He's destined to go down as a cultural icon of science. He was practically a living metaphor, the ultimate example of brains over brawn and mind over body. He embodied the sort of poetic dualism humans love, and as such he will be remembered for a very long time.
His name will live on alongside some of the greatest minds in modern history, like Democritus, Newton & Einstein etc he moved us forward just that little bit. We're just a little less blind & a little less ignorant each time one of these exceptional individuals come along.
"One, remember to look up at the stars and not down at your feet. Two, never give up work. Work gives you meaning and purpose and life is empty without it. Three, if you are lucky enough to find love, remember it is there and don't throw it away." - Stephen Hawking
Rest in peace! Thank you for your life.
They gave you 2 years in 1963 Professor. God may not play dice with the universe, but you beat the odds anyway.
Bloody good effort to make it to 76 with that illness.
Thank you for all your contributions to our world, Stephen.
Rest in peace, mate.
Humanity has lost one if its greatest minds
There isn't a doubt in my mind that he'll join the ranks of Einstein, Salk, and Curie
2nd oldest ALS survivor, outlived expectancy by 50 years
He'll always be alive in that time traveler party
Did anyone see where the US president condemned the Russians? Neither did I.
It would be a bold move. "We can get anyone, anywhere at anytime. We did it once before and we have done it again and there is nothing you can do about it."
Sends a powerful message. It's almost so unbelievable and brash since the last time it's seems almost hard to believe they did it again.
State Department did, though: https://www.state.gov/secretary/remarks/2018/03/279201.htm
Official response from Putin -
but staying under will require unprecedented global cooperation.
Yes, I agree: we're all doomed.
Nolan, 71, a former judge, used drugs and threats of arrest to force women and girls under the age of 18 into sex acts.
Trump: "Yes but there are 2 sides to the story" when supporting his ex-male staff who beat up their ex-wifes/partners.
Trump is a fucking disgrace.
Trafficking kids? Only 20 years? If ever there was a time for capital punishment...
Elgible for parole in four years. Disgusting
So what happened to the 100 years he faced for the 28 counts? Did his sentencing shrink from 100 years to 20?
I was watching my BBC news feed and it basically went from "Plane missing" to "plane has crashed, there are no expected survivors" in a few seconds (on my feed anyway).
It crashed, 71 onboard and apparantely no chance of survivors.
Flight confirmed as crashed by BBC now.

First commercial crash in over a year, yeah?
Update for those new here. **seems that some people in the comments below are connecting this comment to president trump and also making jokes. Please stop. Any mass death tragedy is something to treat with a bit of sincerity and solemnity. I would have voted bernie sanders.
My comment was more in reference to the timing since the last fatal commercial jet aircraft accident and reflects personal thoughts regarding system fragility. Air travel is one of those rare industries where over time there is progressive improvements in safety. ***
Kinda amazing to think that mere 9000 years ago, a drop in the ocean by universe or even life on earth standards, digging 5 metres under the earth was the greatest achievement of mankind. Nowadays we watch a car being sent into outer space via rectangular piece of plastic and glass.
I feel like someone amazing is being discovered everyday. I don't know what technology smarter people than I have created to make these discoveries so consistently but please keep it up.
What a weird mixture of racism LOL.
I’m pretty sure dinosaurs were walking around then. At least that what my Vice President tells me!
Question..can Puerto Rico sue the company they made contract with? Since goods weren't delivered like agreed upon.
This is about Puerto Rico Federal Affairs Administration in Kissimmee, Florida.
NOT the story about FEMA contracting Tribute Contracting LLC (a one person company)
JFC people, read the article. /u/alternate-source-bot fucked it up but they're a bot. wtf is your excuse, everyone else?
If they can live and not eat the courthouse, I don't see why not.
but that varies state to state. Not even sure how that would apply country to country
Puerto Rico is a commonwealth of the United States. They are United States citizens so it's the same country.
I hope the younger generation kills Facebook
I can't dump Facebook.
'Cause I never joined in the first place.
I left facebook because it is cancer to my eyes.
It’s happening anyway. People are spending way less time on Facebook lately.
So, he is willing to withhold payments to our men and women in uniform for a stupid fucking wall? Noted.
Why doesn't he just make mexico pay for it like he promised? Solved!
I was told Mexico was going to pay for the wall
I’m pretty conservative when it comes to immigration, but it frustrates me that Trump has put so much attention on the wall. Most illegal immigrants today are coming legally and overstaying their visas, not trekking across the border. This wall is going to be so fucking expensive (financially and politically), and it’s not even going to accomplish its purpose.
