NO. 1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

Published more than two decades ago to great critical acclaim and commercial success, A Brief History of Time has become a landmark volume in science writing. Stephen Hawking, one of the great minds of our time, explores such profound questions as: How did the universe begin and what made its start possible? Does time always flow forward? Is the universe unending or are there boundaries? Are there other dimensions in space? What will happen when it all ends?

Told in language we all can understand, A Brief History of Time plunges into the exotic realms of black holes and quarks, of antimatter and arrows of time, of the big bang and a bigger God where the possibilities are wondrous and unexpected. With exciting images and profound imagination, Stephen Hawking brings us closer to the ultimate secrets at the very heart of creation.

Autorenporträt
Hawking, StephenStephen Hawking wurde am 8. Januar 1942 in Oxford geboren und ist am 14. März 2018 in Cambridge gestorben. Der Astrophysiker ist der berühmteste Wissenschaftler seiner Zeit. 1962 erfuhr der junge Student, dass er an einer unheilbaren Motoneuronen-Erkrankung litt und nur noch wenige Monate zu leben habe. Trotz dieser schrecklichen Diagnose setzte er seine Studien fort und ging an die Universität Cambridge, wo ihm freie Hand für seine einflussreichen Arbeiten insbesondere über Schwarze Löcher gegeben wurde. Dreißig Jahre lang, von 1979 bis 2009, war er "Lucasischer Professor für Mathematik" im Fachbereich für angewandte Mathematik und theoretische Physik, ein Lehrstuhl, den in der zweiten Hälfte des 17. Jahrhunderts Isaac Newton innehatte. Für seine Beiträge zur modernen Kosmologie hat er zahlreiche Auszeichnungen erhalten, darunter 2009 die US Presidential Medal of Freedom und 2013 den Special Fundamental Physics Prize. Hawking war Mitglied der Royal Society und der US National Academy of Sciences.Kober, HainerHainer Kober, geboren 1942, lebt in Soltau. Er hat u.a. Werke von Stephen Hawking, Steven Pinker, Jonathan Littell, Georges Simenon und Oliver Sacks übersetzt.
Rezensionen
This app/book version of Hawking's famous laymen book is just an amazing piece of learning. This makes much more accessible and understandable the complex and awesome topics dealt by Hawking as he explains how our universe works. I am just in awe at how creative he is to produce one of a kind e-book like this. The pace, illustrations and connections of topics within the book are so helpful and so appropriate for the new generation used to tweets and small bites of information. You can flip over some topics when you have some time, learn some amazing fact, and come back later which no rush or worry about how fast you are progressing through the book. Hope other books on complex topics are translated to this format. And I love the updates of the latest science since the publication of the original book. We have learned so much in the last decade that I agree with Hawking, it is an honour to live in this times. Ribozyme 20161201
