    From BBC:creep:.com

    I'm not a atheist....

    The Briton was known for his groundbreaking work with black holes and relativity, and was the author of several popular science books including A Brief History of Time.

    His children, Lucy, Robert and Tim, said: "We are deeply saddened that our beloved father passed away today.

    "He was a great scientist and an extraordinary man whose work and legacy will live on for many years."

    They praised his "courage and persistence" and said his "brilliance and humour" inspired people across the world.

    "He once said, 'It would not be much of a universe if it wasn't home to the people you love.' We will miss him forever," they said.

    I didn't even realize he was 76. I don't have much to say about the guy because he used a lot of words that I don't understand, but he was brilliant

    wow... Shocking news :(
    just the other day I was reading an article about something he said about what may have happened before the big bang.
    And now he's gone :(

    Damn, that really sucks. I don't really know what else to say. :(

    Edit: His work in the physics department was truly incredible, and his legacy will certainly live on long after he did. He'll surely be remembered not only as a mathematical genius, but as an inspiration to many others as well.

    Awwww man! This is sad news! Honestly, he lived a helluva lot longer than most people with ALS do and I found myself surprised many times over the year that he kept going.

    I always thought he was overrated, but sad news nonetheless.
