Stephen William Hawking, physicist, born January 8, 1942, died on March 14, 2018, aged 76. By the time he was 21 he was diagnosed to be suffering from an unspecified incurable disease, later identified as the fatal degenerative motor neurone disease amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, or ALS. Instead of succumbing to depression he focused on looking into the universe and raising fundamental questions about the nature of the universe. Defying he lived, and what a life it was!
