Physicist Stephen Hawking dies in England at age 76

Some colleagues asked me how Hawking could breed and follow his students, in particular those enrolled in the Doctorate, given his difficulty in writing. We are poorer for his absence, but the memory of this remarkable man enriches us all. "Even Stephen Hawking said, our Vedas might have a theory superior of Einstein's law E=MC^2". He was instantly recognisable all over the world. Einstein's general relativity seemed to predict its own demise. The climbing coupon rates will add to the cost of capital to further dampen productive investment. He called Hawking an "incredible scientist" who changed the way people think about the universe.

"We are deeply saddened that our beloved father passed away today", according to the statement, which was distributed by British news media and attributed to Lucy, Robert and Timothy Hawking. "My love and thoughts are with his extraordinary family".

Hawking's work upended scientists' understanding of gravity and raised questions that have yet to be resolved. "(President Donald) Trump's action could push the Earth over the brink, to become like Venus, with a temperature of two hundred and fifty degrees, and raining sulphuric acid", Hawking said.

Hawking has made many seminal contributions to cosmology, black holes and the relationship between geometry, gravitation and quantum theory, too numerous and technical to mention here. There is an intermediate stage. A severe attack of pneumonia in 1985 left him breathing through a tube, forcing him to communicate through an electronic voice synthesizer that gave him his distinctive robotic monotone.

Hawking had most recently met Pope Francis when he delivered his presentation on "The Origin of the Universe" at the academy's plenary session on science and sustainability in 2016.

At the opening of the centre, Hawking said, "the importance of special places and special times, where magical progress can happen, cannot be overstated".

HAWKING: We now have lots and lots of observational data and a generally-agreed picture of how the universe is evolving.

Hawking was very much a part of popular culture.

Harsh Vardhan went one step ahead and made statement on behalf of someone who is not alive to validate the authenticity of it. However, he seems to have forgotten that technology has made it possible to document things that can be accessed anytime, anywhere. He started visiting the Waterloo centre in 2009.

LEONARD MLODINOW: He agreed that that book, "A Brief History Of Time", was probably the least-read, most-bought book ever. He was able to move only a few fingers on one hand.
