'The Big Bang Theory' cast pay tribute to Stephen Hawking

Stephen Hawking

I have so much I want to do first'. Perhaps it was his profound intellect, the incurable nervous system disease that slowly encompassed his body, or even his witty sense of humor that captivated me; or maybe it was all of the above.

Britain's legendary astrophysicist passed away at the age of 76 on Wednesday. His was a life lived with bravery and passion.

Chris James, director of external affair at the MND Association said: "Following the sad news of the death of Professor Stephen Hawking there has been a huge increase in the number of people accessing our website which caused it to be unavailable for a period of time".

"I have always tried to overcome the limitations of my condition and lead as full a life as possible".

The acclaimed British physicist breathed his last in the early hours of Wednesday, March 14, following complications due to amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) - a progressive neurodegenerative disease.

The Motor Neurone Disease (MND) Association, the United Kingdom equivalent of the ALS Association, noted on Wednesday that Hawking's life was inspiring to the large number of people who have also lived with the disease. And, of course, we follow Hawking's example by keeping our discussions on a level understandable by all.

Here are some of my favorite quotes from Hawking. "Be curious. And however hard life may seem, there is always something you can do and succeed at".

I also think the supporters enjoyed it so even if we play Man City, I think we have two good games". The Champions League quarterfinals draw will be broadcast live on BT Sport .

2 dead, 1 rescued in New York City helicopter crash
The East River separates the borough of Queens on Long Island from the Bronx and also divides Manhattan from Queens and Brooklyn. Two years before that, in July 2007, a Liberty sightseeing chopper carrying eight people dropped into the Hudson River.

"Remember to look up at the stars and not down at your feet".

"It would not be much of a universe if it wasn't home to the people you love".

The actor, who won an Oscar for his portrayal of Prof Hawking in 2014 film The Theory Of Everything, said in a statement: "We have lost a truly attractive mind, an astonishing scientist and the funniest man I have ever had the pleasure to meet. Work gives you meaning and goal, and life is empty without it", Hawking reminded them at the time.

A Brief History Of Time, published 1988 - "If we find the answer to that, it would be the ultimate triumph of human reason - for then we would know the mind of God".

Sometimes that's easier said than done for scientists, since they're supposed to appear to be "thoughtful, careful and right", Newling said. I also see people being downright mean toward one another.

What do those of us without Olympian IQs make of such a career? I am afraid that Olympic Games for the disabled do not appeal to me, but it is easy for me to say that because I never liked athletics anyway.

"His contribution is to engage the public in a way that maybe hasn't happened since Einstein", said prominent astronomer Wendy Freedman, former director of the Carnegie Observatories. "Only the Father knows". Hawking had suffered from a strain of a motor neuron disease since the age of 22 when he was given just two years to live.
