Some people never admit that they are wrong and continue to find new, and often mutually inconsistent, arguments to support their case - as Eddington did in opposing black hole theory. Others claim to have never really supported the view in the first place or, if they did, it was only to show that it was inconsistent. It seems to me much better and less confusing if you admit in print that you were wrong.
SummaryAdd a Summary
A Brief History of Time by Stephen Hawking is a book about of a history of the universe, for my opinion is something amazing this book, shows how the ideas of the human was changing that first start with Aristotle who thought that the earth was stationary so the earth didn’t move and the planets,the sun and the stars was moving around the earth,and to finish Hawking with his big theory about blacks holes that it is something awesome. For me the most impact it was when I understood how the big ideas were changing to understand better the world.
From my point of view the best scientist has been Stephen Hawking, he is a scientist who everybody should admire because he is a disable person, but he is really smart, also he has the same respect that Albert Einstein, he has a real goal that he said “ My goal is simple. It is complete understanding of the universe, why it is as it is and why it exists at all”. In my opinion this “goal” is something unbelievable, this is why he is so smart but he has a problem or something that for me it isn't okay that he is atheist; Although,he wrote a letter where he told that God was always in the equations,It was my conclusion about his letter.
The book A Brief History of Time let me feel without knowledge about this theme, because in the book explain everything in the universe in my world specifically. I could discover something that I didn’t know, but I always keep asking me the same question.One part told about the blacks holes that I don’t like just because our mathematics are excellent, but the technology of the humans can’t travel to the galaxies to test all theories that we have it.
