Stephen Hawking on Time Travel

In 1995, with their forthcoming 15th anniversary issue in mind, The Face magazine approached Stephen Hawking and asked him for a time travel formula. They soon received the following response by fax.

 From: Sue Masey, Personal Assistant to Professor S W Hawking
 To: Johnny Davis

 Number of pages: 1 (Including this one)

 Date 6 April 1995

 Thank you for your recent fax. I do not have any equations for time travel. If I had, I would win the National Lottery every week.

  1. ...not to be too tacky,...but if Mr. Hawking did in fact have the formula for time travel,..would he not have been able to step back or forth in time and fix his illness, the related symptoms,... and of course,..eventually being able to provide the formula he was asked about? From Mr. Hawking's viewpoint,....lot of different perspectives on this one,...

  2. This is "an amazing fact in news"? Really? There are no equations for time travel is an amazing fact?

  3. They are obviously not taking into account 'Relativistic Time Dilation'
    which indeed is a form or time travel, but only into the future
