One of the greatest scientists of our time, Stephen Hawking, passed away on Wednesday, March 14th 2017. Hawking lived a remarkable life, overcoming his ALS (Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis or Lou Gehrig’s disease) diagnosis and living for 56 years despite being given only three years to live. Hawking used his 56 years to contribute many discoveries and theories that have had a lasting impact comparable to that of Einstein. Hawking contributed to most of our understanding of black holes, including that they actually eject matter which led to the discovery of Hawking Radiation. Hawking wrote “A Brief History of Time: From the Big Bang to Black Holes,” which sold 10 million copies worldwide.

 

 

Hawking’s contributions were not just limited to science. He was also an inspiration to disabled people everywhere, a constant reminder that even your body cannot limit what you can do.  Also, he has done many things that many cannot say they have, like visiting every continent including Antarctica, or going on a zero gravity plane flight on his 65th birthday.

 

Hawking profoundly contributed to the world of science and beyond, and his works and books served as an inspiration to many. Stephen Hawking was one of the greatest minds to ever live, and he will be sorely missed by all who appreciated the work he did to better the human race.
