The memorial service for the late Professor Stephen Hawking will take place today at the Westminster Abbey in London.
A limited number of people will be attending this as few invitations have been sent out. Among them will be three disabled students.
These disabled students, Jason Felce, Jack Smith and Rose Brown, study at the National Star College in Cheltenham and use electronic communication devices.
The college wrote to the Stephen Hawking Foundation requesting them to let the students be a part of the service.
The students regard Professor Hawking as a source of inspiration and aspire to follow in his footsteps.
The renowned physicist died at the age of 76 in March this year. He was diagnosed with motor neurone disease as a student and was told he would not live beyond 21. However, he defied all those medical predictions and went on to establish an illustrious career in the world of science, inspiring thousands of people around the world.
