The TV host said: "You've stated that you believe there could be an infinite number of parallel universes". He was a great communicator.

"Given his health, he was a great inspiration". "I have tried to make good use of my time", he said in 2013 autobiographical documentary "Hawking".

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

When he was 32 years old, Hawking became one of the youngest fellows of the Royal Society, Britain's most prestigious scientific body.

World leaders were among those to express their condolences, with Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi tweeting, "His grit and tenacity inspired people all over the world".

Physicist Stephen Hawking used his cheek muscles to communicate. In 1974, Hawking worked on quantum theory, coming to the conclusion that black holes radiated heat, then later evaporated - it was a much debated theory across decades.

The fame Hawking found led to regular television appearances and payments for promoting products, giving him an annual income of around $2 million.

The acclaimed physicist also played himself in Chuck Lorre's popular sitcom The Big Bang Theory, in which he reviewed Sheldon's (Jim Parson) paper on the Higgs boson - a particle in the Standard Model of particle physics.

"A complete, consistent unified theory is only the first step: our goal is a complete understanding of the events around us, and of our own existence", Hawking wrote in "A Brief History of Time", which was published in 1988 and spent over four years on British best-seller charts.

Hawking was born on January 8, 1942, which just happened to be the 300th anniversary of Galileo's death.
