So long and thanks for all the fish - Hitchhiker's Guide (HD)
Unfortunately, no one knows what the question is. Thus, to calculate the Ultimate Question, a special computer the size of a small planet was built from organic components and named "Earth". This appeared first in the radio play and later in the novelization of The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy.
In Douglas Adams' The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy , 42 is the number from which all meaning "the meaning of life, the universe, and everything" could be derived. You know, I've always felt that there was something fundamentally wrong with the Universe. Faint and distant voice: Base thirteen! For the literal-minded and those unfamiliar with terms like "base thirteen," this is a number system in which the number 10 is equivalent to our more familiar decimal A base number 42, therefore, is the same as four 13s plus 2, or decimal So "six by nine" six times nine or decimal 54 is, in base 13,
Douglas Adams said it was the answer to the meaning of life, the universe, and everything. He meant it as a joke, but a new book shows how the number 42 has played a significant role in history. When Douglas Adams wrote The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, he added a central joke which has become more famous over the years than the novel itself: "The answer to the ultimate question of life, the universe and everything is Now, in an attempt to cash in on their obsession, a new book published this week, Douglas Adams' Amazingly Accurate Answer to Life, the Universe and Everything, looks at real-life occurrences of the number The book is timed to coincide with the 10th anniversary of Adams's death this spring. Scores of adolescents have posited theories about significance of the number. The actor Stephen Fry claimed to know the true answer, but won't tell, saying he'll take it to his grave.
Who uses 42?
O n a Sunday in the spring of Douglas Adams was typing a letter. Keeping the idea safe, Adams hitched to Istanbul before returning to England for three years as a Cambridge student, where he became an underachieving comedy writer and performer. Eventually, though, his eureka moment in an alpine meadow would spark a remarkable phenomenon. And one original idea in The Hitchhiker's Guide to The Galaxy, first broadcast as a radio comedy in , has developed a life quite unlike any other joke, before or since. The plot for the six episodes leapt very much wherever Adams wanted to go on the day, but led to a pivotal gag that went like this; a giant computer called Deep Thought, having spent exactly 7. Adams — who died, aged 49, 10 years ago this May — had launched the world's greatest universal joke. Often you hear it as a simple namecheck, a gently conclusive "Douglas Adams", said whenever a spontaneous 42 is seen as a seat number, a restaurant table, or a homework answer.
One of the drawings found in an atomic fall out shelter on Jikthroom Beta , as seen in the opening of Episode 5 of the TV series. This Answer was first calculated by the supercomputer Deep Thought after seven and a half million years of thought. This shocking answer resulted in the construction of an even larger supercomputer, named Earth , which was tasked with determining what the question was in the first place. The Earth was destroyed by the Vogons five minutes before its ten-million year program was due to be completed. One of the only two humans who had survived the destruction of Earth, namely Arthur Dent , pulls random Scrabble tiles from a bag, so to reveal information in his unconscious Marvin announced that Arthur had the Question imprinted in his brainwaves.
