Death comes to everyone sooner or later but I am grateful that we had this brilliant mind for decades

Sad. Kinda makes you wonder what thoughts he had on the universe that we might never know about. (At least not until someone else figures it out, if there was any validity to it.)

But... at least he no longer has to put up with living in that physical state he was stuck with for so long.

What an amazing life. A rolemodel for sure. Despite his physical disabilities he was a nice and funny man with a brilliant mind.

Lucky to have such a mind in our lifetime.

This man was not only a genius, he was a fighter in every since of the world.

I am genuinely saddened this morning. RIP, good sir...

RIP Stephen

His Sister (Mary Hawking) was a Doctor (GP) at my Doctor Surgery in my home town, she wasn't my main GP but I did see her a couple of times, she was actually my grandparents main GP. She retired a few years ago.

Don't be silly. Zephram Cochran probably is still not born yet. There is still time.....

On a more serious note, RIP Mr. Hawking. Enjoyed reading about your work, and seeing your occasional appearances on TV.

(Sheldon must be heartbroken today.)

It's quite admirable how he managed to live so long with that condition of his. He was very brave.

RIP

Agreed, considering he wasn't given long to live when he got diagnosed with his condition.

RIP
