Message 1924419 - Posted: 14 Mar 2018, 4:03:19 UTC

Physicist Stephen Hawking has died at the age of 76, his family has said.

The Briton was known for his groundbreaking work with black holes and relativity, and was the author of several popular science books including A Brief History of Time.

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."

That was what I originally meant to say as well, but rather that we could be left comparing with ourselves for much the same.

Rest in peace, dear Stephen.
You were a most remarkable man.
Now your mind no longer has to bear the burden of your body.
And this world is a lesser place from your passing.
Stephen Hawking's death converges with Pi Day, Einstein's birthday.

The Nobel Committee always ignored him, who had deserved the Prize. Now he can no longer get it

The Nobel Committee has not always ignored him.
It's Alfred Nobel's will who has ingnored him.
Quoting Stephen Hawking since Alfred Nobel's will was not perfect.
“One of the basic rules of the universe is that nothing is perfect. Perfection simply doesn't exist.....Without imperfection, neither you nor I would exist”

Anyway Stephen Hawking will be missed by many not only scientists.
My favorite Hawking quote.
"Life would be tragic if it weren't funny."
