When we lost the wonderful Stephen Hawking in March the whole world mourned the loss of a brilliant mind. One of the world’s most renowned scientists and brilliant thinkers, many of us had come to think he might be around forever but that was not to be.
Hawking wrote several books during his lifetime, and this week London based publisher John Murray announced that a final book from Hawking would be coming later this year with publication expected in October.
Brief Answers to Big Questions will include Hawking’s thoughts and discoveries on everything including the creation of the universe, black holes, alien intelligence, and the existence of God.
The release date has been announced so far as October 16th and fans of the author will be keen to get their hands on it. A portion of the book’s royalties will also go to the Motor Neuron Disease Association and the Stephen Hawking Foundation, so you’re helping a good cause too.
