Stephen Hawking's family invite TIME TRAVELLERS to the scientist's memorial service

Stephen Hawking's family invite TIME TRAVELLERS to the scientist's memorial service

Renowned physicist Stephen Hawking, who passed away in March, is set to be interred in Westminster Abbey in June.

His ashes will be interred by the graves of fellow scientific giants Isaac Newton and Charles Darwin.

The organizers of the ceremony the memory of physicist Stephen Hawking gave an opportunity to the people of the future to register for participation.

This is either another one of Hawking's clever time traveler experiments, or just a mere computer error called the Year 2038 problem, which was similar in nature to the Y2K scare in the year 2000.

Prof Hawking, who died in March this year aged 76, held a party for time travellers in 2009.

The late scientist Stephen Hawking once threw a party for time travellers - although no one turned up.

"We can not exclude the theoretical possibility of time travel, as it has not been satisfactorily ruled out".

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. "Anything is possible until proven otherwise", said one representative of the Stephen Hawking Foundation. "None did, but it seems flawless that the memorial website allows people born in the future to attend the service".

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. If you want the chance to attend his memorial, the ballot closes at midnight tomorrow on 15 May, so get your applications in now - unless you're a time traveller, then you have all the time in the world.

In January past year, Prof Hawking posted a touching tribute to his family, friends and others who have "helped and supported me along the way and made my universe so full of life, love and energy". 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.
