    Renowned physicist Stephen Hawking, died peacefully at his home near Cambrjdge aged 76, which is remarkable given that when diagnosed with a form of motor neurone disease in 1963, he was told he had just 2 years

    RIP, Stephen.

    RIP, Stephen.
    RIP indeed. A remarkable mind, perhaps the more remarkable because of his disease because, as he said, the disease caused him to marshal his thoughts in a concise way.

    Also remarkable was the life support system that kept his body functioning at a biological level to keep his brain functioning.

    And perhaps strange that he was never awarded a Nobel prize, possibly because some his theories have not really been proved or observed, such as the evaporation of black holes - as Professor Brian Cox stated this morning on R4.

    Apologies if this appears as sheer laziness, but do you happen to have a link to that radio show? Would be cool to listen to Brian Cox's thoughts on Mr Hawking.

    It was in an interview on the ‘Today’ programme this morning.

    The show page is here

    https://www.bbc.co.uk/radio4

    The actual programme will be on BBB iplayer when the current edition of The ‘Today’ programme ends.

    Humanity and perhaps the Universe is a poorer place without Professor Stephen Hawking.. Very sad. Maybe Elon Musk can pay tribute somehow on his next Falcon Heavy launch.

    If anyone deserves to be fired towards the nearest black hole, it's Stephen! Wrap him up in a solid gold coffin and send him off on a journey. What a legend he was.
