RIP Stephen Hawking, the only person in Star Trek to star as himself. Diagnosed with ALS in 1963, he was given 2 years to live. He survived 55 more years. As a kid, I read 2 of his books (I even understood some of it!) and will never be able to thank him enough.
Professor Stephen Hawking:
- Born on the 300th Anniversary of Galileo’s Death
- Died on π Day
- Died on Einstein’s Birthday
