Why Stephen Hawking never won a Nobel Prize

Stephan Hawking died

Alex Flournoy, a professor at Colorado School of Mines, says he got into physics because of Stephen Hawking.

He was portrayed in both TV and film - recently by Oscar victor Eddie Redmayne in The Theory of Everything, which charted his rise to fame and relationship with his first wife, Jane.

Hawking, who died at his home in Cambridge, England, on Wednesday at age 76, became the public face of scientific genius.

"Pi comes up in all areas of mathematics and mathematics is very important to both Einstein's theories and Stephen Hawking's theories", Chris Soteros, U of S mathematics & statistics department head, said.

In his 2013 memoir My Brief History, he recalled: "At the time, I thought my life was over and that I would never realise the potential I felt I had".

Tim Berners-Lee, inventor of the World Wide Web, said: "We have lost a colossal mind and a wonderful spirit".

"You'd find the average astronomer such as myself doesn't even try to follow the more esoteric theories that (Hawking) pursued the last 20 years", Fabian said.

In light of Hawking's death, his many fans are posting tributes about the ways his work changed their understanding of their place in the universe. "I've been to talks Hawking has given and can not follow them myself".

As a result of that research, Hawking proposed a model of the universe based on two concepts of time:?"real time", or time as human beings experience it, and?quantum theory's "imaginary time", on which the world may really run.

"He certainly had a way of picking his moments", said Adam Ritz, chairman of the department of physics and astronomy at the University of Victoria.

"I remember when I first started dating him, I said, 'Oh my God, think of the music, think of the songs, '" says Trainor.

His success in turn transformed him into a massively popular scientist, one as familiar to the wider world through his appearances on The Simpsons and Star Trek as his work on cosmology and black holes. After that, Roberts dropped them off at the Empress for lunch before Hawking headed back to Seattle. "But it was really sticking to see the reality of how long it took him to communicate".

"Rest in peace, Stephen Hawking", he said.

The illness gradually robbed him of mobility, leaving him confined to a wheelchair, nearly completely paralysed and unable to speak except through his trademark voice synthesiser.

A brilliant British astrophysicist, Hawking died earlier Wednesday after spending most of his life confined to a wheelchair by motor neurone disease.

If I were starting research now, I might study molecular biology, the science of life.

Nasa issued its own Twitter eulogy, publishing a video of the scientist grinning as he soared into weightlessness on a zero gravity flight at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida, escaping his wheelchair for a brief period.
