Stephen Hawking dead at the age of 76

Stephen Hawking dead at the age of 76

The Nobel Foundation excludes posthumous nominees.

Many experts said Professor Hawking defied medical science by reaching his 70s with such a debilitating condition.

Hawking's father, Frank, was a doctor of tropical medicine. He had two younger sisters and a brother.

As our world became less suitable for life over the next century, Professor Hawking would warn in a new documentary that future generations must forge a new existence in space.

But the power of his intellect contrasted cruelly with the weakness of his body, ravaged by the wasting motor neurone disease he contracted at the age of 21.

Hawking was limited physically by early onset Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis.

In 1970, Hawking realised the mathematical approaches he developed with Penrose could be applied to black holes, a term coined by physicist John Wheeler.

In 1979 he was appointed Lucasian Professor of Mathematics at Cambridge University, where he had moved from Oxford University to study theoretical astronomy and cosmology.

US President Barack Obama awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom to Hawking in 2009, the year of his retirement. He also authored many books on the subjects, including the best-seller "A Brief History of Time". The couple split after 25 years and he married his former nurse, Elaine Mason, but the union broke down amid allegations, denied by him, of abuse.

We were on earth at the same time as Stephen Hawking.

The love story between Hawking and Wilde was retold in the 2014 film "The Theory of Everything", which won Britain's Eddie Redmayne the best actor Oscar for his portrayal of the scientist.

"We are running out of space, and the only place we can go to are other worlds", he told a gathering of scientists.
