Rex Tillerson, the Secretary of State, is the next one of Trump’s cabinet members to be shown the door. As Secretary of State, Tillerson’s main duties consisted of directing American foreign policy and managing relations with foreign states. Many are questioning the wisdom of replacing the top diplomatic executive in the government shortly before Trump’s meeting with Kim Jong Un, an incredibly important meeting that could prove to be volatile.

Additionally, Stephen Hawking, renowned British physicist and mathematician, died in his sleep in his Cambridge home last night. He was 76 years old. When he was only 22, medical specialists estimated his lifespan to be no more than a few years, following the diagnosis of a rare degenerative motor disorder. He ended up living a long and exceptionally accomplished life. He will be missed by fellow physicists and laymen the world over.

Today is the birthday of scientist and mathematician Albert Einstein! While you probably know him as the guy who developed the formula E=mc2, Einstein’s theories of relativity also helped pave the way for quantum theory and the atomic bomb. The public was not quick to accept Einstein’s revolutionary discoveries, but today he is highly esteemed. He won the Nobel Prize in physics in 1921, and passed away in 1955.
