  • Astronomy of To-day

    Cecil Goodrich Julius Dolmage

    Astronomie The object of this book is to give an account of the science of Astronomy, as it is known at the present day, in a manner acceptable to the general reader. The Ptolemaic system persisted unshaken for about fourteen hundred years after the death of its author. Clearly men were flattered by the notion that their earth was the most important body in nature, that it stood still at the centre of the universe, and was the pivot upon which all things revolved.

  • Everything Solved: The Universe Explained

    Austin P. Torney

    Astronomie The Stuff Forever (or of nothing) that could no longer contain itself as a singularity, changing its form and 'banging' into a universe, obviously met a constraint that was being built up to in its wave form—since matter and spacetime came after the 'bang', as a low probability, but guaranteed (eventually), event, so we can go on to say about the only possible wave state of the Forever Something as the how and why of the 'bang', as well as the 'what' of the waves. Yes, it is a tall order, but we know that it could only do what it did, since all action is only from itself, there being no external directives possible for what is itself causeless. So, we expect to get 'lucky' in finding the only possible wave equation.
  • Lectures on Stellar Statistics

    Carl Vilhelm Ludvig Charlier

    Astronomie Our knowledge of the stars is based on their apparent attributes, obtained from the astronomical observations. The object of astronomy is to deduce here from the real or absolute attributes of the stars, which are their position in space, their movement, and their physical nature. The apparent attributes of the stars are studied by the aid of their radiation. The characteristics of this radiation may be described in different ways, according as the nature of the light is defined. (Undulatory theory, Emission theory) From the statistical point of view it will be convenient to consider the radiation as consisting of an emanation of small particles from the radiating body (the star). These particles are characterized by certain attributes, which may differ in degree from one particle to another. These attributes may be, for instance, the diameter and form of the particles, their mode of rotation, &c. By these attributes the optical and electrical properties of the radiation are to be
  • The Future of Astronomy

    Edward Charles Pickering

    Astronomie It is claimed by astronomers that their science is not only the oldest, but that it is the most highly developed of the sciences. Indeed it should be so, since no other science has ever received such support from royalty, from the state and from the private individual. However this may be, there is no doubt that in recent years astronomers have had granted to them greater opportunities for carrying on large pieces of work than have been entrusted to men in any other department of pure science. One might expect that the practical results of a science like physics would appeal to the man who has made a vast fortune through some of its applications. The telephone, the electric transmission of power, wireless telegraphy and the submarine cable are instances of immense financial returns derived from the most abstruse principles of physics. Yet there are scarcely any physical laboratories devoted to research, or endowed with independent funds for this object, except those supported by the g
  • The Moon

    Thomas Gwyn Elger

    Astronomie The Moon is the natural satellite of the Earth. It is thought that the Moon has formed about 4.5 billion years ago, soon after the formation of the Earth. The exact story of its formation still remains a mystery, although there are several hypotheses. The Moon is the second-brightest celestial object visible to the human’s eyes. But, the Moon itself is not bright, but a dark object, which receives its shine from the reflection of the Sun.  The interest in the Moon has its origin in the ancient times with important cultural influence on the calendars, art, mythology, etc.  The importance of the Moon to the Earth lies in the gravitational influence, which is responsible for the ocean tides and the minor lengthening of the day. One of the most interesting things about the Moon is its face, which looks like a real human face. The existence of this face has been and still is an inspiration for writing stories and poems. In this book you will find a detailed description of the M

  • Astronomical Theory of Climate Change

    N J

    Wetenschap en natuur A general consensus is that the precession of equinoxes is best explained by the lunisolar wobble theory. Although, this lunisolar model shows the basics of the Earth’s wobbling axes, it requires the presence of solar binary cycle to fully explain a net precession that results after one Earth orbit. This modified perspective of our solar system lays its claim on basis that the famous ‘unexplained part’ of the perihelion precession of Mercury (and all other planets) can be solved without the need to have a General Relativity explanation if the Sun is to curve on a binary path. Not just the axial precession and/or anomalous apsidal (orbital) precession; but other variables of Milankovitch cycles, such as orbital eccentricity, orbital inclination, can also fit well into binary model. In addition to the relativistic perihelion precession solution using binary theory, another way to confirm the existence of our binary solar system is using the analogy of lunar cycles.  Could the

  • Formation of the Solar System - A 21st Century Theory

    James L. Baker

    Astronomie This book is named A Twenty First Century Theory because it differs completely from all previous Solar System formation theories.  For the past 400 years, scientists and astronomers assumed the Sun came first and then the planets formed.  This assumption trapped them into a corner that was impossible to escape.  There was no way to build what is here. The Twenty First Century Theory starts by building the planets first. This allowed all of the previous mysteries to be solved such as: • How gases and dust formed into planets • Why the planets rotate and orbit counterclockwise • Why the planets are in their particular orbits • Why orbits are nearly circular and in one plane • How planets attained high spin rates • How pure iron happens to be in the center of the earth and other bodies  • Why all planets and moons with iron also have water • What was the source of our atmosphere • How the Sun was formed • Why the angular momentum of the Sun is not

