Ten Hawking's predictions, which he left in the book after his death
The last work of Stephen Hawking, which addresses issues such as the existence of God or the possibility of time travel, was presented on Monday his children, who tried to finish the book after the British giant astrophysics death. Hawking was always asked about the same things, so he began work on "The short answer to the big questions" in the last year, but did not finish it until his death in March at the age of 76 years. Book completed family and academics, colleagues physics, taking materials out of his own personal archive.
"He was constantly asked about the same," says his daughter Lucy Hawking.
Hawking's latest book
In this book, physicist tried to "bring the most accurate, clear, understandable answers he gave."
"It is a pity that he does not see it right now," laments daughter.
Hawking, chained to the youth to a wheelchair due to illness, devoted his life to the mysteries of the universe. Of particular popularity brought him a book in 1988, "A Brief History of Time." He gained fans outside the world of astrophysics and encourage people to think about the very foundations of life. Answers to some questions he himself left in his latest book.
The big questions
Ten questions that tried to answer Hawking, were as follows:
- Does God exist?
- How it all began?
- What is a black hole?
- Can we predict the future?
- Can there be time travel?
- Will we be able to survive on Earth?
- Are there other intelligent life in the universe?
- Should we colonize space?
- Do we have the artificial intelligence will surpass?
- How do we shape the future?
In his book, Hawking said that people have no other option but to leave the Earth, otherwise they risk being "destroyed".
He says that computers will surpass humans in intelligence over the next 100 years, but "we need to make sure that the computers are targets agreed with our".
Hawking says that the human race has improved their mental and physical properties, but genetically modified race of supermen, possessing an excellent memory and immunity to disease, will surpass the rest.
He believed that by the time people understand what is happening with climate change may already be too late. Hawking says that the simplest explanation is that God does not exist, and that there is no conclusive evidence of the existence after death, although people can continue to live under the influence.
In the next 50 years, according to Hawking, we begin to understand how to begin a life and may open an existing elsewhere in the universe life.
"He was deeply concerned that while the problems are global, we become more local in their thinking," said Lucy Hawking. "This is a call for unity, humanity, bring yourself and challenge the problems that lie ahead of us."
In his final scientific paper Hocking sheds light on the black hole information paradox and; new work also calculates the entropy of black holes.
