  • How Likely is Extraterrestrial Life?by J. Woods Halley

    Springer 2012; US$ 49.95

    What does existing scientific knowledge about physics, chemistry, meteorology and biology tell us about the likelihood of extraterrestrial life and civilizations? And what does the fact that there is currently no credible scientific evidence for the existence of extraterrestrial biospheres or civilizations teach us? This book reviews the various scientific... more...

  • Our Explosive Sunby Pal Brekke

    Springer 2011; US$ 29.95

    The Sun, which is our own star at the center of the Solar System, gives rise to all life on Earth and is the driver of photosynthesis in plants and the source of all food and energy for living things.
