    How Stephen Hawking changed my life, and yours

    News, Nathan Myhrvold, Published on 16/03/2018

    ยป Most of us spend most of our lives without any sense of the imminence of our mortality. This wasn't true for Stephen Hawking. He was diagnosed with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis at age 21 and given months to live. Whenever somebody uses the expression "delaying the inevitable" in my presence, I always reply, "Why yes, I woke up this morning alive." I know that some day that won't happen; none of us lives forever, so all of life is about delaying the inevitable. On Wednesday, this caught up with Stephen Hawking -- but not before he had managed to delay the inevitable by more than 50 years, a time he spent exploring the universe, with the Sword of Damocles dangling above him at every moment.
