Famed British theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking has died at his home at the age of 76, according to numerous reports. But it was the way that Hawking communicated science in best-selling books and lectures, despite suffering from a debilitating disease, that introduced generations of avid fans to the cosmos. His most famous, "A Brief History of Time", has sold more than 10 million copies. Doctors predicted Hawking had two years to live.

And yet, live he did, for another 55 years and against all odds (though he had to live a substantial part of his life in a wheel chair and speaking with the assistance of a computer). Hawking will be remembered for his research into the very fundamentals of the universe, including the nature of gravity and black holes (as well as his role as an eloquent scientific emissary to the public).

Stephen Hawking would later attend Oxford University, where he'd studied physics before moving to Cambridge University in 1962 to obtain a doctorate in cosmology - the science of the origins and evolution of the universe.

Hawking featured in a number of TV shows as himself. Hawking's celebrity also included appearances on "The Simpsons", "Star Trek", and the "Big Bang Theory".

He also guest starred in Futurama and the Big Bang Theory, as well as Father Ted and using his voice for other shows and sitcoms.

In 2014, Hawking was portrayed by Eddie Redmayne in the film "The Theory of Everything", based on Hawking early life and his relationship with his wife.

They married in 1964, and had three children together: Robert, Lucy and Timothy.

However they divorced in 1995, when Hawking fell in love with his nurse Elaine Mason. They married that year, only to divorce in 2006.
