Physicist Stephen Hawking has died at the age of 76

dhw: QUOTE: "In a prepared statement, his children Lucy, Robert and Tim said:

“'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 for ever.'”

All the obituaries I have seen have contained the quote about love. It shows a great sense of perspective on the part both of the remarkable Stephen Hawking and of his obituarists.

He was a very great person in all spheres of human life.
