Stephen Hawking's death comes after 76 years of life. The famous physicist was diagnosed with a rare illness at the age of 22 that left him bound to a wheelchair. He outlived expectations from doctors, who were only expecting him to live to be in his mid 20s.

Stephen Hawking saw many achievements in his life . These include writing several books, the discovery of Hawking radiation and appearing on several TV shows. He also once had the chance at knighthood, but turned it down over a disagreement about government funding for science.

Stephen Hawking sired three children during his life with now ex-wife Jane Hawking. The two were divorced in 1995 and Hawking married Elaine Mason during that same year. Mason and Hawking divorced in 2006.

"He was a fun loving guy. Inside that shell, inside that body that was paralysed, was someone who was full of vigour, full of passion for life," Jim Al-Khalili, a theoretical physicist at Surrey University, said in a statement obtained by BBC News .
