Known as the modern-day successor to Albert Einstein, he proved that black holes aren’t immortal entities, but will actually slowly radiate heat – or matter – into the surrounding space until they disappear. Without his discovery, scientists wouldn’t have thought of powering our future colonies with black hole radiation energy. His contributions will not only be missed by the science community, but by all of humanity.
