Strictly's Debbie McGee gets Professor Stephen Hawking and Albert Einstein mixed up

English theoretical physicist and cosmologist Stephen Hawking whose scientific books and public appearances have made him an academic icon

Hawking had been living with this disease since 1963, though it never stopped him from becoming known as one of the most brilliant minds on the planet.

Hawking has often been compared to Albert Einstein, who did win a Nobel Prize. Above and beyond the great research he did, his impact as a communicator was fantastic.

People everywhere are mourning the death of physicist Stephen Hawking, who died on March 14 at the age of 76.

From the age of 21 when Hawking learned of his illness, doctors predicted his maximum life expectancy was an additional few years. "He would tell jokes when he came to our table reads, which he did several times", showrunner Al Jean told the Hollywood Reporter. Prof Hawking had earlier planned to express his opinion about the peace settlement at this gathering and had hoped to lecture in the occupied West Bank. Hawking made physics cool.

Professor Stephen Hawking had a motor neurone disease practically his entire adult life but it did not stop him from having an attractive family and being successful in his work.

"Remember to look up at the stars and not down at your feet".

"He has inspired a whole generation with his ability to present complex science in a popular way". To this, the professor replied, "Yes, and also a universe where you are amusing".

Hawking himself found recognition from the Catholic Church, being named a member of the Pontifical Academy of Sciences. "Work gives you meaning and goal, and life is empty without it", Hawking reminded them at the time. The problem is even more pronounced in the Philippines where we have a president who forces me to mute the TV every time he opens his mouth and my kids are around. The 26-year-old has been out of action with an ankle ligament injury and has been forced to wear a protective boot in his recovery.

Toope said that Hawking's "exceptional contributions to scientific knowledge and the popularization of science and mathematics have left an indelible legacy". Hawking once drolly noted the dark side of his celebrity was that sunglasses and a wig didn't help him go unrecognized, as his wheelchair always gave him away.

In the 1970s, Hawking coined his theory "Hawking radiation" where black holes radiate energy, as well as predicting the existence of mini-black holes at the time of the Big Bang.

When U2 filmed a concert movie for Innocence + Experience: Live in Paris (2015), they used an excerpt from 'Stephen Hawking Global Citizen.' The choice to use that speech made all the more significant in the wake of the of the recent terror attacks that had taken place at The Bataclan in Paris.

On Wednesday it was announced that Hawking had passed away, after complications due to amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, a progressive neurodegenerative disease.
