The author of A Brief History of Time and the man many experts consider to be the top theoretical physicist in history,is doing okay now as sources spoke to Telegraph and ComputerWorld.

Stephen Hawking is comfortable,He’s spending the night in the hospital. He has been suffering from a chest infection for the last several weeks.

said a spokesman for the university. The news was so shocking to the whole world that people crushed onto StephenHawking’s website and so the server had to be taken offline. Now they have this message if you visit the place saying,

Professor Hawking is comfortable, but will be spending the night in hospital. The Cambridge University Press Office have a statement to this effect, and do not expect to have any further updates until mid-morning tomorrow.

Prof Hawking, who hold the post of Lucasian Professor of Mathematics, a chair once occupied by a Sir Isaac Newton, famously tried to put answers to complex questions for common men in his book, A brief history of time,  which was on the British Sunday Times bestseller list for 237 weeks, was first published in 1988.

We hope there is nothing serious with that great man as he has much more to share with us.
