Science’s Brightest Star Goes Out
物理學家史蒂芬.霍金傳奇的一生
Legendary Physicist Stephen Hawking Dies at 76

CARL AZUZ, CNN ANCHOR
World-renowned physicist Stephen Hawking died at his home in Cambridge yesterday. He was born on January 8, 1942—the 300th anniversary of the death of the astronomer Galileo. Hawking was also a cosmologist, a mathematician and an author.
And while several of his theories met with skepticism or caused controversy in the scientific community, many people considered Hawking the world’s greatest modern-day scientist.

MATTHEW CHANCE, CNN CORRESPONDENT
By any measure, Stephen Hawking’s life was incredible—even more so because in the 1960s, he was diagnosed with ALS, or [a] motor neuron disease, and given just a few years to live.
This rare form of motor neuron disease left him virtually paralyzed [and] unable to express his profound vision of humanity and science without a voice synthesizer.

舉世聞名的物理學家史蒂芬.霍金昨天逝世於他位於劍橋的家中。他出生於一九四二年一月八日,就是天文學家伽利略逝世三百週年紀念日那天。霍金也是宇宙學家、數學家以及作家。
他的部分理論雖然在科學界遭受懷疑或者引發爭議,許多人仍認為霍金是當今世界上最偉大的科學家。

CNN特派員  馬修.錢斯
不論從什麼標準來看,霍金的一生都令人難以置信——尤其是因為他在一九六○年代被診斷出罹患肌萎縮性脊髓側索硬化症,這是一種運動神經元疾病,並且被宣告只剩下幾年能活。
這種罕見型態的運動神經元疾病導致他近乎癱瘓,沒有語音合成器的話,便無法表達他對人類與科學的深奧洞見。
