The man behind the hit animated series, which has aired almost 250 episodes, has died from amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) Stephen Hillenburg, the creator of SpongeBob SquarePants, has died at the age of 57. The animator, writer and director revealed he had amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), also known as motor neurone disease (MND), in March 2017. His best-known work was the Emmy-winning Nickelodeon show. Almost 250 episodes have aired. Nickelodeon said: “We are incredibly saddened by the news that Steve Hillenburg has passed away following a battle with ALS. He was a beloved friend and long-time creative partner to everyone at Nickelodeon, and our hearts go out to his entire family. “Steve imbued SpongeBob SquarePants with a unique sense of humor and innocence that has brought joy to generations of kids and families everywhere. His utterly original characters and the world of Bikini Bottom will long stand as a reminder of the value of optimism, friendship and the limitless power of imagination.” A former marine biology teacher, Hillenburg moved into television and worked on the show Rocko’s Modern Life. He created SpongeBob SquarePants, which originally aired in 1999, and it became a global hit, dubbed into more than 60 languages. Hillenburg also wrote, produced and directed 2004’s The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie, which made $140m worldwide. “I thought we’d get four seasons, but it’s still going,” he told the Guardian in 2016. I see SpongeBob on ice-cream trucks a lot and I’ve got bootleg SpongeBob merchandise from Mexico. In Egypt, they even wear hijabs with SpongeBob on them.” Earlier this year, he was honored with a special Emmy “for his contribution and impact made in the animation field and within the broadcast industry”. He is survived by his wife and son. https://www.theguardian.com/tv-and-radio/2018/nov/27/spongebob-squarepants-creator-stephen-hillenburg-dies-57
Physicist Stephen Hawking Has Died He outlived the predictions of doctors by decades. British physicist and cosmologist Stephen Hawking has died at the age of 76, his family has announced in a brief press statement. Hawking passed away peacefully in his home in Cambridge, England, in the early hours of Wednesday morning. "His family have kindly requested that they be given the time and privacy to mourn his passing, but they would like to thank everyone who has been by Professor Hawking's side—and supported him—throughout his life," the statement reads. “He was a great scientist and an extraordinary man whose work and legacy will live on for many years. His courage and persistence with his brilliance and humour inspired people across the world. He once said, ‘It would not be much of a universe if it wasn’t home to the people you love.’ We will miss him forever.” Hawking was diagnosed with motor neurone disease in 1963, and given two years to live by his doctors. Instead, he survived for more than half a century, authoring popular books like A Brief History of Time and The Universe in a Nutshell. For much of his life he was a professor at Cambridge University, and within the scientific community he is best known for his theories about black hole mechanics, gravitational collapse, and relativity. His brilliance has been compared to that of Albert Einstein and Isaac Newton. He is survived by three children and two ex-wives. https://www.vice.com/en_au/article/mb58zx/physicist-stephen-hawking-has-died?utm_campaign=global&utm_source=vicefbanz
