The great scientist Stephen Hawking has died at the age of 76 and it is said that he has passed away at his home in the early hours of Wednesday. He had three kids named Lucy, Robert, and Tim who released the statement, “We have deeply saddened that our beloved father passed away today. He was a great scientist and an extraordinary man whose work and legacy will live on for many years. His courage and persistence with his brilliance and humor inspired people across the world. He once said, ‘It would not be much of a universe if it wasn’t home to the people you love.”
He has done several types of research along with his incurable disease in which he couldn’t talk and move but he delivered his messages through the machine and even lectures. According to Stephen research, he said that due to a mounting population the world will soon produce enough energy to get a ball of fire within 600 years and we should try to move to other planets in order to save our future.
Moreover, Stephen Hawking and Facebook owner Mark were working on the project to send a small spacecraft to the nearest solar system from the earth and Stephen earlier said that “The idea behind this innovation is to have the nano-craft ride on the light beam. Such a system could reach Mars in less than an hour, or reach Pluto in days, pass Voyager in under a week and reach Alpha Centauri in just over 20 years.”
He also focused on Artificial Intelligence, in which he advised to arise technology and use Artificial Intelligence to avoid the dangers in future. In 2014, he told the BBC that “the development of full artificial intelligence could spell the end of the human race”. Not only had this but he also left many questions about this prediction about Black Holes which was initially predicted by the Albert Einstein’s in 1915.
A response of people on death of Stephen at Twitter:
His passing has left an intellectual vacuum in his wake. But it's not empty. Think of it as a kind of vacuum energy permeating the fabric of spacetime that defies measure. Stephen Hawking, RIP 1942-2018. pic.twitter.com/nAanMySqkt

Stephen Hawking once said, "I'm not afraid of death, but I'm in no hurry to die. I have so much I want to do first." RIP Professor Hawking, and may we all strive to live as fully as he did.

Remembering Stephen Hawking, a renowned physicist and ambassador of science. His theories unlocked a universe of possibilities that we & the world are exploring. May you keep flying like superman in microgravity, as you said to astronauts on @Space_Station in 2014 pic.twitter.com/FeR4fd2zZ5
