RIP Stephen Hawking 2


The word of science and physics said goodbye to a profound contributor today, on March 14th, 2018.  Let us give thanks for all the contributions from Stephen Hawking.

Besides all of the lessons on quantum mechanics, the mysteries of the universe, and the meaning of time, one of his biggest lessons was that we can all still be a great contributor and communicator for science.  We just have to have the courage and persistence to find our own voice, then find our own unique way to deliver it.

Here’s a short interview Stephen Hawking had with a grad student in planetary science at Cal Tech.  Worth a watch and listen on this memorable day. Spoiler alert – it ends with a hug.

    I read his book at age 12. I didn’t fully understand it, but I got a clear sense that the quantum world follows different laws than those that predominate in the macroscopic world, and that it can be understood without resorting to mysticism. He will be sorely missed.
