Stephen Hawking's family invites TIME TRAVELLERS to memorial service

Stephen Hawking's Family Invite Time Travellers For His Memorial Service Stephen Hawking's family invites TIME TRAVELLERS to memorial service

London travel blogger IanVisits who noticed that people born from 2019 to 2038 were permitted to attend the memorial service said it seems ideal that the memorial website would allow people born in the future to attend the service as Hawking himself had hosted a party for time travellers.

The thanksgiving service for the late British physicist Stephen Hawking, to be held at Westminster Abbey, in London, on June 15th, is open to "time travelers" but not to flat-earthers, and this is not a joke. Apply to attend the ceremony before 15 may.

After a lifetime exploring the mysteries of black holes, the origins of the universe, and the nature of time itself, the renowned scientist died on March 14 at the age of 76.

On the application form, the date of birth section can be filled in from 1918 to 2038, which includes the possibility of future-born persons attending the event, if they can teleport back in time, of course.

While all applicants appear to be from the present day, a spokesman for the Stephen Hawking Foundation said: "We can not exclude the possibility of time travel as it has not been disproven to our satisfaction".

'None did, but it seems flawless that the memorial website allows people born in the future to attend the service. If any time traveller attends the event then this will be the biggest discovery of mankind to date.

Sarah Bridle, a professor of Astrophysics at the University of Manchester, told BBC Radio that Hawking, who was confined to a wheelchair for most of his life, had remained curious about the potential for time travel, even after his party in 2009.

A spokesman for the foundation told the BBC that while applicants appear - so far - to be from the present day, 'we can not exclude the possibility of time travel as it has not been disproven to our satisfaction. In order to get an invite, people will have to sign up for the event on a public ballot put out by The Stephen Hawking Foundation, though only 1,000 will be selected.

"I have experimental evidence that time travel is not possible", Hawking said in 2012.

'He was curious and he had a great sense of humour, ' she said.

The service is set to be attended by Hawking's family, friends and colleagues.

The ceremony will take place on June 15, 2018.

"What a shame", Hawking said at the time.
