“Remember to 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. And however difficult life may seem, there is always something you can do and succeed at. It matters that you don’t just give up” said Stephen Hawking, who died at the age of 76 this morning. He might have left us, but his ideas will always remain with us.
We Have Lost Greatest Scientist This Morning: Stephen Hawking Dies
He was famous for his work on Universe, Black Holes, and Relativity. He worked gravitational singularity theorems in the framework of general relativity and the theoretical prediction that black holes emit radiation, called as Hawking radiation. He was a supporter of the many worlds interpretation of quantum mechanics.
His famous books are The Grand Design, A Brief History of Time, Black Holes and Baby Universe, Universe in a nutshell, and the Theory of Everything. He was the first to set out a theory of cosmology as a union of a relativity and quantum mechanics.
He died peacefully at his home in Cambridge, United Kingdom. He had a rare disease called Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis that gradually paralyzed him over decades.
His death left the world in grief as he has given so much to this world. People all over the world are paying emotional tribute to the scientist. “Stephen Hawking was born January 8, 1942, on the 300th anniversary of Galileo’s death. He died today, March 14th, on the anniversary of Einstein’s birth. Time is circular – no beginning, no end” writes Warren Leight (famous American Playwriter) on Twitter.
He not only taught us about Science but life too. As we say adieu to him, never forget his lesson that “however Bad life may seem.. while there is a life.. THERE IS A HOPE”
