Description : “New Eyes on the Universe – Twelve Cosmic Mysteries and the Tools We Need to Solve Them” gives an up-to-date broad overview of some of the key issues in modern astronomy and cosmology. It describes the vast amount of observational data that the new generation of observatories and telescopes are currently producing, and how that data might solve some of the outstanding puzzles inherent in our emerging world view. Included are questions such as: What is causing the Universe to blow itself apart? What could be powering the luminous gamma-ray bursters? Where is all the matter in the Universe? Do other Earths exist? Is there intelligent life out there? The renowned author explains clearly, without recourse to mathematics, why each question is puzzling and worthy of research. Included in the study of the wide range of sensitive and powerful instruments used by scientists to try and solve these problems are ones which capture electromagnetic radiation and ‘telescopes’ for cosmic rays, neutrinos, gravitational waves, and dark matter. This book discusses twelve areas of active astronomical research, ranging from the nature of dark energy to the existence or otherwise of extraterrestrial civilizations, and devotes one chapter to each topic. Although astronomers tackle each of these questions using information gleaned from all possible wavelengths and sources (and this is emphasized throughout the book), in this work the author dedicates each chapter to a particular observational method. One chapter covers X-ray telescopes for investigating black holes, while another uses infrared telescopes to learn more about planetary information.

Description : Cooking Cosmos is an exciting book that traces the history of men's endeavor to understand the Universe, and answers the eternal questions: "Who made this World?" "Where did it come from?" "How and why did it begin?" Thousands of years of continual interaction with nature has brought mankind to the present stage when we have some inkling about the working of nature. We now know that the Earth, our habitat, is only one of the planets orbiting the Sun. The Sun itself is a star among billions of stars in the Universe. We know that our solar system came into existence some 4.5 billion years ago and it is but only a tiny component of our galaxy, the Milky Way. Our Universe contains some 100 billion of galaxies. We know that the Universe itself came into existence with the Big Bang some 13.7 billion years ago and even now galaxies are receding from each other with ever increasing speed. This book takes you through the intellectual journey of mankind, unraveling the mysteries of the Cosmos. Starting from Aristotle's Earth-centered Universe, it will take you step by step to the Copernican Sun-centered Universe, to Hubble's expanding Universe, to the Big Bang, to the currently accepted accelerating Universe. In the process, the book explores the origin of space-time, black hole, black hole radiation, dark matter, dark energy, quantum gravity, string theory, all in terms comprehensible to general audiences.

Description : In deriving his formulas for gravity, Newton expressed two concerns that have been largely ignored by succeeding generations of astronomers and physicists: the apparent ability of gravity to "act at a distance" and the approximate nature of his final formula. Einstein's General Relativity solved the first concern. But Newton's warning that the "inverse square of distance" rule being an approximation has gone unheeded. The formula's success at predicting so many astronomical observations has blinded scientists to its limitations. Now, greatly improved equipment and measurement techniques have brought Astronomy and Physics to a difficult crossroads of understanding. Observations are being made that don't seem to follow commonly-believed logical conclusions. This work discusses those cases where Newton's integral solutions for gravity must be used and identifies a major new component to gravitational formulas that solves many current "mysteries" of the Cosmos.

Description : From the flat earth to the sun`s chariot traditional spiritual texts seem wedded to outmoded cosmologies that show, at best, the scientific limitations of their authors. The Bhagavata Purana, one of the classical scriptures of Hinduism, seems, at first glance, to be no exception. However, a closer examination of this text reveals unexpected depths of knowledge in ancient cosmology. This shows that the cosmology of the Bhagavata Purana is a sophisticated system, with multiple levels of meaning that encode at least four different astronomical, geographical, and spiritual world models. By viewing the text in the light of modern astronomy, Richard Thompson shows how ancient scientists expressed exact knowledge in apparently mythological terms. Comparison with the ancient traditions of Egypt and the Near East shows early cultural connections between India and these regions including a surprisingly advanced science. However, quantitative science is only part of the picture. This work also offers a clear understanding of how the spiritual dimension was integrated into ancient Indian cosmology.

Description : Explore the universe with today's greatest physicists. In the wake of one of the most groundbreaking scientific breakthroughs in modern times, the March 2014 discovery of gravitational ripples from the Big Bang—an apparent confirmation of Alan Guth and Andrei Linde's theory of cosmic inflation—John Brockman of Edge.org has gathered together some of the world's best minds to explain the universe as we currently know it. The contributors—many pioneering theoretical physicists and cosmologists, including Guth and Linde—provide an extraordinary picture of cosmology as it has developed over the past three decades. Alan Guth and Andrei Linde explain the Inflationary Universe theory. Lee Smolin discusses the nature of time. Lisa Randall and Neil Turok elaborate on the theory of branes, two-dimensional structures arising from string theory—whose existence is central to the cyclic universe. Seth Lloyd investigates how the universe behaves like a self-programming computer. Lawrence Krauss provides fresh insight into gravity, dark matter, and the energy of empty space. Brian Greene and Einstein biographer Walter Isaacson speculate on how Albert Einstein might view the theoretical physics of the twenty-first century. The late Benoit Mandelbrot looks back on a long career devoted to fractal geometry. Plus Nobel Prize winner Frank Wilczek, Astronomer Royal MaRtin Rees, Caltech physicist Sean Carroll, Stanford's Leonard Susskind, Oxford's David Deutsch, Cornell's Steven Strogatz, Albert Einstein Professor in Science at Princeton Paul Steinhardt, and more!

