The voice of Stephen Hawking was beamed into space from Spain with a message of peace and hope on June 15. At the same time, the British physicist’s ashes were interred at a service in Westminster Abbey in London.

Hawking won international acclaim for his work on black holes. But he also suffered from a motor neuron disease. He had to use a wheelchair and an electronic voice synthesizer. He died on March 14, aged 76.

Hawking’s voice was beamed toward the nearest black hole, 1A 0620-00, his daughter Lucy Hawking said in a statement. His voice was beamed from a European Space Agency station in Cebreros, Spain, about 90 kilometers from Madrid.

“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,” she said in the statement. (Reuters)
