ON Pi Day 14th March 2018, Kidsfreesouls join the world in sadness & express condolences to family and colleagues as we say goodbye to Stephen Hawking. Just like Pi never ends, your amazing mind has left our planet an endless legacy which you kindly shared with #WRAwesome and the world!
Remembering Stephen Hawking, a renowned physicist and ambassador of science. His theories unlocked a universe of possibilities that we & the world are exploring. The British physicist Steven Hawking is living proof that someone can overcome enormous obstacles and still flourish as a human being.
The 76-year-old theoretical physicist, one of science’s most famous luminaries died on March 14, also known as National Pi Day — an annual day for scientists and mathematicians around the world to celebrate the value of pi that even includes deals on pizzas and actual pies. Suffice it to say that the noteworthy coincidence was not lost on the internet.
The date of Hawking’s death — 3/14 — is significant because 3.14 are the first three digits of pi, a bedrock of geometry. Specifically, it’s the ratio of a circle’s circumference to its diameter. Naturally, the fact that science’s big celebration overlapped with the day the life of the party left us is making people geek out about the details.
His passing has left an intellectual vacuum in his wake. But it’s not empty. Think of it as a kind of vacuum energy permeating the fabric of spacetime that defies measure. “May you keep flying like superman in microgravity” he said to astronauts on Nasa Space_Station in 2014.
As soon as news spread that Hawking died early Wednesday morning in London, people were quick to to connect the dots.
Intelligence is the ability to adapt to change.
The greatest enemy of knowledge is not ignorance, it is the illusion of knowledge.
I have noticed even people who claim everything is predestined, and that we can do nothing to change it, look before they cross the road.
Stephen Hawking: “I have learned not to look too far ahead, but to concentrate on the present”
About Pi Day:
Pi Day is an annual celebration of the mathematical constant π. Pi Day is observed on March 14 since 3, 1, and 4 are the first three significant digits of π. In 2009, the United States House of Representatives supported the designation of Pi Day.
14th March is the 30th Anniversary of Pi Day. Here’s What You Should Know About the Irrational Number.
