“It surprises me how disinterested we are today about things like physics, space, the universe and philosophy of our existence, our purpose, our final destination. Its a crazy world out there. Be curious.”
― Stephen Hawking
Stephen Hawking, 76, the brilliant theoretical physicist who overcame a debilitating disease to publish wildly popular books probing the mysteries of the universe, has died. Sir Hawking suffered from amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), also known as Lou Gehrig's disease, and was confined to an electric wheelchair for much of his adult life. In his own words, a new star is in the heavens tonight. Hawking Memorial thanks Sir Hawking for his wisdom, advice and presenting us with The Theory of Everything.
