People who are registering on a website to participate in a raffle and be able to attend the funeral of scientist Stephen Hawking have discovered that dates of birth are allowed until 2038, revealed blog author IanVisits. “We can not exclude the possibility of traveling through time because, to our satisfaction, it is not disproved,” a spokesman for the Stephen Hawking Foundation told the BBC. “Everything is possible until proven otherwise.” In the first 24 hours more than 12,000 people had signed up. “We have had candidates from all over the world,” the spokesperson said.
The ceremony will be held on June 15 at the Westminster Abbey in London, a tribute reserved for great figures, including scientists such as Isaac Newton.
Astrophysicist Stephen Hawking organized a party for future travelers in 2009 and in a video posted on YouTube he explained that he had sent the invitations but only when the event was over.
“I have experimental evidence that travel through time is impossible,” he said with humor, seeing that nobody had come to the party despite the fact that canapés and champagne were ready. “We can not exclude the possibility of traveling in time because, to our satisfaction, it is not disproved, “Stephen Hawking Foundation spokesman told the BBC. He stressed that “everything is possible until proven otherwise.”
In 2009, the astrophysicist organized a party for future travelers, however, no one attended the event.
“I have experimental evidence that travel through time is impossible,” Hawking himself joked. The ceremony will be held on June 15 at London’s Westminster Abbey, a tribute reserved for great figures, including scientists like Isaac. Newton.
In the church of the University of Cambridge, his eldest son Robert, his ex-student Fay Dowker and the astronomer Martin Rees gave speeches to a large congregation.
“Stephen shared his work and enthusiasm for life’s fundamental questions and shared them with broad audiences,” said Dowker, who defined the professor as his “teacher, mentor and friend.”
The funeral of the famous British astrophysicist Stephen Hawking, who died last week at age 76, will be celebrated on Saturday, March 31, at the University of Cambridge Church, according to his children announced Tuesday. The Great St Mary’s Church, the main one of this famous educational institution in the East of England, is very close to Gonville & Caius, the Cambridge faculty where the scientist taught for 52 years. In addition, as reported by several British media, the ashes of Professor Hawking will rest at the Westminster Abbey in London, near the tomb of the English physicist and mathematician Isaac Newton. His ashes will be buried during a thanksgiving service later this year, a spokesman for the abbey told the Evening Standard newspaper. Among the nearly 500 people present were astrophysicist Martin Rees, a colleague of Stephen Hawking, and the actor Eddie Redmayne, who won an Oscar for having incarnated the famous scientist in the film ‘A wonderful story of time’ in 2014.
Both participated in the reading of a text during the service, while their eldest son, Robert, and Professor Fay Dowker, one of their former students, had to pronounce the funeral compliments. In the same line the inventor of the web has manifested, Tim Berners-Lee, has highlighted in his Twitter account that the world “has lost a colossal mind and a wonderful spirit, Stephen Hawking, rest in peace.” On the other hand, physicist James Hartle, who worked with Hawking, has told the BBC that the physicist “inspired a lot of people” and that “he had a wonderful ability to see all the mess in physics and see what the points were “My memories about him would be on two fronts, first our work together as scientists and, second, as a human being, whose history is one of triumph in the face of adversity,” he said.
For many the theory also suggests the emergence of infinite parallel universes that make up a multiverse, but this had never been proven and could now be within reach.
The work of Hawking and Hertog points precisely to that in the near future, and if it had been done before the death of the first one, it would probably have earned him the Nobel prize for physics.
“He was nominated many times and should have won it, but now he can never do it,” Hertog told the British newspaper The Sunday Times. On March 14, one of the most influential scientists of the last half century passed away. When Stephen Hawking began his doctoral thesis at the University of Cambridge in 1962, general relativity and cosmology were still far from reaching their theoretical and experimental maturity. The Big Bang theory did not settle until 1964, with the discovery of the cosmic microwave background by Arno Penzias and Robert Wilson. It was not until 1965 that Roger Penrose revolutionized mathematical techniques in general relativity and established the first proof that holes contain singularities. The search for black holes did not begin until 1966, with the proposals of Yakov Zel’dovich and Igor Novikov to detect possible signals in binary systems. The name “black hole” (black hole) was not coined until 1967 by John Wheeler, with the purpose of visualizing the result of an extreme gravitational collapse: the production of a region of space-time where even light is trapped and no particle can escape.But Hawking said that those black holes were not really so black because, if the effects of quantum physics are taken into account, they emit a radiation by which they begin to evaporate until they disappear. That radiation contains the information that had previously “swallowed”, so if you can reach that moment, you could know the origin of everything. That radiation bears his name and was called “Hawking radiation”. To graph it, it would be like smoke, which contains the content of a paper that burned.
