Within hours of the announcement, tributes were pouring in from around the globe - not just from scientists but also actors, musicians, charities and politicians.

Al Jean, an executive producer and writer on The Simpsons, honored Hawking's "sense of humor as vast as the universe", while Star Trek actor George Takei called him "a hero to so many".

As a scientist he earned comparisons with Albert Einstein and Isaac Newton.

He was the author of the seminal work A Brief History of Time, for example. I have noticed even people who claim everything is predestined, and that we can do nothing to change it, look before they cross the road.

The Stephen Hawking Medal, awarded to the most successful science communicators, will keep his legacy and continue to inspire science lovers in the name of Stephen Hawking.

But the interesting thing is how he found it. At the time, the monarch reportedly joked with Hawking, asking him if he's "still got that American voice".

Another TIFR physicist Sunil Mukhi recalled celebration of Hawking's 59th birthday in Mumbai when he also did a little gig, waltzing his wheelchair.

Hawking and the campaigners already won a major victory over Hunt. In 2014, the US spent 17.1% of its GDP on healthcare - without providing cover to all Americans. Instead, he says it rewards discovery.

The Nobel Prize cannot be awarded posthumously.

In a post on his Facebook page after the release of the production, the Professor himself praised Eddie's work.

Handled well, he believed it could allow people to live more cheaply and easily. "When the world 'Capricorn' came out of my mouth, I don't think I've ever felt so horrific in my life". Because one day there may well be proof of multiple universes. He visited the royal palace in Stockholm in August 2015.

Hawking was regarded as one of the most brilliant theoretical physicists in history. "You are the next generation of big thinkers and thought leaders that will shape the future for generations to come - SH", he wrote. "He was a warrior". Speech has allowed the communication of ideas, enabling human beings to work together to build the impossible. "Twenty percent live five years or more; up to ten percent will live more than ten years".

But it's much more rare than sporadic ALS, which accounts for over 90% of cases.

He narrated a segment of the opening ceremony of the London Paralympic Games in August 2012, the year he turned 70. Hawking was one of the world's best known and most highly-regarded scientists.

Stephen Hawking, whose brilliant mind ranged across time and space though his body was paralyzed by disease, died early Wednesday, a University of Cambridge spokesman said.

"Professor Hawking, it's an honor and privilege to meet you, sir", Sheldon, one of the geeky characters on "The Big Bang Theory", told him on one of the seven episodes he appeared in.

The couple split after 25 years and Hawking married his former nurse, Elaine Mason, but the union broke down amid allegations that he was being abused. He showed that the area of a black hole always increases with time.

An irritated Sir Fred asked how Hawking presumed to know that his calculations were wrong.

"His perseverance through his personal and professional experiences has served as a wonderful lesson of courage to those in times of adversity, and his work and life has changed our understanding of the world forever".
