The famous British physicist Stephen Hawking will be buried in Westminster Abbey. The farewell ceremony which is scheduled for June 15th will not only have family and friends of the scientist in attendance, but also 1,000 randomly selected guests. The Stephen Hawking Foundation launched a site dedicated to the event where you can submit an application, before May 15th, 2018, to participate in a drawing for an invitation to the event. In the questionnaire, you can specify a date of birth up until 2039, in case there is a time machine invented in the future and someone decides to return to the past to attend the ceremony. While it is not proved that time travel is impossible, organizers are sure it is impossible to exclude the possibility. However since the applications will be chosen randomly, a guest from the future may simply not be lucky and not receive an invitation.
Stephen Hawking devoted a lot of research to how the universe works and seriously considered the possibility of time travel. Once he conducted a comic experiment by inviting guests to a party after it ended.
The scientist died at his home in Cambridge on March 14th, 2018. Shortly before his death, Hawking finished his last scientific work on the nature of the universe. Together with his colleague Thomas Hertog, they more scientifically considered the idea of the multiverse. The concept of a multiverse with an infinite inflation of the Universe was developed in a paper from 1979, according to which bubbles were formed and ceased to expand after the Big Bang. Thus, an infinite number of multiverses appeared and the world we observe today is enclosed in one of these bubbles.
