The existence of materials with very high specific energies greatly exceeding the local virial temperature is best represented by cosmic rays, whose origin has long been a mystery. Recent astrophysical observations in X-ray, gamma-ray, neutrino, and high energy cosmic ray experiments, in conjunction with theoretical studies, have revealed various new... more...

Planets, Stars, and Galaxies takes readers on an incredible full-color journey through the vast solar system. This engaging title tackles the questions students studying... more...
- Springer London 2007; US$ 31.45
Astrophysics is a subject that is often - with some justification - regarded as extremely difficult, requiring at least degree-level mathematics as a prerequisite to its understanding. Consequently, many amateur astronomers just don't bother, and miss out on the fascinating fundamentals of the subject, and often on an understanding of exactly what... more...

This book shows how transiting planets may be used to infer the presence of exomoons through deviations in time and duration of planetary eclipses. It shows that habitable-zone exomoons above 0.2 Earth-masses can be detected with the Kepler space telescope. more...
