Not so sciency, meself. I mean, I get the general principles of introductory physics and whatnot, but how exactly does his whole dealio about the graviton square with the boson, exactly? Aren't they iteration of the same idea? They certainly seem to be. One is mass, one is (presumably) gravity.

I need someone to Brief History of Time this shit for me.

I guess from what I understand, the boson is sort of a field, whereas the graviton is a particle. But that's literally the end of my simplified knowledge. Want help, dudes.

I just noticed Brief History of Time was published 20 years ago. Is still fairly accurate compared to today's understanding of the universe? A lot could change in a couple of decades.

¨I call it a Hawking´s Boson.¨

I tried to read Hawking's and got completely lost somewhere after page 40, and that might be an exaggeration.

I started reading A Brief History of Time a few days ago...and have almost decided to give up. After all, I did want some light reading.
