  • Dynamics and Mission Design Near Libration Points - Vol Iby G Gómez; J Llibre; R Martínez; C Simó

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2001; US$ 128.00

    In this book the problem of station keeping is studied for orbits near libration points in the solar system. The main focus is on orbits near halo ones in the (Earth+Moon)–Sun system. Taking as starting point the restricted three-body problem, the motion in the full solar system is considered as a perturbation of this simplified model. All the... more...

  • Edward Pickering and His Women "Computers"by Lisa Yount

    Infobase Publishing 2012; US$ 35.00

    In the 42 years that Edward Pickering directed the Harvard College Observatory, he and his team of women "computers" made strides in promoting the new field of astrophotography, discovered the first spectroscopic binary star system, and cataloged more than 225,000 stars. Pickering hired women such as Henrietta Leavitt, who found a way to... more...

  • The Formation of Starsby Steven W. Stahler; Francesco Palla

    Wiley 2008; US$ 130.00

    This book is a comprehensive treatment of star formation, one of the most active fields of modern astronomy. The reader is guided through the subject in a logically compelling manner. Starting from a general description of stars and interstellar clouds, the authors delineate the earliest phases of stellar evolution. They discuss formation activity... more...

  • Fred Hoyle's Universeby Jane Gregory

    Oxford University Press, UK 2005; US$ 29.99

    Fred Hoyle was a down-to-earth, argumentative Yorkshireman who became the voice of British astronomy. For fifty years, he spoke out for astronomy in the newspapers, on government committees, at scientific meetings, in popular books and on the radio. He devised the steady-state theory of the universe and worked out how the elements are formed in the... more...

  • From Hubble to Hubbleby Connie Jankowski

    Shell Education 2007; US$ 8.99

    Much of what we know today about Earth is from images taken by cameras on powerful telescopes. Edwin Hubble changed our view of the universe. Working in an observatory, he found that there are other galaxies besides the Milky Way. He also showed that the universe is still growing. Lyman Spitzer, Jr. proposed placing telescopes in space, and in 1990,... more...

  • Future Satellite Gravimetry and Earth Dynamicsby Jakob Flury; Reiner Rummel

    Springer New York 2007; US$ 199.00

    Currently, a first generation of dedicated satellite missions for the precise mapping of the Earth?s gravity field is in orbit (CHAMP, GRACE, and soon GOCE). The gravity data from these satellite missions provide us with very new information on the dynamics of planet Earth. In particular, on the mass distribution in the Earth?s interior, the entire... more...
