Time travellers welcome to Stephen Hawking's memorial service

Stephen Hawking's Family Invite Time Travellers For His Memorial Service

I sat there a long time, but no one came.' our guess is he would expect the same turnout this time.

'None did, but it seems flawless that the memorial website allows people born in the future to attend the service. The late professor's ashes are set to be interred alongside other great scientists like Sir Isaac Newton and Charles Darwin.

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 June 2009, after "a party for time travelers", Professor Hawking said that the fact that she had no one was, is an experimental proof that time travel is impossible.

It was London travel blogger IanVisits who noticed that those born from 2019 to 2038 were theoretically permitted to attend the service at Westminster Abbey. "All things are possible until proven otherwise".

Republicans celebrate opening of US embassy in Jerusalem
The EFF added that the South African government was a key beneficiary of worldwide boycotts and "must take the lead". The Palestinian president, Mahmoud Abbas, called the new embassy "a United States settlement in East Jerusalem ".


The representative also indicated that, so far, about 12,000 applications have been received "from around the world", and jokingly stressed that they are "from around the world" since people "who believe that the Earth is flat" will not come.

As per the reports, people from the future might see the memorial event and want to attend it, which is why organisers are accepting applications from the people born two decades after the actual event. The physics professor said he put out the invitations after the event, with the thinking that if time travel was possible, people would leap back a few years to go to the party.

The world's most recognisable scientist died in March aged 76 after a lifetime spent probing the origins of the universe, the mysteries of black holes and the nature of time itself. The ceremony at Westminster Abbey will take place on June 15, for which Hawking's children are offering 1,000 free tickets to the public.

Now his family and foundation appear to have given time travellers another chance to honor the famous theoretical physicist by allowing them to attend the Thanksgiving service held for him next month in London.
