Physicist Stephen Hawking dies at 76

The Simpson's executive producer Matt Selman paid homage to Hawking's cameos on the show over the years, of which he made 12. "Think of it as a kind of vacuum energy permeating the fabric of spacetime that defies measure", the scientist said.

'His contributions to science will be used as long as there are scientists, and there are many more scientists because of him.

After being diagnosed with ALS at 22, Hawking was given only a few more years to live. "RIP Stephen Hawking", tweeted American astronaut Scott Kelly. "This was Stephen Hawking". He had been suffering from amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), or Charcot's disease, since he was 21 years old, a neurodegenerative pathology leading to a gradual loss of mobility.

"My advice to any heartbroken young girl is to pay close attention to the study of theoretical physics". You clearly have a brilliant mind", before flooring him, literally, with "You made an arithmetic mistake on page two. Hawking replied with humour, saying: "Yes, it is copyrighted actually".

His life's work centred on linking together the apparently irreconcilable laws of general relativity and quantum mechanics.

In the wide-ranging interview filmed last fall in Cambridge, Tyson and Hawking discuss everything from Hawking's favorite food (oysters), drink (Pimms) and equation (the entropy of a black hole to the area of its horizon: S = A over 4), to whether time travel may be possible and the manmade threats that may make colonization of a new planet a necessity. The physicist also celebrated his 59th birthday at the Oberoi Towers hotel where he stayed.

Hawking has often been compared to Albert Einstein, who did win a Nobel Prize. "Hawking would enter the classroom with his lectures prepared". "It takes him a while to speak, so there were lots of pauses and silences".

"My original aim was to write a book that would sell on airport bookstalls", he told reporters at the time". He visited the royal palace in Stockholm in August 2015. I feel so lucky to have known such a truly great man who's profundity was found both in his work and the communication of that work. "He was a warrior". "This was around the time when the Hawking-Penrose work on black holes was being carried out in 1984-85", says Raychaudhury.

Stephen Hawking's star shone the brightest and not just for a 'brief history in time'. In September 2016 Hawking joined 375 "concerned" scientists in penning an open letter criticizing then-presidential candidate Donald Trump, citing the threat of climate change and blasting his push for the US to leave the Paris Accord. "His courage and persistence with his brilliance and humor inspired people across the world".

"I was hoping a future Miss Universe was going to step through the door".

Prof Wands, 51, said: 'He is a huge inspiration to everyone in the science community and to me.

Pope Benedict XVI greets British professor Stephen Hawking during a meeting of science academics at the Vatican, on October 31, 2008. Jim Al-Khalili, a theoretical physicist from Surrey University told the BBC.

In a statement, his children Lucy, Robert and Tim said: "We are deeply saddened that our beloved father passed away today".

In 1988, Hawking published his book titled A Brief History of Time, in which he explains the idea behind cosmology, black holes, and the big bang.
