BBC wrote:Physicist Stephen Hawking has died at the age of 76, his family has said.

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."

Rest in peace. :(

RIP!

He really was legendary.
I'm slightly surprised he was 'only' 76 though. Somehow i always thought he was older...

I hate to say anyone's date of death is fitting, but it's quite the coincidence that today is Pi Day (and Albert Einstein's birthday).
