Stephen Hawking, the renowned physicist who developed “the theory of everything” has died. He was 76.”He once said, ‘It would not be much of a universe if it wasn’t home to the people you love.’ We will miss him forever,” his children Lucy, Robert and Tim told the BBC. Hawking had been confined to a wheelchair since his early 20s after being diagnosed with a rare form of motor neurone disease. It forced him to speak mostly through a voice synthesizer, a move that became iconic in pop culture and more.
His most famous book, A Brief History of Time has sold over 10 million copies.
