Dr. Hawking's incredible intellect was well known and celebrated. He made complicated concepts of the cosmos accessible to the masses. How many of us can fully appreciate the simple courage it took for this man to live his life and accomplish what he did given the challenges he faced everyday.

May he rest well now that he is finally free of the prison that was his own body. Few have accomplished so much from within such a brutally tight cage. A truly great man.

Wouldn't call it sad.

He beat the odds and lived longer than most healthy people.

He lived his life

RIP, but the world didn't get any dumber. I actually believe he was wrong about everything.

I am sorry to see such a great mind leave us

But he could not have picked a better day to go out on

I know he is chuckling somewhere

thanks for the string theory and many other great things you brought us, we weren't around, well at least I wasn't around, when we lost a legend like Einstein, but, at least this generation got the honor of your intelligence you brought us.

I'll just leave this here: https://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=4675953


AARON FREEMAN:

You want a physicist to speak at your funeral. You want the physicist to talk to your grieving family about the conservation of energy, so they will understand that your energy has not died. You want the physicist to remind your sobbing mother about the first law of thermodynamics; that no energy gets created in the universe, and none is destroyed. You want your mother to know that all your energy, every vibration, every Btu of heat, every wave of every particle that was her beloved child remains with her in this world. You want the physicist to tell your weeping father that amid energies of the cosmos, you gave as good as you got.

And at one point you'd hope that the physicist would step down from the pulpit and walk to your brokenhearted spouse there in the pew and tell him that all the photons that ever bounced off your face, all the particles whose paths were interrupted by your smile, by the touch of your hair, hundreds of trillions of particles, have raced off like children, their ways forever changed by you. And as your widow rocks in the arms of a loving family, may the physicist let her know that all the photons that bounced from you were gathered in the particle detectors that are her eyes, that those photons created within her constellations of electromagnetically charged neurons whose energy will go on forever.

And the physicist will remind the congregation of how much of all our energy is given off as heat. There may be a few fanning themselves with their programs as he says it. And he will tell them that the warmth that flowed through you in life is still here, still part of all that we are, even as we who mourn continue the heat of our own lives.

And you'll want the physicist to explain to those who loved you that they need not have faith; indeed, they should not have faith. Let them know that they can measure, that scientists have measured precisely the conservation of energy and found it accurate, verifiable and consistent across space and time. You can hope your family will examine the evidence and satisfy themselves that the science is sound and that they'll be comforted to know your energy's still around. According to the law of the conservation of energy, not a bit of you is gone; you're just less orderly. Amen.
