The radio has just announced that Steven hawking has passed.
what a giant of a human being.
A great great man.
Stephen Hawking, modern cosmology's brightest star, dies aged 76
Oh dear. I somehow thought of him as a permanent fixture, if you see what I mean.
RIP on Pi Day.
Very sad day, a great visionary has stepped off planet Earth.
He, his family and carers alongside the NHS have done well to keep him around to continue his work.
Well done Stephen, you were expected to have been gone at 25 years old.
Pop into the next dimension and say hi to Carl Sagan.
Sad loss, on the plus side, he did have a good innings under the circumstances.
RIP - lived his life in full despite the profound difficulties of MND. We don't see many like him. A loss to British science.
Although there isn't an afterlife, he'll no doubt be arguing with Newton as we speak.
A loss to world science, a voice that was appreciated as the world careers crazily into pseudo-science and fundamentalists in power.
Feels like the end of an era.
Apart from being a scientific genius, don't forget, in his last few months he was taking on the government and hunt particularly, over the health and social care reforms and benefit reforms, saying, amongst other things, the govt. Were trying to privatise the NHS.
Very very sad to read this. He was my hero...if ever there was one.
“Remember to look up at the stars not down at your feet. Try to make sense of what you see and what makes the universe exist...."
"And however difficult life may seem, there is always something you can do, and succeed at. It matters that you just don’t give up.”
A true legend. And outlived predictions by about fifty years
What a guy. RIP Prof.
He almost ran me over in a corridor once, which is probably still my best brush with celebrity.
He ran over my foot once; it's what he used to do to get your attention. Certainly couldn't have packed much more into that life.
Just read this , sad news , RIP
Sad news. RIP to a true genius of our time.
Oh no. A friend of mine worked with him, said he was a lovely fella.
This is terrible news, I just assumed he would last forever.
He reportedly turned down a knighthood. Good man.
Immense mind and must have really struggled physically - an extrodinary life - RIP
Very different people, but I feel the same way about him that I did about Carl Sagan, science with particular heart and humanity. I'm sure there are plenty of them out there, but they stood out. Feels like quite a gap has been left.
From his children
“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 for ever.”
Bloody hell. That's your epitaph, right there Stephen
The world is poorer for his passing.
But far richer for his having been.
Despite the fact that he could be a difficult cunt, or more likely because of it
