My son was quick to tell me that it was reported at 12.01 AM Wed 14 March EDT - (0401 GMT) that Stephen Hawking has died.

I was told this at 12.08 and it is now 12.14 am EDT.

I have also been informed that today - 14 March - was Albert Einstein's birthday!!
One wonders is there something out there, Stephen dying on what would have been Einstein's birthday, Or is it coincidence?
I'm thinking that perhaps Stephen knew the end was near and held on until the 14th.

It's been known to happen before - parents hanging on waiting for the kids to come home to say goodbye and so on.
My son also tells me that Albert Einstein and Stephen Hawking were both aged 76 when they died.

Interesting coincidences!!!
An amazingly brilliant mind. He will be missed.
I hope he donated his body to science so they can study how he lived so long with ALS. Maybe a breakthrough could be found.

He was a brilliant man and humanity owes him a great debt.
