Meanwhile, Lord Rees - who holds the most prestigious post in astronomy in the United Kingdom - recalled meeting Prof Hawking at Cambridge University in 1964, describing him as "unsteady on his feet and speaking with great difficulty" following his diagnosis with the degenerative disease. His courage and persistence with his brilliance and humour inspired people across the world. He is one the greatest man, we ever had, who believed nothing can stop you from doing what you love to do even when you are physically disabled or not. "We will miss him forever", his children, Lucy, Robert and Tim saidin a statement.
Hawking was born on January 8, 1942, in Oxford, England. As his condition worsened, he had to resort to speaking through a voice synthesiser and communicating by moving his eyebrows. But he continued his theoretical work and was outspoken on many things over much of his life. "It was a huge privilege to waste some of his time, and I'll never forget the twinkle in his eye here".
"And by that I mean that I think there are physicists in a thousand years' time, they will still be talking about Hawking radiation, they will be using his fundamental results on black holes".
The MND Association, based in the United Kingdom, said it had so many visitors to its site following the death of the renowned physicist at the age of 76, that its servers could not cope. "There's no one who compares to him", said Larry McCloskey, director of the Paul Menton Centre for Students with Disabilities at Carleton University.
But he was much more than a skilled cosmologist. It remained at the top of the publishing charts for 5 years and sales hit 10 million copies. This is the true strength of his legacy. I should explain that a black hole is an object that no information can leave - even light because it attracts all quanta back. Hence his support for Breakthrough Listen, the search for alien life in the Universe.
Hawking was also known for his sense of humour and became a cultural icon, appearing on TV shows like The Big Bang Theory, The Simpsons and Star Trek: The Next Generation. Hawking made physics cool.
The college, where Professor Hawking spent 52 of his 76 years, has opened a book of condolences which has been signed by well over 1,000 people already.
From A Brief History of Time (1988): Hawking later said he had used the word "God" figuratively and was in fact an atheist.
