May you keep flying like superman in microgravity
Remembering Stephen Hawking, a renowned physicist and ambassador of science. His theories unlocked a universe of possibilities that we & the world are exploring. May you keep flying like superman in microgravity, as you said to astronauts on @Space_Station in 2014 pic.twitter.com/FeR4fd2zZ5

His passing has left an intellectual vacuum in his wake.
His passing has left an intellectual vacuum in his wake. But it's not empty. Think of it as a kind of vacuum energy permeating the fabric of spacetime that defies measure. Stephen Hawking, RIP 1942-2018. pic.twitter.com/nAanMySqkt

We lost a great one today.
We lost a great one today. Stephen Hawking will be remembered for his incredible contributions to science – making complex theories and concepts more accessible to the masses. He’ll also be remembered for his spirit and unbounded pursuit to gain a complet…https://t.co/z1du859Gy2

That says something.

A truly fabulous human being.
It had to happen, eventually. We were lucky to have him for so long, and I was lucky to be able to work with him. A truly fabulous human being. Stephen Hawking. Funny, perverse, and, of course, brilliant.

Normally people get disheartened if they fail to get good marks and percentage. I saw many people who lost hope in life just because they had a minor accident. For all those Stephen Hawking is a true inspiration who had great self-motivation and willpower that led him to make his own mark in the field of Physics. Isn’t it? Share us in the comments. These scientists lost their lives to their own inventions.
