Famed astrophysicist and surprising pop icon Stephen Hawking has passed at the age of 76.

https://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/stephen-hawking-dead-obituary_us_55e9fa97e4b03784e275e7c1

It nothing else, it's remarkable he survived so long with ALS, which is a terrible, usually quick-acting condition.

That's depressing. I mean, I guess I shouldn't be surprised given his physical state but it's still strange to read that.

I hope he died in England instead of America so no religious nuts can protest at his funeral claiming he's in he'll for being an atheist.

Someone I unfriended on fb a while back, but Kristi is still friends with posted a long criticism of Stephen Hawking based on the help he got for dealing with his condition while she's been struggling to get any help. Her condition is at least partially self inflicted and much milder than what he had. It was nice to hear that people have been pulling her up on it and pointing out that it isn't Prof Hawkings fault that she isn't getting the help she thinks she is entitled to.

I salute someone like Hawking who didn't let his disability destroy his ability to enjoy and take part in life and he leaves a legacy that will be remembered for a long time.

Agreed: RIP, Prof. Hawking.

I will always remember him in one of the few Star Trek TNG episodes I could stand watching where he played himself alongside Albert Einstein and Isaac Newton.  Smile

Another thing i will always remember him for is his championing of the ice-bucket challenge for ALS: he begged off due to bronchitis he had just gotten over but nominated his kids to do it in his place.  TeddyR

I admired his ability to have fun with life despite his condition.  His guest turns on BIG BANG THEORY always left me chuckling.
