Pioneering theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking has died at the age of 76. The renowned scientist changed our assumptions about Black holes in 1974 when he along with Roger Penrose proposed that some things do escape the gravitational clutches of black holes. His theory combined Quantum mechanics and the Theory of Relativity. According to his theory, some kind of particles had to defy the immense gravity of a black hole and radiate out. This radiation was named Hawking radiation. This changed our fundamental understanding of gravity today. However, for most people, Hawking was better known as the author of ‘Brief History of time’. The book condenses essential cosmological concepts in an easier manner for a non-specialist audience.
