Exploring the Physics of the Unknown Universe: An Adventurers Guide

Exploring the Physics of the Unknown Universe: An Adventurers Guide Lowest new price: $22.49
Lowest used price: $6.85
List price: $15.00
Author: Milo Wolff
Brand: Brand: Technotran

Part I describes the fundamental laws underlying science. The emphasis is on intuitive understanding of the foundations of scientific knowledge to enable deciphering of Mother Nature's designs for the physical universe. It explains the six fundamental laws: Conservation of Energy, Gravity, Coulomb's force, Newton's laws, Quantum Mechanics, and Special Relativity. The book follows a trail of scientific ideas and clues from the Greeks to Newton, Mach, Clifford, Einstein, Dirac, and Feynman to Modern galactic astronomy.

Part II discusses cosmology, space and the universe. It explores their enigmas and paradoxes. Dr Wolff's role is a friendly guide to the reader, enabling her/him to understand the machinery behind Nature's laws, and to help solve the puzzles which have confounded scientists over the years. The century-old controversy of wave structure or substance structure of particles is examined and it is shown that a wave structure is the probable origin of the natural laws. The mysterious role of space itself is explored and the reader is asked and helped to choose between truth and prejudice.

Cosmos

Lowest new price: $55.10
Lowest used price: $4.00
List price: $113.94
Author: Carl Sagan

This visually stunning book with over 250 full-color illustrations, many of them never before published, is based on Carl Sagan’s thirteen-part television series. Told with Sagan’s remarkable ability to make scientific ideas both comprehensible and exciting, Cosmos is about science in its broadest human context, how science and civilization grew up together.

The book also explores spacecraft missions of discovery of the nearby planets, the research in the Library of ancient Alexandria, the human brain, Egyptian hieroglyphics, the origin of life, the death of the Sun, the evolution of galaxies and the origins of matter, suns and worlds.

Sagan retraces the fifteen billion years of cos-mic evolution that have transformed matter into life and consciousness, enabling the Cosmos to wonder about itself. He considers the latest findings on life elsewhere and how we might communicate with the beings of other worlds.

Cosmos is the story of our long journey of discovery and the forces and individuals who helped to shape modern science, including Democritus, Hypatia, Kepler, Newton, Huy-gens, Champollion, Lowell and Humason. Sagan looks at our planet from an extra-terrestrial vantage point and sees a blue jewel-like world, inhabited by a lifeform that is just beginning to discover its own unity and to ven-ture into the vast ocean of space.

Cosmos was the first science TV blockbuster, and Carl Sagan was its (human) star. By the time of Sagan's death in 1996, the series had been seen by half a billion people; Sagan was perhaps the best-known scientist on the planet. Explaining how the series came about, Sagan recalled:

I was positive from my own experience that an enormous global interest exists in the exploration of the planets and in many kindred scientific topics--the origin of life, the Earth, and the Cosmos, the search for extraterrestrial intelligence, our connection with the universe. And I was certain that this interest could be excited through that most powerful communications medium, television.

Sagan's own interest and enthusiasm for the universe were so vivid and infectious, his screen presence so engaging, that viewers and readers couldn't help but be caught up in his vision. From stars in their "billions and billions" to the amino acids in the primordial ocean, Sagan communicated a feeling for science as a process of discovery. Inevitably, some of the science in Cosmos has been outdated in the years since 1980--but Sagan's sense of wonder is ageless. --Mary Ellen Curtin

Author: Hans Stephani

This book is an excellent introduction to the subjects of gravitation and space-time structure. It presumes a good background in special relativity, electrodynamics, and classical mechanics. The book discusses the foundations of Riemannian geometry; the derivation of the Einstein field equations; linearised theory, far fields and gravitational waves; the invariant characterization of exact solutions; gravitational collapse; cosmology; and a final chapter deals with alternative gravitation theories and the problem of quantum gravity. This revised and correct edition brings the experimental evidence up to date. In addition, the sections on quantum gravity have been rewritten and enlarged, and now form a coherent introduction to this subject.

