World Remembers Stephen Hawking

March 14, 2018 - 12:05 pm

CAMBRIDGE (1010 WINS) -- Theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking died at his home in Cambridge, England on Wednesday, at the age of 76.

Hawking lived almost his entire life with disability after he was diagnosed with Lou Gehrig's Disease -- ALS -- at age 21.

Hawking wrote of the mysteries of space, time, black holes, and the big bang theory. Though paralyzed and unable to speak, he used a computer to communicate.

The 2014 movie, 'The Theory Of Everything' was based on his life.

Hawking will be remembered as a genius who did not let his disease stop him.

"I have had ALS for practically all of my adult life, yet it has not prevented me from having a very attractive family, and being successful in my work," he once said.

Hawking has been compared to Albert Einstein and Isaac Newton. His best selling book 'A Brief History Of Time' tackles black holes and the big bang theory, subjects he spent his entire life exploring.
