Who died last night or a few seconds sooner if you happened to be passing on a High Speed Train.

Perhaps the greatest mind but worst body of our time....A fact that shows God has a sense of humour.

Never quite worked out the theory of everything such as why is abbreviation such a long word but did quite well with black holes( can we still say black?

Good luck Stephen when you meet St Peter I think you will need it.

I started to read Brief History Of Time but got lost by the third page when the boy was bouncing a ball on a station platform.

First Ken Dodd and now Stephen Hawking

RIP Stephen

What an amazing man. The description "genius" is ridiculously over-used these days. It couldn't be more appropriate in the case of Hawking. Outlived his terminal prognosis by about 50 years, maintained his sense of humour despite his condition. Made science understandable (almost)

A great scientist, who also showed a lot of insight into matters outside of his own specialist field too.
RIP

I watch 'The Big Bang Theory' which has brought his humourous side out many times and they have introduced him to the next generation.

His robotic voice will remind you of him whenever you here it where ever you are R.I.P. to a true genius.

Big Bang, Simpsons, Star Trek, Futurama, Little Britain, appeared on 2 Pink Floyd tracks. He did the lot

A brilliant man and human being by all accounts. What I liked about him he made physics accessible to the likes of me who never did physics at school. Although I can't say I understand everything he says in his books at least I get the gist. What's more it is mind boggling stuff which makes you consider what reality really is. Heis one of those guys I would have lovedto have seen or met in the flesh not that I would have known what to say to him apart from can I have your autograph. He also had a good innings considering his illness. Rip Stephen.

My daughter has arrived in from school and asked why we'd not told her about his death.

Stephen Hawking and Jim Bowen the same day. Did anyone ever see them in the same room at the same time? XD

RIP gentlemen. Both giants in their respective fields.

He could actually live on in a way if someone else used his voicebox.

They both appeared in a 1987 edition of Bullseye. Prof Hawking was teamed up with Freddie Trueman. It came as a big surprise to everybody was Stephen was the one throwing the arrars.

It's great to see society recognising a true intellectual giant. Rather than harping on about Big brother or some other sheite.

His remains are going to be laid next to Isaac Newton

That seems odd, Newton is buried in Westminster Abbey and Hawking being an atheist surely wouldn't want to be there?

Here is the info mate. He's having his service at Cambridge then the state are claiming his remains as a tourist attraction next to another great.

No doubt the tourist attraction will include an exhibit of Hawkings wheelchair.

If god exists it’s going to be an interesting meeting (in robot voice) “who the feck are you?”
