Stephen Hawking passed away leaving behind a transformed view of the cosmos. He proved that time had a beginning if Einstein's general relativity is correct, that black ain't so black after all and he proposed that the Universe can be described by a quantum mechanical wave function with no edge or boundaries. From 1984 to 1988 I was one of Stephen's graduate students and worked on quantum cosmology and the arrow of time which earned me a quote in the book: "A Brief History of Time".
