As you may have heard, Stephen Hawking has been rushed to the hospital after falling very ill. He has been struggling with a chest infection for several weeks, and has had to cancel some public appearances. A press officer from Cambridge University later added that he has improved, and is now in comfortable condition. Not much to add, except that we all hope for a speedy recovery, and that is back writing papers and giving lectures before too long. Update: Associated Press, reporting from another statement released by Cambridge, says Hawking is expected to make a complete recovery.
