Time travel in Einstein's universe : the physical possibilities of travel through time by J. Richard Gott( Book )

42 editions published between 2001 and 2015 in 6 languages and held by 1,824 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"[The author] leads time travel out of the land of science fiction and into the realm of possibility with an exciting new theory about the origin of the universe."--Jacket
Welcome to the universe : an astrophysical tour by Neil deGrasse Tyson( Book )

10 editions published between 2016 and 2018 in 3 languages and held by 1,360 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Welcome to the Universe is a personal guided tour of the cosmos by three of today's leading astrophysicists. Inspired by the enormously popular introductory astronomy course that Neil deGrasse Tyson, Michael A. Strauss, and J. Richard Gott taught together at Princeton, this book covers it all--from planets, stars, and galaxies to black holes, wormholes, and time travel. Describing the latest discoveries in astrophysics, the informative and entertaining narrative propels you from our home solar system to the outermost frontiers of space. How do stars live and die? Why did Pluto lose its planetary status? What are the prospects of intelligent life elsewhere in the universe? How did the universe begin? Why is it expanding and why is its expansion accelerating? Is our universe alone or part of an infinite multiverse? Answering these and many other questions, the authors open your eyes to the wonders of the cosmos, sharing their knowledge of how the universe works. Breathtaking in scope and stunningly illustrated throughout, Welcome to the Universe is for those who hunger for insights into our evolving universe that only world-class astrophysicists can provide--Publisher's description
Sizing up the universe : the cosmos in perspective by J. Richard Gott( Book )

5 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 436 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Using scaled maps, object comparisons, and beautiful space photographs, it demonstrates the actual size of objects in the cosmos- from Buz Aldrin's historic footprint to the visible universe and beyond. The authors offer visual comparisons with astonishing precision and maximum reader-friendliness, conveying clear and understandable explanations of unimaginable vastness
Welcome to the universe : the problem book by Neil deGrasse Tyson( Book )

3 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 98 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Here is the essential companion to Welcome to the Universe, a New York Times bestseller that was inspired by the enormously popular introductory astronomy course for non science majors that Neil deGrasse Tyson, Michael A. Strauss, and J. Richard Gott taught together at Princeton. This problem book features more than one hundred problems and exercises used in the original course-ideal for anyone who wants to deepen their understanding of the original material and to learn to think like an astrophysicist.Whether you're a student or teacher, citizen scientist or science enthusiast, your guided tour of the cosmos just got even more hands-on with Welcome to the Universe: The Problem Book.The essential companion book to the acclaimed bestseller features the problems used in the original introductory astronomy course for non science majors at Princeton University organized according to the structure of Welcome to the Universe, empowering readers to explore real astrophysical problems that are conceptually introduced in each chapter. Problems are designed to stimulate physical insight into the frontier of astrophysics. Problems develop quantitative skills, yet use math no more advanced than high school algebra. Problems are often multipart, building critical thinking and quantitative skills and developing readers' insight into what astrophysicists do. Ideal for course use-either in tandem with Welcome to the Universe or as a supplement to courses using standard astronomy textbooks or self-study. Tested in the classroom over numerous semesters for decades. Prefaced with a review of relevant concepts and equations. Full solutions and explanations are provided, allowing students and other readers to check their own understanding"-- Publisher description

The eighth data release of the Sloan Digital Sky Survey : first data from SDSS-III by Hiroaki Aihara( Book )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"The Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS) started a new phase in 2008 August, with new instrumentation and new surveys focused on Galactic structure and chemical evolution, measurements of the baryon oscillation feature in the clustering of galaxies and the quasar Ly[Greek letter alpha] forest, and a radial velocity search for planets around ~8000 stars. This paper describes the first data release of SDSS-III (and the eighth counting from the beginning of the SDSS). The release includes five-band imaging of roughly 5200 deg2 in the southern Galactic cap, bringing the total footprint of the SDSS imaging to 14,555 deg2, or over a third of the Celestial Sphere. All the imaging data have been reprocessed with an improved sky-subtraction algorithm and a final, self-consistent photometric recalibration and flat-field determination. This release also includes all data from the second phase of the Sloan Extension for Galactic Understanding and Exploration (SEGUE-2), consisting of spectroscopy of approximately 118,000 stars at both high and low Galactic latitudes. All the more than half a million stellar spectra obtained with the SDSS spectrograph have been reprocessed through an improved stellar parameter pipeline, which has better determinationof metallicity for high-metallicity stars."
Where did the Moon come from? by Edward Belbruno( Book )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"The current standard theory of the origin of the Moon is that Earth was hit by a giant impactor the size of Mars, causing ejection of iron-poor impactor mantle debris that coalesced to form the Moon. But where did this Mars-sized impactor come from? Isotopic evidence suggests that it came from 1 AU radius in the solar nebula, and computer simulations are consistent with its approaching Earth on a zero-energy parabolic trajectory. But how could such a large object form in the disk of planetesimals at 1 AU without colliding with Earth early on, before having a chance to grow large or before its or Earth's iron core had formed? We propose that the giant impactor could have formed in a stable orbit among debris at Earth's L4 (or L5) Lagrange point. We show that such a configuration is stable, even for a Mars-sized impactor. It could grow gradually by accretion at L4 (or L5), but eventually gravitational interactions with other growing planetesimals could kick it out into a chaotic creeping orbit, which we show would likely cause it to hit Earth on a zero-energy parabolic trajectory. We argue that this scenario is possible and should be further studied."
