Sometimes it feels like science is losing ground in the modern world, but people still look to the stars for answers about who we are and how we come to be here.
Yesterday, the world lost one of the most venerable and visionary scientists of our time, Stephen Hawking; a true visionary figure who has been hailed by many as "an inspiration to millions".
Ben Hansson, a third-year astrophysics student, said he was shocked to hear about the death of a man who'd inspired countless physicists and cosmologists.

Renowned astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson said in a tweet that the passing of Hawking will leave "an intellectual vacuum". In addition, Hawking's extremely important discoveries were linked with such exotic objects as black holes.
I have been worrying these past couple of years that my world is running out of idols and role models and noticed that I have been gravitating towards achievers and dreamers in science and technology more than politicos and "leaders".

Prof Hawking joined the growing rank of academics who refuse to endorse and engage with Israeli academic institutions till Israel respects global law, ends its occupation and respects Palestinian human rights.

Stephen Hawking has battled ALS for decades.
But most of all, he'll be remembered for expanding our universe, opening up new realms of human possiblity and achievement while exploring scientific theory.
He predicted the existence of mini-black holes at the time of the Big Bang.
