Hawking's final paper points way to new worlds

Hawking's final paper points way to new worlds

This research paper also predicts the end of our universe and how it would eventually fade into blackness as all its stars run out of energy.

News of his final paper came as it emerged that Westminster Abbey has offered to hold a memorial service for the scientist.

The research paper co-authored by Thomas Hertog is titled "A Smooth Exit from Eternal Inflation".

In the paper, Hawking along with professor of theoretical physics at KU Leuven University, Belgium explored how these other universes can be found using a probe on a spaceship. It confronts an issue that had bothered the late British theoretical physicist since the 1983 "no-boundary" theory he devised with James Hartle, describing how the universe exploded into existence with the Big Bang. Hawking and Hertog explain that studying background radiation left behind from the Big Bang, or the very beginning of time, could answer many questions posed by those involved in this subject. It also predicted a multiverse which means the phenomenon was accompanied by several other "Big Bangs" creating separate universes.

A trustee of The Stephen Hawking Foundation dismissed Union minister Harsh Vardhan's claim that cosmologist Stephen Hawking said the Vedas have a theory superior to Albert Einstein's E=mc^2 equation, according to a report in The Telegraph.

The Sunday Times said the research lays out the math needed for a space probe to find experimental evidence for the existence of a "multiverse" - the theory that our cosmos is only one of many universes. However, Hertog says that he and Hawking had wanted to take the theory of the multiverse and make it into a "testable scientific framework". Nobel Prizes can not be awarded posthumously. He told the Sunday Times that he met with Hawking to obtain final approval before submitting the paper.

Stephen Hawking worked on the origin of the universe and black holes and has inspired millions of people across the world. Many cosmologists dispute this theory, including Professor Neil Turok, the director of Canada's Perimeter Institute. Even with the accurate calculations, the technology present now is unable to unravel the existence of parallel universes which is a well-renowned theory.
