The Complete Idiot's Guide to Astronomy, 2E

by Christopher De Pree

Astronomy is an ancient science on the cutting edge. Although it's been around for over 5,500 years, astronomers say that we have learned more than 90 percent of what we know in only the last 50 years--a disproportionate...


From Dust to Life: The Origin and Evolution of Our Solar System

by John Chambers & Jacqueline Mitton

The birth and evolution of our solar system is a tantalizing mystery that may one day provide answers to the question of human origins. This book tells the remarkable story of how the celestial objects that...


Introduction to Modeling Convection in Planets and Stars: Magnetic Field, Density Stratification, Rotation

by Gary Glatzmaier

This book provides readers with the skills they need to write computer codes that simulate convection, internal gravity waves, and magnetic field generation in the interiors and atmospheres of rotating planets...


The Mind's Sky: Human Intelligence in a Cosmic Context

by Timothy Ferris

His style as playful as ever, Timothy Ferris explores inner as well as outer space in these essays on the human mind, the search for extraterrestrial (and thus nonhuman) intelligence, and their intersection....


The Fallacy of Fine-Tuning: Why the Universe Is Not Designed for Us

by Victor J. Stenger

A number of authors have noted that if some physical parameters were slightly changed, the universe could no longer support life, as we know it. This implies that life depends sensitively on the physics of our...
