Stephen Hawking has passed away at age 76

His children gave this statement

Stephen's curious mind led him to begin studying physics at Oxford University

Where he flourished despite finding his academic work 'ridiculously easy'

He met Jane Wilde, and married at the age of 23

He soon became a father of three, but by then his health has already started to deteriorate

Doctors diagnosed him with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) when he was only 21 and gave Stephen only 2 years to live

Devastating news was quickly followed by paralysis and speech impairment that left him nearly mute

He was on home care until he partnered with 'Words Plus' who helped to engineer his iconic wheelchair and soundbox

Despite the grim prognosis Stephen managed to finish his thesis which has become a groundbreaking study of Black Holes

He later went on to discover that black holes actually emit radiation

Known today as Hawking radiation

Before moving into the study of quantum gravity and quantum mechanics

Writing several bestselling books on the complex subject of physics, and making the science much more accessible to the average person

Throughout his life, Stephen has received countless awards including the Order of the Companions of Honour from the Queen

And a Presidential Medal Of Freedom by U.S. president Barrack Obama, to name a few

He has been hosted by people like Nelson Mandela

Queen Elizabeth

And became a pop culture icon

Lately, a fully fledged biopic movie was filmed which went on to win an Oscar

Stephen died due to complications from his illness on 14th March, which is, coincidentally, also Pi Day and Albert Einstein's birthday

His life touched many others' and left a footprint on the scientific community as big as only a few have ever managed before

The internet was flooded with tributes to Stephen
