American astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson tweeted: "His passing has left an intellectual vacuum in his wake" while George Smoot, who won the Nobel Prize in Physics, described Prof Hawking as "very competitive". The conference is bringing together some of the world's most accomplished theoretical physicists to discuss the question of whether singularities in black holes exist and whether Hawking Radiation has bearing on their existence.
"In this day and age, we are able to provide such wonderful support for breathing, for feeding, and physical therapy and rehab to maintain muscle strength", she said, while adding that Hawking's mental makeup and resilient nature could also have played a role. Doctors expected him to live only a few years. He fought to extend this deadline several times over. In a report from NME, Jim Parsons shared an on-set photo of Hawking together with the cast via Instagram and wrote a simple yet touching message: "Thank you, Stephen Hawking".
I try to fill my Twitter feed with the thoughts and ideas of Elon Musk, the creator mentality of Mythbuster Adam Savage, along with Bill Nye and Neal deGrasse Tyson's attempts to make science cool, and other insights from science-y people.
In a statement after Hawking's death at age 76 on Wednesday, she said: "He was a brilliant example on how to face disease with courage".

This appears to be a step in the right direction, though, and should lead to a little more convenience for clumsy Galaxy fans. Just consider buying a case first.
"He has inspired a whole generation with his ability to present complex science in a popular way".
"If we find the answer to that, it would be the ultimate triumph of human reason - for then we would know the mind of God". "Work gives you meaning and goal, and life is empty without it", Hawking reminded them at the time.
The vice chancellor of the University of Cambridge is praising Stephen Hawking as an inspiration to millions. The 26-year-old has been out of action with an ankle ligament injury and has been forced to wear a protective boot in his recovery.
Russian exile found dead in London
The 67-year-old tycoon had been one of Russia's most powerful figures in the years after the collapse of the Soviet Union. Metropolitan Police said formal identification has not taken place yet pending a post-mortem identification.
In that time he earned a place at Oxford University to read science before going on to complete his PhD in cosmology at Cambridge before the onset of his illness spurred him to some of the greatest works in his field.
Kaley Cuoco, who plays Penny on The Big Bang Theory, in which Hawking appeared as a cameo, said: "He made us laugh and we made him laugh".
As a graduate student in 1963, he learned he had amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, a neuromuscular wasting disease also known as Lou Gehrig's disease.
But perhaps Hawking's most memorable pop culture moments are his TV cameos - both in live action and animated form - when he lit up the screen with his signature voice, his dry wit, and his indomitable spirit.

He had a hand in every basket over the first four minutes of the second half, while the Zags were building a 42-30 advantage. That's a formula for an upset, especially when UNC-Greensboro sophomore forward James Dickey (10 points) got going late.
