Stephen Hawking, the brilliant theoretical physicist whose theories shaped the universe as we know it, died early Wednesday morning, on the birthday of Albert Einstein. He was 76. Hawking is regarded as one of the most influential scientists in history, known especially for his study on the origins and design of the universe. His theories changed how we understand black holes and relativity and the Big Bang. His legacy may be defined by his pursuit of a “unified theory”, an explanation for the discrepancies between the physics of subatomic particles (quantum theory) and the rules of gravity and motion, as described by Einstein’s General Theory of Relativity.
