Stephen Hawking Dead at Age 76

Stephen Hawking Dead at Age 76

Viewers were left stunned by Wednesday's "This Morning" after it accidentally played Meghan Trainor's "All About That Bass" over a Stephen Hawking tribute.

Richard Green, of the Motor Neurone Disease Association - the British name for ALS - said Hawking met the classic definition of the disease, as "the flawless mind trapped in an imperfect body".

The Theory Of Everything became the title of the 2014 film that charted Prof Hawking's early life and how he came to terms with motor neurone disease, the crippling disease that gradually paralysed him.

"He certainly had a way of picking his moments", said Adam Ritz, chairman of the department of physics and astronomy at the University of Victoria.

Trump's Tariffs Are A Promise Kept To His Supporters
China has repeatedly vowed to defend its "legitimate rights and interests" if targeted by U.S. trade actions. Amending these provisions couldn't be done with a simple majority, the Standard's editors say.

"I'm hoping copies of the invitation, in one form or another, will survive for many thousands of years."

However, Hawking has an Israeli scientist to thank for some of his most groundbreaking research.

Hawking was especially adept at popularizing science for the general public, and with his passing, Gowdy said, "We lost a spokesman as well as a leading light in the field".

"I remember when I first started dating him, I said, 'Oh my God, think of the music, think of the songs, '" says Trainor. "We've created life in our own image". "It was a shock to me but he outlived (it) and the medical prognosis was wrong", Narlikar said, adding that the condition of the iconic British physicist worsened over the years.

He said Hawking showed to the world that radiation can escape from black holes which are believed to absorb everything, and this was his "biggest discovery". I'm so in love my dad started yelling at me, like, 'There's too many love songs! "But it was really sticking to see the reality of how long it took him to communicate". The pair divorced in 2007.

Stephen Hawking passed away at the age of 76. He grew up in and around London.

Hawking died on March 14, the same day renowned theoretical physicist Albert Einstein was born and a day recognized by many in the academic community as Pi Day, 3.14 for its numerical relation to the date.

"The realization that I had an incurable disease that was likely to kill me in a few years was a bit of a shock", he wrote in his memoir.

Trudeau Says Canada Does Not Link Trump Tariffs to NAFTA Deal
While the penalties take effect later this month, Trump has encouraged countries to try negotiating exemptions for themselves. Yet privately, many nations are moving to consider trade concessions that would exempt them from the US tariffs.

The illness gradually robbed him of mobility, leaving him confined to a wheelchair, nearly completely paralysed and unable to speak except through his trademark voice synthesiser. "So I have been able to devote myself completely to research", he wrote. He liked travel as a pastime and had visited Antarctica in 1997 and experienced weightlessness during a routine zero-gravity training flight with astronauts in 2007, the University of Cambridge said in a release. "This is partly because scientists, apart from Einstein, are not widely known rock stars, and partly because I fit the stereotype of a disabled genius".