Description : A new look at the first few seconds after the Big Bang—and how research into these moments continues to revolutionize our understanding of our universe Scientists in recent decades have made crucial discoveries about how our cosmos evolved over the past 13.8 billion years. But we still know little about what happened in the first seconds after the Big Bang. At the Edge of Time focuses on what we have learned and are striving to understand about this mysterious period at the beginning of cosmic history. Delving into the remarkable science of cosmology, Dan Hooper describes many of the extraordinary questions that scientists are asking about the origin and nature of our world. Hooper examines how the Large Hadron Collider and other experiments re-create the conditions of the Big Bang, how we may finally discover the way dark matter was formed during our universe’s first moments, and how, with new telescopes, we are lifting the veil on the era of cosmic inflation. At the Edge of Time presents an accessible investigation of our universe and its birth.

Description : Exposing problems with Origin of the Universe theories The May/2014 issue of Scientific American highlighted a major calamity theorists working in particle physics admit they're in a state of "confusion" there is "widespread panic" that particle physicists may be barking up the wrong tree Science periodicals, forums, and blog posts suggest revising fundamental principles to resolve the "crisis in physics" Cosmology on Trial is an all-inclusive cosmology journal introducing the reader to many unexplained and unsolved mysteries of the universe. QUOTES FROM PHYSICISTS: "Theoretical physics is at a crossroads right now...In a sense we've entered a very deep crisis." Dr. Neil Turok - Director of the Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics Dr. Lee Smolin - a renowned physicist and bestselling author is pushing for a new paradigm in astrophysics: "We need to make a clean break and embark on a search for a new kind of theory that can be applied to the whole universe - a theory that avoids the confusions and paradoxes, answers the unanswerable questions, and generates genuine physical predictions for cosmological observations." Cosmology on Trial - an Amazon Bestseller by Pierre St. Clair READER'S REVIEW: A great summary study exposing the relevant details regarding modern cosmology, without complex jargon. The author's approach is "Just the facts please, show me the evidence." The Big Bang, Gravity, Quantum Mechanics, and General Relativity are on trial and their apologists go to the witness stand. Will they survive the cross-examinations? A profound eye-opener of inconsistencies taught as "scientific." OTHER REVIEWS: "This book simply makes the very strong point that our cosmology of yesteryear was not based on solid evidence, and our cosmology of today isn't either." V. DiCara - Japan "Scientific progress and complacency go ill together, and St Clair has done a superb job in actually advancing the cause of real science." M. Lyons - USA Cosmology On Trial examines the case for the origin of the universe like an attorney in a court of law Major physicists like Stephen Hawking have to defend the basis for their theories The evidence must be beyond reasonable doubt; similar to the rationale for a jury to decide a case The book reveals that Newtonian physics, General Relativity, Quantum Mechanics, and String Theory have still not proven whether Gravity is a wave, a graviton particle, or even a fabric of spacetime. Gravity is not even included in the Standard Model of Physics although it is ubiquitous. Physicists still do not fully understand Gravity, the most common force in nature. "As a scientist and as an educator, I like the idea that we believe things because there's evidence." Dr. Richard Dawkins - Oxford University Professor and Bestselling Author NASA physicists admit that 96% of the matter and energy in the universe is a mystery. Can today's cosmology be complete if science only understands 4% of the universe? Bestselling author Pierre St Clair digs deep behind the headlines to update the public about the current crisis in physics. What science really knows about the universe and the one issue that is never studied The most important initiative in physics which scientists ignore The five biggest myths of cosmology that are not supported by observation or data QUOTE FROM THE AUTHOR: " Current ideas about the origin of the universe lack verifiable data. In spite of this, many ideas masquerade as relevant theories and compete for greater elegance just like beauty pageant contestants." "If you are interested in coming to grips with just what science knows and does not know about the universe then this book is for you." A. Brennan - Australia"

Description : 'Brilliant. You won't find a clearer, more engaging guide to what we know (or would like to know) about the universe and how it is put together' Bill Bryson Celebrated physicist and global bestselling author Paul Davies tells the story of the universe in thirty cosmological conundrums In the constellation of Eridanus there lurks a cosmic mystery. It's as if something has taken a huge bite out of the universe, leaving a super-void. What could be the culprit? A super massive black hole? Another, bigger universe? Or an expanding vacuum bubble, destined to envelop and annihilate everything in existence? Scientists now understand the history of our universe better than the history of our own planet, but they continue to uncover startling new riddles-the hole in the universe being just one. In this electrifying book, award-winning physicist Paul Davies walks us through the puzzles and paradoxes that have preoccupied cosmologists from ancient Greece to the present day. Laying bare the audacious research that has led us to mind-bending solutions, Davies reveals how we might begin to approach the greatest outstanding enigmas of all.

