Breakthrough Discovery is one of the goals in Futurama: Worlds of Tomorrow.

Part 1

Description[edit source]

Stephen Hawking conducts Hypnowave experiments.

Objectives

Rewards[edit source]

  • 500 Nixonbucks 250 XP

Story[edit | edit source]

Fry I remember you! You're Stephen Hawking, the supergenius physicist. What are you doing here?

Stephen Hawking I'm observing the Hypnowaves to understand them better.

Fry So you can help us get rid of them?

Stephen Hawking No, I'm only interested in understanding them and writing a paper. You want them fixed, hire a supergenius engineer.


Stephen Hawking The Hypnowaves are tearing the universe apart bit by bit. If something isn't done soon, this could mean the end of existence as we know it.

Fry Are you sure?

Stephen Hawking There's always the possibility of an error in my calculations.

Stephen Hawking That was sarcasm, you know.


Part 2

Description[edit source]

Stephen Hawking and the Professor disagree.

Objectives

Rewards[edit source]

  • 500 Nixonbucks 250 XP

Story[edit | edit source]

The Professor Stephen Hawking?! Who invited you?

Stephen Hawking The city of New New York. Mayor Poopenmeyer wants me to study the Hypnowaves.

Stephen Hawking I'm told that you're responsible, Farnsworth. It was your mistake that caused them.

The Professor I was under a toad's influence. It could happen to anyone!


Stephen Hawking The Hypnowaves constitute the biggest threat humanity has ever faced.

The Professor I disagree. Climate change is the biggest threat.

Stephen Hawking You're only saying that because you're responsible for the Hypnowaves.

The Professor I resent that! I'm responsible for a lot of climate change too!


Part 3

Description[edit source]

Stephen Hawking runs some tests.

Objectives

Rewards[edit source]

  • 500 Nixonbucks 250 XP

Story[edit | edit source]

Stephen Hawking I'll be running some Hypnowave tests. Would you mind helping me lift some heavy machinery?

Bender Sure. Anything to help a celebrity.

Stephen Hawking I prefer to think of myself as a respected scientist.

Bender Sure, whatever. As long as you mention my name on camera, I'll call you whatever you want.


Stephen Hawking Fascinating. The Hypnowaves are tearing through the universe faster than I thought possible.

Bender How fast? Is it time to abandon all social norms and start looting?

Stephen Hawking No, no, no. This is no time to panic.

Bender Too late! You've planted the seeds of fear and I've responded accordingly.


Part 4

Description[edit source]

Stephen Hawking goes viral.

Objectives

Rewards[edit source]

  • 500 Nixonbucks 250 XP

Story[edit | edit source]

Fry What are you gonna do with your experimental results?

Stephen Hawking Report them to as many people as possible. I've already scheduled a press conference. How do I look?

Fry Pretty good, I guess.

Stephen Hawking Good. Now help me practice turning dramatically from one camera to another.


Stephen Hawking My Hypnowave press conference has gone viral. It already has a million views.

Fry That was fast. It took my groin-kick video five weeks to reach a million views.

Fry I guess I shouldn't complain. After all, I still have a groin and you don't.

Stephen Hawking Spare me your pity. My groin was only holding me back.


Part 5

Description[edit source]

Stephen Hawking issues warnings.

Objectives

Rewards[edit source]

  • 500 Nixonbucks 250 XP

Story[edit | edit source]

Stephen Hawking I've reached a remarkable conclusion: the pace at which Hypnowaves are engulfing the universe violates everything we think we know about physics.

Amy That's terrible news!

Stephen Hawking Not for me. It virtually guarantees me a whole slew of science awards.


Stephen Hawking I've done my part as far as understanding the nature of the Hypnowaves. The rest is up to you.

The Professor But how do we stop them from spreading?

Stephen Hawking Beats me. Looks like the whole universe is going to hell in a handbasket.

Stephen Hawking The good news is, I've just finished building an emergency universe in my garage. So long, suckers.
