Trans-Neptunian objects and comets : Swiss society for astrophysics and astronomy by D Jewitt( )

25 editions published between 2007 and 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 448 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the last two decades of the 20th century, we obtained our first detailed look at a cometary nucleus and detected objects in the Kuiper-Edgeworth Belt for the first time. These two observations have resulted in a major leap forward in our understanding of small bodies in our Solar System. Combined with powerful new approaches to the study of Solar System dynamics, progress within the last 20 years has been staggering. This book attempts to synthesize these new findings in a manner which is readable for new graduate students in the field."--Jacket
Protostars and planets V by Protostars and Planets( Book )

8 editions published between 2005 and 2007 in English and held by 167 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

'Protostars and Planets V' builds on the latest results from recent advances in ground and space-based astronomy and in numerical computing techniques to offer the most detailed and up-to-date picture of star and planet formation - including the formation and early evolution of our own solar system
Minor bodies in the outer solar system : proceedings of the ESO workshop held at Garching, Germany, 2-5 November 1998 by ESO Workshop( Book )

7 editions published between 2000 and 2011 in English and held by 163 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume tries to summarize the status of observational knowledge of the Kuiper Belt. Its recent discovery has revitalized the astromomical study of the Solar System and is beginning to open new and unexpected windows on the physics of planetesimal accretion. With more and better observational data being obtained at the technological limit of current facilities, a new perception of the relationships that exist among the various classes of small Solar System bodies has emerged. The new observations have also motivated a number of fascinating theoretical studies in Solar System dynamics
Kuiper Belt objects along the Pluto-Express path by D Jewitt( Book )

3 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 81 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The science objective of this work is to identify objects in the Kuiper Belt which will, in the 5 years following Pluto encounter, be close to the flight path of NASA's Pluto Express. Our hope is that we will find a Kuiper Belt object or objects close enough that a spacecraft flyby will be possible. If we find a suitable object, the science yield of Pluto Express will be substantially enhanced. The density of objects in the Kuiper Belt is such that we are reasonably likely to find an object close enough to the flight path that on-board gas thrusters can effect a close encounter
I. Physical studies of distant comets. : II. Morphologies of planetary nebulae by D Jewitt( )

3 editions published between 1983 and 1984 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Solar System Beyond Neptune( Book )

2 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The aim of this research is to assess the contents of the trans-Neptunian solar system. Previously thought to be empty, the region beyond Neptune is now known to hold a vast abundance of bodies dating from the earliest phases of the solar system. We have pioneered the application of charge coupled device (CCD) surveys as a means to locate and identify Kuiper Belt objects. The present research aims to drive these techniques to their limit, in order to increase the observational sample as much as possible
Planètes naines, météorites, astéroïdes et comètes : ces objets célestes qui nous racontent les débuts du Système solaire( Book )

Three galileos : the man, the spacecraft, the telescope by D Jewitt( Book )

2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Trans-Neptunian objects and comets ; Saas-Fee Advanced Course 35 ; Swiss Society for Astrophysics and Astronomy by D Jewitt( Book )

Divers do it deeper by Ke ji qi ye gu fen you xian gong si( Visual )

1 edition published in 1978 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Looks at the saturation diver who, for 3 weeks, lives in a pressurised atmosphere of helium and oxygen at 500 feet below the sea surface. He is now an essential part of the technology for extracting North Sea oil. Discusses the hazards of helium diving which include the 'bends', nitrogen narcosis, and more recently occurrences of bone necrosis
The Shaw Prize 2012( Visual )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"The Shaw Prize is in its 9th year, and sharing the award in Life Science and Medicine is Dr. Ulrich Hartl of the Max Planck Institute in Germany and Dr. Arthur Horwich of Yale University. They discovered that protein folding in cells needs molecular chaperones. This is now fundamental to cellular biology but has wide implications in the treatment of diseases, because cells become toxic when protein misfolds and forms aggregates."--TVB web site
Satélites Irregulares by D Jewitt( )

in Spanish and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Se creía que las mayoría de las lunas se formaban en discos que rodeaban a sus planetas respectivos, repitiendo en miniatura la formación del sistema solar. Por eso orbitaban casi todas en el mismo plano del ecuador planetario y en a misma dirección de la rotación del planeta. Se llamaba "irregulares" a las lunas conocidas que no cumplían esos criterios. La lluvia reciente de descubrimientos propiciados por los últimos detectores digitales revela que la mayoría de las lunas son irregulares. Sus órbitas elongadas, abiertas e inclinadas indican que no se formaron donde hoy se encuentran, sino en otras regiones, donde orbitaban alrededor del sol. No son más que asteriodes o cometas atrapados por los planetas. No se conocen bien ni la región de procedencia ni los mecanismos de captura. Podrían provenir del cinturón de Kuiper, más alla de neptuno, o de regiones más interiores. Su captura quizá se debiese a choques o interacciones en el sistema solar joven, cuando su población era más densa
Oceans from the skies by D Jewitt( Book )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Coma formation driven by carbon monoxide release from comet Schwassmann-Wachmann 1 by Matthew C Senay( Book )

1 edition published in 1994 in Undetermined and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The sun and the heliopsphere [i.e. heliosphere] as an integrated system by G Poletto( Book )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This book, for the first time, ties together physical processes across the full scale of the heliosphere. It is about the natural connections that exist between the various parts of the system. Therefore, it is mainly cast in terms of those mechanisms and phenomena rather than individual missions in space. However, to give credit, this has only been possible because of the existence of a fleet of deep space missions such as Ulysses, SOHO, and the Voyagers. It is only with them working in concert that a real understanding of the physics can be, and has been achieved. There are fourteen chapters in the book written by top scientists from around the world. The level of presentation is very high but the authors were given enough space to present understandable introductions, physical discussions, and extensive bibliographies. The audience for this book consists of graduate students and researchers in astronomy as well as specialists in solar physics and interplanetary plasma physics
