Om forfatteren

Stephen William Hawking was born in Oxford, England on January 8, 1942. He received a first class honors degree in natural science from Oxford University and a Ph.D. from Cambridge University. He was a theoretical physicist and has held the post of Lucasian Professor of Mathematics at Cambridge vis mere University from 1982 until his death. In 1974, he was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society, the world's oldest scientific organization. In 1963, he learned he had amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, a neuromuscular wasting disease also known as Lou Gehrig's disease. The disease confined him to a wheelchair and reduced his bodily control to the flexing of a finger and voluntary eye movements, but left his mental faculties untouched. He became a leader in exploring gravity and the properties of black holes. He wrote numerous books including A Brief History of Time: From the Big Bang to Black Holes, Black Holes and Baby Universes, On the Shoulders of Giants, A Briefer History of Time, The Universe in a Nutshell, The Grand Design, and Brief Answers to the Big Questions. In 1982, he was named a commander of the British Empire. A film about his life, The Theory of Everything, was released in 2014 and was based on his first wife Jane Hawking's book Traveling to Infinity: My Life with Stephen. He died on March 14, 2018 at the age of 76. (Bowker Author Biography) vis mindre

Maths in here is definitely in the deep end.

A very nice book, easy to read, but explains very well some of the big ideas in physics. I particularly liked his discussion about AI concerns, survival of the human species and space exploration!

Hawking’s vast knowledge of the universe has always been fascinating to me, and it deeply captivated me when I first read this book several years ago. As a beginner in astronomy, I had much to learn, but that didn’t discourage me. Instead, it only encouraged me to delve deeper into the subject.

Many years later, this book fell into my hands again. And well, who am I to deny Stephen Hawking my full attention?

With each passing year, my appreciation for this book has only grown. Stephen Hawking was a remarkable theoretical physicist, cosmologist, and author, known for his contributions to physics and his ability to explain complex concepts in a way anyone could understand. Until his death, he made significant contributions to physics despite his physical limitations, and his legacy continues to inspire millions...
