You may expect some time travelers at Stephen Hawking's memorial service

Those wishing to apply have to fill in a form and state their date of birth, which can be any day up to the end of 2038.

"Look out for time travellers at the abbey".

The burial ceremony of the ashes of the physicist Stephen Hawking was allowed to visit the time travelers - on the website, declarer tickets for the event can register people born before 31 December 2038.

The theoretical physicist who captured the imagination of millions around the world died on March 14 at the age of 76.

So far, all applicants are from the present, the Stephen Hawking Foundation said.

In 2009, Hawking threw a party for time travelers.

One of the most endearing stories about the late Stephen Hawking was when he put out an invite to time travellers to attend a party of his - but no one came.


To pay tribute to the legendary theoretical physicist, scientists are now conducting an experiment on time travel where they are inviting time travellers from the future to attend the June memorial service for Stephen Hawking which will also feature almost thousand people from the present world.

He once jokingly suggested people should "invent time travel" if they wanted to address questions or complaints to his "younger self", so it is hardly surprising that time travellers might well attend Prof Stephen Hawking's memorial service. Up to 1,000 places are available at the Service of Thanksgiving, although entering your details does not guarantee you a place.

Hawking's foundation said that the possibility of time travel has not yet been disproven, so it can not be excluded. "So I've combined two of my favorite things to see if time travel from the future to the past is possible". "But so far we have had applications from all round the world, and we do mean round there are no flat-earthers here", the foundation statement added.

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

"I like simple experiments - and champagne", Hawking said at the time.

"I sat there a long time, but no one came", Prof Hawking told reporters in 2012.

Within 24 hours after the ballot was opened for the service, slated for June 15, around 12,000 people from over 50 countries had applied.
