Forums - General Discussion - Stephen Hawking has Died at 76

Stephen Hawking, famed British Theoretical Physicist, has died at age 76 -family members confirm. He died in his home in Cambridge. 

From article:

His children, Lucy, Robert and Tim, said: "We are deeply saddened that our beloved father passed away today.

"He was a great scientist and an extraordinary man whose work and legacy will live on for many years.” They praised his "courage and persistence" and said 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 forever," they said.”

Background: 

Stephen Hawking was a world renowned theoretical physicist who is widely known for his book A Brief History Of Time. I’d write more but I’m tired. And damnit, why’d he have to die?! Amazing person

A notable trait of this famed Professor was his ALS. To help donate against ALS, I’ll leave a link here: http://www.alsa.org/donate/

Literally at the same time as me. Xd



Made a bet with LipeJJ and HylianYoshi that the XB1 will reach 30 million before Wii U reaches 15 million. Loser has to get avatar picked by winner for 6 months (or if I lose, either 6 months avatar control for both Lipe and Hylian, or my patrick avatar comes back forever).

I’m sad that he died now >~> I was worried this day might come sooner rather than later because of his condition

Well he lived a long life given his condition, but it's a damn shame. Great loss for the scientific community.

Yeah he lived a lot longer than anyone expected him to. Still a shame.

Yours was a margin faster, but Star's OP is a bit more detailed, so I'm leaving this one open. Just an FYI if you're scratching your head.

Anyways sad news...he was an amazing guy that lived a long life. He was a real fighter for sure. Rest in Peace Professor Hawk.

I’m glad he was given the time he had to help enrich science and the world at large.
