Our Cosmic Story: Exploring Life, Civilization, and the Universe

by Mathew Anderson

Our Cosmic Story is a big picture view of our Universe and the potential it has for life and civilization. We start by looking back at the story of Earth and its great civilizations, understand how life itself evolved Homo sapiens, briefly review the challenges and risks that a species entails in developing a civilization and growing into a space-fairing entity, and then explore the makeup of the Universe to gain insight into the chance of other sentient creatures living elsewhere.The quest to reach beyond the confines of our world is a natural consequence of being a very small part of a grand and dynamic Universe. Looking up at the sky instills within us some expectation that we are not alone, and we wonder if there is not something amazing happening out there somewhere. This sense of awe...

Titan: Pluto's big brother: The Cassini-Huygens spacecraft and the darkest moon of Saturn

by Codex Regius and Dr Rainer Riemann

Mars is not the world that would be suited best for human settlement. That is - despite its huge distance from Earth - Saturn’s moon Titan which, today, looks to us like a big brother of Pluto. That which the doomed Cassini-Huygens spacecraft has shown us is a world that looks homely to human eyes and yet immeasurably alien."Pluto & Charon" is intended for armchair astronomers and other interested readers who have some basic knowledge of astronomy and other natural sciences but are more interested in colour images than in charts and equations.Including a foreword by Dr Rainer Riemann, active contributor to the Cassini-Huygens mission....

Earth’s Magnetic Field Secrets: An Illusion Mixed With Reality

by Dennis Brooks

An Illusion Mixed with RealityEstimations show that planet Earth is tilted away from its magnetic axes because of its misalignment and the other forces acting on it. This means that if the planet could slowdown both its rotation and orbit, its axis of rotation will move closer to its magnetic axis. With Earth, the separation between the axes occurs because the planet’s core is anchored to the magnetic apex, but the poles are not anchored in space. They are free to move. This creates a complex illusion that is part fact and part fiction. It is a fact that we can see two different axes, geographic and magnetic. It is fiction because mathematically, the planet is only rotating on its magnetic axis. However, the axis of rotation is forced to tilt away from the magnetic axis because of the of...

The Science of the Stars

by E. Walter Maunder

This is a concise but comprehensive look at astronomy, including not just the science behind it but the history of past astronomers, including before the use of telescopes.From the beginning:“The plan of the present series requires each volume to be complete in about eighty small pages. But no adequate account of the achievements of astronomy can possibly be given within limits so narrow, for so small a space would not suffice for a mere catalogue of the results which have been obtained; and in most cases the result alone would be almost meaningless unless some explanation were offered of the way in which it had been reached. All, therefore, that can be done in a work of the present size is to take the student to the starting-point of astronomy, show him the various roads of research whi...

Prologue:
In the year 2036 an asteroid collides with the moon. The moon was destroyed. The lunar dust rained down on the earth for years blocking out the sun and contaminating the oceans. The earth is now uninhabitable and squalid.
The richest and smartest people on the planet knew about the asteroid 20 years in advance. They started building a space station the size of the moon to live on. Three other space stations were built too. The Russians also build a space station on the Moon Europa orbiting Jupiter. The military lived on a barrack on the red planet Mars. The last space station housed the humans and e-humans, located at the edge of the solar system.

An Introduction to Telescopes: Beginners in Astronomy

by Gerard Strong

A brief outline of the different types of telescope.

There is no perfect telescope. Each one, as long as it is of reasonable quality, will show you fascinating things, although in general the more you pay the more you'll see. Many people have more than one telescope, just as a golfer has more than one golf club. Hopefully, as you read on you will be able to decide which is the right one for you.

Visit a star party or telescope shop, or glance through an astronomy magazine in search of your first telescope, and you may decide that the whole business is a daunting challenge. And in some ways you'd be right. There really are dozens of options, and you can easily end up with something that you're disappointed with and end up not using at all. It all makes choosing a c...
