Stephen W. Hawking died a spokesman for Cambridge University confirmed.
He was a best-selling author and renowned physicist that traveled the universe with his mind. He researched the origins of the cosmos and was popular for both his work and the fact that he spoke through a computer, something that is very rare. His spirit and the never give up attitude also contributed to his popularity.
The reason was he had a rare neuron disease (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis) or Lou Gehrig’s disease. The doctors gave him a few years to live, but he proved them wrong.
His theories caused clashes within the scientific community but debate and dialog is always fruitful when it comes to new discoveries.
He did not believe in the afterlife… but he has definitely found out about that. He is a person that left his mark on the modern scientific scene and undoubtedly his work will continue to have an impact on young and old scientists alike.
