Brief Answers to the Big Questions: Stephen Hawking’s final book on Wednesday 17th October 2018

This October sees publication of the final book by Stephen Hawking: world-famous cosmologist, number one bestselling author of A Brief History of Time and one of the greatest minds of our time. The book, which Stephen Hawking was working on at the time of his death, is drawn from his extraordinary personal archive and has been completed in collaboration with his academic colleagues, his family and the Stephen Hawking Estate. In one of only two public events to celebrate publication, a panel of Hawking’s peers and other distinguished academics will be contemplating and celebrating his work, his legacy and discussing his – and their – answers to the Big Questions including Can We Predict the Future? Is there a God? Will we Survive on Earth? And Will AI Outsmart Us?

With Sumit Paul-Choudhury (strategy director and editor emeritus at New Scientist), Dallas Campbell (author and broadcaster), Bernard Carr (Professor of Mathematics and astronomy, QMUL), Roger Highfield (author, science journalist, broadcaster and director of external affairs at the Science Museum Group) and Nigel Peake (Head of DAMTP, University of Cambridge). More guests tbc.

Join us for a landmark, unmissable evening.
