It is intended for researchers and students. 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. Käufl; C. Sterken

    Springer 2008; US$ 159.00

    This book contains 17 chapters reviewing our knowledge of the high-velocity clouds (HVCs) as of 2004, bringing this together in one place for the first time. Each of the many different aspects of HVC research is addressed by one of the experts in that subfield. These include a historical overview of HVC research and analyses of the structure and kinematics... more...

  • Dense Molecular Gas Around Protostars and in Galactic Nucleiby W.A. Baan; Y. Hagiwara; H.J. Langevelde

    Springer 2005; US$ 179.00

    The phenomena observed in young stellar objects (YSO), circumstellar regions and extra-galactic nuclei show some similarity in their morphology, dynamical and physical processes, though they may differ in scale and energy. The European Workshop on Astronomical Molecules 2004 gave astronomers a unique opportunity to discuss the links among the observational... more...

  • Dark Sky, Dark Matterby J.M Overduin; P.S Wesson

    Taylor and Francis 2002; US$ 231.00

    Olbers' paradox states that given the Universe is unbounded, governed by the standard laws of physics, and populated by light sources, the night sky should be ablaze with light. Obviously this is not so. However, the paradox does not lie in nature but in our understanding of physics. A Universe with a finite age, such as follows from big-bang theory,... more...

  • The Mystery of the Tunguska Fireballby Surendra Verma

    Icon Books 2005; US$ 10.19

    On 30 June 1908 a mysterious fireball exploded in the Siberian sky and flattened 2,000 square kilometres of the remote Tunguska forest. As no crater and no material from outer space were ever found, a meteorite could not have caused the Tunguska explosion. So what did?  This 'grand dame of science mysteries' soon turns 100 but continues to seduce... more...