The constants of nature are the numbers that define the essence of the Universe. They tell us how strong its forces are, and what its fundamental laws can do: the strength of gravity, of magnetism, the speed of light, and the masses of the smallest particles of matter. They encode the deepest secrets of the Universe and exp


Historical Deception: The Untold Story of Ancient Egypt

Historical Deception: The Untold Story of Ancient Egypt Lowest new price: $26.00
Lowest used price: $5.01
List price: $19.95
Author: Moustafa Gadalla
Brand: Brand: Tehuti Research Foundation

This book provides a fresh, exciting, and reader-friendly study of the Ancient Egyptian history, which has suffered and continues to suffer from ingrained prejudices. The book, therefore, brings to light:

A. Historical events that have been ignored by many Egyptologists because of the risk of contradicting popular religions.

Scholars have been unsuccessfully looking for historical evidence to support the biblical accounts of events and their major characters.

This book provides the evidence that these scholars continue to search in the wrong country and the wrong eras.

The facts presented in this book are simple, straightforward and stunning, showing that the major characters in the Bible were actually Egyptian Pharaohs, and not the enemies of Egypt.

B. The advanced level of the Ancient Egyptian civilization, such as:
- The high status of women, which has not been equalled throughout history, even in present times.
- The Egyptian spiritual roots of George Washington, Napoleon and Mozart. All these famous people were masons, whose rites, knowledge, and traditions originated in Ancient Egypt.
- The Ancient Egyptian calendar - the most accurate ever--past and present.
- Their medical knowledge about determining the sex of the unborn child.
- Their knowledge and use of the different types of antibiotics.
- Their superior medicine. A single prescription included as many as 35 different ingredients.
- Their advanced knowledge in science, technology, metals and industry.

Understanding the Two-State Universe

Understanding the Two-State Universe Lowest new price: $13.95
Lowest used price: $86.82
List price: $13.95
Author: Angelo Molinaro

Understanding The Two State Universe describes a new theory of the universe, proposing that the universe is neither three nor four-dimensional. Rather, it is a two-state universe where everything exists as complements separated by time or space. Using this new theory, the author describes the G factor, a new theory of gravity, a unified field theory, how the atom bomb really works, the aether, why the Michelson-Morley experiment failed, black holes, singularities, speeds faster than light, the dual nature of light, the boundaries of the universe, a solution to the chicken-or-the-egg riddle, and much, much more.

The Bible According to Einstein: A Scientific Complement to the Holy Bible for the Third Millennium Lowest new price: $58.25

Author: Jupiter Scientific Publishing Company
Brand: Brand: Jupiter Scientific

(Inside jacket flap text) An important moment in science has arrived. During the past few centuries, human knowledge of Nature has increased manyfold. Scientists are now able to do things previously thought to be impossible: The fabrication of exotic kinds of matter that do not exist in Nature, the exploration of outer space by sophisticated man- made probes, and the cloning of life forms are just a few examples. We have achieved a new understanding of how the Universe works. This knowledge is precious, almost sacred -- it is the culmination of the efforts of countless scientists. The philosophical implications are immense: We now see our place in the Universe differently than we did a few centuries ago. The age of scientific enlightenment is upon us.

This knowledge has now been assembled in a single book. The Bible According to Einstein is a comprehensive compendium of scientific discoveries and insights. Adopting a biblical format, it is divided into two works: an "Old Testament" and a "New Testament."

What was the Universe like during the initial moments of Creation? When did the stars and galaxies appear? How did the Sun and Earth form? In the "Old Testament," the history of the Universe is narrated from the beginning to the present. The remarkable geological and biological evolution of our planet is "resurrected in words," starting with the emergence of life, continuing to the growth of complex organisms, moving to the reign of the ruling reptiles, and ending with the appearance of mammals and man. The development of our Universe and our World is an amazing story.

What are the natural "commandments" that govern all? How did human spirituality and intelligence emerge? After addressing these questions, the "New Testament" goes on to deliver the laws of Nature and to reveal the extraordinary workmanship of the Universe. Here the reader discovers Nature's fundamental elements: from the quark to the atom, from the double helix DNA molecule to the cell, from the Earth to the celestial heaven. Unveiled is the intrinsic beauty of our Universe.

The great physicist and Nobel laureate Richard Feynman once said (in slightly different words): The fact that I understand this rose -- the light reflected off its surface, how it is composed of cells, why it is red, the evolutionary origin of the bees' attraction to it, and so on -- these things do not in any way diminish my appreciation of its beauty. In fact, they enhance my ability to enjoy the rose.

Look inside this book and experience the World. Discover the knowledge of "Nature's gospels." Here before you is an offering -- the gift of scientific enlightenment.
