Stephen Hawking joins new effort to find life in space
Futuristic plan which swarm of small spacecraft explained on ‘America’s Newsroom’
In what can be considered an amazing coincidence, that famous theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking, who died on Pi Day, March 14, the day each year when the scientists and mathematicians to celebrate the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter.
March 14 also marks the birthday of Albert Einstein, who would have been 139 this year.

“Albert Einstein” was born on March 14,
“Stephen Hawking” died today, March 14,
“Pi Day” on March 14,
“Time is relative”

Almost immediately after the news broke Wednesday morning about Hawking’s death, people on social media were making the connection to the Pi-Day and Einstein. Some speculated that Hawking may have planned coincidence.
Stephen Hawking as died on Pi Day.
Best day for him to go.

Either way, Pi Day is now synonymous with the leading theoretical physicists in the entire history.
Others noted that Hawking’s birthday, Jan. 8, on the same day that the famous scientist Galileo died at age 77 in 1642.
It seems almost like he planned it, of Stephen Hawking, who died on Pi day, the day that Albert Einstein was born…3.14. #PiDay2018 #stephenhawking pic.twitter.com/wpM9L0cJMP

This year we celebrate the 30th anniversary of Pi Day, which was founded in 1988 at a party that physicist Larry Shaw organized.
Shaw said he chose March 14, because 3.14 are the first three digits of pi, denoted by the Greek letter π.”

In 2009, Congress officially recognized Pi Day, inspiring the pun of “pie” partying with the people, even dressing up as Einstein, the Time reported.
This year, NASA held a “Pi in the Sky” challenge to solve interplanetary mathematical problems, while the Exploratorium in San Francisco, where Shaw will host the first Pi Day celebration, an annual day of the pi-inspired activities, the report said.
