Hawking had a rare early-onset slow-progressing form of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), also known as motor neurone disease or Lou Gehrig’s disease, that gradually paralysed him over the decades. … The diagnosis of his disease came when Hawking was 21 years old, in 1963.

The theoretical physicist has thirteen honorary degrees, says a biography on his website. He was awarded the CBE (1982), Companion of Honour (1989) and the Presidential Medal of Freedom (2009).

He is a Fellow of the Royal Society and a member of the US National Academy of Sciences and the Pontifical Academy of Sciences.
