Product Description

Was there a beginning of time? Could time run backwards? Is the universe infinite or does it have boundaries?

These are just probably the most questions considered in the internationally acclaimed masterpiece by the world renowned physicist – in most cases considered to have been probably the most world’s greatest thinkers. It begins by reviewing the great theories of the cosmos from Newton to Einstein, before delving into the secrets which still lie at the heart of space and time, from the Big Bang to black holes, via spiral galaxies and strong theory. To this day A Brief History of Time remains a staple of the scientific canon, and its succinct and clear language continues to introduce millions to the universe and its wonders.

This new edition includes recent updates from Stephen Hawking with his latest thoughts about the No Boundary Proposal and offers new information about dark energy, the information paradox, eternal inflation, the microwave background radiation observations, and the discovery of gravitational waves.

It was published in tandem with the app, Stephen Hawking’s Pocket Universe.

Stephen Hawking, one of the brilliant theoretical physicists in history, wrote the modern classic A Brief History of Time to help non-scientists keep in mind fundamental questions of physics and our existence: where did the universe come from? How and why did it begin? Will it come to an end, and if this is the case, how? Hawking attempts to care for these questions (and where we might look for answers) the usage of a minimum of technical jargon. A few of the topics gracefully covered are gravity, black holes, the Big Bang, the nature of time and physicists’ search for a grand unifying theory. This is deep science; the concepts are so vast (or so tiny) that they cause mental vertigo at the same time as reading, and one can’t help but marvel at Hawking’s ability to synthesize this difficult subject for people not used to thinking about things like alternate dimensions. The journey is certainly worth taking for as Hawking says, the reward of understanding the universe may be a glimpse of “the mind of God”. —Therese Littleton, Amazon.com
