  • Description
    "It is said that fact is sometimes stranger than fiction, and nowhere is that more true than in the case of black holes. Black holes are stranger than anything dreamed up by science fiction writers." In 2016 Professor Stephen Hawking delivered the BBC Reith Lectures on a subject that fascinated him for decades - black holes. In these flagship lectures the legendary physicist argued that if we could only understand black holes and how they challenge the very nature of space and time, we could unlock the secrets of the universe.

    Must buy!

    sometimes,if you are wish to gain some knowledgeable things about the space I would like to suggest you to read some books rather than searching it on google. In this book they were mentioned a lot of things about the black hole thats enough.Anyways, just buy it without thinking twice..

    Pretty good

    Great Book!
    The description is quite elegant and is in easy language to grasp the concept or ideas of Black Holes. There is also some point by the editor that engrossed you to think over some of the things. Sir Hawking had tried to explain the terms philosophically.

    Brilliant

    This book gives a lot of primary information on black holes . It is a very good introduction material for new aspiring cosmonauts and cosmic enthusiasts . It also instills in common reader the zest for exploring and acquiring knowledge about outer space. David shukman has taken a great deal ,on decoding Hawking's ideas on the black holes and making them easy to comprehend.
    The book was in good condition at the time of delivery .
    Thank you Flipkart for such a nice experience

    Great Product, I loved the reliability, it was promised to be delivered by today, even though it was stormy and raining in here, it was delivered at time without a scratch. Coming back to the content, I love it in real for the sake of holy heavens. It is worth reading, and at such a low price, makes it an undeniable case
