There aren't very many scientists who achieved rock-star status. Stephen Hawking, who has died at the age of 76, family members told British media early Wednesday, was definitely a contender.

"He was a great scientist and an extraordinary man whose work and legacy will live on for many years," the family statement said, according to The Guardian. "His courage and persistence with 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 for ever."

OMG, what a loss for the world.

Whoaaa.... 

A remarkable man and talent.

Never agreed with EVERYTHING he said, but, he was a genius for sure.

Wow. RIP...

What a loss. First MID, now Hawking. :(

Much less inspiration in the world now for me.

Gone and sadly missed by his family, friends and colleagues, but not lost to the world. Like Galileo, Newton, and Einstein, Hawking's work lives on and in some respects is the more important and is certainly the more enduring. R.I.P.

It's amazing that he lived for that long, given his diagnosis. He made a great contribution to science and mankind. He will be missed.

Goddammit!  I still only get about 60% of "A Brief History of Time"...

 

Thank you, Stephen.  Like others I didn't necessarily agree with some of your theories (probably because I didn't fully understand them), but you (and Albert before you) helped me to realise that 'earthly' logic and common sense break down quite badly when confronted with the limits of gravity and relativistic speeds - and that's pretty awe-inspiring...  The Cosmos has lost what must be one of it's absolute best thinkers.

Even though he lived a lot longer than he realistically should've, this was a massive unexpected death.

His condition, yet his ability to continue his thoughts to the end are, to me, truly remarkable in itself.

I seriously doubt I would have that fortitude.

May whatever family he has be pleased as to his progressive mark on science and society.

God bless the memories.

He was living proof that the mind is more than just an extension of a body.

I wish you a great journey beyond what you theorised Mr Hawking.. perhaps now you will find out how close your predictions were. Say a big "Hello" to MID for me.

He was born on 8th January 1942, the 300th anniversary of Galileo's death.

He died on 14th March 2018, the 139th anniversary of Einstein's birth.

Sure, I think I only agreed with about 20% of what he came out with be it his ideas or theories.

But anyone with a PHD is an asset to their country, so he is a loss.

So broken hearted he died, and his suffering through life. He was a very smart man   :unsure:
