Introduction to Planetary Geomorphology by Ronald Greeley

By Ronald Greeley

Approximately all significant planets and moons in our sun approach were visited through spacecraft and the information they've got back has published the exceptional range of planetary surfaces. that includes a wealth of pictures, this textbook explores the geological evolution of the planets and moons. Introductory chapters speak about how details accrued from spacecraft is used to resolve the geological complexities of our sunlight approach. next chapters concentrate on present understandings of planetary structures. The textbook indicates how planetary photos and distant sensing info are analyzed during the software of primary geological ideas. It attracts on effects from spacecraft despatched through the sunlight method through NASA and different area corporations. geared toward undergraduate scholars in planetary geology, geoscience, astronomy and sunlight procedure technology, it highlights the variations and similarities of the surfaces at a degree that may be effectively understood by way of non-specialists

Star Maps: History, Artistry, and Cartography by Nick Kanas

By Nick Kanas

With the development of the foreign area Station, and new plans for manned missions to the Moon, Mars and past, there's renewed curiosity within the heavens. An ever-increasing variety of individuals are interested by the technological know-how of house and have gotten beginner astronomers.

The good looks and awe generated by way of the celestial void catch our mind's eye and pleasure our aesthetic feel. Antiquarian map societies are prospering, and celestial maps are actually seen as a forte of map collecting.

This ebook strains the historical past of celestial cartography and relates this background to the altering rules of man’s position within the universe and to advances in map-making.

Reproductions of maps from antiquarian celestial atlases and prints, many formerly unpublished in booklet shape, increase the textual content, and a legend accompanies each one representation to provide an explanation for its astronomical and cartographic features.

Also integrated within the e-book are discussions of non-European celestial maps and chapters on early American impacts and celestial map-collecting.

The booklet describes the improvement and relationships among diverse sky maps and atlases in addition to demons

Sidereus Nuncius by Galileo Galilei, Albert Van Helden

By Galileo Galilei, Albert Van Helden

;Sidereus Nuncius КНИГИ ; ИСТОРИЯ Автор:Galileo Galileo Название: Sidereus Nuncius Издательство: Venice Год: 1610 Формат: PDF Размер: 109 МБ Для сайта: www.mirknig.comИсторики науки почти единодушно считают, что Галилей если не изобрел, то усовершенствовал телескоп. Он изготовил трубу с увеличением в 30 раз и в августе 1609 продемонстрировал ее сенату Венеции. С помощью своей трубы Галилей начал наблюдение ночного неба. Результаты его наблюдений и составили эту книгу. Мысли, высказанные Галилеем в Звездном вестнике, никак не вписывались в рамки аристотелевского мировоззрения. Они совпадали со взглядами Коперника и Бруно. Так, Галилей считал Луну сходной по своей природе с Землей, а с точки зрения Аристотеля (и церкви) не могло быть и речи о подобии «земного» и «небесного». Так начались его расхождения со святой Инквизицией...Раритет - первоиздание звездных наблюдений Галилея. Была издана огромным по тем временам тиражом - 550 экземпляров, и практически сразу была издана пиратская копия этого произведения с рисунками, не слишком искусно исполненными в технике ксилографии. Книга оцифрована известной компанией eightvo, специализирующейся на высококачественном копировании старинных книг и манускриптов.0
