Global tributes pour in for Stephen Hawking, who died at 76

Hawking shone a spotlight on the work of another Canadian research project when he featured the SNOLAB neutrino observatory in Sudbury, Ont., in his 2011 documentary mini-series, "Brave New World with Stephen Hawking".

In a statement to the Press Association, the Doctor Strange star said he would celebrate the beloved scientist's life by drinking a margarita in his honour.

The good news is that the rest of the world is committed to meeting its Paris carbon emission reduction pledges. "Perhaps I'd even travel to the end of the universe to find out how our whole cosmic story ends".

Who knew Hawking had the skills of a roast comedian? We are here together and we need to live together with tolerance and respect ...

In later years, though, he suggested a unified theory might not exist.

He gave the speech in front of a crowd of over 400 people on Thursday evening, January 7, as part of the Reith lecture at the Royal Institute in London.

Now Prof Wands has paid tribute to Prof Hawking, who died yesterday aged 76 at his Cambridge home. "But it bothers me".

The illness gradually robbed him of mobility, leaving him confined to a wheelchair, almost completely paralysed and unable to speak except through his trademark voice synthesiser.

Prime Minister Theresa May said: "Stephen Hawking was a brilliant and extraordinary mind - one of the great scientists of his generation". But Einstein didn't get the Nobel for his famed theory of general relativity. The film focused still more attention on Hawking's remarkable achievements.

In 1986, Walter Woltozs developed a computer program called "Equalizer" especially for Hawking.

He suggested that even after a black hole has evaporated, the information it consumed during its life remains in a fuzzy "halo" - but not necessarily in the proper order.

"I have lived with the prospect of an early death for the last 49 years". He saw it all leading to a "US-style insurance system".

Hawking, it said, had always "wanted to advance the relationship between faith and scientific reason".

It helped cement his place in popular culture. "What a shame", the physicist said. He understood how important it was. The answer is yes, it is.

CERN's head of theoretical physics Gian Giudice says Hawking's work had a "great impact" on research at the organization.

"His passing has left an intellectual vacuum in his wake". When this happens, the cells will stop sending messages to the muscles so they will not function as they should anymore.

Dr. Hawking suffered from ALS, a neurodegenerative disease also known as Lou Gehrig's disease, which is typically fatal within a few years of diagnosis. With stiff upper lip, he defied those odds.

Married twice, Hawkings had three children by his first wife.

"I keep it because I have not heard a voice I like better and because I have identified with it", he said in 2006.

The Presidential Conference, an academic event held in Jerusalem, was being hosted by the late Israeli President Shimon Peres.

Hawking divorced Jane in 1991, an acrimonious split that strained his relationship with their children.

On that occasion, he spoke for about 20 minutes to give a generic explanation of his theory.

"Like so many, I was inspired by his first book to learn more about science, physics and the edges of our universe", Trudeau said.

"What I meant by 'we would know the mind of God' is, we would know everything that God would know, if there were a God".
