Stephen Hawking’s farewell: As his ashes were buried, his voice was beamed into space

  Stephen Hawking’s farewell: As his ashes were buried, his voice was beamed into space "This is a beautiful and symbolic gesture that creates a link between our father's presence on this planet, his wish to go into space, and his explorations of the universe in his mind,” his daughter said.The universe that Stephen Hawking spent a lifetime studying now knows his voice.

His voice will be accompanied by the music of Greek composer Vangelis, who is perhaps best known for creating the iconic soundtracks of movies including 1981’s Chariots of Fire and 1982’s Blade Runner.

Vangelis—real name Evángelos Odysséas Papathanassíou—also composed the score to PBS’ 1980 TV series Cosmos: A Personal Voyage.

Hawking’s daughter, Lucy Hawking, said the broadcast will be channeled towards a black hole in the 1A 0620-00 binary star system, according to the Telegraph. The system is relatively close, sitting about 3,300 light years away in the constellation Monoceros.

Stephen Hawking's ashes buried in Westminster Abbey

  Stephen Hawking's ashes buried in Westminster Abbey Stephen Hawking has taken his place among Britain's greatest scientists with the burial of his ashes in Westminster Abbey, between the graves of Charles Darwin and Isaac Newton. More than 1,000 people Friday attended a service of thanksgiving for the physicist, who died in March at 76 after decades of living with motor neuron disease. The service included readings by actor Benedict Cumberbatch, who played Hawking in a BBC drama, and astronaut Tim Peake.There were also tributes from Astronomer Royal Martin Rees and Nobel prize winner Kip Thorne.

Professor Stephen Hawking ' s voice will be beamed live into a black hole while his ashes are being interred at Westminster Abbey, his family revealed. The late scientist's words have been set to an original piece of music, composed by Vangelis, for the Service of Thanksgiving

Hawking’s voice will deliver “a message of peace and hope, about unity and the need for us to live together in harmony on this planet," his daughter said. The unusual broadcast will be a “beautiful and symbolic gesture that creates a link between our father's presence on this planet, his wish to go into space and his explorations of the universe in his mind."

The service of thanksgiving will take place at Westminster Abbey in London on Friday. It will celebrate the life of the acclaimed cosmologist and science communicator. The service will include traditional elements such as Bible readings and a full choir.

Notable figures including British actor Benedict Cumberbatch, who portrayed the scientist in 2004 TV movie Hawking, will give readings and addresses at the ceremony, the Telegraph stated. British astronaut Tim Peake will also play a role in the memorial, executive director of the Stephen Hawking Foundation Elizabeth Forrester previously told Newsweek.

Black Holes Can Maybe Turn Into Dark Matter Lasers

  Black Holes Can Maybe Turn Into Dark Matter Lasers Black holes are already some of the strangest objects in the universe, and scientists sometimes dream up some pretty wild theories about their behavior. Like maybe they can accumulate dark matter particles and turn into black hole lasers, beaming radiation out into space. This isn’t just someone’s fantastical idea. You might remember a mind-blowing theory from last year that linked a theorized dark matter particle called an “axion” with black holes and gravitational waves. This new theory is an extension of that—they’re called BLASTs, or “black hole lasers powered by axion superradiant instabilities.

If you find yourself stuck inside a black hole , Stephen Hawking says not to panic: You may die, but all traces of your existence may not be lost forever. Speaking at the KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm, Hawking argued that information that is sucked into a black hole is not doomed to

1,000 lucky members of the public are set to attend following a ticket ballot earlier this year.

Hawking’s ashes will be interred between the graves of Isaac Newton and Charles Darwin. His funeral took place earlier this year at Great St Mary’s Church in Cambridge, U.K.

Hawking died at the age of 76 on March 14 this year after battling amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) for some five decades. A revolutionary within his field, he kept working until the end of his life. His final scientific paper was published posthumously less than two months ago.

Hawking is also remembered for his work in science communication, introducing millions to astrophysics with the release of his 1988 bestseller, A Brief History of Time. Unafraid of whimsy, he took on several cameo roles in his time, notably appearing as himself in Matt Groening cartoons The Simpsons and Futurama. He also once held a party for time travelers. Unfortunately, nobody showed up.

In 2014, Hawking released a paper proclaiming traditional black holes incompatible with quantum physics. “There is no escape from a black hole in classical theory,” he previously told Nature. Quantum theory, however, “enables energy and information to escape from a black hole.” The ebony behemoths, it seemed, might really be gray.
