Today we learned that our friend Professor Stephen Hawking has passed away peacefully at his home in Cambridge. Professor Hawking was a world-renowned British scientist known for his work on relativity and black holes. He also wrote several popular books including A Brief History of Time.
On March 24th of last year, our team had the honor of meeting and working with Professor Hawking when we helped him appear in Hong Kong as a HumaGram from his home in Cambridge. This was the first time Professor Hawking had appeared in Hong Kong since 2006.
During the presentation, we had the pleasure of hearing about his life’s work and his opinions on the human mind and issues such as science and technology, education and what the future holds in light of current affairs.
Later that year we were delighted to once again help beam him to FutureCon, a three-day science, technology, and entertainment celebration that took place inside Awesome Con during June 16th – 18th, 2017 in Washington DC.
We would like to thank Professor Hawking for unlocking the enigma of the universe- and making it approachable – for everyone. The world has lost a beautiful mind and a brilliant scientist. Our thoughts are with his extraordinary family.
