Stephen William Hawking, the British physicist has died at the age of 76. He passed away at his home in Cambridge, England on Wednesday (14th/03/2018).
Who’s Stephen Hawking?
Stephen William Hawking was born on 8th January 1942 in England. He was an English Theoretical physicist, cosmologist, author and director of research at the centre for theoretical Cosmology within the university of Cambridge.
The death of Hawking was confirmed by his Children Lucy, Robert and Tim.
They posted: “We are deeply saddened that our beloved father has passed away. He was a great scientist and an extraordinary man whose work and legacy will live on for many years. His courage and persistence with his brilliance and humor inspired people across the world. He once said, ‘It would not be much of a universe if it wasn’t a home to the people you love.’ We will miss him forever.”
Scientifically, Dr. Hawking will be best remembered for a discovery so strange that it might be expressed in the form of a Zen koan: When is a black hole not black? When it explodes.
Hawking suffered from amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease, and was confined to an electric wheelchair for much of his adult life. Diagnosed at age 21, he was one of the world’s longest survivors of ALS.
