Hawking on "A Brief History of Time", 1988

Pp. 16-19 (4)

Julio A. Gonzalo

Abstract

The successive editions (1988, 1996, 1998, 2005) of “A Brief History of Time” are briefly commented upon. Some big questions such as “Where did me come from?”, “Why is the universe what it is?”, brought forward but left unanswered by Professor Hawing, are pointed out. A “complete unified theory of physics” is within the reach today’s theoreticians, according to him.

Keywords:

Wormholes, unified theories of physics, rational laws governing the universe, cosmic background radiation, COBE, CBR anisotropies, self-contained universe with no beginning and no end.
