    Stephen Hawking dies aged 76

    http://www.bbc.com/news/uk-43396008

    World renowned physicist Stephen Hawking has died at the age of 76.

    He died peacefully at his home in Cambridge in the early hours of Wednesday, his family said.

    The Briton was known for his work with black holes and relativity, and wrote several popular science books including A Brief History of Time.

    At the age of 22 Prof Hawking was given only a few years to live after being diagnosed with a rare form of motor neurone disease.

They delight in acting in bad faith, since they seek not to persuade by sound argument but to intimidate and disconcert.

    I think we got lucky. Between hawkings and eienstein we got gifted two geniuses within the same century. I cant see anyone coming close to their calibre in my lifetime.
