Unhappy Stephen Hawking Passes away

Renowned British physicist Stephen Hawking dies at 76

NEW DELHI: Renowned British physicist and cosmologist Stephen Hawking died today. He was 76.
Hawking had a rare early-onset slow-progressing form of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), also known as motor neurone disease or Lou Gehrig's disease, that gradually paralysed him over the decades.

Re: Stephen Hawking Passes away

Very sad news. Will be missed massively. His discoveries were ahead of time.
Epitome of a fighter. Being told at a young age that he won't survive more than a year , he kept on fighting the disease and contributed massively to field of science.

Re: Stephen Hawking Passes away

I only saw him (his image actually) in "The Big Bang Theory". But what I read about him, he was really admirable, a real fighter.

Really? You had never heard of his book?

I guess coming from Engineering background, he was our hero.. so it's tough for me to imagine somebody not knowing about him.

Read his book "A brief history of time" in late 90s many times over.. later bought an illustrated version in 2008 or so.. still fascinated and wanna know more about his work.. and read his other books, but life and work won't permit enough time.

Amazing what he was able to achieve despite the disability.. he prolly used it as a boon, knowing how smart he was.

Think about it.. the limitations of daily life, family and career were gone, the tiredness of the body, other issues.. all drown out in face of the enormous disability he had. It's a blessing actually, if you look at it the right way, and I'm sure he did.

Re: Stephen Hawking Passes away

RIP. Definitely lived far longer than doctors told he would. Have to read his brief history of time once.

He first appeared for me in ‘the world this week’ which was the main video gateway to outside world provided by Pappu senior’s buddy Prannoy Roy. It was a good show actually.

Hawkins was an atheist. So doubt if he looked forward for heaven.
