Stephen William Hawking. 1942 – 2018. Cosmologist, space traveller and hero
It is not really a sad day for losing the body of our great scientist Stephen Hawkins; he has left us his brain, his ideas, his thoughts, his discoveries and he has taught us who we are.
Although it is a joyful day for the intellectually challenged Christians and Moslems and all religious idiots at large, their dream that Hawkins ideas died with him is laughable.
One thing this writer is happy about is that Stephen Hawkins was not in this wasteland when his body left his mind behind. He was at Cambridge where he followed his great predecessor like Isaac Newton.
You are my Hero Dr. Hawkins and that is to eternity.
Stephen Hawking is the former Lucasian Professor of Mathematics at the University of Cambridge and author of A Brief History of Time which was an international bestseller. Now the Dennis Stanton Avery and Sally Tsui Wong-Avery Director of Research at the Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics and Founder of the Centre for Theoretical Cosmology at Cambridge, his other books for the general reader include A Briefer History of Time, the essay collection Black Holes and Baby Universe and The Universe in a Nutshell.
In 1963, Hawking contracted motor neurone disease and was given two years to live. Yet he went on to Cambridge to become a brilliant researcher and Professorial Fellow at Gonville and Caius College. From 1979 to 2009 he held the post of Lucasian Professor at Cambridge, the chair held by Isaac Newton in 1663. Professor Hawking has over a dozen honorary degrees and was awarded the CBE in 1982. He is a fellow of the Royal Society and a member of the US National Academy of Science. Stephen Hawking is regarded as one of the most brilliant theoretical physicists since Einstein.
