On the morning of March 14 was died Stephen Hawking was probably the most irreplaceable person on the planet. In 22 years, doctors have pronounced his sentence: to live a couple of years. Lateral amyotrophic sclerosis is a disease of the nervous system. It is not treated. And he then had lived under still 55. Shook hands with presidents and popes, were in the movies, turned over the minds.
In the 1980s, after severe pneumonia, Stephen Hawking lost his voice forever. That is, in fact, lost the most important thing — the ability to communicate their ideas to people. And then he deceived nature again. His speech synthesizer is powered by a single mimic muscle on the cheek.
He himself was not averse to acting: although over — popular "the Simpsons", at least in the frame — not less popular "the big Bang Theory". On the 67th birthday Hawking threw a Grand feast, where he invited ... time travelers. No, he had someone to celebrate - three children, he was married twice. But with travelers more fun. No one, however, never came.
Stephen Hawking, physicist: "Maybe one day someone living in the future will find information about my party and use the time machine to come. And to prove that the time travel will be possible!» "We believe that life spontaneously arose on earth. This means that somewhere else in the infinite universe, she also was to appear. Somewhere in space, perhaps the mind is already watching the lights lit by us, worrying what they mean." If universe and give him another 10 years, who knows how he would have changed it.
