# Stephen Hawking died on a day that is cosmically connected to Albert Einstein and Pi

Coincidentally, Hawking died on Albert Einstein's birthday. Einstein, a venerated theoretical physicist from an earlier era, also passed away at age 76.

March 14 is also celebrated as Pi Day in the US, in honor of the mathematical constant that whose first digits are 3.14.------
