Stephen Hawking defied death in 1960s, recalls Jayant Narlikar

Many stories about Hawking's death used phrases such as "overcame his disability", or "in spite of his disability", which Starkloff said have negative connotations. "We will miss him forever".

But Hawking's insight has proven right before.

In 1988, Hawking published his book titled A Brief History of Time, in which he explains the idea behind cosmology, black holes, and the big bang.

He also commented on the future of technology, warning that "the development of full artificial intelligence could spell the end of the human race". "Above all, he was unique in every way". At the time, the monarch reportedly joked with Hawking, asking him if he's "still got that American voice". - to ITV in 2017.

But he did not leave the world until the age of 76.

Renowned British physicist Professor Stephen Hawking, who shaped modern cosmology and inspired millions despite suffering from a life-threatening condition, died on Wednesday - leaving millions in mourning globally. 'In order to make sure it was understandable I tried the book out on my nurses.

Hawking has often been compared to Albert Einstein, who did win a Nobel Prize. In 2002, when Stephen Hawking was turning 60, the British Medical Journal (BMJ), a famous scientific journal from across the Atlantic, went back on the fascinating case to understand how the disease work. "I trust that in death you have fulfilled your life's ambition, to know the mind of God". "I have so much I want to do first", he said at the time.

By harvesting enough energy, Hawking believed we could use these wormholes to travel. He visited the royal palace in Stockholm in August 2015. With Hawking, his work was too complicated for most people, but they understood that what he was trying to figure out was basic, even primal. Instead, he said that people should live for the now and "seek the greatest value of our action". "He was a warrior".

From Pink Floyd to The Big Bang Theory, take a look some of the times Professor Hawking popped up in popular culture. "Let's not place humanity in the position of those ants", he said. By that point, I had to try and at least technically, if not emotionally, structure what the performance was going to be, because we weren't shooting chronologically. To many of us, Stephen Hawking was a symbol - a symbol of the immense capabilities of the human being, a symbol of never surrendering mind, and of science itself. Starkloff and her late husband Max Starkloff, who was disabled, met Hawking at a White House reception in 1998.

As Hawking told NASA Space Station astronauts in 2014, we wish the same for him: "May you keep flying like superman in microgravity". He developed severe physical disabilities but defied all odds by living far past the average lifespan for people with this disease.

In the first leg of the tour in Mumbai, Hawking addressed an international physics seminar at the Tata Institute of Fundamental Research (TIFR).

He said Hawking showed to the world that radiation can escape from black holes which are believed to absorb everything, and this was his "biggest discovery".
