Touching Elite Dangerous Stephen Hawking Tribute Held By Players

Elite Dangerous Stephen Hawking Tribute

This past week saw the unfortunate passing of renowned physicist Stephen Hawking. While heartfelt reactions and tributes poured in from all over the globe, a few gamers were looking for a way to honor the man who inspired so many. After a bit of coordinating, the Elite Dangerous Stephen Hawking tribute was held, leading players on a five-hour tour through the stars.

The event, which took place on March 17th, spanned five hours and led participants to 19 different stations that were named after the late physicist. This was after departing the Hawking Station in Gaoh. Participants were requested “to bring a canister or two of Tea with” them, with the intent of dropping it into the tour’s final destination of HIP 34707, a black hole.

In addition to this, those joining the Elite Dangerous Stephen Hawking tribute were asked to change their ID plates to “T4 SWH.” “Prof. Hawking’s car number plate allegedly once was T4 SWH,” which is the reasoning behind players being asked to change their own plates. The itinerary and route map can be seen in the images below:

Of course, since the Elite Dangerous Stephen Hawking tribute has come and gone, this shouldn’t stop those who couldn’t make it from following in their footsteps. All of the details needed are above, so grab some tea, change those ID plates, and head out into the stars.

Stephen Hawking passed away in Cambridge on March 14th at the age of 76. He was a brilliant physicist, cosmologist, and author of several works including “A Brief History of Time: From the Big Bang to Black Holes.” He was also Lucasian Professor of Mathematics at Cambridge University between 1979 and 2009. The impact he has had on the Universe will be felt for generations to come.
