Surviving many decades beyond expectation, physicist Stephen Hawking has died at the age of 76.

Well… damn.

There are people who will be remembered not just generations down the line, but centuries even millenia. I believe we’ve just seen the passing of one such. I’m not sure there are many others alive today who will be recalled as a such a scientific giant.

    Wow I knew this day would come one day but damn. Just seems unreal. A legend passed.

    In centuries to come, I suspect Hawking will be right up there with Galileo, Newton and Einstein. Only none of those others ever guest-starred on STAR TREK and THE BIG BANG THEORY.

    people who can understand high mathematics and the bleeding edge of theoretical physics are rare enough. People who can do that AND bring some of that back down so the layman can start understanding it, immeasurably more so.

    He will be missed.
