Kip Thorne, a Nobel Prize-winning physicist and the Feynman Professor of Theoretical Physics Emeritus at Caltech, is the author of the bestselling books Black Holes and Time Warps and The Science of Interstellar. Thorne was an executive producer for the film Interstellar. For “bridging the worlds of science and the humanities,” Thorne received Rockefeller University’s Lewis Thomas.   To show our gratitude, we’ve created a book in homage to you and the Zooniverse Year of , highlighting 40 of the over active Zooniverse projects this year. There are many fascinating projects we weren’t able to include. We hope to continue creating these books annually, highlighting a whole new set of projects and discoveries each year.

  Kip S. Thorne is one of the most important researchers in gravity and black holes. I this book,after a introductin as a sf short tale where a spaceship goes to the evet horizon of different sizes of black holes to investigate,the author explains clearly the principle of relativity is to say that the physical laws are the same in all inertial reference frames,this priciple is the origin of the /5. Wormholes and Spacewarps, even if they are not the same thing, are very simliar, so similar that, I think we should merge the articles. Besides, spacewarps make me think of sci-fi, while wormholes make me think theoretical physics. Theoretical physics, rather than sci-fi, sounds like what this article is going for.

English astrophysicist Gribbin (Timewarps, White Holes, etc.) proves once again that he is a lucid and fluent expositor to lay there is some sleight-of-hand here. In this volume, says Gribbin, he wants to dwell on the anomalies of space in an Einsteinian universe: matter disturbs the smooth flatness of the terrain, producing the gravity wells or warps predicted by general.

The implications for the universe Spacewarps book Einstein's theory of relativity as revealed by the latest observations are discussed. The subjects considered include: spacetime and time warps, black holes and bent spacetime, white holes and the future of the universe, quasars and galaxies, the neutrino mass problem, the shrinking sun, the possibility of time travel, the existence of extraterrestrial life.

Black holes, down which anything can fall but from which nothing can return; wormholes, short spacewarps connecting regions of the cosmos; singularities, where space and time are so violently warped that time ceases to exist and space becomes a kind of foam; gravitational waves, which carry symphonic accounts of collisions of black holes.

Stephen Hawking's A Brief History of Time has been one of the greatest best-sellers in publishing history. Anyone who struggled with that book will find here a more slowly paced but equally mind-stretching experience, with the added fascination of a rich historical and human component.

Winner of the Phi Beta Kappa Award in Science. Kip Thorne's excellent book should be updated every year and kept in national archives for future generations of scientists and is as much historical as popular scientific masterpiece, teaching us about life of many important mathematicians, theoretical and experimental physicists and astrophysicists, trying to solve the mystery of imploding stars and created later black by:   Kip Thorne, a Nobel Prize-winning physicist and the Feynman Professor of Theoretical Physics Emeritus at Caltech, is the author of the bestselling books Black Holes and Time Warps and The Science of Interstellar.

Thorne was an executive producer for the film Interstellar/5(21). The book moves on to current speculations of the kind Gribben has dealt with in his astrophysics popularizations (Spacewarps, Future Worlds, etc.), and also sees him stepping out of his reporter's role to support Hugh Everett's many-world superspace theory.
