Science lovers worldwide were rocked by news of the death of physicist Stephen Hawking in March. And it seems that the organizers of his memorial service exclude no one, not even those born in the future.
Hawking's funeral took place on March 31st in Cambridge, but now it's time for the final farewell – and the burial of the ashes.
The Thanksgiving Service for Stephen Hawking takes place at Westminster Abbey in London Friday, June 15, 2018.
There is a vote to win one of the 1,000 rooms that will be made available to the public and the applications are selected randomly.
London travel blogger IanVisits was the first to notice that everyone was born between the age of two. From 201
And there does not seem to be a mistake, according to the Stephen Hawking Foundation.
"We can not rule out the possibility of a time travel as it has not been disproved to our satisfaction," a spokesman for the Stephen Hawking Foundation told the BBC.
"Everything is possible until the contrary is proved."
It is only appropriate to take this into account when I think that in the past Hawking had to do with the idea of time travel.
While he did not believe that we could ever travel back in time (as opposed to the relatively simple task of the forward-time journey), he once hosted a time-travel party.
"I have experimental evidence that time travel is not possible," Hawking told reporters at the Seattle Science Festival 2012.
"I've given a time travel party, but I did not send the invitations until after I sat there for a long time, but nobody came. "
Stephen Hawking was often asked if time travel was possible. To test the theory, in 2009 he threw a champagne party with pitcher and hors d'oeuvres. But he sent the invitations long after they were done. No one appeared … #RIPstephenhawking pic.twitter.com/jGmQU0o8zD

Now it seems that the Stephen Hawking Foundation is willing to repeat this experiment despite the discouraging results by the professor himself.
And to be fair, in this case, it's probably better to be indulgent.
Hawking's ashes are buried between the tomb of Sir Isaac Newton, who was buried there in 1727, and the final resting place of Charles Darwin, who was buried in 1882.
If you want to be included in the ballot, you can register your data here. But you better be quick, because it closes tomorrow, May 15 – unless you're a time traveler, of course.
