A Brief History of Time by Stephen Hawking

In the ten years since its publication in 1988, Stephen Hawkings classic work has become a landmark volume in scientific writing, with more than nine million copies in forty languages sold worldwide. That edition was on the cutting edge of what was then known about the origins and nature of the universe. But the intervening years have seen extraordinary advances in the technology of observing both the micro- and the macrocosmic worlds. These observations have confirmed many of Professor Hawkings theoretical predictions in the first edition of his book, including the recent discoveries of the Cosmic Background Explorer satellite (COBE), which probed back in time to within 300,000 years of the universes beginning and revealed wrinkles in the fabric of space-time that he had projected. Eager to bring to his original text the new knowledge revealed by these observations, as well as his own recent research, Professor Hawking has prepared a new introduction to the book, written an entirely new chapter on wormholes and time travel, and updated the chapters throughout.

A Brief History of Time

So what does Rovelli think is really going on? He posits that reality is just a complex network of events onto which we project sequences of past, present and future. The whole Universe obeys the laws of quantum mechanics and thermodynamics, out of which time emerges. Rovelli is one of the creators and champions of loop quantum gravity theory, one of several ongoing attempts to marry quantum mechanics with general relativity. Nevertheless, its agenda of joining up these two fundamentally differing laws is incredibly ambitious. This stems from the fact that some equations of quantum gravity such as the Wheeler—DeWitt equation, which assigns quantum states to the Universe can be written without any reference to time at all. The book is split into three parts.

  1. FOREWARD. I didn't write a foreword to the original edition of A Brief History of Time. That was done by Carl Sagan. Instead,. I wrote a short piece titled.
