    This made me so sad. RIP Professor Hawking and thank you for the massive contribution you made to science, you were a true inspiration.

    My thoughts are with his family and friends.

    We don't really know. Professor Hawking's field of study is so abstract that we can't prove most of his theories with our current technological capabilities. That's why he didn't win a Nobel Prize.

    As a side note, Professor Einstein didn't get his because of his discovery of general relativity (which was his greatest contribution to science, but very abstract), but for his work on the photoelectric effect.
