Inhaltsangabe

Space and time form the very fabric of the cosmos. Yet they remain among the most mysterious of concepts. Is space an entity? Why does time have a direction? Could the universe exist without space and time? Can we travel to the past?

Greene uses these questions to guide us toward modern science's new and deeper understanding of the universe. From Newton's unchanging realm in which space and time are absolute, to Einstein's fluid conception of spacetime, to quantum mechanics' entangled arena where vastly distant objects can bridge their spatial separation to instantaneously coordinate their behavior or even undergo teleportation, Greene reveals our world to be very different from what common experience leads us to believe. Focusing on the enigma of time, Greene establishes that nothing in the laws of physics insists that it run in any particular direction and that "time's arrow" is a relic of the universe's condition at the moment of the big bang. And in explaining the big bang itself, Greene shows how recent cutting-edge developments in superstring and M-theory may reconcile the behavior of everything from the smallest particle to the largest black hole. This startling vision culminates in a vibrant eleven-dimensional "multiverse," pulsating with ever-changing textures, where space and time themselves may dissolve into subtler, more fundamental entities.

Sparked by the trademark wit, humor, and brilliant use of analogy, Brian Greene takes us all, regardless of our scientific backgrounds, on an irresistible and revelatory journey to the new layers of reality that modern physics has discovered lying just beneath the surface of our everyday world.

Kritikerstimmen

"Nobody ever said that cosmology was simple, not even Stephen Hawking, in whose tradition Dr. Greene impressively follows....he is both a skilled and kindly explicator....The Fabric of the Cosmos is as dazzling as it is tough." (The New York Times)
"It will be enjoyable and stimulating for the lay reader, who will even learn about time travel and teleportation. This is one popular-science book that won't be left on the coffee table half read." (The New York Times Book Review)

    "Gutes Buch - schwieriger Sprecher"
    Was hat Ihnen am allerbesten an The Fabric of the Cosmos gefallen?

    Die wissenschaftliche Darstellung von dem, was wir vom Universum, der Welt und uns bisher wissen, ist sehr gelungen.


    Was mochten Sie nicht am Vortrag von Michael Prichard?

    Leider ist Michael Prichard ein Sprecher, der auf einen Professorenlehrstuhl des 19. Jahrhunderts passt. Strenge, very British Aussprache, wie man sie bei Monty Python findet. So wenig freundlich und liebevoll wie es nur möglich ist, eben staubtrockene, beinharte Professorenaussprache.


    Hätten Sie das Hörbuch am liebsten in einem Rutsch durchgehört?

    nein


    Was wäre für andere Hörer sonst noch hilfreich zu wissen, um das Hörbuch richtig einschätzen zu können?

    Besser das Buch nicht das Hörbuch kaufen.

    Geschichte
    "Are we the puppets on a string?"

    Definitely and interesting way to plunge into the fascinating world of modern day physics. Indeed easy listening storytelling about the leaps from Newtonian physics via Einsteins relatively and its seeming opposite quantum mechanics counterpart to the probes into unification with string theory. Also a nice set of chapters on the experiments that were in planning at the time of the writing of the book and that are now coming close to their ulitmate test like the LIGO (gravitatinal waves experiment) and others.

    For everybody who has lost close contact with research several decenia ago, the book is a fine way to bridge the knowledge gap and get a sense of what has happened over all these years. Some argumentations in favor of string theory made me smile and reminded me of a favorite saying of a late professor physics: Give me two variables and I draw you an elephant. Add a third one and I make its trunk move. Modern physics as the quest for the right set of mathematical equations and the hunt to prove that the found set of equations has some qualities that can also be observed. The set thus becomes reality and reality is the set. An approach that in the end is most likely not to different from Werner Schrödinger who was on the lookout for an equation with eigenvalues and who found something that has up to now past the test of time in spite of sceptiscism that such an approach could never result in a complete theory.

    Congratulations to the narrator of the audible version for his achievement.
