How was our universe created? Can time run backwards? Are black holes doors into parallel universes? Stephen Hawking is the most distinguished scientist of our time. His surprising insights have repeatedly caused a stir. His books are bestsellers. But what is at the bottom of Hawking’s ideas? Why are they so incredibly complicated? And how can we appraise them? Rüdiger Vaas, science journalist and author of «Hawking’s New Universe», explains what Hawking’s cosmological research is really about. In simple words and clear illustrations, he describes Hawking’s findings and bold theories in a way everyone will easily understand. Rüdiger Vaas works as a science journalist and astronomy and physics editor for a popular German monthly publication called «bild der wissenschaft». He is an accomplished expert on modern cosmology. Kosmos has published his bestsellers «Hawking’s New Universe» and «Tunnel Through Time and Space».
