Why he did not get a Nobel prize? Much lesser people got it.

Always been that way Tullio

Nikola Tesla found that out.

But knowing Nobel they will probably give Hawking one now or name one after him.

There has been lots of controversy over why astronomers don't get Nobels (although astrophysicists have done). There's a good paper on this topic at https://home.fnal.gov/~carrigan/nobel/Nobel_space.htm

There are some anecdotes trying to explain this, and the same for mathematicians (for whom there are definitely no Nobels) by claiming that Alfred Nobel's wife ran away with an astronomer/mathematician respectively. Amusing, but apparently Alfred Nobel wasn't married... Another nice reference is at http://mathforum.org/social/articles/ross.html.

Well, relativity never gained Einstein a Nobel prize, although he has merited at least five, in my opinion. It looks like that the Nobel Committee does not like theoretical physics. Alas, I shall never get a Nobel prize.

He will be given the honour of being interred in Westminster Abbey close to the graves of Isaac Newton and Charles Darwin.
