    A truly remarkable man.

    Doing all that he did AND having to live with Motor Neurone Disease. An inspiration to all.

    RIP

    Such a shame, it's a big loss to the world :( He did incredibly well to achieve so much despite his illness, truly an inspiration to us all.

    How on earth he lived to that age given his prognosis, I have no idea. On top of that, he just happens to have been one of the defining physicists of his time and managed to make huge contributions whilst severely disabled. Huge amount of respect for anyone that can do any of those things - to say it would be difficult is an incredible understatement. RIP.