Description : Humanity's ongoing quest to unlock the secrets of dark matter and dark energy Heart of Darkness describes the incredible saga of humankind's quest to unravel the deepest secrets of the universe. Over the past thirty years, scientists have learned that two little-understood components—dark matter and dark energy—comprise most of the known cosmos, explain the growth of all cosmic structure and hold the key to the universe's fate. The story of how evidence for the so-called "Lambda-Cold Dark Matter" model of cosmology has been gathered by generations of scientists throughout the world is told here by one of the pioneers of the field, Jeremiah Ostriker, and his coauthor Simon Mitton. From humankind's early attempts to comprehend Earth's place in the solar system, to astronomers' exploration of the Milky Way galaxy and the realm of the nebulae beyond, to the detection of the primordial fluctuations of energy from which all subsequent structure developed, this book explains the physics and the history of how the current model of our universe arose and has passed every test hurled at it by the skeptics. Throughout this rich story, an essential theme is emphasized: how three aspects of rational inquiry—the application of direct measurement and observation, the introduction of mathematical modeling, and the requirement that hypotheses should be testable and verifiable—guide scientific progress and underpin our modern cosmological paradigm. This monumental puzzle is far from complete, however, as scientists confront the mysteries of the ultimate causes of cosmic structure formation and the real nature and origin of dark matter and dark energy.

Description : This is a general introduction to grammaticalization, the change whereby lexical terms and constructions come in certain linguistic contexts to serve grammatical functions, and, once grammaticalized, continue to develop new grammatical functions. The authors synthesize work from several areas of linguistics, including historical linguistics, discourse analysis, and pragmatics. Data are drawn from many languages including Ewe, Finnish, French, Hindi, Hittite, Japanese, Malay, and especially English. This second edition has been thoroughly revised with substantial updates on theoretical and methodological issues that have arisen in the decade since the first edition, and includes a significantly expanded bibliography. Particular attention is paid to recent debates over directionality in change and the role of grammaticalization in creolization. Grammaticalization will be a valuable and stimulating textbook for all linguists interested in the development of grammatical forms and will also be of interest to readers in anthropology and psychology.

Description : An accessible look at the mysteries that lurk at the edge of the known universe and beyond The observable universe, the part we can see with telescopes, is incredibly vast. Yet recent theories suggest that there is far more to the universe than what our instruments record—in fact, it could be infinite. Colossal flows of galaxies, large empty regions called voids, and other unexplained phenomena offer clues that our own "bubble universe" could be part of a greater realm called the multiverse. How big is the observable universe? What it is made of? What lies beyond it? Was there a time before the Big Bang? Could space have unseen dimensions? In this book, physicist and science writer Paul Halpern explains what we know—and what we hope to soon find out—about our extraordinary cosmos. Explains what we know about the Big Bang, the accelerating universe, dark energy, dark flow, and dark matter to examine some of the theories about the content of the universe and why its edge is getting farther away from us faster Explores the idea that the observable universe could be a hologram and that everything that happens within it might be written on its edge Written by physicist and popular science writer Paul Halpern, whose other books include Collider: The Search for the World's Smallest Particles, and What's Science Ever Done For Us: What the Simpsons Can Teach Us About Physics, Robots, Life, and the Universe

Description : The ancient mystery saying called on the human being to 'Know Yourself!' Rudolf Steiner explains that this maxim is not asking us to study subjectively our own personal character, but rather to come to a knowledge of our true, archetypal human nature - and with it the position we occupy in the universe. In these eloquent lectures - formerly published as Man, Hieroglyph of the Universe - Rudolf Steiner speaks of the human being as the model of creation, the primary focus of the cosmos. In an extensive exposition he talks of the constellation of cosmic forces, zodiac and planets amongst which we find ourselves situated. Only a true knowledge of our human nature and the spiritual forces which surround us - the microcosm within the greater macrocosm - can enable humanity to progress, he says. This book is an important contribution to that goal: the development of a contemporary spiritual science of the human being.

Description : Cosmic Mysteries By: Carol E. Parrish-Harra In her newest book, Cosmic Mysteries, author Carol E. Parrish-Harra provides deep insights for the exploration of the inner path that can only be detailed by the one who has gleaned awareness through a personal journal. Carol’s work has long been noted for clarity and the details of the path dreamed of by many and traveled by the few. Mysticism within the Occult Tradition is held close, realizing how delicately balanced it is. With many years of esoteric studies, Carol shares her understanding of invisible qualities to be explored and the tests each element—Fire, Air, Water, and Earth—presents to be mastered as they are integrated into human life. The importance of daily mindfulness prepares us to move ourselves into the Christ Mind, brought about by both our choices and Karma as we go forward with little awareness in life.
