  • Minding the Heavensby Leila Belkora

    CRC Press 2002; US$ 54.95

    Today, we accept that we live on a planet circling the sun, that our sun is just one of billions of stars in the galaxy we call the Milky Way, and that our galaxy is but one of billions born out of the big bang. Yet as recently as the early twentieth century, the general public and even astronomers had vague and confused notions about what lay beyond... more...

  • Interplanetary Magnetohydrodynamicsby L. F. Burlaga

    Oxford University Press 1995; US$ 279.99 US$ 240.79

    Spacecraft such as the Pioneer, Vela, and Voyager have explored the interplanetary medium between the orbits of Mercury and Pluto. The insights derived from these missions have been successfully applied to magnetospheric, astro-solar, and cosmic ray physics. This book is an overview of these insights, using magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) flows as the... more...

  • Originsby Tom Yulsman

    CRC Press 2002; US$ 54.95

    With stunning regularity, the search for our cosmic roots has been yielding remarkable new discoveries about the universe and our place in it. In his compelling book, Origins: The Quest for Our Cosmic Roots, veteran science journalist Tom Yulsman chronicles the latest discoveries and describes in clear and engaging terms what they mean. From the interior... more...

  • The Physics of Interstellar Dustby Endrik Krugel

    CRC Press 2002; US$ 253.00

    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...

  • The Planetary Scientist's Companionby Katharina Lodders; Bruce Jr. Fegley

    Oxford University Press 1998; US$ 49.99 US$ 42.99

    Scientists have collected a wealth of physical and chemical data for the Sun, planets, and small bodies in our solar system, but until now this information has been scattered throughout the technical literature. The Planetary Scientist's Companion solves this problem, providing for the first time a single, extensive reference for the interdisciplinary... more...
