  • Stephen Hawking

    Source: http://www.nzherald.co.nz/world/news/article.cfm?c_id=2&objectid=12012781

    One of the world's greatest scientists and finest minds, Professor Stephen Hawking, has died at the age of 76.

    The physicist and author of A Brief History of Time died peacefully at his home in Cambridge early on Wednesday afternoon (NZT).

    In a statement Professor Hawking's children, Lucy, Robert and Tim said: "We are deeply saddened that our beloved father passed away today.

    "He was a great scientist and an extraordinary man whose work and legacy will live on for many years.

    "His courage and persistence with his brilliance and humour inspired people across the world.

    "He once said, 'It would not be much of a universe if it wasn't home to the people you love.' We will miss him forever."

    Very sad. A great man who will be missed.

    I am currently half-way through reading one of his books. The opening sentence of which is:
    We each exist for but a short time...

      A brilliant mind. One can only hope he accepted Christ in the end

        This is totally inappropriate for the Memorial Garden. You did this once before, were warned, and you will be pointed for this one.

          It would be entirely fitting if we could place his body in a black hole, giving a double meaning to the term "Hawking radiation."

                Thank you for the kindness of your thoughts.

                Hawking showed us all what can be accomplished when we use our all. Though he is gone, his work remains, and when he is forgotten, generations who do not know their debt will benefit.

                That's a better memorial than I could ask for.
