Stephen Hawking has died at the age of 76.

Stephen Hawking has died at the age of 76.
A great mathematical physicist; if anyone deserved a Nobel Prize, he did:

https://news.sky.com/story/scientist-ste...6-11289119
And without delay Peter went quickly out of the synagogue (assembly) and went unto the house of Marcellus, where Simon lodged: and much people followed him...And Peter turned unto the people that followed him and said: Ye shall now see a great and marvellous wonder. And Peter seeing a great dog bound with a strong chain, went to him and loosed him, and when he was loosed the dog received a man's voice and said unto Peter: What dost thou bid me to do, thou servant of the unspeakable and living God? Peter said unto him: Go in and say unto Simon in the midst of his company: Peter saith unto thee, Come forth abroad, for thy sake am I come to Rome, thou wicked one and deceiver of simple souls. And immediately the dog ran and entered in, and rushed into the midst of them that were with Simon, and lifted up his forefeet and in a loud voice said: Thou Simon, Peter the servant of Christ who standeth at the door saith unto thee: Come forth abroad, for thy sake am I come to Rome, thou most wicked one and deceiver of simple souls. And when Simon heard it, and beheld the incredible sight, he lost the words wherewith he was deceiving them that stood by, and all of them were amazed. (The Acts of Peter, 9)

Massive loss to the scientific community.
Dying to live, living to die.

Damn, well, considering the state of his health I am not too shocked but this is still really sad.

Perhaps.

But I've also heard It said, include by notable Nobel prize winning physicists, that Hawking's actual contribution to advancing the state of physics nowhere near justify his outsized fame as physicist amongst general public, and he would be remembered more as a personality than as a physicist.

Sad

He was such an inspirational person, showing just how much you can make of life even in very difficult circumstances. Also an embodiment of the power of science. Sad to lose him.

He lived an amazing length of time with ALS.

RIP.

Maybe just as well he died now before he lost what little means of communication he had left to him rather than being a prisoner in his own mind.

A great loss.
It's amazing 'science' always seems to 'find' whatever it is funded for, and never the oppsite. Drich.
