They said Stephen Hawking had 2 years to live in 1963.— Adam Best (@adamcbest) March 14, 2018
They said Stephen Hawking would never speak again in 1985.
He stuck around until 2018 with one of the loudest voices on the planet.
Nothing kept him from his dreams. We honor him by living the same way.
By the greatest cosmic coincidence, his passing happened on Albert Einstein's birthday AND Pi Day.
Many mourn the loss of the iconic physicist who beat all odds and achieved so much for the science community.
