Stephen Hawking, 67, famous scientist and author, is very ill and has been hospitalized near Cambridge University, England, where he is a tenured professor.  Hawking has Lou Gehrig’s Disease (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, or ALS), which is usually fatal after three years. Hawking has survived for more than 40 years since his diagnosis.

Mathematics and physics geeks from all over the world are wishing Stephen a quick and spedy recovery.  Here’s a link to some of Stephen’s funniest and most insightful quotes.

Also, while most mere mortals may not be able to understand it, you should take the time to read A Brief History of Time.  Unless you are a theoretical physicist you will likely not understand it all, but it will change the way you look at the universe.
