Hawking on "A Brief History of Time", 1988
Pp. 16-19 (4)
Julio A. Gonzalo
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.
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.
