Stephen Hawking Scroll Saw Pattern.

Stephen Hawking 1/8/1942  -  4/14/2018

The world lost one of the greatest scientist of our time yesterday. Stephen Hawking was an English theoretical physicist, cosmologist, author and Director of research at the Centre for Theoretical Cosmology within the University of Cambridge.

Hawking was diagnosed with ALS early in his life. The disease  paralyzed him overtime and also took his ability to speak. He used a speech synthesizer built into his wheelchair to communicate. Luckily for the world the disease could not rob him of his genius. The prognosis for Stephen after the diagnosis was that he might live two years. He spent the next 50 plus years didicating his life to science.

Professor Hawking had the incredible ability to take advanced scientific subjects and communicate them to the general public. His book "A Brief History of Time" is one of my favorite books. I read the paper book then listened to the Audible version just because it was so awe-inspiring. The world of science has lost a great thought leader and iconic personality. He will be missed.
