Like all passionate about Physics and the beauty and brilliance of Science, scientific thought, and human curiosity for the immensity of the mysteries of the universe, Stephen Hawking was truly a great inspiration for me. We lost a genius. His death struck me this morning, right after I woke up. My colleagues in the physics course, all obviously admirers and fans of his legacy, we feel the importance and weight of this loss, a person we always like to comment on his works and theories, even in our superficial knowledge of mere University students.
RIP Stephen Hawking. You will be deeply missed.
