Scientists and disability advocates in Ottawa are mourning the loss of Stephen Hawking, long considered a visionary and one of the greatest physicists of all time. Even years after his diagnosis, he often felt he didn't have long to live so he was determined to complete as much as possible. Teachers of the Balseiro Institute pay homage to him with his words in this note.
A motor neurone disease (MMD) charity said an influx of donations and visitors to its website following the death of Stephen Hawking caused it to crash as it couldn't cope with the "overwhelming" demand.
His most renowned discovery, "Hawking radiation", resulted serendipitously from a dispute he ultimately lost with another young theoretical physicist, Jacob Bekenstein, over whether black holes had entropy. He has been referred to in popular culture, films, and television shows such as "The Big Bang Theory" and "The Simpsons".
And then, what are the odds that exactly 300 years after Galileo was born a cosmologist, in the same month as Isaac Newton, and died on the 14th of March, precisely on Albert Einstein's birthday? The 26-year-old has been out of action with an ankle ligament injury and has been forced to wear a protective boot in his recovery.
There's so much that can be said about Hawking and his contributions to the world that it likely would make this article run on and on for many pages. A theoretical physicist by training, he has spent over two decades working on the quantum theory of information and its application to black holes. And it is striking how he could maintain that condition despite the bad disease he suffered, "added the physicist".
He had produced some of the most cosmological researched about gravity and the properties of the black hole.
Silvia Mollerach works in the field of cosmic rays of very high energies and is a teacher in the Balseiro. "Even in recent years he continued to publish papers with big ideas that generated lasting ripples among physicists", said Wang Yi, an assistant professor of physics at the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology. During the interview Oliver asked Hawking, "You've stated that you believe that there could be an infinite number of parallel universes".
"I would never claim this".
"Along with a picture of Prof Hawking with the cast of the programme, she added: "#StephenHawking is free from the physical constraints of this earthly condition we all exist in and he is soaring above us now marvelling at it all". "Everyone can enjoy a life of luxurious leisure if the machine-produced wealth is shared, or most people can end up miserably poor if the machine-owners successfully lobby against wealth redistribution".
