Rosetta's comet: Churyumov-Gerasimenko

by Codex Regius

The world was moved to pity when the little Philae spacecraft jumped on Rosetta’s comet into its undoing. But the European parent probe, Rosetta, continued to orbit the ‘rubber duck‘ comet with the ineffable name and made amazing discoveries. Is 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko really a messenger from that part of the solar system in which the dwarf planets are orbiting: a baby pluto, so to speak?The Rosetta mission has long since been concluded.

Cicada Spring: A Novel

by Christian Galacar

On a warm May evening in the spring of 1979, the people of Heartsridge, Massachusetts, are living the American dream. Families are gathered for barbecues. Kids are playing in front yards. Gardens are being kept. Meanwhile, Kara Price stumbles home through the woods, raped and beaten, her life shattered by a wicked act of violence, perpetrated by one of the town’s most beloved and public figures.

Surrounding Kara is a cast of compelling and nefarious characters—a violent-tempered mayor who can do no wrong in the eyes of the town, a sheriff bound by the rules and plagued by a guilty conscience, a father bent on revenge, a serial killer in the midst of an identity crisis. And at the center of it all there's Kara, who just wants to move on with her life and forget everythin...

Science with the Cherenkov Telescope Array

by The CTA Consortium

This book summarizes the science to be carried out by the upcoming Cherenkov Telescope Array, a major ground-based gamma-ray observatory that will be constructed over the next six to eight years. The major scientific themes, as well as core program of key science projects, have been developed by the CTA Consortium, a collaboration of scientists from many institutions worldwide.CTA will be the major facility in high-energy and very high-energy photon astronomy over the next decade and beyond. CTA will have capabilities well beyond past and present observatories. Thus, CTA's science program is expected to be rich and broad and will complement other major multiwavelength and multimessenger facilities. This book is intended to be the primary resource for the science case for CTA and it thus wi...

Science Illustrated: Mega Rockets

by Enyo Richie

Yeah okay that’s pretty terrible Latin, but it’smeant to be a play on the oldair force motto “per ardua adastra”, or “through adversityto the stars”. In this case, it’sthrough a huge flame. Meh,the Romans didn’t haverockets, I did my best. Please send complaints to theemail below - but only in Latin.Anyway, the point here is that the age of thebig lifters may be dawning anew. Space-X testedits Falcon Heavy this year, a test that ended witha truly spectacular synchronised dual-boosterlanding, and that’s the little one in the newgeneration. Our feature starting on page 24 detailsthe lineup, but of particular interest is NASA’sSpace Launch System (below, left).Following the cancellation of the Constellationprogram and the Ares I and Ares V Mars-shotrockets, NASA had to com...

Sky and Telescope : The Essential Book of Astronomy

by Richard Jones

TO BORROW SOME WORDS from the title of a famous book and movie,the adventure of amateur astronomy really is a ‘never-ending story’. Ourcosmic vistas are essentially unlimited, even by aperture — for no matterwhat the size of our observing instrument(s), we can never hope to do morethan just scratch the surface of all the planetary, galactic and intergalacticpossibilities out there in the Universe.Which I guess is why many of us tend to specialise in one field oranother, whether that be hunting faint fuzzies or scanning for comets. In2018, there’ll pretty much be something for everyone. If you’re into theMoon, we’ll have two total lunar eclipses. If you’re into planets, we’ll havethe opposition of Mars in July (the best one in years). If you’re into deepsky observing, you ...

Solar Particle Radiation Storms Forecasting and Analysis: The HESPERIA HORIZON 2020 Project and Beyond (Astrophysics and Space Science Library Book 444)

by Olga E. Malandraki

Solar energetic particles (SEPs) emitted from the Sun are a major space weather hazard motivating the development of predictive capabilities. This book presents the results and findings of the HESPERIA (High Energy Solar Particle Events forecasting and Analysis) project of the EU HORIZON 2020 programme. It discusses the forecasting operational tools developed within the project, and presents progress to SEP research contributed by HESPERIA both from the observational as well as the SEP modelling perspective. Using multi-frequency observational data and simulations HESPERIA investigated the chain of processes from particle acceleration in the corona, particle transport in the magnetically complex corona and interplanetary space, to the detection near 1 AU. The book also elaborates on the un...
