A Hero Has Passed

At 3:00AM Wednesday 14th March 2018, a sad story shook the world. World renowned British physicist Stephen Hawking was declared dead in his home in Cambridge by his doctor. Stephen Hawking was known for his impeccable theories surrounding black holes and also how he continued to persevere in his efforts even after his diagnosis of motor neurone disease where he was told that he only had 2 years remaining of his life.
He was both a genius and a hero who inspired many to continue in their scientific efforts for the benefit of mankind, despite him being practically paralysed. During his life he published several books on his theories and was also temporarily a professor at Cambridge. Later on in his life the biography: “The Theory Of Everything” was written and published as a film. He also made predictions on what would become of earth in the years to come.

However his death was not in vein, he managed to live 27.5 times his expectancy after his diagnosis 55 years before until he sadly passed of natural causes at the age of 76. His legacy has went on as on the day of his death, motor neurone disease charities crashed from the mass amount of donations they were supplied with in his honour.
