Who Would You Invite to a Party for Time Travelers?

Stephen Hawking is one of the most brilliant minds of our time, with contributions to science that remain just impressive today as they were decades ago.

Whereas some elite in the academic and scientific communities disagree with simplifying their complex findings for the general public, Hawking is an advocate of sharing and explaining even the most difficult of subjects in layman’s terms so that the population at large can try and understand.

For example, Hawking recently went so far as to disprove the possibility of backwards time travel. How did he do that? By having a time traveler party, of course.

The only catch is, no one showed up!

In a press conference at the Seattle Science Festival, Stephen Hawking explained a failed foray he had made into the realm of time travel.

As Hawking explained, he held a party for time travelers on June 28, 2009 at Cambridge University. There was just one catch: he didn’t invite anybody.
