Hawking said Vedas have theory superior to Einsteins e=mc^2: S&T min

NASA sent a message out into the twittershpere that read, "Remembering Stephen Hawking, a renowned physicist and ambassador of science".

After Hawking discovered his motor-neuron disease, he said it taught him not to pity himself.

I may not be familiar with the intricacies of Hawking's work in physics, but I could sympathize with his battle with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (often called Lou Gehrig's disease, after the baseball star who received the diagnosis in 1939).

He wrote a book, titled "A Brief History of Time", in 1988, which sold over 10 million copies. (Coincidentally, Hawking was a later recipient of the same honor.) As I recall, it was on that trip that Javits also visited the Senate chamber where he had served until Sen.

"I wanted to thank him for the inspiration he gave to my dad to keep living and to keep looking up to the stars", Burgess, who lives in Britain's Lincolnshire, told Xinhua.

"He was a great scientist and an extraordinary man whose work and legacy will live on for many years". It eventually chained him to a wheelchair, increasingly motionless and later speechless without the use of a voice synthesizer.




Hawking never quite achieved his "theory of everything", or an adequate explanation of the origin of the universe, and he acknowledged in later years that it might not be achievable. It is not good enough that a website dedicated to the Vedas makes this claim. We ignore his advice at our own peril.

For instance, a lecture in the 102nd Indian Science Congress held in Mumbai examined ancient aviation technology in the Vedas and claimed that aeroplanes existed in India 7,000 years ago and they travelled from one country to another and from one planet to another.

Hawking, then, represented the consensus view of modern science, which sees itself as the successor to religious faith, since science supposedly sheds the bright light of reason on things only faith could explain in earlier times. In my opinion, one should concentrate on activities in which one's physical disability will not present a serious handicap. "There is no heaven or afterlife for broken-down computers; that is a fairy story for people afraid of the dark". That outlook, as much as the knowledge it enabled him to pursue, represented a rare gift.

Hawking also brought inspiration to many aspiring students.

Graham, on the other hand, admitted he didn't know the future, but said in his autobiography, "Just As I Am": "I do know this: the best is yet to be!" We welcome additional perspectives in our comments section as long as they are on topic, civil in tone and signed with the writer's full name.
