Physicist Stephen Hawking has died at age 76

A family spokesman confirmed the news to the BBC.

The best-known theoretical physicist of his time, Professor Hawking wrote so lucidly of the mysteries of space, time and black holes that his book, "A Brief History of Time", became an global bestseller, making him one of science's biggest celebrities since Albert Einstein.

He was the first academic to set out a theory of cosmology explained by a union of the general theory of relativity and quantum mechanics.

Physicist Stephen Hawking, a scientific mastermind helped mankind better understand the world and the universe, died at the age of 76.

He communicated his ideas through an American-accented speech synthesiser after a life-saving tracheotomy in 1985 took away his ability to speak.

He completed his doctorate on the origins of the universe, became a research fellow at Caius College and married Wilde in 1965.

Jackson invited the Fab 5 -Bobby Berk, Karamo Brown , Antoni Porowski , Jonathan Van Ness and Tan France - to be his groomsmen . The fan favorite announced the two are engaged. "So happy to say that Abby and I are reunited", he wrote on Twitter .

Hawking worked for the next four years on black holes, discovering they weren't totally black, but leaked radiation, now known as "Hawking radiation".

He was a Lucasian Professor at the university from 1979 to 2009, a position previously held by Isaac Newton in 1663.

The disease spurred him to work harder but also contributed to the collapse of his two marriages, he wrote in a 2013 memoir My Brief History.

"Professor Stephen Hawking is a brilliant man and a mediocre student", Mr. Obama said. The couple split after 25 years and he married his former nurse, Elaine Mason, but the union broke down amid allegations, denied by him, of abuse.

The world famous physicist and cosmologist was the subject of the 2014 film "The Theory Of Everything", which starred Eddie Redmayne and Felicity Jones.

"It is time to explore other solar systems".
