The Harmony of the Sphere: Kant and Herschel on the Universe and the Astronomical Phenomena

The individuals to The concord of the sector: Kant and Herschel at the Universe and the Astronomical Phenomena contain expert historians of technology, philosophers of technology, and scientists, who supply various views from which Kant's and Herschel's platforms should be approached. The identify, The concord of the field, is an evocative one.

Guidebook to the Constellations: Telescopic Sights, Tales, and Myths

This instruction manual is a consultant to exploring the classical evening sky and its really good telescopic points of interest. All 88 formally famous constellations are awarded in common teams that are comparable by way of their foundation and site within the sky. every one staff is defined via a desirable tale which tells what every one constellation represents, the way it seems within the sky, and why the opposite constellations of the crowd are within sight, or comparable in another demeanour.

Telescopes: A Very Short Introduction

From the 1st, telescopes have made dramatic revelations in regards to the Universe and our position in it. Galileo's observations of the Moon's cratered floor and discovery of Jupiter's 4 massive satellites profoundly altered the conception of the heavens. during the last century, the quick improvement of machine expertise and complicated fabrics allowed huge, immense strides within the development of telescopes.

Which stars leave neutron star remnants, and which leave black holes? • How does transfer of mass take place in binary stars, and what regulates accretion onto compact objects? Recent Progress in Understanding Stellar Evolution Pre-Main Sequence Stars During their formation, stars are strongly influenced by rotation and magnetic fields that break spherical symmetry and channel angular momentum. The ubiquitous disks and bipolar flows that regulate stellar rotation through magnetic interaction were resolved for the first time earlier in this decade by means of interferometric observations at millimeter wavelengths.
