Isaac Asimov – The Last Question

Wonderful reading of one of Isaac Asimov‘s most famous short stories, “The Last Question“. From wiki: “The story deals with the development of computers called Multivacs and their relationships with humanity through the courses of seven historic settings, beginning in 2061. In each of the first six scenes a different character presents the computer with the same question; namely, how the threat to human existence posed by the heat death of the universe can be averted.

It’s an interesting story, taking about heat death and entropy, and whether entropy can be reversed. The answer?

“INSUFFICIENT DATA FOR MEANINGFUL ANSWER.” Onwards!
