Stephen Hawking Has Died Aged 76

Professor Stephen Hawking has passed away at the age of 76

Hawking became a hero to math and science geeks and a pop-culture figure, guest-starring as himself on "Star Trek: The Next Generation" and "The Simpsons".

Prof Hawking, one of the world's finest scientific minds, was diagnosed with a rare form of motor neurone disease in 1964 at the age of 22 and was given just a few years to live. As a result he was confined to a wheelchair and had to use a voice synthesizer to communicate. "The answer is, not a lot".

My advice to other disabled people would be, concentrate on things your disability doesn't prevent you doing well, and don't regret the things it interferes with.

Being on the team made Stephen popular since rowing was an important sporting activity at Oxford.

I met Stephen Hawking cursorily for the first time when I was at Cambridge University.

"My goal is simple". "It is complete understanding of the universe, why it is as it is and why it exists at all".

As George sees it, he, Russell Westbrook , and the squad have "unfinished business". He flew to Los Angeles on Saturday, creating a frenzy without saying a word.

Celebrated theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking, known for his ideas about black holes and quantum gravity, died on Wednesday.

He is also well-known for his book, A Brief History of Time: From the Big Bang to Black Holes, first published in 1988.

A previous holder of the prestigious post was the 17th-century British scientist Isaac Newton.

Characteristically, he did not see the trip as a mere birthday present.

"The NHS must be preserved from commercial interests and protected from those who want to privatise it", he previously said.

"I believe everyone can and should have a broad picture of how the universe operates and our place in it". In more recent years, Hawking had been a proponent of expansive space travel and had been very open with his thoughts on artificial intelligence. Another said his contributions shook her universe.

At the time , Musk stated in a tweet, "My job as CEO is to focus on what's most critical, which is now Model 3 production". Doug Field was relieved by Elon Musk as head of Model 3 production in April and is now taking a break from the company.

Perhaps his most widely-known work, it provided an overview of space and time and catapulted him to worldwide fame.

His most famous book "A Brief History of Time", was created to be read by ordinary people and not just scientists.

It was followed in 2001 by "The Universe in a Nutshell". "#StephenHawking is free from the physical constraints of this earthly condition we all exist in and he is soaring above us now marveling at it all." - actress Mayim Bialik, who appeared with Hawking on the USA television show "The Big Bang Theory", on Twitter. During a 2016 interview with ITV's Good Morning Britain, he was quite blunt when questioned about Donald Trump's growing appeal ahead of the U.S, presidential election. The couple divorced in 1991.

Hawking's life was depicted in the 2014 movie "The Theory of Everything".

Chief Executive and Director of the London-based Francis Crick Institute, Paul Nurse, said that "Stephen Hawking was a great physicist, a great public communicator, and a great icon for science and rationalism throughout the world".
