Rare earth : why complex life is uncommon in the universe by Peter Douglas Ward ( Book )
34 editions published between 1999 and 2005 in English and Portuguese and held by 1,887 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In this introduction to the emerging field of astrobiology, a distinguished paleontologist and a noted astronomer team up to provide a fascinating synthesis of what's now known about the rise of life on Earth and how it sheds light on possibilities for organic life forms elsewhere in the universe. Illustrations. First book to synthesize discoveries from astronomy & paleontology regarding the advent of life on earth, & the potential for the development of life on other planets
The life and death of planet Earth : how the new science of astrobiology charts the ultimate fate of our world by Peter Douglas Ward ( Book )
15 editions published between 2002 and 2007 in English and held by 1,138 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Planet Earth is middle-aged. Science has worked hard to piece together the story of the evolution of our world up to this point, but only recently have we developed the understanding and the tools to describe the entire life cycle of a planet. Ward and Brownlee, a geologist and an astronomer respectively, combine their knowledge of how the critical sustaining systems of our planet evolve through time with their understanding of the life cycles of stars and solar systems, to tell the story of the second half of Earth's life. The process of evolution will essentially reverse itself: life as we know it will subside until only the simplest forms remain. Eventually, they too will disappear. The oceans will evaporate, the atmosphere will degrade, and, as the sun slowly expands, Earth itself will eventually meet a fiery end. --From publisher description
