Iconic Physicist Stephen Hawking Dies At 76

HuffPost Joe Satran,HuffPost 1 hour 41 minutes ago .

Stephen Hawking was diagnosed with a debilitating motor neuron disease when he was 21. He went on to become one of the world's most prominent scientists.

Stephen Hawking died Wednesday after complications due to amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, a progressive neurodegenerative disease. He was 76.

The world-renowned theoretical physicist and cosmologist was best known for his work on black holes. Hawking theorized that, contrary to the prevailing scientific belief that black holes were inescapable for all forms of matter and energy, they actually emitted a form of radiation ― now known as Hawking radiation. He also played a key role in the mathematical effort to unify Einstein’s general theory of relativity with the emergent field of quantum physics.

Sad news, indeed. The only person, apparently, to portray himself in the Star Trek universe, thanks to a poker game on the STNG holodeck...
