According to technology website Ars Technica, Stephen Hawking, theoretical physicist and celebrated author of the Brief History of Time, has dismissed the possibility of time travel.

“I have experimental evidence that time travel is not possible,” he told journalists. “I gave a party for time-travellers, but I didn’t send out the invitations until after the party. I sat there a long time, but no one came.”

The party was ‘held’ on 28th June 2009.

Hawking said that Einstein’s theories offer the possibility of travelling backwards in time – but “it is likely that warping would trigger a bolt of radiation that would destroy the spaceship and maybe the space-time itself”.

Hawking even made the failed experiment available on YouTube:

smolin9: Earthlings still cling to such primitive interpretations of the laws of causality.
polkingbeal67: I know. They don’t seem to realise that the law is not absolute.
smolin9: Right. Like, for example, they observe that things usually fall to the ground when they release them from their hands…
polkingbeal67: …like Hawking’s invitation.
smolin9: Good example. What if a sudden gust of wind snatches it up and carries it up out of reach?
polkingbeal67: Is that what happened to your invitation? Did you know about the party?
smolin9: Yes, I got the invitation next week!
polkingbeal67: Did you go?
smolin9: No. I didn’t see any future in it.
