Time travelers invited to Stephen Hawking send-off

Time travellers welcome to Stephen Hawking's memorial service

Users noticed with delight that the date of birth for entrants extended to December 31, 2038, thus allowing the possibility that time travellers could also attend.

The invitation read: "You are cordially invited to a reception for time travellers to be hosted by Professor Stephen Hawking".

Members of the public have been invited to apply for tickets to attend a celebration of Professor Stephen Hawking's life at a memorial service in Westminster Abbey here on June 15, with visitors from the future welcome to apply, local media reported on Monday.

Organizers have arranged a memorial service for the theoretical physicist, who died in March at the age of 76, and those who wish to honor him can apply for the event via a public ballot, the BBC reports.

'If time travel is possible, where are the tourists from the future?' Stephen Hawking asked in A Brief History Of Time.

Professor Hawking once threw a party for time travellers, to see if any would turn up if he posted the invite after the party.

"Professor Hawking once threw a party for time travelers, to check what would happen if he will publish the invitation after the event".

While it is unclear if the choice of years is deliberate, a spokesman for the Stephen Hawking Foundation said time travel had not yet been proven impossible.

'So far we have had applications from all round the world, and we do mean round - there are no flat-Earthers here'.

"Rapid space-travel, or travel back in time, can't be ruled out, according to our present understanding", Hawking said during a 1999 lecture entitled "Space and Time Warps", cautioning however against the "great logical problems" such a feat might engender". 'He said he combined his two favourite things - experiments and champagne - to put on this party'.

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

Within 24 hours of the opening of the ballot for the thanksgiving service, to be held on 15 June, about 12,000 people from more than 50 countries had applied for tickets.
