The Famous Physicist and author of ‘A Brief History of Time’ has died at the age of 76 at his home in Cambridge, England.
The British scientist Stephen Hawking was famous for his work he has done with black holes and relativity. He also wrote several renowned books including ‘The Grand Design’, ‘The Universe in a Nutshell’, ‘Black Holes and Baby Universes’, ‘My Brief History’, the most famous ‘A Brief History of Time’ and many more.
His family released the news of his peaceful death at home in Cambridge. Hawking’s children Lucy, Robert and Tim Hawking announced his death and said “We are deeply saddened that our beloved father passed away today. He was a great scientist and an extraordinary man whose work and legacy will live on for many years”.
He was analyzed with the degenerative nerve ailment Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), just at the age of 21. His disease left him in a wheelchair, and later on he was unable to speak except through voice synthesizer.
He had also exposed secrets of black holes leak energy and fade to nothing – such a phenomenon that would later turn out to be Hawking radiation.
He spoke also of death, “I’m not afraid of death, but I’m in no hurry to die, I have so much I want to do first”. Although he was suffering from a disease but even then he achieved and discovered much more, he is truly a great inspiration for us all.
