Professor Stephen Hawking’s death is the death of an epoch. Revered as a great physicist, his genius will always be celebrated.
Our world has indeed lost one of its greatest scientists. The death of Stephen Hawkings is being mourned by generations. He was widely acclaimed as the greatest physicist since Einstein.
This physicist had been a fellow at the Royal Society and a member of the US National Academy of Science. Stephen Hawking had a brilliant mind and his critical genius stretched through time and space. It would not be incorrect to say that he was one of the most acclaimed physicists of the modern times and even though he had bodily impairments this did not hinder his skills. He had a very sharp and engaging fashion of writing and his book ‘A Brief History of Time’ became globally accepted.
Hawking had the privilege of being one of Isaac Newton’s successors as Lucasian Professor of Mathematics at Cambridge University, he had been engaged in the search for the great goal of physics — a “unified theory. “This theory would resolve the contradictions between Einstein’s General Theory of Relativity, which describes the laws of gravity that govern the motion of large objects like planets, and the Theory of Quantum Mechanics, which deals with the world of subatomic particles. Stephen Hawking saw his work as a religious pursuit and explained that looking for a ‘theory of everything’ would enable humans to make sense of ‘ the mind of god’. The combination of critical intelligence and utter disability — for a while he could use a few fingers, later he could only tighten the muscles on his face — turned him into one of the most respectable figures of the world.
The 2014 film “The Theory of Everything,” was made to document the trajectory of Stephen Hawkings. The film was about his achievements despite being disabled. We pay our homage to this scientist who was truly a great name in the modern world.
