Story
 
March 16, 2018 — The Lifeboat Foundation mourns Stephen Hawking's death.
 
Stephen Hawking was born on the 300th anniversary of Galileo's death. He has come to be thought of as the greatest mind in physics since Albert Einstein. With similar interests — discovering the deepest workings of the universe — he has been able to communicate arcane matters not just to other physicists but to the general public.
 
As the Lifeboat Foundation 2008 Guardian Award Winner, Stephen Hawking showed that by using critical-thinking skills, we can learn about global catastrophic risks and use this knowledge to save the human race from extinction. Read Hawking quotes!
