Stephen Hawking died in 2018 on March 14th at the age of seventy-six. He was an intelligent, curious and bright mind.
He was an amazing physicist. He was a human that had a lot of struggles in his life. He was diagnosed with motor neuron disease in 1963. He was 21 when the doctors said that he will live just two more years. He did not accept that and he lived many more.
He overcame the odds. Of course, a person with so many struggles must have felt depressed at some moment. In a speech given at the University of Southern California when he talked about black holes, he related them with his life and compared that to people that suffer from depression.
He said that the conclusion of the lecture is that the black holes are not so black as we thought and they are not an eternal prison.
A thing can get out of this black hole and can go outside or to some other universe. His message is that when you feel like a black hole, you should not give up because you can go out from the hole.
Hawking also said that we should look up at the stars, we should not look down at our feet.
The world is thankful to Stephen Hawking
He did a lot of things for humanity. He got more than ten honorary degrees. He is considered as one of the most amazing physicists since Albert Einstein.
However, he was really humble and funny. Stephen was a fighter.
Thank you, Professor Stephen Hawking.
