Stephen Hawking, famous physicist, cosmologist, and author, died March 14, at the age of 76.

The cause of Hawking’s death was the disease he was fighting since 1963, which was ALS ( A nervous system disease that weakens muscles and impacts physical function).

Hawking is recognized worldwide as the greatest scientist of his generation.

One of his many achievements was when he published “A Brief History of Time”, which sold 10 million copies.
