He was a young man with extremely high intelligence, who had just received a first-class Bachelor Honors Degree in physics at Oxford University. A promising future would have been waiting for him if it had been not for his ALS. The disease soon made him unable to move. Doctors gave him just two years to live. Everything became meaningless. He lost the will to live and sank deeply into depression.
But at last, he decided not to give up. Despite the fact that he might be dead on the next day, he continued to try, to work, to make the most of every single minute. Miracle happened. 2 years became 50 years, and he achieved wonderful things in theoretical and cosmic physics. He had left unto the World his incredible work when he passed away at 76.
