"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 I delivered the BBC Reith Lectures on black holes, which have fascinated me for years. In the Reith Lectures, I argue 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.

They are now available in paperback form, introduced and annotated by BBC Science Editor David Shukman, with illustrations like the one below throughout.

“有人说,现实有的时候比小说更离奇,用这句话来形容黑洞是再贴切不过了。真正的黑洞比任何科幻小说家想象的都更怪异。”

多年来,我一直很着迷于研究黑洞;在2016年,我在BBC里斯讲座做了关于黑洞的演讲。在里斯讲座中,我提出:如果我们可以了解黑洞,理解黑洞如何挑战空间和时间的本质,我们可能就能解开宇宙之谜。

这些内容现在被印刷出版了,全书带有如下插图,并有BBC科学编辑大卫·舒克曼(David Shukman)写得引言和注解。
