Stephen Hawking, a genius who dedicated his life to unlocking the secrets of the Universe. His 1962 book "A Brief History of Time" became an worldwide bestseller, making him one of science's biggest celebrities since Albert Einstein.

"I try to lead as normal a life as possible, and not think about my condition, or regret the things it prevents me from doing, which are not that many".

The love story between Hawking and Wilde was retold in the 2014 film "The Theory of Everything", which won Britain's Eddie Redmayne the best actor Oscar for his portrayal of the scientist.

In May last year, Hawking warned that humans should leave earth within 100 years if we wanted to survive.
