A Brief History of Time – The Documentary

Today on Far Future Horizons we present "A Brief History of Time – The Documentary".

This is a movie about Stephen Hawking’s ideas as outlined in his best selling book “A Brief History of Time” and about his life.

A Brief History of Time attempts to explain a wide range of subjects in cosmology, including the Big Bang, black holes, light cones and super-string theory, to the non specialist reader. Its main goal is to give an overview of the subject but, unusual for a popular science book, it also attempts to explain some complex mathematics.

Stephen Hawking noted that an editor warned him that for every equation in the book the readership would be halved, hence it includes only a single equation: E = mc². In addition to Hawking’s abstinence from equations, the book also simplifies matters by means of illustrations throughout the text, depicting complex models and diagrams. The book is considered by many to be an “unread bestseller”, which is a book many people own but few have finished. So if you haven’t really read the book make it a point to watch this documentary.
