The Associated Press reports Stephen Hawking, the world-renowned theoretical physicist, cosmologist, and author, died Tuesday at the age of 76. "His courage and persistence with his brilliance and humour inspired people across the world", his children, Lucy, Robert and Tim said in a statement. "He once said, 'It would not be much of a universe if it wasn't home to the people you love.' We will miss him forever".

Stephen Hawking, the world's most famous physicist - celebrated for his black hole discoveries - has died. according to his family. He was a 21-year-old Ph.D student when he was diagnosed with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), or Lou Gehrig's disease - and told he had just a year or two to live.

He went on to become a researcher at the University of Cambridge and Professorial Fellow at the Gonville and Caius College.

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

His other popular books included The Universe in a Nutshell (2001), On the Shoulders of Giants (2002), A Briefer History of Time (2005) and The Grand Design (2010).

"Professor Stephen Hawking is a brilliant man and a mediocre student", Mr. Obama said.

He not only lived a lot longer, his 1988 book, "A Brief History of Time", explaining the mysteries of the universe in layman's language, became an global bestseller and made him an unlikely world-wide celebrity.

"I try to lead as normal a life as possible, and not think about my condition, or regret the things it prevents me from doing, which are not that many".

In May last year, Hawking warned that humans should leave earth within 100 years if we wanted to survive. 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.

Hawking was the subject of the Oscar-winning film The Theory of Everything in 2014, which depicted his life at Cambridge University.
