At the funeral of Stephen Hawking invited “time travelers”
Astrophysicist Stephen Hawking died at the age of 77 in March 2018.
The The Stephen Hawking Foundation, which plays tickets to the memorial service of the scientist Stephen Hawking, has opened access for “time travelers”. People can apply for participation in the farewell ceremony with a famous physicist from 1918 to 2038.
The memorial service of Hawking will be held in Westminster Abbey on June 15. Applications for visiting the funeral of a physicist through filling out an online form on the site are accepted until May 15. Users will be selected through a contest – whether applicants will be able to part with a scientist, they will find out the next day after sending the questionnaire.
In the application you can specify the date of your birth – until December 31, 2038. And this is not a mistake, but a conscious invitation to the ceremony of “travelers in time.”
“We can not rule out the possibility that time travel is possible. Everything is possible, until the opposite is proven, “said the representative of the Stephen Hawking Foundation.
The organizers stressed that within 24 hours after the opening of the online recording more than 12 thousand people from 50 countries applied to participate in the farewell ceremony. Whether there are among them people who have been in the future is not yet reported.
In 2009, Hawking already organized a special “party for travelers in time.” But he had to have fun alone: the announcement of the event was published after the event, so that the deceivers could not visit it.
Stephen Hawking died March 14, 2018 at the age of 76 years. He will be buried on June 15 at Westminster Abbey next to the tombs of scientists Isaac Newton and Charles Darwin.
