And yet he still cared about the public, and making sure they "got" it, how amazing and truly understandable such work could be.

Clinton extended his "thoughts and prayers" to Hawking's family and admirers.

He said he remembered attending lectures from the man who inspired his choice to go into the field of cosmology.

"Hawking was the greatest scientist of our age".

And partly, for Christians in particular, it was because he was tantalisingly vague about religion.

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". The extraterrestrials would probably be far in advance of us.

"The scientific account is complete". But we can understand the Universe. Is Science incompatible with religion?

During his 2001 visit, the wheelchair-bound Hawking paid a visit to historic monuments, including Jantar Mantar and Qutab Minar, and called on the then President KR Narayanan at Rashtrapati Bhavan, telling him: "Indians are so good at mathematics and physics". He campaigned for the disabled.

This contrasted with his 2010 book The Great Design, in which he said that the idea of God was "not necessary" to explain the origin of the universe as the laws of physics offer enough of an explanation. Instead, he says it rewards discovery. Hawking used a speech synthesizer that allowed him to speak in a computerized voice with an American accent. But Einstein didn't get the Nobel for his famed theory of general relativity.

Up until last year, there was only one FDA-approved drug for ALS, extending survival by several months. "There is no heaven or afterlife for broken down computers; that is a fairy story for people afraid of the dark", he added.

"This was the most powerful piece of television advertising that I've ever seen in my life", Gilmour said soon after The Division Bell's release.

The late scientist, who died at the age of 76, was diagnosed with motor neurone disease (MND) when he was 21 years old and was given just a few years to live. "He was a warrior". As his condition worsened, he had to resort to speaking through a voice synthesiser and communicating by moving his eyebrows. First published in 1988, the book entered the Guinness Book of Records after it stayed on the Sunday Times bestsellers list for 237 weeks. "Condolences to the family", tweeted actor-producer Farhan Akhtar.

"We have lost an amazing human being", Lawrence Krauss, a theoretical physicist and cosmologist, wrote on Twitter.

The British actor played the mathematical genius across decades of physical degeneration - all under Hawking's watchful gaze.

If you want a lesson in how not to handle the death of an intellectual who helped society, but happened to disagree with you, then look no further.

The vice chancellor of the University of Cambridge is praising Stephen Hawking as an inspiration to millions.

"I think he's done more than anyone else", said Prof Paul Shellard, who was a student of Prof Hawking.

On Wednesday morning, "Stephen Hawking" was trending worldwide on social media.
