STEPHEN HAWKING JOINS THE STARS

Today we lost more than an author, scientist & professor. A unique individual that had a short life expectancy. Stephen lived over 50 years longer than what doctors have told him when he was diagnosed with ALS so many years ago.

Hawking said that in a way, it was his disease, and the thought  of not having much time left, that caused him to pour his heart and soul into his work.  It seems that once he got started, he just never quit.

WHY WE HAD TO HAVE MORE

Scientists don't fit the mold of a superstar, but whether it was Stephen's humor, discoveries, or the way he made science accessible to the general public, this is one Scientist we just couldn't get enough of.  I personally hope the world realizes what a special place we are in time, to have had this extraordinary man for so many years.

He will be missed.
