In 1988 Stephen Hawking published A Brief History of Time. It established itself as a landmark volume in scientific writing. It was translated into 40 languages and sold over 9 million copies. But since then there have been extraordinary advances in observation of the worlds. These observations have confirmed Hawking's theoretical predictions. Professor Hawking was eager to bring these new findings to his original text and this expanded updated edition provides just that. With a new foreword and entirely new chapter on wormholes and time travel, this edition is the most comprehensive. It is also enhanced with more than 240 full color illustrations and images, some made possible by the Hubble Telescope.
