    Iconic Physicist Stephen Hawking Dies At 76

    Stephen Hawking died Wednesday after complications due to amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, a progressive neurodegenerative disease. He was 76.

    The world-renowned theoretical physicist and cosmologist was best known for his work on black holes. Hawking theorized that, contrary to the prevailing scientific belief that black holes were inescapable for all forms of matter and energy, they actually emitted a form of radiation ― now known as Hawking radiation. He also played a key role in the mathematical effort to unify Einstein’s general theory of relativity with the emergent field of quantum physics.

    Hawking used his position as one of the world’s most famous scientists as a platform to discuss a wide range of issues, from the existence of extraterrestrial life to the nature of philosophy. He skyrocketed to public prominence in 1988, when he published his first general-audience book, A Brief History of Time: From the Big Bang to Black Holes. The cosmology treatise has sold approximately 10 million copies worldwide, making it one of the best-selling science books of all time.

    A sad day for science. The study of Cosmology owes him a huge debt and we have lost a genius.

    I think his best work was done on The Simpsons. Joking of course.

    He was an amazing man who overcame a lot in his life. A mind like his will be missed.

    Back in the 90s Apple computers’ speech synthesizer sounded like Stephen Hawking, sooo I would make prank calls using it pretending to be Hawking telling people they are Nobel prize nominees.
