    I was hoping he'd make it to the singularity. He'll be missed.

    The last thing I would have liked to hear on my birthday :( I know Richard had a good relation with him.

    Today, finally, you will reach the stars, fare thee well Hawking.

    He once said, 'It would not be much of a universe if it wasn't home to the people you love.'
    We're less without you, Stephen.
    RIP

    Hawking made many a huge contribution for all of us by simply sharing his knowledge and understanding in a digestible way; that is a lesson for all of us to exercise our talents and make/ leave the impression that our abilities allow. Without doing so, just imagine what is missed... missed as much as when those who do make an impression are gone.

    He will be missed by his friends, family, and the Science community.
    May he rest in peace.

    So... has the world taken a step back when it comes to astronomy?
    Sad to hear this. I take care of people with problems like ms/parkinsons/alzheimers... I call all these conditions, "Locked in syndrome" where your basically just stuck in your chair. He was a lucky man though, because in spite of his condition which everyone expected to kill him long ago, he was able to overcome the locked in syndrome by possessing such a great mind.

    Sad to hear of his death. May her rest in peace. Hopefully now he can walk and run in the next life, like he used to in this life, before he got hit by that horrible illness.

    Stephen Hawking made one of his last appearances in "Hexagonal Phase", the final episodes of The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. He plays the voice of The Guide and joins the rest of the original cast.
