Stephen Hawking’s voice beamed into space

June 20, 2018

The voice of Stephen Hawking has been beamed into space with a message of peace and hope.

The British physicist, who died earlier this year, was an expert on black holes.

The physicist’s voice – set to a music by Greek electronic music composer Vangelis, was sent from the European Space Agency’s Cebreros station in Spain.

The sound was beamed towards the nearest black hole, 1A 0620-00, which lives in a system with an ordinary orange dwarf star.

The wheelchair-bound scientist who died in March aged 76 after a lifetime spent probing the origins of the universe. He suffered from motor neurone disease which forced him to use an electronic voice synthesiser.
