Stephen Hawking died peacefully last night, aged 76. Considering that he suffered from ALS and, at age 21, he was given two years to live, not bad. His children wrote:

“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. His courage and persistence with his brilliance and humour 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.”
