Livres de Stephen Hawking
Retraçant les grandes théories du cosmos, de Galilée et Newton à Einstein et Poincaré, racontant les avancées prodigieuses de la recherche sur l’espace et le temps, expliquant la nature des trous noirs, il propose de relever le plus grand défi de la science moderne : la quête d’une théorie unitaire unifiant la relativité générale et la mécanique quantique.
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 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.
'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
THE NO.1 SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER
'A beautiful little book by a brilliant mind' DAILY TELEGRAPH
'Effortlessly instructive, absorbing, up to the minute and - where it matters - witty' GUARDIAN
The world-famous cosmologist and #1 bestselling author of A Brief History of Time leaves us with his final thoughts on the universe's biggest questions in this brilliant posthumous work.
Is there a God?
How did it all begin?
Can we predict the future?
What is inside a black hole?
Is there other intelligent life in the universe?
Will artificial intelligence outsmart us?
How do we shape the future?
Will we survive on Earth?
Should we colonise space?
Is time travel possible?
Throughout his extraordinary career, Stephen Hawking expanded our understanding of the universe and unravelled some of its greatest mysteries. But even as his theoretical work on black holes, imaginary time and multiple histories took his mind to the furthest reaches of space, Hawking always believed that science could also be used to fix the problems on our planet.
And now, as we face potentially catastrophic changes here on Earth - from climate change to dwindling natural resources to the threat of artificial super-intelligence - Stephen Hawking turns his attention to the most urgent issues for humankind.
Wide-ranging, intellectually stimulating, passionately argued, and infused with his characteristic humour, Brief Answers to the Big Questions, the final book from one of the greatest minds in history, is a personal view on the challenges we face as a human race, and where we, as a planet, are heading next.

Attention ! Évènement ! Nouveau tome dans la série best-seller de Stephen Hawking.
Georges et Annie participent à un programme pour astronautes en herbe. Objectif : la planète Mars ! Mais à peine arrivés au centre de formation, ils apprennent l'existence d'une étrange mission secrète. Quelque chose ne tourne pas rond sur la base spatiale Kosmodrome 2...
Em textos inéditos, o físico e autor do best-seller Uma breve história do tempo nos presenteia com seus pensamentos finais sobre as maiores perguntas da humanidade.
Desde Einstein, o mundo não via um cientista tão reverenciado quanto Stephen Hawking. Com seu trabalho revolucionário em física e cosmologia, ele encantou milhões de leitores com as origens do universo e a natureza dos buracos negros, além de inspirar a todos pela coragem e determinação que exibiu em sua luta contra a doença do neurônio motor. Agora, nesta reunião póstuma de seus trabalhos, ele expõe seus pensamentos a respeito das grandes questões que povoam nossas mentes desde os primórdios e daquelas mais prementes na atualidade.
Somos conduzidos assim a suas reflexões sobre a origem do universo, a existência de deus e a natureza do tempo, assuntos sempre submetidos a seu intelecto afiado de cientista. Aliado à curiosidade que o impulsionou por toda a vida, ele projeta seu olhar também para o futuro, em que busca soluções para problemas que ameaçam hoje o mundo como o conhecemos, tais como o aquecimento global, a fome e a urgência de um desenvolvimento sustentável.
Com prefácio de Eddie Redmayne — que ganhou um Oscar por interpretá-lo no cinema —, introdução do Nobel de física Kip Thorne e posfácio comovente de Lucy Hawking, sua filha, Breves respostas para grandes questões não é apenas a última mensagem de um grande gênio: é seu presente final para a humanidade.
“It is said that fact is sometimes stranger than fiction, and nowhere is that more true than in the case of black holes. Black holes are stranger than anything dreamed up by science fiction writers.”
In 2016 Professor Stephen Hawking delivered the BBC Reith Lectures on a subject that fascinated him for decades – black holes.
In these flagship lectures the legendary physicist argued that if we could only understand black holes and how they challenge the very nature of space and time, we could unlock the secrets of the universe.
Have you ever wondered how our universe began?
Or what it takes to put humans on the moon? Do you know what happens in the microscopic world of a life-saving vaccine? What would you do if you could travel through space and time?
Embark on the adventure of a lifetime in this beautiful collection of up-to-the-minute essays, mind-blowing facts and out-of-this-world colour photographs, by the world's leading scientists including Professor Stephen Hawking himself.
This edition features brand-new content from Dr Mary Dobson: Plagues, Pandemics and Planetary Health.
This unmissable volume was curated by Stephen and Lucy Hawking, whose series of children's books George's Secret Key was a global hit.
George's stories are punctuated with fascinating real-life facts and insights from leading scientists and now this incredible non-fiction has been collected into one bumper volume, with new content from key scientific figures and up-to-the-minute facts and figures for readers in 2021.
READERS LOVE UNLOCKING THE UNIVERSE:
"Despite its scientific content the essays are written in a very accessible style and the many topics investigated which range from the physical explanations of the universe to earth science to robotics and future predictions. Highly recommended for curious minds from around 10 years upwards" - Sue Warren, Blogger
"My 9 y.o. loves this book. We've previously discussed a lot of the concepts, but this seems to answer questions I hadn't thought of, but my son wanted to know"
This book approaches that. In The Theory of Everything, Hawking presents a series of seven lectures in which he lays out, perhaps more clearly and concisely than ever, the history of the universe as we know it. These essays capture not only the brilliance of Hawking’s mind but his characteristic wit as well.
A great popularizer of science as well as a brilliant scientist, Hawking believes that advances in theoretical science should be "understandable in broad principle by everyone, not just a few scientists." In this book, he offers, for all who would take it, a voyage of discovery about the cosmos and our place
