Time travellers invited to Stephen Hawking’s memorial service

If any time travellers out there are checking out life in 2018, now is the time to make yourselves known. The family of the late Stephen Hawking have specifically invited mysterious figures traversing through time to a memorial service for the physicist. 
It will take place at Westminster Abbey on June 15 – so set your time machines to June 14 2018, and you’ll be there right on time. But it’s not just time travellers who can pick up an invite, as members of the public can apply for tickets to the celebration too. Anyone wishing to apply must fill in a form and state their date of birth, which can be any day up to the end of 2038.


The invitation to people who have not even been born yet was spotted by blogger ianvisits. He wrote: ‘Professor Hawking once threw a party for time travellers, to see if any would turn up if he posted the invite after the party. ‘None did, but it seems perfect that the memorial website allows people born in the future to attend the service. Look out for time travellers at the Abbey.’ Sarah Bridle, a professor of Astrophysics at the University of Manchester, told BBC Radio that Hawking had remained curious about the potential for time travel, even after his party in 2009.


She said: ‘He was curious and he had a great sense of humour. He said he combined his two favourite things, experiments and champagne to put on this party.’ The scientist, who died at 76, is renowned for his pioneering work on the origins of the universe and black holes.


But time travel remained a curiosity that one of the finest minds of the modern era could not crack. His ashes will be interred alongside the graves of Isaac Newton and Charles Darwin at next month’s memorial service.
