In this photo from February 25, 2012, Professor Stephen Hawking poses next to a lamp titled "black hole light" presented to him during his visit to the Science Museum in London. A service will be held for him in the same city this June. Hawking, whose brilliant mind moved through time and space, though his body was paralyzed by illness, died in March 2018.

The ashes of Stephen Hawking will be buried this June at Westminster Abbey. He will take his place among the giants – between Sir Isaac Newton and Charles Darwin. Applications for a Thanksgiving service are open to the public, and anyone – including those born in 2038 – can apply. Thousand rooms are available.

Hawking was a theoretical physicist who, with his early work on black holes, changed the way scientists think about the universe. He died in March 2018 and was probably the most famous scientist of the present – partly for his work, but also for his prevalence in pop culture. Hawking used a wheelchair and voice synthesizer because of his significant disabilities from ALS or Lou Gehrigs disease.

The time delay in the memorial service application was first discovered by London blogger IanVisits. He writes on his blog that Hawking once hosted a time travel party and sent invitations after the party to see if anyone would turn up. Spoiler: No one yet.

Hawking said the fact that no one showed up at the party in June 2009 is "experimental evidence that time travel is not possible," according to the BBC.

Registrations close on May 15 at midnight.
