in both TV and film - recently by Oscar winner Eddie Redmayne in The Theory of Everything, which charted his rise to fame and relationship with his first wife, Jane.

    R.I.P. He was one of the people to whom I owe my ideas about life and the universe. I've read the classic A brief history of time many times, although I did not understand it completely, especially the last two chapters. It seems that his dream about the theory of everything and the final equation of the universe did not come true during his lifetime, but string theory / M-theory looks very promising. Only time will tell. We'll miss you, old friend!

  7. If one believes that energy can neither be created nor destroyed but only is transformed from one form to another, than good old Stephen's will be around for a relatively long time. RIP.

    i am not sad to see him leaving, because he has so much accomplished and his life span was so much longer than predict as he was diagnosed. And also when you look at his scientific legacy you will notice nobody will ever forget him.

    RIP Stephan! :thanks:

    For my ally is the force.
    And a powerful ally it is.
    Life creates it, makes it grow.
    Its energy surrounds us and binds us.
    Luminous beings are we,
    Not this crude matter.
    You must feel the force around you
    .”

    Death is a natural part of life.
    Rejoice for those around you who transform into the Force.
    Mourn them do not. Miss them do not.
    Attachment leads to jealousy.
    The shadow of greed that is
    .”

    Train yourself to let go... of everything you fear to lose.” (Yoda's Quotes)

    In fact, I'm glad Stephen Hawking was rested. Despite all the good humor and the great exposure that he had in mass media, only he and the closest people knew how difficult it was to face Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis over the years. Your legacy will persist through his unique deeds, an inspiration to us all! Now he's one with the force!
