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.
In 1983 Professor Hawking published a paper describing how... But it does not rule out that in the meantime scientists will eventually be able to find alternative universes using spacecraft using special instruments.
Hawking's final work also has the depressing prediction that the universe will ultimately fade into blackness as stars simply run out of energy. According to the The Sunday Times, this new research, which is now under review by a Scientific publication, provides a way to test it through experiments. But the same theory also predicted a multiverse, meaning the Big Bang was not alone but accompanied by a number of other Big Bangs, thus creating separate universes.
"The intriguing idea in Hawking's paper is that [the universe] left its imprint on the background radiation permeating our universe and we could measure it with a detector on a spaceship."

Clearly, our Premier League status is a huge concern to us and we want to retain that and that is a big part of the remit I have. Hughes will be pleased to get a first win under his belt as he looks to save Southampton's league season after the global break.
Some researchers believe this recent paper could be a breakthrough, as it's the first theory that could be tested.
Herzog is certain Hawking would have taken home the award for contributions to the advancement of science, telling the Sunday Times: "He would have won it".
The paper sets out to prove the idea that our cosmos is only one of many universes, reports "The Sunday Times". Thomas Hertog expressed his sadness with the fact that Hawking wouldn't receive a Nobel due to the many reasons aforementioned.
Hawking's friend, cosmologist, astrophysicist and astronomer Royal Professor Martin Rees also dismissed knowing any such theory. But the physicist lived for more than a half century more, and in the ensuing time revolutionized theories around black holes and other fundamental features of the universe.
