Stephen Hawking, the brilliant British theoretical physicist who overcame a debilitating disease to publish wildly popular books probing the mysteries of the universe, has died, according to a family spokesman. He was 76.
Considered by many to be the world's greatest living scientist, Hawking was also a cosmologist, astronomer, mathematician and author of numerous books including the landmark "A Brief History of Time," which has sold more than 10 million copies.
With fellow physicist Roger Penrose, Hawking merged Einstein's theory of relativity with quantum theory to suggest that space and time would begin with the Big Bang and end in black holes. Hawking also discovered that black holes were not completely black but emit radiation and would likely eventually evaporate and disappear.
I remember in particular that Hawking’s very small episode was when he attended a lecture Q&A. When someone asked about the recent withdrawal of a member of a famous orchestra, what cosmic effect would it have? Such a problem that seems to be completely out of sync with physics and even some spoofs.
Then Hawking answered slowly with his familiar mechanical tone: "I hope that those heartbreaking girls are concerned with the study of theoretical physics, because one day, the existence of multiple universes may be proved."
"Beyond our universe, there is another different universe. In that universe, he is still a member of the orchestra."
“The girl may also be willing to know that in another possible universe, she married this member and lived happily together.”
In our universe, there has been no Hawking who will comfort the little girl.
I am so sad.
