Acclaimed physicist and best-selling author Stephen Hawking’s final book is about to be released soon. His last book that he was working on before he died, titled Brief Answers to Big Questions, will be published by Hachette later this year. Hawking had passed away in March 2018.
Hachette India released a statement which reads- “The Stephen Hawking Estate announced that rights to a final book by the world famous theoretical physicist were sold to Nick Davies at John Murray (Hachette) for the Britain and the commonwealth including India; and to Bantam for North America.”
As the name suggests, Brief Answers to Big Questions will reveal Hawking’s answers to “the big questions of our time, everything from the creation of the universe, black holes, alien intelligence, and the existence of God, to the importance of space colonisation, and the perils and promise of artificial intelligence.
The legendary scientist and pop culture icon, who is known for his groundbreaking discoveries of the black holes and quantum mechanics, was diagnosed with ALS at age 21. Some of his other books includes A Brief History of Time, The Universe in a Nutshell, and On the Shoulders of Giants. When he died in March, at the age of 76, he was the longest living MND survivor.
