Stephen Hawking dies at 76

HOLLYWOOD, MD - Renowned physicist, Stephen Hawking passed away peacefully at his house in Cambridge, Wednesday, March 14 at 12:30 a.m., according to a family spokesman.

Hawking famously studied and wrote on the big bang, relativity, and black holes. He authored the widely successful book, "A Brief History of Time" which sold over 10 million copies. 

Hawking was diagnosed with ALS in 1963 at the age of 21. He was originally given two  years to live but learned to live with the paralyzing disease through use of a wheelchair and synthesizer for speech. His ability to lead a fulfilling and successful life despite his debilitating condition is regarded as a prime example of mind over matter.

Hawking leaves behind three children and three grand children.
