Stephen Hawking Has Died

A true giant in modern physics has passed.


World-renowned physicist Stephen Hawking has died at the age of 76. Born in Oxford, England, Hawking became famous for his work on black holes, cosmology and quantum gravity – his contributions to science spanned more than four decades.

He also wrote many books on those subjects, including the 1988 best-seller "A Brief History of Time," which gives an account of the creation of the universe. He was a professor of applied mathematics and theoretical physics at Britain's Cambridge University for decades. Hawking was married and divorced twice. He and his first wife had three children. As a young man, Hawking began developing symptoms of Lou Gehrig's disease. By his early 30s, the muscle-wasting condition had left him almost completely paralyzed. He had to communicate through a computer-generated voice synthesizer after a life-threatening bout with pneumonia forced him to have a tracheotomy in 1985. He also struggled with a multitude of other health problems as a result of the ALS. Over the years, Hawking's acclaimed work won him countless prestigious positions. He became one of the youngest Honorary Fellows of the Royal Society of Arts and was a member of the Pontifical Academy of Science. He also became a fellow of the Gonville and Caius College at Cambridge and served as the distinguished research chair at Waterloo's Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics. He even took his place in pop culture with notable guest appearances in TV shows like "Star Trek," "Futurama," and "The Simpsons," as well as being mentioned often and his appearance in "The Big Bang Theory."

  • "We are deeply saddened that our beloved father passed away today. He was a great scientist and an extraordinary man whose work and legacy will live on for many years," Hawking’s children, Lucy, Robert and Tim, said in a statement. "His courage and persistence with his brilliance and humor inspired people across the world. He once said, 'It would not be much of a universe if it wasn't home to the people you love.' We will miss him forever."

Other reactions via social media include:

  • “May you keep flying like superman in microgravity, as you said to astronauts on @Space_Station in 2014” - NASA
  • “His passing has left an intellectual vacuum in his wake. But it's not empty. Think of it as a kind of vacuum energy permeating the fabric of spacetime that defies measure.” - Neil deGrasse Tyson
  • “He inspired generations to look beyond our own blue planet and expand our understanding of the universe. His personality and genius will be sorely missed. My thoughts are with his family.” – Astronaut Tim Peake
  • “R.I.P. Stephen Hawking. Among his many profound contributions to this world was this simple sentiment: ‘It would not be much of a universe if it wasn’t home to the people you love’.” – Ambassador Samantha Power
  • “RIP Stephen Hawking. You were a super human.” – Josh Duhamel

Boy’s Lemonade Stand Raises $7K For Slain Deputy’s Family

March 14, 2018

The Bottom Line: Indiana six-year-old’s lemonade stand has raised thousands to help the family of a local sheriff deputy who was killed in the line of duty.


It’s still below freezing in Kokomo, Indiana, but business was booming at six-year-old Malachi Fronczak’slemonade stand. He started the stand three years ago and insisted that all police officers, firemen, and first responders get free cups. And now he’s selling the sweet stuff to raise money for the family of a local sheriff deputy who was recently killed in the line of duty.

Malachi’s dad says he wants to be a police officer when he grows up, and he’s excited to sell lemonade because this is how he can serve and help others right now. And since last week, the kid has raised more than $7,000 for the family of Deputy Jacob Pickett.

"Just seeing his heart, and how it affects others, is amazing," Malachi's dad says. "He has taught me to look for opportunities around us to help others and show love."
