Brief Answers to the Big Questions by Stephen Hawking

Brief Answers to the Big Questions

Stephen Hawking was the most renowned scientist since Einstein, known both for his groundbreaking work in physics and cosmology and for his mischievous sense of humor. He educated millions of readers about the origins of the universe and the nature of black holes, and inspired millions more by defying a terrifying early prognosis of ALS, which originally gave him only two years to live. In later life he could communicate only by using a few facia...

There is no definitive answer to this question, but I did learn that a black hole is a collasped star that does have gravitational power to suck in a human being. I learned that a black hole does trap in light and emit a lot of heat and radiation. Hawking supported livin...

    Will humanity survive? Should we colonize space? Does God exist? These are just a few of the questions Hawking addresses in this wide-ranging, passionately argued final book from one of the greatest minds in history.

    Enjoyed reading sage advice from Hawking. It was a much quicker read than “A Brief History of Time.” He did a nice job of outlining key discoveries and even nicer at explaining what it means to earthlings. We have work to do, and need to be diligent. I’m so glad he left us with his insights.

    A beautiful insight into an ingenious mind.

    A great conclusion to a meaningful life.This appears to be his most concise book. One could have left the politics out of it since there is no math to describe emotions yet.

    Description: Hawking not only unraveled some of the universe’s greatest mysteries but also believed science plays a critical role in fixing problems here on Earth. Now, as we face immense challenges on our planet—including climate change, the threat of nuclear war, and the development of artificial intelligence—he turns his attention to the most urgent issues facing us.Will humanity survive? Should we colonize space? Does God exist? These a...
