  • Dark Nebulae, Dark Lanes, and Dust Beltsby Antony Cooke

    Springer 2012; US$ 39.95

    There are 'voids' obscuring all kinds of objects in the cosmos. Voids may be within an object, or between an object and us. Dark Nebulae, Dark Lanes, and Dust Lanes looks out into the deep sky at those apparent dark regions in space, which are among the most compelling telescopic destinations for amateur observers. One famous example is Barnard's... more...

  • The Spiral Galaxy M33by P. Hodge

    Springer 2011; US$ 159.00

    This book summarizes the gathering of information on and the growing understanding of M33 from the 1920s, when Hubble first determined its true nature, to the 21st century, when the Hubble Telescope probed deeply into its many secrets. With its regular symmetrical spiral structure, and its being not tilted too much and near enough to allow detailed... more...

  • The First Galaxiesby Tommy Wiklind; Bahram Mobasher; Volker Bromm

    Springer 2012; US$ 179.00

The different physical models are presented together with formula important for the understanding of AGN physics. Furthermore, the authors... more...

  • Galaxyby James Geach

    Reaktion Books 2014; US$ 35.00

    Each night, we are able to gaze up at the night sky and look at the thousands of stars that stretch to the end of our individual horizons. But the stars we see are only those that make up our own Milky Way galaxy?but one of hundreds of billions in the whole of the universe, each separated  by inconceivably huge tracts of empty space. In this... more...

  • Lessons from the Local Groupby Kenneth Freeman; Bruce Elmegreen; David Block; Matthew Woolway

    Springer International Publishing 2014; US$ 349.00

     Our understanding of galaxy formation comes mostly from two sources: sensitive observations at high angular resolution of the high-redshift Universe, where galaxies are observed to be forming, and detailed observations of individual stars and clouds in the Local Group, where telltale remnants from its formative time remain and similar processes operate... more...

  • In the Dust of This Planetby Eugene Thacker

    John Hunt Publishing 2011; US$ 14.99

    The world is increasingly unthinkable, a world of planetary disasters, emerging pandemics, and the looming threat of extinction. In this book Eugene Thacker suggests that we look to the genre of horror as offering a way of thinking about the unthinkable world. To confront this idea is to confront the limit of our ability to understand the world in... more...

  • The Galaxies of the Local Groupby Sidney Bergh

    Cambridge University Press 2000; US$ 72.00

    A comprehensive summary of what is known about the Local Group, and what this knowledge tells us about the rest of the Universe. more...
