(Continued from page 1)

Hawking: I hope intelligent life exists in the universe. There’s not much sign of it on Earth.

A&S: Have you ever thought about writing a novel?

Hawking: I have just written a children’s book with my daughter Lucy. It is called George’s Secret Key to the Universe. It will be published in September.

A&S: Would you call yourself a religious or spiritual person?

Hawking: I’m not religious in the normal sense. I believe the universe is governed by the laws of science. The laws may have been decreed by God, but God does not intervene to break the laws.
