The Greatest Minds Ever To Live Stephen Hawking Dies Age 76
The Cambridge professor was known not just for the brilliance of his mind but the simplicity with which he communicated some of the universe’s most profound mysteries. Stephen Hawking, the British physicist and black-hole theorist who brought science to a mass audience with the best-selling book “A Brief History of Time,”
He followed up “A Brief History of Time” in 2001 with the more accessible sequel “The Universe in a Nutshell,” updating readers on concepts like super gravity, naked singularities and the possibility of an 11-dimensional universe.
Hawking died peacefully at his home in Cambridge in England in the early hours of Wednesday morning, a spokesman for his family said in an emailed statement.
“He was a great scientist and an extraordinary man whose work and legacy will live on for many years,” his children Lucy, Robert and Tim said in a statement. “He was a great scientist and an extraordinary man whose work and legacy will live on for many years. His courage and persistence with his brilliance and humour inspired people across the world. He once said, ‘It would not be much of a universe if it wasn’t home to the people you love.‘ We will miss him forever.”
Is similarly astonishing that he had a vocation by any means. As a graduate understudy in 1963, he learned he had amyotrophic horizontal sclerosis, a neuromuscular squandering infection otherwise called Lou Gehrig’s sickness. He was given just a couple of years to live.

He went ahead to end up his age’s pioneer in investigating gravity and the properties of dark openings, the endless gravitational pits so profound and thick that not in any case light can escape them.
His own spirit left many in awe.
