So sad :(  But I agree with OP, his work in science really was quite amazing.

Damn it he was our Einstein. I don't think we can get many minds like his. He will be missed

His outstanding work aside, Stephen Hawking was always someone I wish I could have a conversation with. I always felt like he got "reduced" to his work a lot, and I am curious about the person.

 

A painful loss for sure.

The man was amazing, and one of the strongest people on this planet, not for physical strength, or even mental, but for all of it. He survived when the odds were so pitted against him. It was unfair on him to be struck down with such a terrible disease, but he fought through it, and gave people so much to think about. he will be sorely missed, and all text to speech programs will miss his loss.

Rest in peace Mr Hawking, you were the one who told me the universe is bigger than it seems(he was the first scientist i knew).

Humanity as a collective is now more stupid than it was yesterday.

 

RIP.

An extraordinary man with an extraordinary mind. I read A Brief History Of Time in my early twenties and for a few brief hours I felt as if I almost understood the universe.

 

I'll have to see if I can extract it from the random small mountain of books I've accumulated over the years and re-read it.

Awful news.

I've been reading that he was born on Galileo's deathday and died on Einstein's birthday. Very fitting for an astrophysicist.

This is one of the deaths that shook me up to my knees. Truly a great mind and will be deeply missed.

You have to admit though, he did pretty good for himself. Was told he'd live for two years after his diagnosis, he lived 55.

If only it could be longer.

One of the greatest minds of our species, now nothing more than stardust. I think he wouldn't of had it any other way.

RIP

Humanity has lost another great mind. Whilst most certainly is not the only brilliant mind of his generation, he is most definitely the one who spent the most time in the spotlight. Hopefully this vacancy will encourage new people with new and ambitious ideas to step in and fill the newly created void. Pray that whomever takes this mantle is as selfless and strong as he was.

 

A diagnosis that would have effectively destroyed the spirit of most people did not dwindle his; in fact, it probably strengthened him. He and his frail body have contributed things that very few people of similar ambition and more fortunate circumstances could ever dream to. Like Galileo, Sir Isaac Newton, Marie Curie, Albert Einstein and many others before as well as alongside him, Stephen Hawking has expanded the foundation of knowledge on which future scientists will hopefully build upon as we continue attempting to advance ever skyward instead of imploding anticlimactically on the ground.

 

What a beautifully poetic coincidence that Stephen Hawking was born on the day of Galileo's death and passed away on the day of Albert Einstein's birth. The universe is doing a rather terrible job of convincing us that everything is completely random. Methinks I am detecting some kind of cycle, perhaps?

 

Sleep well, dear physicist. May you rest peacefully.
