This updated, expanded and illustrated edition of Stephen Hawking's celebrated work includes the most recent developments in the field, many of which were forecast by him. At the same time, he explains his complex theories through a fresh visual dimension. Over 150 stunning colour illustrations have been specially commissioned for this purpose, with computer images of three- and four-dimensional concepts which help the reader understand what have become popular mythic images of our century, but which nonetheless remain difficult, abstract ideas to grasp.
The reader can now experience the vastness of intergalactic space, understand the nature of black holes, or watch the microcosmic world of particle physics in which matter and anti-matter collide.
