    I'll never forget the day I was driving on I=95 from Jacksonville Fla to Norfolk Va, listening to his audiobook A Moment In Time. He was describing the non-symmetry of sub atomic particles as they are rotated and I suddenly understood it (having not understood in chemistry class). I got so excited I almost lost control of the car! Wow.

    Sad - but he beat the odds, and did so much.

    Great sense of humor, too. Did this with Monty Python some time back - it was part of their "live" show

    OH MY... what a wonderful bit I've never seen. Thanks so much for posting this :)

    Stephen had such a wonderful sense of humor and it's totally evident here....

    RIP Dr. Hawking - hell, you lived 5 years longer than my mother and 30+ years longer than my Dad - ya done good!! May I hit 70 I'll be happy even without all the crap you had to put up with in your life, physically.

    Thanks for all you did for Cosmology Dr. Hawking.... I'll always be a fan :)

    Unlike Einstein, Hawking denied the existence of God and an afterlife. One wonders where he is now. I certainly wish him no harm.

    Interesting why it is not front page news on the zed, I think it should be. RIP Stephen.

    It's a shame he never won the Nobel.
