Stephen Hawking’s voice beamed into space

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.

This is very cool to hear about black holes and all, but this disease that Stephen hawking had was more than some normal disease it was slowly paralysing him he might have died before 70 but he was lucky to even stay here for years he was an inspiration thank you, Stephen hawking.
