It is very heartbreaking to learn about the death of Sir Stephen William Hawking. He was a renowned cosmologist and theoretical physicist.
He inspired many genius minds to gaze upon the multiverse with interest rather than fear.
Stephen Hawking was born on the 300th anniversary of Galileo’s death (8th of January) and died on the 139th anniversary of Einstein’s birth and at the same age as Einstein who died in 1955 also at the age of 76…and on Pi day, 3/14 (American Calendar)
I was always fascinated by the way he thinks and his belief that we should find out how we ended up in this multiverse. Thousands of scientists and cosmos lovers around the world are very heartbroken to see such an icon passing away.
His theories inspired many young generations to understand universe with a different mindset.
I hope he finds solace and answers to all his questions in his after life. He fought his Motor Neuron Disease and became a successful Theoretical Physicist and Cosmologist.
Like a bright star among the skies, he will be always in the history of this Cosmos. I love the cosmos and reading about it. His books like “The Theory of Everything” and “The Universe in a nutshell” are very inspirational to me.
Some of Stephen Hawking’s Quotes:
Intelligence is the ability to adapt to change.
The greatest enemy of knowledge is not ignorance, it is the illusion of knowledge.
I have noticed even people who claim everything is predestined, and that we can do nothing to change it, look before they cross the road.
We are just an advanced breed of monkeys on a minor planet of a very average star. But we can understand the Universe. That makes us something very special.
My goal is simple. It is a complete understanding of the universe, why it is as it is and why it exists at all.
Life would be tragic if it weren’t funny.
I have no idea. People who boast about their IQ are losers.
People won’t have time for you if you are always angry or complaining.
We only have to look at ourselves to see how intelligent life might develop into something we wouldn’t want to meet.
Not only does God play dice, but… he sometimes throws them where they cannot be seen.
My condolences to his family members. Thank you for your contributions in helping us understanding this Multiverse Sir.
May your soul Rest in Peace!
