Yes I'd realised it was posthumous, I'd read in another thread here that he hadn't made a significant contribution (whatever that means) for a long time, and what with him becoming a celebrity I just thought he had stopped researching, it was good to see he hadn't.

From my understanding, his ALS was progressing to the point where communication with his grad students became extremely difficult and this is what slowed down his research pace.
