The Last Question

Since high school, I've dipped lightly into writing and short stories. Years ago, I created an outline for a science fiction story that involved the ultimate evolution of the human race, the end of the galaxy and mankind as we know it. The main point was that time was actually circular and an ending was really another beginning.

The story was not very good and I abandoned it at some point (and can't find the drafts now). In it's essence it bears a striking resemblance to a story already written years ago by Isaac Asimov that I just stumbled upon.

The last question was asked for the first time, half in jest, on May 21, 2061, at a time when humanity first stepped into the light. The question came about as a result of a five-dollar bet over highballs, and it happened this way...

Ponder The Last Question.
