I think he was a true example of where there is life, there is hope.  RIP, Prof Hawking.

A loss to the entire world as he wasn't just brilliant but inspirational as well.  These people come along so rarely that we are all poorer for their passing, RIP.

A legend has passed.

Not just an icon for his scientific genius, but an inspiration for how he battled a terribly debilitating disease, and someone who'll be fondly remembered for his contributions to pop culture.

A great man.

RIP.

Very sad news, but he lived so much longer than is usual with his disease there is a blessing in there.

Amazing how over half a century ago he was given only a couple of years to live. If my maths is right, Hawking lived for three days longer than Einstein. I am sure they are now in a parallel universe discussing that very fact!

At university, when his classmates could only solve 3 or 4 of the extra problems in a physics textbook, Hawking, in only a few hours solved all of them. A classmate said, "We always though Steven was from around the block, now we realized he was from another planet!"

Sorry to hear the news but glad to be alive to personally witness this great man's achievements. 

The world has lost a collosal mind and a wonderful character. 

So pleased to see all the comments as positive.

Every once in a while, if the time is right, we have a light that shines bright enough for all of us people living in perpetual darkness to get a glimpse of the wonders of the universe, even for just a moment. Thanks Mr. Hawking and RIP.

Hawking was born on the 300th anniversary of Galileo's death and died on Einstein's birthday.

As a professor at Cambridge he held the Lucasian Chair of Mathematics... a position once held by Newton.

On the shoulders of giants indeed.

Good grief: whilst working out Einstein's and Hawking's ages when they died, I wrote down their birthdays and "death days" but didn't see the coincidence!
