Product Description

Synopsis

Stephen Hawking contributes his latest thoughts on the nature of space and time in this anthology of selections from Princeton University Press. Along with John Archibald Wheeler and other eminent colleagues, Hawking here extends theoretical frontiers by speculating on the big questions of modern cosmology. Beginning with a historical survey of earlier conceptions of the universe and concluding with Hawking's discussion of black holes, space-time, and quantum theory, the programme offers listeners an illuminating opportunity to grasp the magnificence of current theoretical conceptions. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

I love Stephen Hawking's mind. Greatly enjoyed this collection of his thoughts. How wonderful that he can still give us so much education and thought producing material.

Great edutainment of the universe ... 7 July 1999
By Arnold Veness - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio Cassette
July 7, 1999 I would like to take a minute to thank Audio Scholar for putting together this audio novel which consists of 4 essays on the theories of the Universe. I thoroughly enjoyed it as did my 17 month old son who gets to listen to them to as his bedtime stories. One night he kept me up until 2am until I turned the tape back on! Normally he just gets to listen from 8 - 10pm. I would like to encourage Audio Scholar to produce more of these types of edutainment audio programs on tape or CD. In many instances I wouldn't mind seeing the programs extend to 4 tapes or CD's. I love listening to scientific books on my way to work and also love to share them with my 17 month old son as his bedtime stories. My budget for this type of audio edutainment is $1,000 a year and the more science and physics books abridged the better. I would love to see the following subjects abrigded to audio for distribution through Amazon.com. Maths, sciences, physics, astrophysics, geology, any and all space related topics, gravity, unified field theory, electromagnetics, electronics, microproccessor design, optics, micro-optics, electro-optics, light and the theory there of, satellites, satellite orbital mechanics and related theory. I do not have time in my busy daily schedule to read very much, but do I have five hours a day to listen and learn. If you make it I will support it. Arnold D Veness
