Renowned scientist Stephen Hawking dies at 76

Did you know Stephen Hawking was also a 'rock star'?

The Eddie Redmayne starrer The Theory of Everything went on to win Academy Awards and Golden Globe awards for the truthful and heartening portrayal of Stephen Hawking's life and relationships.

In Season 6 of the iconic show, Hawking portrayed his own holographic self and even beats Einstein in poker. "He's become an icon for a mind that is beyond ordinary mortals".

"[He] was held up as this sort of wunderkind of theoretical physics", he said.

"No ethics no morals no sympathy!" angrily tweeted one sports fan, who added that he hoped Neymar loses "all his money".

With Einstein, most people are familiar with e=mc2, but they don't know what it means.

Best known for his work on black holes, the cosmologist theorized that contrary to the prevailing scientific belief that black holes were inescapable for all forms of matter and energy, they actually emitted a form of radiation - now known as Hawking radiation.

Stephen Hawking is thought to be one of the most gifted scientists of his generation.

Unsurprisingly, many took issue with Neymar comparing his foot injury to a major neurodegenerative disease, and for seemingly making Hawking's passing all about himself. "He, and not George Gamow, is the father of Big Bang", Hawking said.

One of Hawking's most famous quotes was made to CNN in 2010 saying, "God may exist, but science can explain the universe without the need for a creator". It always got a big laugh. "I've been to talks Hawking has given and can not follow them myself".

Hawking was born in Oxford, England, and enrolled at Oxford University at age 17. Cumberbatch's portrayal of Hawking was the first ever portrayal of the physicist on the big screen. As we pray for all those who mourn him, may he rest in peace. Hawking made physics cool.

His work has shaped the scientific consensus for decades, beginning by examining the singularity theorem, the theory of relativity and black holes, and formulating the theories about the universe itself.

It was inspired by a young Reno man, who was on life support and only able to communicate by blinking.

The idea behind this was also novel because it said "black holes aren't forever", Turner said. Stephen Hawking is widely credited for theorizing a particle that defies gravity and radiates from black holes.

Both of those concepts are cornerstones of current black hole theory. Undeterred and facing the prospect of an early death, Hawking went on to Cambridge to become a brilliant researcher and Professorial Fellow at Gonville and Caius College where his tenacity and reluctance to give in to his condition, spurred him on toward many intellectual breakthroughs.
