    A journey through life, the universe and everything. From what actually happened in the big bang to the accidental discovery of Post-it notes, science is packed with surprising discoveries. Did you know, for instance, that if you were to get too close to a black hole it would suck you up like a noodle (it's called spaghettification), why your keyboard is laid out in QWERTY (it's not to make it easier to type) or whether the invention of the wheel was less important to civilisation than the bag (think about it)? New Scientist does.

    Hawking takes us on a fascinating journey through the telescopic lens of modern physics to gain a new glimpse of the universe--the nature of black holes, the space-time continuum, and new information about the origin of the universe. He uses this scientific basis to come up with a "unified theory of everything" that the author claims will be "the ultimate triumph of human reason."

En casa, sus padres son tan ecologistas que no quieren ni oír hablar del progreso y la ciencia. Pero lo que ellos no saben es que el enemigo está muy cerca. Acaba de llegar un nuevo vecino que, ¡horror!, es un eminente científico, y eso, para los padres de George, solo significa una cosa: peligro.
