आधुनिक ब्रह्माण्ड विज्ञान के प्रतिभाशाली स्टार स्टीफन हॉकिंग, 76 वर्ष की आयु में मृत्यु हो गई
Stephen Hawking, the talented star of modern cosmology, died age of 76
The famous British physicist Stephen Hawking, whose mental talent and physical disability gave him the name and inspiration of a home all over the world, his age died at the age of 76, his family said Wednesday. Hawking, whose 1988 book ‘A Brief History of Time’ became worldwide Bestseller and strengthened the status of his superstar, dedicated his life to discovering the mysteries of the universe.
His genius and wit won over fans from far beyond the rarified world of astrophysics.
PM Narendra Modi said:
Professor Stephen Hawking was an outstanding scientist and academic. His grit and tenacity inspired people all over the world. His demise is anguishing. Professor Hawking’s pioneering work made our world a better place. May his soul rest in peace.
He died peacefully in his home in Cambridge, British city, in the early hours of Wednesday morning.
“We are deeply saddened that our beloved father passed away today,”
The children of Professor Hawking, Lucy, Robert and Tim said in a statement to the Britain news agency Association.”He was a great scientist and extraordinary person whose work and heritage would last for many years.”
Hawking defied predictions that he would only live a few years after developing a form of motor neurone disease in 1964 at the age of 22. The disease gradually robbed him of mobility, leaving him confined to a wheelchair, almost completely paralyzed and unable to speak, except through his characteristic voice synthesizer.
Hawking family said:
“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 forever.”
Born on January 8, 1942, Stephen William Hawking became one of the most respected scientists in the world, obtaining comparisons with Albert Einstein and Sir Isaac Newton. His work focused on bringing together relativity, the nature of space and time, and quantum theory, how the smallest particles of the Universe behave, to explain the creation of the Universe and how it is governed.
In 1974, he became one of the youngest members of Britain’s most prestigious scientific body, the Royal Society, at the age of 32. In 1979 he was appointed Lucasian Professor of Mathematics at the University of Cambridge, where he moved from the University of Oxford to study theoretical astronomy and cosmology.
Inside the shell of his increasingly useless body was a razor-sharp mind, fascinated by the nature of the Universe, how it was formed and how it might end.”My goal is simple,” he once said.
“It is a complete understanding of the universe, why it is as it is and why it exists at all.”
