Stephen Hawking had a attractive, uplifting message for people living with depression
Did you know Stephen Hawking was also a 'rock star'?

Hawking had famously said, "Life would be tragic if it weren't amusing", and it seems like he truly believed in it. Share with Hawking have had the same doctorate director. He called him a "scientist of admirable intuition, who knew even more extraordinarily to give a human face to cosmology and to astronomy". Our condolences go out to the family and friends of Stephen Hawking.
The two had met in 2014, during a charity event in London's St. James' Palace. Realizing that our paths will cross, Gerry and I both tried to get Hans to stop and engage Hawking, imagining that Hawking would be delighted to meet the eminent Bethe, victor of the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1967 for his discovery of how stars generate the energy to shine. Hawking replied with humor, saying: "Yes, it is copyrighted actually". Though Hawking beat the odds for more than five decades, the scientist told the Guardian in 2011 that death was never far from his mind.
That's because the Nobel committee looks for proof, not big ideas.
For those of you who want to go deeper than The Theory of Everything (now streaming free on Netflix - and a fantastic film, by the way), there are some great documentary series and specials honoring the legendary physicist. Instead, he says it rewards discovery.
His was dubbed one of the most brilliant theoretical physicists since Albert Einstein. He got it for describing the photoelectric effect, only after it was verified by Robert Millikan, said Harvard astronomer Avi Loeb.
It was Hawking's famed sense of humour that helped make him accessible to the average person.
Speaking of the disagreement with Hawking's position on some issues, I can remember his warning that humankind can disappear in 600 years because of a global catastrophe. He declined to comment on whether Hawking should have been awarded the prestigious prize, in line with the Nobel policy. Above and beyond the great research he did, his impact as a communicator was fantastic. He visited the royal palace in Stockholm in August 2015.
Stephen Hawking, one of the foremost scientific mind the world has ever seen, passed away on Wednesday, March 14, at the age of 76.
The European Space Agency shared a photo of Prof Hawking in 2007 experiencing zero gravity aboard a plane, alongside a caption which said he "showed us there are no limits to achieving our dreams". "He was a warrior". And though he was confined to a wheelchair and was paralyzed, Hawking continued his work.
And of course, no one can forget Hawking's crucial contributions to culture-by way of his breakout appearances on The Simpsons and Star Trek, and of course, at UC Berkeley. Even our Vice President, who other than being a woman and the widow of a model public servant, isn't very inspirational if you come to think of it. For me, it is always hard to imagine that these great minds could simply cease to be. However, despite Hawking's challenges and his overt sarcasm, he always maintained a positive outlook on life and he had a constant desire to work toward something bigger than himself.
A lot of the legacy Hawking left behind is in the form of his books, which he would often write for a popular audience rather than for his fellow physicist.
Hawking was the best-known theoretical physicist of his time. At the age of 21, he was paralyzed and doctors gave him only 2 years to live.
