'The Big Bang Theory' cast pay tribute to Stephen Hawking

He's being remembered for his contributions to science, but some in our area are remembering him as an inspiration to people living with a disability. This was unusual for someone who made a career by proving that black holes were not dead ends but gave off radiation. As the world paid their respects to a man who defied medical predictions on his life expectancy, Neymar Jr posted an image with his own message, one taken from the Englishman's many quotes. He countered that many great scientists have also been religious. The celebrated physicist contracted ALS disease (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis) in 1963 at the age of 21. Fully aware of his fate, Hawking lived life to the fullest.

Stephen Hawking, the award-winning physicist and author, whose books included The Universe in a Nutshell and A Brief History of Time has died.

From A Brief History of Time (1988): Hawking later said he had used the word "God" figuratively and was in fact an atheist. Cosmology gained because he lived over half a century longer. Some suggest that because he developed the disease at such a young age, he was able to fight it somehow, but this is still an unproven theory.

Stephen Hawking was many things-the most celebrated theoretical physicist of our time, a scholar who occupied the same seat at Cambridge as Isaac Newton, an explorer of cosmic concepts beyond most people's grasp.

Acting NASA Administrator Robert Lightfoot noted Hawking's role as a "passionate communicator who wanted to share the excitement of discovery with all", adding that his "impact can not be overstated". In the statement, he wrote, "Today, the world lost a giant among men, whose impact can not be overstated".

Stephen Hawking was fiercely independent despite being confined to a wheelchair. He also left us with his shared worries, and warnings, about what he perceived as threats to humanity's survival. The cast of The Big Bang Theory were extremely complimentary in their praise of the renowned genius and poured their hearts out to show just how much he meant. "Thank you Dr. Hawking for enlightening us and blessing us with your wisdom and courage". "All we need to do is make sure we keep talking". For Hawking though, he had done what nobody had achieved and brought science and complicated text about the universe into something simple to understand to the mainstream public.

"Caius is Stephen - they have been intertwined for over 50 years", added Sir Alan, who first met Prof Hawking in 1965.
