Stephen Hawking, the man who was expected to live two or three more years at the most when he was 21, according to doctors, has passed away today, on π Day (Pi Day, pronouncing it like 'pie').
Hawking suffered from a rare early-onset, slow-progressing form of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS, known in Spanish as 'ELA') that gradually paralysed him over the decades. At the time of his death, he was still able to communicate using a single cheek muscle attached to a speech-generating device. Hawking has died today, 14th March 2018, at the age of 76.
