World leaders have also paid tribute, including Indian President Ram Nath Kovind, who said Mr Hawking's courage and resilience would continue to inspire for generations. The shadow of death hanging over him since 1963 did nothing to dull his quest for the truth behind big black holes. Now we might have the means of investigating and understanding in more detail some of the concepts that Stephen came up with.

But he continued his scientific work, appeared on television and married for a second time.

Scientist Bikash Sinha was an undergraduate student at Cambridge University when Stephen Hawking discovered the Hawking radiation on the same campus.

In 2014, Hawking released a paper titled Information Preservation and Weather Forecasting for Black Holes in which he surprised the astrophysics community by suggesting black holes weren't so black after all.

Published for the first time in 1988, "A Brief History of Time" stayed on the Sunday Times bestsellers list for an unprecedented 237 weeks.

Without mentioning Cain, Republican Texas state Rep. Jeff Leach took to Twitter to call out fellow Christians making "hateful and snarky" comments about Hawking's death. "But it bothers me". Hawking was able to communicate with others using a speech synthesizer, which was given to him in the 80's after he lost his ability to speak.

Some colleagues credited that celebrity with generating new enthusiasm for science. "Whether you aim to be a doctor, teacher, scientist, musician, engineer, or a writer, be fearless in the pursuit of your aspirations". Most of Hawking's life was spent in a wheelchair, crippled by amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), a form of motor neuron disease. Hawking is attempting, as he explicitly states, to understand the mind of God.

Professor Duffy said Professor Hawking's illness made his achievements "near-superhuman".

Hawking had a few groundbreaking ideas about black holes.

"It really put a damper on my life".

Horowitz said the find helped move scientists one step closer to cracking the unified theory. Cheng says that Stephen Hawking's "A Brief History of Time" became a "window" into the father she never got to know. He was later director of research in the university's Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics. What is the meaning of life? "Don't be disabled in spirit as well as physically". In 1974, Hawking proposed what is known as his most significant theory that black holes can emit sub-atomic particles.

Hawking was born Jan. 8, 1942, in Oxford, and grew up in London and St. Albans, northwest of the capital.

Senior software engineer Joe Osborne said he soon realized the impact SwiftKey's natural language and artificial intelligence technology could have on Hawking's communication. Hawking died peacefully at his home in the British university city of Cambridge in the early hours of Wednesday. It's a unique coincidence to note that Stephen Hawking passed away on Albert Einstein's birthday. With stiff upper lip, he defied those odds. Hawking embarks on a quest to answer Einstein's famous question about whether God had any choice in creating the universe.

"He showed his sheer determination, coming into work every day, which he was doing until very recently and he identified what he could do well and he didn't dwell on what he couldn't do", Professor Shard said. He cannot be exploited anymore or captured by the lures of trendy, shallow intellectual improvisation. He lived with the diagnosis for more than 50 years.

My condolences to his family.
