Distinguished British physicist Stephen Hawking passed on earlier on this morning. He has died at the age of 76. The Physicist’s mental genius was unparalleled. Hawking has led a remarkable impact despite his physical disability caused by a form of motor neurone disease.
Moreover, his long life in spite of predictions of short life due to the condition made him a household name and inspiration across the globe.
In a press release from the deceased children, Stephen Hawking is hailed both as a great scientist as well as an extraordinary man whose legacy will live for long.
“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.”
