General / Off-Topic Stephen Hawking Memorial petition

I'd expect nothing less than an entire sector or even quadrant of the Galaxy named after him.

Maybe rename the Stuemeae sector (the sector containing Sagittarius A*) and therefore all the stars within, after him.

As a Beagle Point Expedition participant (PS4), I concur that something should happen to memorialize one of the greatest scientists that Earth has ever known. 07

Add my vote, while your at it make a station and name it after him, even better if the system has a black hole in it.

You can't be serious...
Its Sirius and you need a permit ;-)

But siriusly I like the idea of the Hawking's Gap, a mind like that deserves more than a simple station.
 
In regards to Sag-A*, the Distant Worlds II organizers have written up a CG proposal that would include the building of an astrophysics lab at the galactic core as part of the expedition goals in Q4 2018... if its accepted by FD then combining that with a community effort to honour Stephen Hawking would be a fitting tribute imho. A grand adventure to the core with a mission to build a science installation at, or near, Sag-A*. The manpower to pull it off will be there with over 2,200 players already signed up to the expedition... possibly doubling that by Q4 when its promoted further.

But DW2 will probably do something to honour Stephen Hawking regardless, maybe some sort of science-based events during the expedition as we already have a science-based project in the pipeline for DW2 that could be adapted to include black holes and whatever new environmental anomalies that are slated for Q4.
Yep, I like this idea the best. The only true fitting place for Hawking Memorial would be at the greatest black hole in the galaxy, the very center of our Milky Way.
 
I support putting a memorial beacon into the game, but i would prefer putting it at V1357 Cygni (Cygnus X-1 black hole). Maybe a station called "Hawking Memorial"...
This is the perfect location, there should definitely be a research facility Called the "Professor Stephen Hawking Black Hole Reasearch Facility" either a station or a mega ship shuttling between black holes.
 
A cool honor would be having his holograph in front of a station like those advertising holographs at the entrances. so everyone entering hawkins station can see him.
If they did that for him, they'd have to do it for all the stations that are named after a scientist, of which there are many.

That may raise copyright issues for the images as well as permission issues from the person or their family.

They don't have to do that, but of couse it woudl be neat to have that, and writing a mail for such a permission isn' hard. if theres no permissions theres no pic, simple as that.
