Following the tragic news that nobel prize winning physicist Stephen Hawking passed away aged 76, many stars have taken to social media to share their condolences. As a reoccurring guest star on the hit TV show 'The Big Bang Theory', actress Kaley Cuoco noted that it was truly such an honour getting to work with him. She noted that he made them all laugh.

Stephen Hawking was born on January 8, 1942, in Oxford, England. He has died today in his home, in Cambridge, England.

He was 76 years old.

Hawking was famous for many theories about space and time, and among physicist he was some kind of a celebrity.

Hawking was much more than a clever, frontier moving man. He was a very important part of popularizing science across the globe, and making it more understandable to the common people.

His life was turbulent, as he was diagnosed with a rare early-onset slow-progressing illness known as Lou Gehrig's disease, that gradually paralyzed him over the decades. Hawking was married two times, and he had three children.

Hawking's life was so full of action and unbelievable stories, that it was made into a movie called The Theory of Everything (2014).
