New Releases. Starting with their electronic workings, it discusses their basic characteristics and then gives methods and examples of how to determine these values. While the book focuses on the use of CCDs in professional observational astronomy, advanced amateur astronomers, and researchers in physics, chemistry, medical imaging, and remote sensing will also find it very valuable.meyecontrol-staging.admost.de/360-color-paintings-of-henri-de-toulouse-lautrec.php

Tables of useful and hard-to-find data, key practical equations, and new exercises round off the book and ensure that it provides an ideal introduction to the practical use of CCDs for graduate students, and a handy reference for more experienced users. Other books in this series. Add to basket. Table of contents Prefaces; 1. As the space program developed from Mercury to Apollo, so too did its photo program. As the title of the book suggests, most of the photos in the book were taken during the era of crewed lunar missions to the Moon.

But Bizony travels forward in the timeline as well to discuss images from space shuttle missions and the various space stations that have orbited Earth. Both space fans and photography buffs will like this book. Mark Bowen has been tracking the search for neutrinos — an elementary particle, incredibly difficult to detect — since Back then, the leading neutrino project was known as the Antarctic Muon and Neutrino Detector Array AMANDA , and it was still early days in the quest to embed a detector sensitive enough to detect a super-small-mass particle under the ice at the South Pole.
Bowen provides a lucid explanation of elementary particles and fundamental forces, as well as a colorful history of the first scientists to puzzle through the workings of these theoretical at first particles. But most of the book is focused on the present and recent past, when physicists and engineers worked collaboratively although not without conflict across decades to design and construct a particle detector at the South Pole. The physical structure of the well-functioning IceCube Neutrino Observatory is mind-boggling: imagine drilling 86 holes some 3.
Once the holes are drilled, you need to dangle 86 separate strings, each with 60 optical sensors into the holes, then peg out the top of each string at a depth of 1. Capturing evidence of supernovae, black hole collisions, dark matter? If you like your science nonfiction to read like an adventure story think Eiger Dreams with fewer mountains , The Telescope in the Ice is the book for you. Beyond that, there are dozens of other reasons to pick up the Handbook several times a week. When will a lunar occultation be visible from my location?
How are stars classified by spectra? One of the most difficult concepts to convey to the curious is scale. Do you remember sitting in your high school or university astronomy course, wondering exactly how long 10 27 meters really was? When your instructor told you that was the distance light could travel in about 93 billion years, did it really clear things up for you? Probably not. In The Zoomable Universe , Caleb Sharf , director of the Columbia Astrobiology Center, and science illustrator Ron Miller have teamed up with 5W Infographics to help us wrap our minds around the greatest and smallest of all distances — from the limits of the observable universe 10 27 meters to the subatomic realm 10 meters.
In other words, we zoom from the largest to the smallest scales currently imaginable, step by step, and leap by leap. The illustrations are engaging and used to good effect.

Just a single example: when we start looking at distances within our own solar system, say from about 10 13 to 10 9 meters from Earth, we get a good lesson on planetary structure and composition. The authors even manage to wedge in a nice and more importantly, relevant spread on exoplanets in this section.
