Produktbeschreibung
Was there a beginning of time? Could time run backwards? Is the universe infinite or does it have boundaries? These are just some of the questions considered in the internationally acclaimed masterpiece by the world renowned physicist - generally considered to have been one of the 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.

Autorenporträt
Stephen Hawking, geboren 1942 in Oxford, Großbritannien ist Astrophysiker und seit 1979 Inhaber des Lucasischen Lehrstuhls für Mathematik und Theoretische Physik an der Universität Cambridge, den einst auch Sir Isaac Newton inne hatte. Er lieferte bedeutende Arbeiten zur Kosmologie, wobei seine Forschung vor allem auf dem Gebiet der Physik der Schwarzen Löcher angesiedelt ist. 1963 wurde bei Hawking Amyotrophe Lateralsklerose (ALS) diagnostiziert und er ist seit 1968 auf einen Rollstuhl angewiesen. Durch einen Luftröhrenschnitt 1985 verlor er die Fähigkeit zu sprechen und ist für die verbale Kommunikation auf die Benutzung eines Sprachcomputers angewiesen. Stephen Hawking veröffentlichte seit den 70er Jahren zahlreiche wissenschaftliche Werke und zählt zu den weltweit renommiertesten Wissenschaftlern, die auf dem Gebiet der Astrophysik forschen. Durch "Eine kurze Geschichte der Zeit" ist er auch einem breiten Publikum außerhalb der Fachwelt bekannt geworden.
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
