Stephen Hawking dies at 76
Stephen Hawking, the brilliant British theoretical physicist who overcame a
debilitating disease to publish wildly popular books probing the mysteries
of the universe, has died, according to a family spokesman. He was 76.
Considered by many to be the world's greatest living scientist, Hawking was
also a cosmologist, astronomer, mathematician and author of numerous books,
including the landmark "A Brief History of Time."
With fellow physicist Roger Penrose, Hawking merged Einstein's theory of
relativity with quantum theory to suggest that space and time would begin
with the Big Bang and end in black holes. Hawking also discovered that black
holes are not completely black but emit radiation and will likely eventually
evaporate and disappear.
