I'm afraid the world got a lot dumber. Humankind just lost something singular and amazing.

He outlived his expected life expectancy by decades. 76 is pretty good.

RIP.

For someone who was supposed to die in his early 20's you showed us all quite a bit. The universe was lucky to have you. I hope you've found peace before and after.

Humankind has been fortunate to have him outlive ALS for so long. His advances in black hole theory have laid the foundation for so much of our understanding of cosmology. Thank you, Stephen Hawking.

The great mind of our generation and more, what an amazing person and in addition overcame so much with ALS to persist and fight to extend our knowledge.

I highly respected him and his work as well.

I'm just saying there is currently no evidence that aliens have made it to earth, and if they did, it would take millions of years before a signal could be sent back to their home world and millions more before they come back to harvest earth. Is anyone beyond crazy conspiracy nuts actually "afraid"? Like do you wake up in fear of aliens?

Shouldn't aliens equally fear us?
