Hi, I'm Hayley.

0:00:050:00:06

On Newsround in the

next few minutes...

0:00:060:00:09

You tell us your memories

of Professor Stephen Hawking.

0:00:090:00:13

Can you guess what this

is on display in Leicester?

0:00:130:00:21

First, one of the world's

most famous scientists,

0:00:280:00:30

Professor Stephen Hawking, has died.

0:00:300:00:34

Ricky's been looking back

at his incredible life.

0:00:340:00:38

Stephen Hawking was passionate

about science and the sky -

0:00:380:00:40

even as a child.

0:00:400:00:43

He went on to become one of the most

famous scientists of all time,

0:00:430:00:47

after studying physics at Oxford

University.

0:00:470:00:51

When he was 21, he was told he had

motor neurone disease.

0:00:510:00:54

It meant he had to use

a wheelchair and had to talk

0:00:540:00:57

through a special computer.

0:00:570:01:00

But he lived for 50 years longer

than doctors expected and went

0:01:000:01:03

on to develop amazing theories that

changed the way the world thinks

0:01:030:01:07

about space, stars and the universe.

0:01:070:01:13

I do not have much positive to say

about motor neurone disease, but it

0:01:130:01:16

taught me not to pity myself and to

get on with what I still could do.

0:01:160:01:22

I am happier now than before

I developed the condition.

0:01:220:01:28

His most famous book,

A Brief History of Time, sold more

0:01:280:01:31

than 10 million copies

around the world.

0:01:310:01:35

A film was made about his life

in 2014, and the actor

0:01:350:01:38

who played him, Eddie Redmayne,

won an Oscar for his performance.

0:01:380:01:43

Professor Hawking even

appeared in The Simpsons.

0:01:430:01:48

His family say he was a great

scientist who was brilliant,

0:01:480:01:51

very funny and inspired people

across the world.

0:01:510:01:55

He was 76.

0:01:550:01:59

We've been asking you what you

thought about Professor Hawking.

0:01:590:02:02

Let's start with Luke,

who uses a voice computer,

0:02:020:02:05

like the famous scientist.

0:02:050:02:09

He was humble and a genius.

0:02:090:02:10

He was inspiring.

0:02:100:02:11

Even though he was in a wheelchair

and couldn't communicate

0:02:110:02:14

verbally, he still achieved great

things and had a great mind.

0:02:140:02:18

I think meeting

Stephen Hawking was a

0:02:180:02:21

completely incredible experience.

0:02:210:02:24

Sitting right next to him,

chatting about cosmology

0:02:240:02:27

when I was 13 or 14,

was really amazing.

0:02:270:02:35

He was a great and inspiration,

especially after being told he

0:02:460:02:49

bitterly lifted 24.

0:02:490:02:51

Now, you'll be used to seeing sights

like this in the night sky.

0:02:510:02:54

But what if I told you,

you could see the moon close up,

0:02:540:02:57

inside a building in Leicester?!

0:02:570:02:58

Intrigued?

0:02:580:02:59

Confused?

0:02:590:03:00

Me too.

0:03:000:03:01

Luckily Ayshah is here

to explain more.

0:03:010:03:03

It's not a sight you see

everyday in a cathedral.

0:03:030:03:05

A huge replica of the moon

hanging from the ceiling.

0:03:050:03:08

But it's here at Leicester

Cathedral this week to mark

0:03:080:03:10

British Science Week.

0:03:100:03:12

These schoolchildren from Leicester

have been to check it out.

0:03:120:03:15

We have been looking at the moon,

which is incredible.

0:03:150:03:18

It is really nice how...it is just

an incredible thing to look at.

0:03:180:03:23

I like looking at the moon

because it is really big and it has

0:03:230:03:26

got loads of craters.

0:03:260:03:30

It looks like it would be really

hard to climb them all.

0:03:300:03:33

I didn't actually know

that there was...

0:03:330:03:35

It is bigger than I expected.

0:03:350:03:37

We have been lying under the moon,

trying to find the smallest crater,

0:03:370:03:42

and that is the size of Leicester.

0:03:420:03:45

I find it enjoyable

to learn about science.

0:03:450:03:47

The moon was made by an artist

in the UK called Luke Jerram.

0:03:470:03:51

It's seven metres wide,

and he studied Nasa images

0:03:510:03:53

of the moon's surface in detail

to help him make the replica.

0:03:530:03:58

Suzie is a scientist and is running

activities for children.

0:03:580:04:02

She wants more people

to get into science.

0:04:020:04:05

I am here today because

I love space science.

0:04:050:04:07

My advice to anyone out there

who is interested in science is to

0:04:070:04:10

study hard at school, but also do

lots of other activities in

0:04:100:04:13

your spare time.

0:04:130:04:14

And who knows?

0:04:140:04:15

One of you watching

could be the next

0:04:150:04:17

person that goes to the moon

or even on to Mars.

0:04:170:04:23

The moon is in Leicester

until the end of the week, before it

0:04:230:04:26

continues on its world tour.

0:04:260:04:29

Its next stop, the Commonwealth

Games in Australia!

0:04:290:04:35
