The wheelchair-confined celebrity scientist passed away peacefully at his home in the early hours of Wednesday, his family said.
In the first leg of the tour in Mumbai, Hawking addressed an international physics seminar at the Tata Institute of Fundamental Research (TIFR). The human race shouldn't have all its eggs in one basket, or on one planet. You clearly have a brilliant mind", before flooring him, literally, with "You made an arithmetic mistake on page two. Is Science incompatible with religion?
That's because the Nobel committee looks for proof, not big ideas. In 1974, Hawking combined quantum theory with black holes, and proposed his theory that they did not destroy matter but rather recycled it, spewing out what has become to be known as "Hawking Radiation". "This shows that you should never lose hope", explained the physicist. Even after he lost the ability to speak, his robotic voice soon became universally recognized. Stephen was a towering figure intellectually in terms of scientific achievement, major contributions in cosmology and gravitation. "This is what I have tried to convey in my books".
In his later years, Prof Hawking regularly warned about the dangers of artificial intelligence, alien life, environmental degradation and short-sighted leaders. "He was a warrior".
Stephen Hawking, the famous British astrophysicist, died on March 14, 2018 at the age of 76. "I trust that in death you have fulfilled your life's ambition, to know the mind of God". He was diagnosed with a deadly disease, and his expectations dropped to zero.
Hawking, it said, had always "wanted to advance the relationship between faith and scientific reason". At Cambridge, he held the position of Lucasian Professor of Mathematics - the prestigious post held from 1669 to 1702 by Sir Isaac Newton, widely considered one of the greatest scientists in modern history.
He said he wrote the book to convey his own excitement over recent discoveries about the universe.
He also tells Oliver that despite the possibility of an infinite number of universes, there's no way in which the comedian could ever score a date with actress Charlize Theron. His body was attacked by amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, or ALS, when he was 21, but he stunned doctors by living with the usually fatal illness for more than 50 years.
