This Wednesday, the world bid farewell to famed physicist Stephen Hawking, who passed away in its early hours at the age of 76.

Hawking is known for his significant contributions to the worlds of physics and astronomy that not only altered humanity’s perception of the cosmos, but also played a fundamental role in molding NASA’s ventures in space exploration.

His book A Brief History Of Time, which questions the beginning of the universe, the concept of time, and where the boundaries of earth reside—if they even exist at all—was ranked number one on the New York Times bestseller list, and has sold 10 million copies over 20 years.

Heartfelt condolences have poured in from around the world, including artists, designers, illustrators, and creative studios.

See some artworks that pay tribute to the inspirational visionary below. Rest in peace Stephen Hawking.

The Evolution Of Stephen Hawking Continues: No longer bound by earthly frustrations, Hawking has kicked us all aside today. was lucky enough to meet him briefly in person at the Science Museum a few years ago. Hopefully now he will enjoy his space, I heard it’s pretty expansive.
