I believe I have a few words to say, sir. Just look at that face. The face of a thinker. A warrior. A man for all seasons. Yes, Stephen Hawking was all that and more. But he was not perfect. Perhaps his greatest fault was that he was too selfless. He cared too much for his fellow man, with nary a thought for himself. A man of limitless accomplishments, and unbridled modesty. I can safely say that to know him was to love him. And to love him was to know him. Those who knew him, loved him, while those who did not know him, loved him from afar.

I’m surprised that he lived as long as he did.

repeating what I said on the other thread

His theories on gravity, black holes, and the big bang are truly amazing. His scientific accomplishments in spite of his disabilities are inspirational. And his celebrity status brought much needed attention to the study of science — probably inspiring more than a few young scientists.

A huge loss for humanity. It takes a lot for me to hold someone in such high regard.

That being said, he seemed like he was in a living Hell, physically. I am glad he is free from his prison of a body.

Journey well our fallen brother.

Peace n love.

On one hand, I’m sad that he is gone. He is one great scientist after Einstein and he still had a lot he wanted to work on.

On the other hand, I think he died with a sense of fulfillment. He pushed his body’s limit and contributed greatly to the society. Not to mention he managed to live much longer than his doctor expected. I guess he didn’t regret much when he left Earth.

He is now one with the stars.

@Mimishu1995 – he got to be on Big Bang Theory, Star Trek: Next Generation, plus he got to go on a zero G airplane ride. What a trip!

If each of us could accomplish with our minds and bodies just one thing Stephen Hawking did
using just his eyes and ! (ONE) finger, what a spectacular planet we would inhabit.
May his spirit live on!

Without question, he was one of the greatest minds in our generation, but what always had me in complete admiration of him was his tenacity and spirit for life. No doubt he suffered a great deal and yet he prevailed. An admirable human being. May he rest in peace.

When technology advanced so he could have been given a more English sounding “voice” he refused, said that that the one he’d had for years was part of his identity & for that alone he had my respect.

And meanwhile, Drumpf continues to draw breath. There truly is no god.

@ragingloli Or God thought it was cruel for Mr. Hawkings to suffer from ALS and hear trump talk, so it was time to take him home.

Too bad he couldn’t have been launched in that Tesla…probably crossed his mind…

That would have been cool, but creepy, esp. for future space explorers who might come upon him. Skeleton in a space suit.
