    It's a mission that Tyson has taken up with enthusiasm and authority, and in his latest book, Astrophysics for People in a Hurry, he's assigned himself what may be his most subtly challenging task yet: a condensation of the essential insights of twenty-first-century astrophysics -- and the astonishing history of science that led to them -- into. In Number 4 of our ongoing series, “The Top Ten Reasons in the Universe is Electric,” we explore an ongoing astrophysical enigma — the Fermi Bubbles, giant gamma ray structures which scientists have dubbed “incandescent bulbs screwed into the center of the galaxy.” In this episode, we explore why such Continue reading. Back to the Hubble Enigma: The same model, applied to the Universe, leads straightforward to the result, that the Hubble-constant is H0= ku/2, where ku is the radiative mass loss constant of the.

The book is a collection of essays written by Joseph Silk through the years, and some of them Astrophysical enigmas book been rewritten in order to capture the new developments in astronomy and astrophysics.

Although it is a popularization book, the reader is expected to have some general knowledge of physics in order to understand the arguments of the s: 2. Another special feature of this book is the focus of the text on fluid dynamics, per se. The astrophysics is mainly given in the examples and exercises.

We believe that a good and broad command of fluid dynamics can be more fruitful in approaching outstanding astrophysical problems than a review of known classical problems. Astrophysics—some introductory remarks • Astronomy is with mathematics one of the oldest branches of science. It has served as basis for calendars, navigation.

The Shroud of Turin. Although the Vatican has affirmed that it is not authentic, the Holy Shroud remains an unsolved mystery for humanity.

It is a shroud with an imprinted image of a bearded male adult on it. Throughout the fabric, there are signs of blood, which shows that this man was probably crucified and then his body was covered with this piece of cloth.

Introductory astrophysics book recommendations - posted in Astro Art, Books, Websites & Other Media: I have been successfully using the S&T Pocket Sky Atlas and the 1st edition of the Observers Sky Atlas and now want to deepen my understanding of astronomy/astrophysics.

In terms of preference, I am not interested in star lore / mythology etc. Additionally, I understand 1st semester.

In this book we will explore this dark enigma and introduce the cosmologist's toolkit of observations and techniques that allow us to confront different theories on the dark Universe.

I'll explain why I believe that, to truly understand the dark Universe, we will need some. In mathematics, the witch of Agnesi (Italian pronunciation:) is a cubic plane curve defined from two diametrically opposite points of a circle.

In this first chapter, we explore the significance of the astrophysical enigma of pervasive cosmic magnetic fields. Basic physics classes teach that electric currents produce magnetic fields.

In this pioneering book, a completely new thesis has been parsed out from ancient texts and modern astrophysical data: our sun may be part of a binary star system.” — John Major Jenkins, author, Maya Cosmogenesis and Galactic Alignment.

JUST WEST OF VEGA, BUT MUCH FARTHER away, lies an astrophysical enigma: a quasar displaying extremely rapid variations in its radio brightness. Now two Dutch astronomers have found the solution to the puzzle right on our astronomical doorstep.

In fact, Vega itself could be the culprit. This book provides readers with a clear progress to theoretical and observational astrophysics. It is not surprising that astrophysics is continually growing because very sophisticated telescopes are being developed and they bring the universe closer and make it accessible.

Astrophysical Formulae: Space, Time, Matter And Cosmology (Astronomy And Astrophysics Library) Kenneth Lang Read Online With the appearance of online sites offering you all types of media files, including movies, music, and books, it has become significantly easier to get hold of everything you may need.

Unfortunately, it is not uncommon for these online resources to be very limited when it. Global Physics is a theory of everything about basic concepts of physics treated by both Quantum Mechanics and General Relativity.

Avoiding as much as possible the use of mathematics, and following the new Model of Global Mechanics, the author proposes some thoughtful ideas on current enigmas of Astrophysics, notably that the stars produce the expansion of the universe making. Peter A. Sturrock, emeritus director of the Center for Space Science and Astrophysics, Stanford University, author of The UFO Enigma and Plasma Physics "This impressive book should make academics think twice before simply dismissing or ignoring the subject and, indeed, should help legitimize this controversial field of inquiry."

Both books can start you out on astrophysics, in the sense of providing some background on astrophysical processes. Like those books you mentioned in the OP, they don't require mathematical sophistication or even much knowledge (which can be a boon or a drawback, depending on the reader), but do require lots of focus and a willingness to learn.

This astrophysical enigma is both huge and perplexing - thus, its unofficial, official namesake: The Great Attractor. What the Great Attractor is remains a mystery. It clearly reveals relativistic characteristics - those of warping time and space while bending light with its massive gravity.

The OnOff star is an astrophysical enigma, repeatedly burning brightly for 35 years, then shutting off and glowing dimly for years. There's a lone planet circling this unusual sun, and radio signals are detected from coming from it.

Astrophysics Is Easy. is a must for any amateur astronomer who desires to learn more about the science of astronomy ." (Jennifer Birriel, Sky and Telescope, May, ). in the field of astrophysical cosmology has stemmed from the discovery of new astronomical mysteries rather than from solving then existing mysteries.

There does not seem to be enough properly trained cosmologists and astrophysicists to slow the rising tide of unsolved cosmic mysteries, enigmas, anomalies, discrepancies, and conundrums. This proposal was countered by an alternative idea that local proton irradiation near our own infant Sun produced the 26 Al, removing the need for any external local-irradiation model has been debated at length, and the general consensus (not universal) is that it is unlikely for two reasons: (i) the difficulty of coproducing other known short-lived radionuclides (e.g., 41 Ca, 53 Mn.
