The possibility of time travel was also a key interest of Hawking's, and in 2009 he ran a quirky experiment to test the idea.

"None did, but it seems ideal that the memorial website allows people born in the future to attend the service".

"We can not exclude the possibility of time travel as it has not been disproven to our satisfaction", a spokesperson for the Foundation told the BBC.

Members of the public have been given a chance to apply for a public ballot and also have the option of choosing a birth date any time up until December 31, 2038 in their online applications.

His ashes are being interred on June 15 at London's Westminster Abbey, by the graves of fellow scientific giants Isaac Newton and Charles Darwin.

However, London travel blogger IanVisits has noted that it seems "perfect that the memorial service allows people born in the future to attend the service".

Anwar's release to be 'slightly' delayed
Anwar's prison sentence ends June 8, but without a royal pardon he would be barred from politics for five years. He has been in hospital for a few months recovering from a shoulder operation.

Organizers have arranged a memorial service for the theoretical physicist, who died in March at the age of 76, and those who wish to honor him can apply for the event via a public ballot, the BBC reports.

"Everything is possible until proven otherwise".

He once jokingly suggested people should "invent time travel" if they wanted to address questions or complaints to his "younger self", so it is hardly surprising that time travellers might well attend Prof Stephen Hawking's memorial service. "And we really do mean ball - supporters of the theory of a flat Earth is not here", said the Fund.

The late scientist Stephen Hawking once threw a party for time travellers - although no one turned up. The physics professor said he put out the invitations after the event, with the thinking that if time travel was possible, people would leap back a few years to go to the party.

"I sat there a long time, but no one came", Prof Hawking told reporters in 2012. The ceremony at Westminster Abbey will take place on June 15, for which Hawking's children are offering 1,000 free tickets to the public.

"Look out for time travellers at the Abbey", the blogger said.
