  • 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...

  • Physics of the Interstellar and Intergalactic Mediumby Bruce T. Draine

    Princeton University Press 2010; US$ 75.00

    This is a comprehensive and richly illustrated textbook on the astrophysics of the interstellar and intergalactic medium--the gas and dust, as well as the electromagnetic radiation, cosmic rays, and magnetic and gravitational fields, present between the stars in a galaxy and also between galaxies themselves. Topics include radiative processes across... more...

  • Comets And Their Originby Uwe Meierhenrich

    Wiley 2014; US$ 175.00

    Divided into two parts, the first four chapters of Comets and their Origin refer to comets and their formation in general, describing cometary missions, comet remote observations, astrochemistry, artificial comets, and the chirality phenomenon. The second part covers the cometary ROSETTA mission, its launch, journey, scientific objectives, and instrumentations,... more...

  • 35 Seasons of U.S. Antarctic Meteorites (1976-2010)by Kevin Righter; Catherine Corrigan; Timothy McCoy; Ralph Harvey

    Wiley 2014; US$ 99.95

    The US Antarctic meteorite collection exists due to a cooperative program involving the National Science Foundation (NSF), the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), and the Smithsonian Institution.  Since 1976, meteorites have been collected by a NSF-funded field team, shipped for curation, characterization, distribution, and... 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...

  • The Physics of Interstellar Dustby Endrik Krugel

    CRC Press 2002; US$ 241.00

    Interstellar dust grains catalyse chemical reactions, absorb, scatter, polarise and re-radiate starlight and constitute the building blocks for the formation of planets. Understanding this interstellar component is therefore of primary importance in many areas of astronomy & astrophysics. For example, observers need to understand how dust effects light... more...

  • Meteorites, Ice, and Antarcticaby William A. Cassidy

    Cambridge University Press 2003; US$ 40.00

    A fascinating first-hand account of scientific expeditions in Antarctica, first published in 2003. more...

    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...

  • Dark Matter In The Universeby John Bahcall; Tsvi Piran; Steven Weinberg

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2004; US$ 189.00

    If standard gravitational theory is correct, then most of the matter in the universe is in an unidentified form which does not emit enough light to have been detected by current instrumentation. This book is the second editon of the lectures given at the 4th Jerusalem Winter School for Theoretical Physics, with new material added. The lectures are... more...

  • In Search of Dark Matterby Ken Freeman; Geoff McNamara

    Springer-Verlag New York Inc 2006; US$ 44.95

    Presents the story of the emergence of the dark matter problem, from the initial erroneous discovery of dark matter to contemporary explanations for the nature of dark matter and its role in the origin and evolution of the Universe. This account spans a variety of scientific disciplines, from observational astronomy to particle physics. more...
