"A Brief History of Time, published in 1988, was a landmark volume in science writing and in world-wide acclaim and popularity, with more than 9 million copies in print globally. The original edition was on the cutting edge of what was then known about the origins and nature of the universe. But the ensuing years have seen extraordinary advances in the technology of observing both the micro- and the macrocosmic world--observations that have confirmed many of Hawking's theoretical predictions in the first edition of his book. Now a decade later, this edition updates the chapters throughout to document those advances, and also includes an entirely new chapter on Wormholes and Time Travel and a new introduction. It make vividly clear why "A Brief History of Time has transformed our view of the universe. --Este texto se refiere a la edición kindle_edition .. Stephen Hawking's A Brief History of Time has become an international publishing phenomenon. Translated into thirty languages, it has sold over nine million copies worldwide and lives on as a science book that continues to captivate and inspire new readers each year. When it was first published in 1988 the ideas discussed in it were at the cutting edge of what was then known about the universe. In the intervening ten years there have been extraordinary advances in the technology of observing both the micro- and macro-cosmic world. Indeed, during that time cosmology and the theoretical sciences have entered a new golden age. Professor Hawking is one of the major scientists and thinkers to have contributed to this renaissance. In this special, fully updated edition, which marks the tenth anniversary of the book's original ground-breaking publication, Professor Hawking has included the most recent developments in the field, many of which were forecast by him. He has also written a new introduction as well as an additional chapter on wormholes and time travel. A Brief History of Time has rightly been hailed as the publishing sensation of the past decade and is surely destined to become one of the greatest classics of science writing. --Este texto se refiere a la edición kindle_edition .. 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 'Master of the Universe...One scientist's courageous voyage to the frontiers of the Cosmos', Newsweek 'This book marries a child's wonder to a genius's intellect. We journey into Hawking's universe, while marvelling at his mind', The Sunday Times 'He can explain the complexities of cosmological physics with an engaging combination of clarity and wit...His is a brain of extraordinary power', Observer 'To follow such a fine mind as it exposes such great problems is an exciting experience', The Sunday Times --Este texto se refiere a la edición paperback.. STEPHEN HAWKING was a brilliant theoretical physicist and is generally considered to have been one of the world's greatest thinkers. He held the position of Lucasian Professor of Mathematics at the University of Cambridge for thirty years and is the author of A Brief History of Time which was an international bestseller. His other books for the general reader include A Briefer History of Time, the essay collection Black Holes and Baby Universe, The Universe in a Nutshell, The Grand Design, and Black Holes: The BBC Reith Lectures. He died on 14 March, 2018. --Este texto se refiere a la edición paperback.. 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.
Libro para amantes de la Física y con conocimientos básicos de la materia Mi hijo, destinatario y solicitante del libro, piensa que es un libro que hay que leerse. Pero hay que tener en cuenta que esta estudiando física. Por lo que me comenta no se trata de un libro divulga tico para quien no tiene ciertas nociones básicas, aunque no hace falta ser fisico para comprenderlo. Desconozco si existe en español, porque me lo pidió en inglés, para matar dos pájaros de un tiro.
Estupendo Libro Divulgativo y apto para mejorar inglés! Es apto para cualquier público. Gran científico. Libro con rigor. Recomiendo su compra para cualquier.
Magnifica obra A quien le interese la astronomía, la ciencia en general e incluso la ciencia ficción, es una obra imprescindible.
La forma tan clara y concisa de explicarlo todo Me gusta la física y el uniberso. Lo lei con gusto. Aprendí cosas nuevas y me aclaré en otras. Genial!!
muy bien ok
Superb Required reading. A very inspiring book. Un libro sensacional, con explicaciones amenas de conceptos complejos que parece ser que rigen el comportamiento del universo
Excepcional Excepcional como siempre. Una profunda revisión de los conceptos de física teórica explicando al detalle cada pasaje de la materia
New It's new and it arrived very quickly
Gran lectura para amantes de la Ciencia El contenido es muy divulgativo y es fácilmente comprensible sin necesitar tener conocimientos previos. Muy recomendable y de lectura muy amena. Joder, leedlo ya.
