“Inspiring” is a word that gets thrown around a lot, but Stephen Hawking was truly that – the Einstein of our time. This is my tribute to his life and his message.

  1. He is one such greatest human being I have ever come across in my life , really close to my heart.
    whenever I listen to him I just feel all the problems I going through my life can be overcome sooo easily… His sound only just awake my soul 🤍
    Huge respect for you "Sir Stephen Hawking"❤

  2. Happiest Birthday Dr. Stephan Hawkings …You were You Are And You Will always be an Inspiration For Us !!

  3. Easily the best YouTube video I have ever and will ever watch. This video made me tear up the first time I watched it, and I don't cry a lot. This man was a legend, trapped in his body yet free with his mind. I read "A Brief History of Time" and it is probably my favorite book ever, my mind was blown countless times. I hope that if and when we take to the stars, we will remember the name Hawking.

  4. He was living proof that the mind is far more powerful than the body. I wonder what his thoughts were. He's probably been to places in the universe in his own mind that I or anyone else could never dream of.

  5. and in the next 100 years too, we have to find a new home, because maybe in the next 100 years, the earth will be uninhabitable because of humans.

  6. I am 13 and Stephen hawking is my role model. Science is a big passion of mine and professor hawking is a big inspiration for me in this journey and whenever I feel like I'm not good enough I think that stephen hawking became one of the smartest person in the world in a wheelchair without being able to talk so I can definitely achieve at least a fraction of this with my healthy body.

  7. "According to quantum mechanics, space is filled with virtual particles and antiparticles that are constantly materializing in pairs, separating, coming together again, and annihilating each other. In the presence of a black hole, one member of a pair of virtual particles may fall into the hole, leaving the other member without a partner with which to annihilate. The forsaken particle appears to be radiation emitted by the black hole. And so, black holes are not eternal. They evaporate away, at an increasing rate, until they vanish in a gigantic explosion. Quantum mechanics has allowed particles and radiation to escape from the ultimate prison: a black hole."

    RIP Stephen Hawking (1942-2018). Your 50-year-old battle with ALS and your legacy shall never be forgotten.
