    A Brief History of Time is up there with Sagan's Cosmos as one of the most seminal works of science literature in the 20th century, I think. It certainly was an important book to me when I read it in high school.

    The energy that powered that brilliant brain of his has returned back to the universe he studied so intently. There's something beautiful about that.

    He was born on the day 300 years after Galileo's death.

    RIP brilliant mind. Since the Paralympics are on in PyeongChang, here's a look back at Prof Hawking during London 2012...

    I'm so very sorry to see him go! He was a great man with a great mind. We were lucky to have him as long as we did, I guess.

    He was diagnosed with his motor-neuron disease in 1964 and told he only had a few years to live.
    @Darth Lars, he died March 14. Same day, since we're noting parallels, that Einstein was born. Which is also Pi Day. Convergence after convergence.

    Very sad news, He pushed his life expentancy by over 40 years so it shows the power of mind over matter. His contributions to science will always be among the greatest we will ever see.

    R.I.P. Professor.... We are all Stardust and now you are returning to them.

    Been looking at the news and social media. All those tributes.
    A section of the human race feels sadness today, but also enrichment.

    76 is a long life for anyone, but for a guy with his illness it's a miracle. I believe Hawking more or less had the same thing as Lou Gehrig and he died within a few years. Living with that disease for 40 years must have been hell, but it didn't stop him. Good for you, Stephen. Rest easy, man. Dance across the cosmos.

    It's also worth noting that he would not have lived that long without the dedication of his wives and family and friends! Taking care of someone with that kind of disability is no easy task. He was a lucky man!
