Stephen Hawking, one of the world’s great scientists, has died - Physics
The world lost a bright star with the passing of Stephen Hawking. This obituary ends poetically:

> No philosophy that puts humanity anywhere near the centre of things can cope with facts like these. All that remains is to huddle together in the face of the overwhelmingness of reality. Yet the sight of one huddled man in a wheelchair constantly probing, boldly and even cheekily demonstrating the infinite reach of the human mind, gave people some hope to grasp, as he always wished it would.

He definitely gave that hope to millions of people.
