"We believe 100% that the Big Bang happened and this was was the mathematical proof that this happened", said Professor Richard Batty, professor of cosmology and associate director (science) at Jodrell Bank Observatory in Cheshire.

"Professor Stephen Hawking was a brilliant man and a mediocre student", then-President Barack Obama said to a round of laughter, "when he lost his balance and tumbled down a flight of stairs".

Though Hawking at that time looked normal from the outside, he may not be quite so internally, Narlikar said, adding, "It is quite commendable that although his body was not functioning properly, he did some wonderful work for science".

Some of his early work was linked to Einstein's theory of general relativity, which takes space and time and squashes them together to make what we call a spacetime. "Indeed, they have helped me in a way".

Stephen Hawking, renowned theoretical physicist and author of "A Brief History of Time", has died at age 76.

"I am very saddened to hear of Stephen Hawking's passing".

His discoveries have shaped thinking in fundamental physics for the last few decades and will do so for a few decades more.

It seems the feeling was mutual. He will be greatly missed! Titled The Hawking Excitation, the episode featured Sheldon (Jim Parsons) yearning to finally meet his ultimate hero. He is considered to be one of the most influential scientists of the twenty first century. As his physical worsened, he had to resort to speaking through a voice synthesizer and communicating through small gestures.

Prof Hawking came up with mathematical proof for the Big Bang theory, together with colleague Roger Penrose.

He released 'A Brief History of Time' in 1988, a book that explained the fundamentals of physics and human existence.

'He became one of the most famous scientists in the world'.

Hawking was a supporter of a number of liberal causes. Despite suffering from amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), a disease that left him paralyzed in his twenties, the astrophysicist traveled the world, spoke at conferences, and served as a chief representative for science in popular culture, appearing in shows like The Simpsons, Star Trek: The Next Generation and Futurama, not to mention having his life story dramatized in the 2014 film The Theory of Everything. When I met Stephen, it was this astounding moment with this man who'd become an idol in my mind. "My love and thoughts are with his extraordinary family", the 36-year-old said.

Hawking never considered ending his life or felt that others should feel sorry for him. His second marriage to his nurse, Elaine Mason, ended in 2006 and was subject to tabloid headlines at the time.

On his website, he wrote, "I try to lead as normal a life as possible, and not think about my condition, or regret the things it prevents me from doing, which are not that many". He also got married, had three children and had a movie made about him.
