On the occasion of the death of Stephen Hawking, we decided to gather some of the books he published throughout his career and that are digitized on the Internet.
As is known, along with his brilliant career as an astrophysicist, Hawking also dedicated an important part of his time to disseminating scientific knowledge of the field of his specialty, to bring the findings about the universe, time and the world to a wide audience. physical reality that, especially since the second half of the twentieth century, expanded human perception of the world in which we live.
The books we list are three Hawking classics: his History of Time (1988), which shortly after his publication became a bestseller and catapulted him to a certain unexpected celebrity; Black holes and small universes and other trials (1993), where he explained some of the most extraordinary phenomena observed by recent cosmology; and The universe in a nutshell (2001), in which he simply presented some of the most important theories of modern physics.
The human being dies, but his works - sometimes - survive. Without a doubt, Stephen Hawking's work will last much longer.
