Damn a brilliant mind gone forever. Still the fact he made it as long as he did is a bit of a miracle.

Default Re: Stephen Hawking dies at 76

The preeminent scientific mind of my lifetime... He inspired my generation in so many ways, and was even able to poke fun at his own fame (tie, the Big Bang Theory). If you haven't seen it yet, a must watch documentary is "A Brief History of Time".

Rest in peace Mr Hawking.

Amazing that he survived 55 years with ALS. For those who have been exposed to it, it is truly a horrible disease.

A great thinker, yes. However his living example of the indomitable human spirit may be his greatest contribution to the species.

Obviously there will be a lot of (well-deserved) tributes to his brilliance today. And his amazing spirit to accomplish so much while fighting that horrible disease was remarkable as well.

But one thing I want to say is that he was really funny. I didn't read (or understand) all of his books or anything but of what I did read I remember laughing a lot at his jokes and being awe struck at his ability to make the most complicated concepts more accessible to the "less-brilliant" mind

Sort of fitting that he passed on Pi day, which is also Einstine's Birthday.

It seems scientific research is far more dispersed nowadays than it used to be. There isn't a single person that we can say achieved scientific greatness. He may be the last.
