Did you know Stephen Hawking was also a 'rock star'?

Titan of science Stephen Hawking dies

Many friends and fans have also hailed his humour, with actor Eddie Redmayne, who portrayed Prof Hawking in 2014 film biopic The Theory of Everything, calling him "the funniest man I have ever met". He may not have been the greatest physicist of all time and did not get the Nobel Prize.

Director-General Fabiola Gianotti of the European Organization for Nuclear Research, known as CERN, hailed Hawking for the "enthusiasm, vitality and passion for knowledge" that he showed during visits to the Large Hadron Collider and related facilities in and around Geneva.

The Motor Neurone Disease Association's website stopped working yesterday following a surge of traffic to after the announcement of the death of its patron Professor Stephen Hawking. But I should note that many outstanding scientists did such forecasts, For instance, Isaac Newton forecasted the end of the world several times. "He was a warrior".

I try to fill my Twitter feed with the thoughts and ideas of Elon Musk, the creator mentality of Mythbuster Adam Savage, along with Bill Nye and Neal deGrasse Tyson's attempts to make science cool, and other insights from science-y people.

'Remember to look up at the stars and not down at your feet.

"He has inspired a whole generation with his ability to present complex science in a popular way". Even our Vice President, who other than being a woman and the widow of a model public servant, isn't very inspirational if you come to think of it.

When thinking about Hawking's perspective on life, I am reminded how incredibly blessed I am. He was 76 years old.

Hawking's death was also noted by some for falling on the birthday of another renowned theoretical physicist, Albert Einstein, and Pi Day, celebrating the mathematical constant equal to 3.14.

Stephen Hawking has battled ALS for decades.

Additionally, Hawking's book, The Nature of Space and Time, which he wrote with Roger Penrose, a former University of Oxford mathematics professor, was by Princeton University Press in 1996.

Hawking was the best-known theoretical physicist of his time. Undeterred and facing the prospect of an early death, Hawking went on to Cambridge to become a brilliant researcher and Professorial Fellow at Gonville and Caius College where his tenacity and reluctance to give in to his condition, spurred him on toward many intellectual breakthroughs. Science doesn't disappear when a scientist dies - pupils and followers who can continue the work of their teacher (probably with greater success) always remain.

At the age of 21, while Stephen was pursuing his PhD at Cambridge university, he was diagnosed with a disease called Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), which according to the doctors is "100 percent fatal" and such patients do not survive more than 2 years.
