Stephen Hawking just passed away at the age of 76. Hawking was a world renowned physicist who helped the world better understand the universe that we are a part of - the Big Bang!
He was diagnosed with a slow-progressing form of ALS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis) or also known as Lou Gehrig's Disease starting in the 1960s that over time paralyzed him but it did not stop him one bit! He was able to communicate through a speech-generating device, defeating all the odds against him! RIP Stephen Hawking!
