Professor Stephen Hawking is regarded by many as one of the most brilliant theoretical physicists in history. His tireless work on the origins and structure of the universe, from the Big Bang to black holes, has revolutionized the field. On top of this, his best-selling books have made so much of his invaluable research accessible to those of us who do not share Hawking’s scientific background. “A Brief History of Time” appeared on the British Sunday Times best-seller list for a record-breaking 237 weeks, and is now available in more than 30 languages. He has also co-written a trilogy of children’s books with his daughter Lucy, explaining his work in science as a series of adventure stories for young readers.
