March 14, 2018, at the age of 76 years died the famous physicist, changed the attitude to science for millions of people around the world. On Saturday I opened the service, offering to issue a ticket to everyone to attend a memorial service for Stephen Hawking. Expect even travelers from the future. His ashes will be scattered on 15 June at London’s Westminster Abbey, on the tombs of the other giants of science – Isaac Newton and Charles Darwin.
Three children of a famous cosmologist, Robert, Lucy and Tim, offer up to 1,000 free tickets through the system of competitive distribution, which will get anyone to attend the funeral of Hawking, if they’re lucky. The applicants must specify the date of birth, however, keen fans of a man who devoted his life to unraveling the mysteries of the universe, I noticed that you can specify any date up to 31 December 2038. That is, for the funeral Hawking can (in theory) get people who are born more than twenty years now.
Of course, not without good jokes.
“One day Professor Hawking threw a party for time travelers, to see if somebody, if he will send the invitation after the party,” say the people. “Nobody came, but it seems wonderful that the memorial website allows people from the future to visit the service. Search for time travelers at the Abbey”.
Potential applicants – including those from the future warning to be raised if they can’t arrange their own transportation and obtain a visa. At the funeral, expect to see Hawking family, his friends and colleagues.
