Speaking about the paper, it discusses the possibilities of the multiverse theory and how we can gather data of its existence bundled in a mathematical expression.
The paper's title, 'A Smooth Exit from Eternal Inflation,' refers to an element of Hawking's "no-boundary" theory, in which he proposed that our universe expanded from a tiny point after the Big Bang.
Iconic physicist Stephen Hawking's final scientific paper sets out the maths for a space probe to find experimental proof of the "multiverse" theory, the idea that our cosmos is just one of many universes. The Times reports that, should evidence of the multiverse be found using the methods laid out in the paper, the authors would likely become candidates for the Nobel prize. "Now he never can".
He died at the age of 76 on the 14th of March, 2018, after many awards and for his seminal works in science. He explained that the Big Bang event, which most physicists agree created our universe, resulted an infinite number of other "big bangs", each producing their own universe in turn. He told the Sunday Times that he met with Hawking to obtain final approval before submitting the paper.
In her, according to the British press, Hawking predicts that our universe will end when the stars run out of energy.

This idea, that everything will fade into blackness, isn't agreed upon by other scientists; but the fact that Hawking has presented it as a testable theory could change that. Scientists said it is the first such theory that could actually be tested in experiments.
Mr Hawking was diagnosed with Motor Neurone Disease at just 22 and was told by doctors that he didn't have long to live.
The idea of a dying universe, though, has remained controversial with cosmologists like Hawking's friend Neil Turok, director of Canada's Perimeter Institute.
As The Times notes, the discovery of a parallel universe (if it ever does happen) will undoubtedly be worthy of top scientific honors, meaning a Nobel Prize.
