  • Cometsby Julio Angel FernŠndez

    Springer 2006; US$ 259.00

    The book covers the most recent ideas about the nature and dynamics of comets, including a thorough discussion on Oort cloud dynamics which has not received due attention in other books on the subject. It also discusses the most relevant aspects of the physics and chemistry of comet nuclei, highlighting their importance as relics of the protoplanetary... more...

  • Deep Impact Mission: Looking Beneath the Surface of a Cometary Nucleusby Christopher Russell

    Springer Netherlands 2006; US$ 239.00

    Deep Impact, or at least part of the flight system, is designed to crash into comet 9P/Tempel 1. This bold mission design enables cometary researchers to peer into the cometary nucleus, analyzing the material excavated with its imagers and spectrometers. The book describes the mission, its objectives, expected results, payload, and data products in... more...

  • Frontiers in Dusty Plasmasby Y. Nakamura; T. Yokota; P.K. Shukla

    Elsevier Science 2000; US$ 275.00

    The study of dusty plasmas is now in a vigorous state of development. Dust and plasma coexist in a vast variety of cosmic environments and their research received a major boost in the early 80's with the Voyager spacecraft observations of peculiar features in the Saturnian ring system (e.g. the radial spokes) which could not be explained purely in... more...

  • The Invisible Universeby Lefteris Papantonopoulos

    Springer 2007; US$ 79.95

    The nature and essence of Dark Matter and Dark Energy have become the central issue in modern cosmology over the past years as they make up most of the matter and energy content of the known universe. Accordingly, the subject matter is quite naturally tied to other fields such as astroparticle physics, quantum physics and general relativity. This extensive... more...

  • Field Guide to Meteors and Meteoritesby O. Richard Norton; Lawrence A. Chitwood

    Springer 2008; US$ 39.95

    It is said that astronomy is one of the few remaining fields in which amateurs can make a real contribution to science, and nowhere is this more true than in the field of meteors and meteorites. Although meteors are isolated and unpredictable, it is possible to predict when meteor showers - usually associated with old comets - are due; they last a... more...

  • Deep Impact as a World Observatory Eventby H.U. Kšufl; C. Sterken

    Springer 2008; US$ 159.00

    In the context of the NASA Deep Impact space mission, comet 9P/Tempel1 has been at the focus of an unprecedented worldwide long-term multi-wavelength observation campaign. This book includes the proceedings of a meeting that brought together an audience of theoreticians and observers to make full use of the ground-based observing data set. more...

  • The Greatest Comets in Historyby David A.J. Seargent

    Springer 2008; US$ 34.95

    Presents a descriptive account of what are deemed to have been the most spectacular and notable comets ever recorded, beginning with 'Aristotle's Comet' of 372 BC and ending with McNaught's Comet of 2007. Focusing on Halley's Comet, this title introduces comets in general, explaining what they are and correcting a few popular misconceptions. more...

  • Meteors and How to Observe Themby Robert Lunsford

    Springer 2008; US$ 34.95

    Explains how best to view meteor activity under a variety of conditions, regardless of the observer's location. Instead of focusing on just one region in the world, this book includes observing conditions for four different regions such as high northern latitudes, low northern latitudes, equatorial regions, and low southern latitudes. more...
