Renowned physicist Stephen W. Hawking dies at age 76

Stephen Hawking lived for over 50 years with ALS

Said one user: "The deterioration of his body did not trap him. This is partly because scientists, apart from Einstein, are not widely known rock stars, and partly because I fit the stereotype of a disabled genius".

World renowned scientist Stephen Hawking with his wife and nurse Elaine Mason after their marriage ceremony at Cambridge registry office.

A vocal advocate of the rights of people with physical disabilities, Hawking showed the world that people can live full lives despite having severe physical ailments.

Recently, there was the increasing sense that he was being exploited by the media for his brilliant reputation, and, let's be honest, for his heart-tugging appearance in photographs. I will never forget meeting him - he was funny and engaging.

"For millions of years, mankind lived just like the animals". And yet, he carried on relentlessly. He only came to that conclusion when he tried to prove a young student, Jacob Bekenstein, who had initially made the suggestion, wrong.

"That ability has enabled him to see the solutions to deep physics problems that nobody else could solve, and that he probably would not have been able to solve himself without his new-found skill".

Stephen Hawking arrives to attend the launch of The Leverhulme Centre for the Future of Intelligence (CFI), at the University of Cambridge. Dr. Abhilash H. N., Post Doctoral fellow and research associate, adds, "His life itself was a drawing force". Thus equipped, he pointed out with satisfaction, "I have sold more books on physics than Madonna has on sex". "I felt it was very unfair - why should this happen to me".

This is also a book about God. or perhaps about the absence of God. "With this system", he cheerfully noted, "I can communicate better now than before I lost my voice". "It shows that one need not lose hope", he wrote.

He was frail and weak. Over the years, Hawking reeled off quips about sex, mortality and Homer Simpson's Doughnut Shaped Universe Theory.

An Ivy League graduate and former investment advisor, Bob is a regular contributor to The New American magazine and blogs frequently at LightFromTheRight.com, primarily on economics and politics. He has also been married twice and has three children.

Known the world over for his acclaimed book "A Brief History of Time: From the Big Bang to Black Holes", Hawking was diagnosed with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) - a progressive neuro-degenerative disease - in 1963 at age 21, The Guardian newspaper said.

In a statement, his children Lucy, Robert and Tim said: "We are deeply saddened that our beloved father passed away today". Hawking held Newton in high regard, and was even appointed to Newton's old position as the Lucasian chair of mathematics at Cambridge. Then something happened which unleashed the power of our imagination. His memoir is called My Brief History.

He was definitely the most popular scientist after Einstein. The phenomenon was named Hawking radiation. In 2015, British actor Eddie Redmayne won an Oscar for portraying Hawking in the biographical drama "The Theory of Everything".

He was my inspiration! .

According to John Boslough, author of "Stephen Hawking's Universe", Hawking became deeply depressed.

Outside of The Theory of Everything, Hawking was also portrayed by Benedict Cumberbatch in the BBC television movie Hawking in 2004.
