People who aren’t born yet, and those who will not be born for next 20 years are invited to the memorial service of the renowned scientist and physicist Stephen Hawking passed away on March 14, 2018 – because the invitees, Stephen Hawking Foundation can simply not exclude the possibility of time travel.

There is a form available on The Stephen Hawking Foundation’s website, which are required to be filled to receive an invitation ticket to Stephen Hawking’s memorial service that will be held on June 15, 2018 at the Westminster Abbey in London. Of the innumerable applicants, only 1000 selected people will be able to attend Hawking’s memorial service when his remains will be buried forever alongside other greats like Sir Isaac Newton and Charles Darwin. Here’s the catch – the memorial service might host people from the future being present to commemorate someone who passed away in the recent past. Yep, people of future are invited.

Here’s how we came to know – the application form to get the ticket of Hawking’s memorial service includes an option for applicants born between 2019 and 2038. So the people who are not born yet (or are they, but not for us?!) and who won’t be born for another 20 years are welcomed to the service. About this, the foundation clarified that they simply “cannot exclude the possibility of time travel, as it has not been disproven to our satisfaction. All things are possible until proven otherwise.” While there has been no entry submitted from people of the future, but the foundation hopes that some curious future humans will ride the wormhole time machines to attend the memorial service.

Perhaps this isn’t the first time that the future humans are invited to an event of present; in fact, Hawking himself threw a party for time travellers on June 28, 2009. While nobody turned up to attend the party, but the physicist said that copies of the invitation of that party will survive in one form or another for many thousands of years. Maybe someday, someone living in the future will find the invitation and use that wormhole to time travel into past and attend Hawking’s party or the memorial service proving that time travel will, one day, be possible.
