Three Treatises on Copernican Theory (Dover Thrift Editions) by Nicolaus Copernicus
English | October 17th, 2018 | ISBN: 0486827755 | 224 Pages | EPUB | 1.87 MB

Universally regarded as a founder of modern astronomy, Copernicus wrote in Latin, and his works were unavailable in English until the publication of this 1939 translation. A three-part collection, it consists of the "Commentariolus," Copernicus' sketch of his hypotheses for the heavenly motions; "Narratio Prima," Georg Joachim Rheticus' popular introduction to Copernican theory; and "The Letter Against Werner," Copernicus' refutation of the views of one of his contemporaries.

Exploring the Cosmic Frontier: Astrophysical Instruments for the 21st Century By Andrei P. Lobanov
English | PDF | 2007 | 291 Pages | ISBN : 3540397558 | 27.9 MB

In the coming decades, astrophysical science will benefit enormously from the construction and operation of several major international ground- and space based facilities, such as ALMA, Herschel/Planck, and SKA in the far infrared to radio band, Extremely Large Telescopes, JWST and GAIA in the optical to near infrared regime, XEUS and Constellation-X in the X-ray, and GLAST in the Gamma-ray regime. These and other new instruments will have a major impact in a wide range of scientific topics including the cosmological epoch of reionization, galactic dynamics and nuclear activity, stellar astronomy, extra-solar planets, gamma-ray bursts, X-ray binaries, and many others.

Five Photons: Remarkable Journeys of Light Across Space and Time by James Geach
English | October 15th, 2018 | ISBN: 1780239912 | 192 Pages | EPUB | 4.35 MB

The story of the universe is written in the light that travels through it—the light that we can capture, that is. Nearly everything we know about how the universe works on its grandest scale comes from the analysis of light, of photons that may have journeyed for nearly fourteen billion years to reach us from the Big Bang itself. In Five Photons, astrophysicist James Geach serves as our guide on this cosmic voyage.
