The Last Question (Asimov)

August 11th, 2009 at 06:50pm dark

An afternoon started by reading an Asimov short story is always an interesting one.

Today I read (by chance) The Last Question, a story about a fictional computer, called Multivac, to which several men, in different stages of the human technological development, ask questions about the death of the Solar System, of the other stars and the rest of the Universe.

If you want, you can ask Multivac the same question, but I don’t think you’ll have an answer different from:

INSUFFICIENT DATA FOR MEANINGFUL ANSWER.
