The 76-year-old, whose life's work shaped modern cosmology and helped ordinary people to better understand the universe, passed away in the early hours of this morning, his family confirmed.

Professor Hawking's "A Brief History of Time" was published in 1988 and entered the Guinness Book of Records after staying on The Sunday Times bestseller list for 237 weeks.

The book sold 10m copies and was translated into 40 different languages, but is famously referred to as one of the "greatest unread books in history".

RIP. I really liked his "Into the Universe" series from a couple years ago.
