News broke early on Wednesday that famed physicist Stephen Hawking had passed away peacefully in his sleep.
Sally Light, chief executive of the MND Association, said: "All of us at the MND Association have been extremely saddened by the news of Professor Hawking's passing". He was a great scientist and an extraordinary man whose work and legacy will live on for many years.
At the age of 22, Hawking was diagnosed with Lou Gehrig's disease, a motor neuron disorder that causes the loss of control of muscle movement which leaves sufferers eventually bereft of their ability to walk, eat, speak, and in the end, breathe.
Stephen Hawking was a brilliant cosmologist, who inspired generations around the world, making some of the most complicated physics of our time accessible to the masses, NASA said in honour of the space agency's "long time friend".

Fierce competition in the toy segment ultimately led to its demise, including competition from Walmart, Target and Amazon. The Toys "R" Us logo followed in the late 1950s with a backwards "R" to give the impression that a child wrote it.
Mr Rose said: "For Professor Hawking, we started off with the standard measures and then worked with him and his assistant to customise the fit and positioning for him".
Mr Satterfield said: "I was a little starstruck when I met him". According to Matt Selman, a writer for The Simpsons, Hawking enjoyed his cameos on the animated sitcom so much that for "a couple of years" he would turn up to rehearsals just to watch the cast run through their lines.
One added: "Neymar there with his broken toe and sprained ankle, attempting to draw a comparison to Stephen Hawking, who had debilitating ALS for over 50 years".
He remembers seeing Hawking at the University of Minnesota in 1989 and remarked at how deeply he thought and spoke.

Kono told reporters Wednesday that he "regretted" that Tillerson was sacked as the two had established a trusting relationship. Multiple White House officials said that Tillerson had been informed of the decision Friday, while he was in Ethiopia.
In an interview in 2011, Hawking said he's unafraid to die.
Using his position as one of the world's most famous scientists, Hawking discussed and spoke about a wide range of issues from the existence of extraterrestrial life to the nature of philosophy.
"When I was an undergrad studying physics, one of the first professional papers I read was his "The Wave Function of the Universe", said Dr. Brian J. Buerke, associate professor of physics and department chairman at Albright College, 1621 N. 13th St.
Jose Mourinho tells Man United to forget about Liverpool FC
Asked whether he felt he had a squad good enough to make it a hat-trick of titles with United, he replied: "Not yet". This season, he has played 17 times but increasingly in the bigger games.
Richard Green, of the Motor Neurone Disease Association - the British name for ALS - said Hawking met the classic definition of the disease, as "the ideal mind trapped in an imperfect body".
