Stephen Hawking Submitted Paper Days Before His Death

Hawking’s new theory could be tested in experiments

Hawking’s new theory could be tested in experiments

The research paper predicted how the universe would eventually die when the stars run out of energy, but said humans could use probes to find new universes to inhabit, according to The Sun.

According to The Sunday Times newspaper, the paper is due to be published by an unnamed "leading journal" after a review is complete.

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

Some researchers believe this recent paper could be a breakthrough, as it's the first theory that could be tested. Hawking's and Professor James Hartle together had worked on "no boundary theory" in 1983, where they have described how the Earth dashed into existence during the Big Bang. The idea on which this mathematically calculated paper is relying, depicts that a space probe would need to gather evidence regarding the existence of a parallel universe.

But Hawking was bothered by the fact that the theory also posits that the event was accompanied by an infinite number of other "Big Bangs", each resulting in a separate universe. 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.


However, since Nobel Prizes can not be awarded posthumously, Hawking would be ineligible to receive it.

Malcolm Perry, who is also a professor of theoretical physics at the University of Cambridge, said in an email response: "I am not aware of Stephen Hawking making any comment on the Vedas".

Hertog reportedly met with Hawking in the weeks before his death, discussing the paper and getting his approval of the final edits before final submission. Even with the accurate calculations, the technology present now is unable to unravel the existence of parallel universes which is a well-renowned theory.

The report claims that "he came up with the idea that black holes have a temperature", and this is affirmed by Jonathan McDowell, an astrophysicist at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics. Professor Neil Turok, the director of Canada's Perimeter Institute, was confused why Hawking found the theory appealing.
