Genius of our time unlocked secrets of the universe

Stephen Hawking's A Brief History of Time: How an unlikely book became a mainstream bestseller

He was 76 years old.

Hawking, world famous Cambridge University physicist, died early Wednesday at his home in Cambridge, England. Hawking's family released a statement today saying, "His courage and persistence with his brilliance and humor inspired people across the world".

"At the time, I thought my life was over and that I would never realise the potential I felt I had".

Having dedicated his life to unlocking the secrets of the universe, Prof Hawking stated his greatest wish was for a cure for MND to be found.

As reported by Al Jazeera News, Hawking's decision was widely celebrated by Palestinian activists and academics.

For Hawking, the search was almost a religious quest - he said finding a "theory of everything" would allow mankind to "know the mind of God".

In later years, though, he suggested a unified theory might not exist.

This quote was given to the New York Times of December 12, 2004. But it's not empty.

The actor who played Stephen Hawking in a film about the scientist's life has described him as the funniest man he ever met.

The "Hawking radiation" claim created a big discussion in the science world.

These views aren't mutually exclusive. OR even still, maybe time travelers from thousands of years in the future have better things to do than go to a party in 2009. He was so moved that he used Hawking's words and his electronic voice for the track Keep talking that was a part of the band's album, Division Bell.

As mentioned in The Guardian, Hawking was diagnosed with a terminal disease known as ALS or amyotrophic lateral sclerosis when he was 21.

He was also a vocal champion of the NHS, and until his final months sparred with Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt. "They have craved an understanding of the underlying order in the world", he says in the book. It was just different. "Instead, he continued to approach his stance on religion with scientific evidence-based reasoning".

The disease that crippled Stephen Hawking is quite rare. He survives after an operation, but loses what remained of his speech.

"Black holes ain't as black as they are painted". Instead, he said he believed objects could be spit out of black holes in a mangled form. There is no shying away from the inexorable losses that come with a disease like MND, and the physical and emotional challenges that each loss can bring.

Hawking warned scientists and global governments needed to focus on maximising benefits for society rather than pure capability. "It is not necessary to invoke God to light the blue touch paper and set the universe going".

Bantam published A Brief History of Time in March 1988. "It is very, very difficult to observe the things I have worked on".

"However difficult life may seem, there is always something you can do and succeed at". His laboratory was in the mind, his scientific equipment was mathematics.

1989 - Made a Companion of Honor by Queen Elizabeth II. "So if you feel you are in a black hole, don't give up - there's a way out".

Professor Hawking, thank you very much for all the hard work you put into your studies.

He told the BBC: "He's been an incredible exemplar of there being no boundary to human endeavour".

"From his wheelchair, he's led us on a journey to the farthest and strangest reaches of the cosmos".
