Sudarsan Pattnaik pays sand art tribute to Stephen Hawking

Stephan Hawking died Getty ITV GRIEF Piers Morgan paid tribute to Stephen Hawking

But after the pair had introduced the show's tribute, with Holly saying: 'Before we leave you today, we want to pay tribute to the world renowned physicist and genuine genius Stephen Hawking, who has sadly died at the age of 76'.

Hawking was a theoretical physicist.

Inside the shell of his increasingly useless body was a razor-sharp mind, with an enduring fascination with the mysteries of black holes.

The scientist was diagnosed with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) at the age of 21, and was told by doctors that he would die within three years.

"He lived about 50 years longer than would normally have been expected for someone with Lou Gehrig's disease", said Gowdy, who first met Hawking as a fellow graduate student at a conference in 1966 at Cornell University.

He was eventually left nearly completely paralysed and unable to speak, except through a voice synthesiser operated by facial movements.

"Hawking's name is on many papers from even past year".

From his thoughts on human nature to the power of curiosity, here are some of Stephen Hawking's most memorable quotes. "Neymar's temporary wheelchair situation is profoundly minor compared to the lifetime wheelchair situation Hawking had. He believed in the unification of quantum theory and general relativity".

UAE happiest nation in the Arab world

"My goal is simple", Hawking once said. "It is complete understanding of the universe, why it is as it is and why it exists at all".

He became internationally famous for his 1988 book a Brief History of Time, one of the most complex tomes to ever achieve mass appeal.

Hawking is best known for his Big Bang and black holes theory. He was able to prove that small amounts of radiation could escape black hole gravitational pull.

Luckily, the gaffe lasted only a matter of seconds before switching to Professor Hawking's voice over the show's theme music. Demand for the thesis was so high that it caused the university's website to go down.

He says he got into physics because of Hawking and to this day his research is building on that legacy. I still keep asking these "how" and "why" questions. How would you like to be Reg behind the counter at the off-licence and find out the kid you used to give swirlies to at St. Albans School completely changed the way we understand the universe? "But it bothers me".

But on Wednesday afternoon, a tone-deaf Neymar Stephen Hawking tribute has us wondering if the Brazilian soccer star was mocking the British scientist.

By pulling out of the Paris climate accords and refusing to take action, Hawking said US President Donald Trump's actions "could push the Earth over the brink, to become like Venus, with a temperature of two hundred and fifty degrees, and raining sulphuric acid".
