'The mind of God': top quotes from Stephen Hawking

Texas state Rep. Briscoe Cain has come under fire over a Steven Hawking tweet

Needless to say, celebrities from all over the world, such as the likes of Shah Rukh Khan and others were observed to be paying their heartfelt tributes to the man.

Sometimes it feels like science is losing ground in the modern world, but people still look to the stars for answers about who we are and how we come to be here.

"In this day and age, we are able to provide such wonderful support for breathing, for feeding, and physical therapy and rehab to maintain muscle strength", she said, while adding that Hawking's mental makeup and resilient nature could also have played a role.

Stick to this space for the latest in Bollywood!

Professor Brian Cox said on his twitter account "Sad to hear about Stephen Hawking". He countered that many great scientists have also been religious.

He was known for his theories on black holes and relativity and went on to publish several popular science books including A Brief History of Time. But now science offers a more convincing explanation. At the request of Realnoe Vremya, professor of the Kazan Federal University Nail Sakhibullin tells about Hawking's achievements and explains why he was a real "man of peace".

"His courage, humour and determination to get the most from life was an inspiration".

Hawking himself believed that it was his sense of humour and his commitment to his work that had helped him survive ALS, as he had revealed during an interview with The Washington Post in 2016.

American astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson tweeted: "His passing has left an intellectual vacuum in his wake" while George Smoot, who won the Nobel Prize in Physics, described Prof Hawking as "very competitive". This approach shows convincingly that black holes do not violate any laws, and (by amending Hawking's theory just a tiny bit) that theory can be appreciated in all its beauty.

He said: "What a privilege it was to know Stephen Hawking. His life and career workings have been many a subject matter on The Big Bang Theory and we are all better for it".

But it was in his 1988 book A Brief History of Time that Hawking shared his theories with a mass audience, making them explicitly nontechnical and accessible to the average person.

But most of all, he'll be remembered for expanding our universe, opening up new realms of human possiblity and achievement while exploring scientific theory.

Hawking also proposed that black holes should emit heat and eventually pop out of existence - a process that for miniature black holes would result in an explosion that equalled the energy of a million one-megaton hydrogen bombs. He was first to show the world that black holes can disappear.

His was dubbed one of the most brilliant theoretical physicists since Albert Einstein.

There's so much that can be said about Hawking and his contributions to the world that it likely would make this article run on and on for many pages.
