The ultimate nature of the universe is a question that has intrigued some of the greatest minds of the twentieth century - including the man the Los Angeles Times says, "may be the smartest person on the planet": astrophysicist Stephen Hawking. Here, in easy prose and simple explanations, we get a firsthand glimpse of what Stephen Hawking's universe is all about - the incredibly huge and powerful black holes at the centers of galaxies; the reasons astronomers think the universe is filled w/ a mysterious kind of matter no one has seen; the bizarre events that occurred in the first microsecond of time; and why the universe may have not just three or four dimensions, but eleven.
