Re: Stephen Hawking Died

Are they sure it wasn't just his talking computer? Have they tried unplugging and plugging it back in?? He can't have died!! He's about the only person making the human race seem somewhat intelligent!! A very, very sad day........ Cry

Before coming here I went to the BBC News home page and saw the headline I had a physical and genuine gut wrench, it was something I wasn’t expecting. Here was me thinking people like Hawking were immortal. Cry

Re: Stephen Hawking Died

That's a tragic loss to humanity. He wasn't supposed to live past his mid 20s so to live another 50 (+/-) years must be some sort of record. Well done to him!

Still very sad news to hear of his passing though.

I need a new signature... i'm bored of the old one!

Re: Stephen Hawking Died

Professor Stephen Hawking has revealed the 'one mystery' he finds most intriguing in the world is women. Cool_smiley

Re: Stephen Hawking Died

It's amazing what he achieved despite his debilitating illness; and he kept a sense of humour and wasn't against laughing at himself.

 

Quite an insperation as well as an acute scientific mind. The word 'legend' could be attributed to him.

...even with a brain the size of a planet that mystery will never be solved. Wink

Sad news. A great loss to humankind, who he has served so well.

Re: Stephen Hawking Died

Sad loss indeed.

Did anybody else buy his 'Brief History of Time' and not have a clue?

Maybe I'm just thick, but it was the same with Richard Dawkins and his book 'The Selfish Gene'. I expect he'll be another of my generations legends to pass on to greater or lesser things.

Re: Stephen Hawking Died

It's all been said in tributes but he had a genius mind and is indeed a great loss to humanity.

I have the Blu-ray 'The Theory of Everything' which is a very moving film of his life.

Very sadly missed Cry

Re: Stephen Hawking Died

Coincidence of course - nothing more - but interesting to note that it's Albert Einstein's birthday today.
