Renowned British physicist Stephen Hawking, whose mental genius and physical disability made him a household name and inspiration across the globe, has died at age 76, his family said Wednesday.
Hawking, who had been suffering from ALS for many years, died "peacefully in his home" on Monday, according to a family statement.
A man of great humour, he became a popular ambassador for science and was always careful to ensure that the general public had ready access to his work.
His children Lucy, Robert and Tim released the following statement.
Hawking was born on January 8, 1942, in Oxford, England.
The Theory of Everything became the title of the 2014 film that charted Professor Hawking's early life and how he came to terms with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, the crippling disease that gradually paralysed him. He was diagnosed in 1963, when he was 21, and doctors initially only gave him a few years to live.
The illness left him wheelchair-bound and largely unable to speak except through a voice synthesiser - with its computerised American accent achieving iconic status in recent decades, partly thanks to his numerous appearances on The Simpsons.
Foreign law firms not allowed to practice in India
However, the Bombay High Court in Lawyers' Collective had held that foreign law firms could not open liaison offices in India. Ajay Shaw, partner, DSK Legal, said: "This judgment will not have any bearing on Indian law firms at this stage".
For Hawking, the early diagnosis of his terminal disease ignited a fresh sense of goal. Much has already been written (I again direct you to The Guardian's obituary) that does a far better job of explaining Hawking's life and career.
"My goal is simple. It is a complete understanding of the universe, why it is as it is and why it exists at all", Hawking added.
The best-known theoretical physicist of his time, 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.
Hawking studied the complex nature of the black hole, using it as a "mathematical laboratory to understand the deep mysteries of the universe".
In 2002, Hawking was ranked number 25 in the BBC's poll of the 100 Greatest Britons, his book A Brief History of Time was on the United Kingdom best-seller list for a record-breaking 237 weeks. "May his soul rest in peace", the prime minister said on Twitter. "With some luck, with his passing will come some perspective as well as appreciation", wrote David Rothkopf. Even more shocking to researchers was the fact that Hawking radiation should erase information from the Universe, in apparent contradiction to some of the basic tenets of quantum theory, as Hawking pointed out in 1976.
In 2015, British actor Eddie Redmayne won an Oscar for his portrayal of Prof Hawking in the biopic The Theory of Everything the previous year.
