Professor Stephen Hawking’s final research paper was submitted to the Journal of High-Energy Physics ten days before he died on March 14, 2018. In the paper, “A Smooth Exit from Eternal Inflation?“, Hawking and his co-author Thomas Hertog present a new multiverse theory with the implication that the Big Bang would not create just one universe, but an infinite number.
