Stephen Hawking Dies Rest In Peace

I am truly sadden for the death of renowned physicist, an ambassador of science, professor Stephen Hawking  at the age of 76. His passing leaves a gaping hole in the Universe. You take your mind with you but gave us so much knowledge and wisdom, an exemplary life of courage. His theories unlocked a universe of possibilities that  now multiple scientists around the world are exploring.

I still can’t believe we just lost one of the greatest minds to ever grace this earth. A man who contributed so much to our world and our understanding of it.


“It would not be much of a universe if it wasn’t home to the people you love.”

“Science is not only a disciple of reason but, also, one of romance and passion”

“People who boast about their I.Q. are losers.”

“It matters if you just don’t give up”

“Look up at the stars and not down at your feet. Try to make sense of what you see, and wonder about what makes the universe exist. Be curious.”

“Time travel used to be thought of as just science fiction, but Einstein’s general theory of relativity allows for the possibility that we could warp space-time so much that you could go off in a rocket and return before you set out.”

“There is probably no heaven, and no afterlife either. We have this one life to appreciate the grand design of the universe, and for that, I am extremely grateful.”

  1. I have always had great admiration for Prof. Stephen Hawking. I am very saddened to hear of his passing, we truly lost a great mind. A while back I read a wonderful children´s book called George´s Secret Key to the Universe, written by Hawking and his daughter Lucy, and found it to be very interesting and easy to understand. I hope that children would take time and read it, because that was the magic of Prof. Hawking, he could make extremely complex topics accessible to people who have no science training.
    He had an open mind, did not judge, was wiling to consider many ideas, and not shy about giving voice to important issues.
    I loved that he enjoyed Star Trek, The Big Bang Theory, and used media to spread the idea that science is cool.
    I hope you are running through the Universe and have unlocked more secrets of the same.

  2. He was one of a kind wasn’t he? He was a courageous person who never let his disabilities stand in his way and was a brilliant scientist, respected by not only those in his field, but by esteemed scholars as well as well as lay people all around the world. I know that were I in his shoes, I would never have had the bravery to carry on.
