6-2-1 Short Answer: Why Ask Why? (ONE PAGE)


Task: Submit to complete this assignment

Stephen Hawking   stated in A Brief History of Time (1988) that "a good   theory is characterized by the fact that it makes a number of predictions   that could in principle be disproved or falsified by observation." In other   words, a good theory needs to predict things that can be tested. As we   already discussed in this learning block, the results of those tests will in   turn lead to more questions and more tests.

Based on the video with Stephen Hawking you just watched,   answer the following questions.

1. Comment on what you think drives a   scientist like Stephen Hawking to ask, "Why?"

2. How has Hawking's research contributed to   the field of natural science?

3. When you consider the work of natural   scientists in general, how do you think developments in scientific thinking   end up influencing how scientific study is carried out? Provide an example.
