Stephen Hawking's last paper predicts parallel universes


Recommended Posts

Physicist Stephen Hawking's last scientific paper, submitted on March 4, predicts the end of the universe and the existence of parallel universes, co-author Thomas Hertog said.


March 19 (UPI) -- Physicist Stephen Hawking worked up to his death last week and submitted a paper on the end of the universe, his co-author said.


Hawking's scientific paper "A Smooth Exit from Eternal Inflation," written with Thomas Hertog of Belgium's Leuven University, was revised from a July 2017 draft and submitted on March 4. Hawking died Wednesday at age 76.


The paper is archived by Cornell University's Arxiv.org and is under scholarly review. It offers a mathematical procedure for someday testing the theory of the existence of an infinite number of universes, known as the Multiverse Theory. It suggests that the universe we know will end when the stars run out of energy. It also theorizes that alternate universes could be found using probes on spacecraft.


Hertog said Sunday that the theory, if provable, could have led to a Nobel Prize for Hawking. The world's highest-profile physicist until his death, the wheelchair-bound Hawking appeared as himself on the television programs Star Trek, The Simpsons and the Big Bang Theory.

Quite an interesting theory I'm hearing from some time now.


The question is, if the universe is infinite and constantly expanding as Albert suggested, then how much possible is this.


Another thing to mentioned is that once someone asked somewhere that is there matter everywhere in the universe, to which someone mentioned that no, there might be a place where matter will not continue to exist or has not reached there, it's just space. So I wonder if multi-universe theory considers multi-universe in a single space what we know here.
