Stephen Hawking, world-renowned scientist, dies at age 76

Stephen Hawking greatest quotes: 'Without imperfection, you or I would not exist'

"During that trip, Hawking spent 10 days giving many of us an opportunity to discuss 'physics' with him", said Sunil Mukhi, currently professor and chair of physics at the Indian Institute of Science Education and Research at Pune.

He added: "His place in history is assured, for his pioneering work on understanding black holes and the early universe, but I will remember him for his bravery, his wit, and the object lesson he delivered every day, that life is what you make it". He had recently been diagnosed with a degenerative disease, and it was thought that he might not survive long enough even to finish his PhD.

Eddie Redmayne has described physicist Stephen Hawking, who has passed away aged 76, as "a truly beautiful mind". His body was attacked by amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, or ALS, when he was 21, but he stunned doctors by living with the usually fatal illness for more than 50 years.

The videos below capture some of Hawking's most interesting ideas in theoretical physics and cosmology.

"My goal is simple".

Toope said that Hawking's "exceptional contributions to scientific knowledge and the popularization of science and mathematics have left an indelible legacy".

"The downside of my celebrity is that I cannot go anywhere in the world without being recognized", he told an Israeli journalist in 2006. "It was quite a boner". Hailed as one of the most brilliant theoretical physicists since Albert Einstein, Hawking never won a Nobel Prize.

However not everyone is expressing their condolences and mourning Hawking's death.

Dr. Hawking leaves behind three children from his marriage to Jane, as well as three grandchildren. But his mind and the "joy that he took in science" dominated. They first met in 1962 in St Albans in the UK, when they began to date. All he had to do was sit and wait for a visitor from the future, but sadly, no one showed up.

Once, Hawking got into an epic chess match with Paul Rudd. "Thank you for inspiring us and the world", the show's handle tweeted.

Scientists and famous figures around the world are paying tribute to Hawking. "May you keep flying like superman in microgravity, as you said to astronauts on in 2014". "Today we still yearn to know why we are here and where we came from. His perseverance and ability to see the lighter side of life in the face of all this was what made him so successful and gave him the great longevity that he had".

"He was asking and trying to address the very biggest questions we were trying to ask: the birth of the universe, black holes, the direction of time", said University of Chicago cosmologist Michael Turner.

"A loss for all humanity".

"Tragedy struck Stephen Hawking when he was only 22". Published in 1988, the title made the Guinness Book of Records after it stayed on the Sunday Times bestsellers list for 237 weeks.

'My original aim was to write a book that would sell on airport bookstalls, ' he told reporters at the time. - to ITV in 2017.

"You'd see it on people's coffee tables", Ingram says.

Hawking, it said, had always "wanted to advance the relationship between faith and scientific reason".