  • NYPL Point: E.L. Trouvelot's Astronomical Drawings

    The New York Public Library, Astor, Lenox and Tilden Foundations & NYPL

    Astronomie This edition of Point focuses on the astronomical drawings of Étienne Léopold Trouvelot (1827–1895), which are housed in The New York Public Library's Rare Book Division. An artist as well as amateur entomologist and astronomer, Trouvelot produced thousands of scientific illustrations over his lifetime. Charles Scribner’s Sons published 15 of Trouvelot’s drawings of celestial bodies and phenomena in 1881 as The Trouvelot Astronomical Drawings Manual . Scribner was able to reproduce the vivid color and detail in each of Trouvelot’s illustrations using chromolithography, an inexpensive method of color printing. The Library has digitized images from that book and included them here, paired with modern-day photography of the same astronomical objects and phenomena captured by NASA and other space agencies. You will also find exclusive videos of NYPL librarians offering their unique perspective and knowledge on Trouvelot: his mind, his background, and his methods. Point Volu

  • Solar Particle Radiation Storms Forecasting and Analysis

    Olga E. Malandraki & Norma B. Crosby

    Astronomie Solar energetic particles (SEPs) emitted from the Sun are a major space weather hazard motivating the development of predictive capabilities. This book presents the results and findings of the HESPERIA ( H igh E nergy S olar P article E vents fo r ecast i ng and A nalysis) project of the EU HORIZON 2020 programme. It discusses the forecasting operational tools developed within the project, and presents progress to SEP research contributed by HESPERIA both from the observational as well as the SEP modelling perspective. Using multi-frequency observational data and simulations HESPERIA investigated the chain of processes from particle acceleration in the corona, particle transport in the magnetically complex corona and interplanetary space, to the detection near 1 AU. The book also elaborates on the unique software that has been constructed for inverting observations of relativistic SEPs to physical parameters that can be compared with spac e-borne measurements at lower energies.

    Astronomie Zeniitin vuoden 2015 kolmannessa numerossa tutustutan kesätaivaan tapahtumiin: upeisiin halomuotoihin ja myrskyihin. Zeniitissä pohditaan myös, milloin taivaan kuvauskausi päättyy ja tekisikö havaintoja kaukoputkella vai pärjäisikö ilman. Toni Veikkolainen luo  artikkelissaan  katseen Joutsenen tähdistön keskiosan sumuihin. Artikkelit: - Tarkkaile taivasta kesälläkin! - Halohuhtikuu 2015 - Tapahtumat taivaalla heinä–elokuussa 2015 - Taivaankappaleiden kohtaamisia ja peittymisiä - Milloin kuvauskausi päättyy? - Joutsenen keskiosan sumuja - Kelikalenteri maalis–huhtikuu 2015 - Marja Wallin 1977–2015 - Kaukoputkella vai ilman? - Tietoa Zeniitistä
  • Stable State Universe Theory

    Stephen Webb

    Astronomie The theory behind the stable state universe The first part of this theory is to believe in absolute zero, that is when there is no energy, no heat. Now in science we believe that we cannot reach absolute zero, because we have tried and found it impossible. Think of a thermometer it gets really close to absolute zero but never reaches it. There is a simple expiation for this, When you reach absolute zero there is no heat, no energy and therefore nothing to read, and of course the thermometer would not move because there is nothing to move it. So I believe that there is a state where no heat or energy and therefore no time or space. I have called this state the stable state universe. Before our universe was created the universe was in this stable state, there was no time or space, and everything was held in place by gravity. Something gave way and created energy, and our known universe was born. Not in a big bang but in many millions of small bangs, creating time and space as a dimensio

  • Fast Things in the Solar System

    William Haloupek

    Wetenschap en natuur Trying to get a sense of scale in the Solar System can be difficult, because the distances involved are outside the realm of ordinary experience. Planets and other bodies also move at much greater speeds than ordinary household objects. For example, 1 km/sec is pretty fast for a bullet, but slow compared to any of the planets. It would take you a very long time to get anywhere in the Solar System, moving at that speed. In order to get a sense of the speeds of things, let’s start with some familiar examples. The fastest human, in terms of running speed, is Usain Bolt, who set the record in the 100 meter run on August 16, 2009. The record time was 9.58 seconds, for an average speed of 10.44 m/sec. The actual top speed of 12.27 m/sec occurred at about the 65 meter mark. The world record for the standing high jump is 60 inches (1.524 m), set by Kadour Ziani. At the top of his leap, his center of mass was 1.524 meters higher than in standing position. To raise your center of mass that hi
  • La terre et la lune

    Pierre Henri Puiseux

    Astronomie La Physique céleste a pris naissance le jour où l'on a vu dans les astres autre chose que des points lumineux offerts en spectacle à nos regards, où ils sont apparus comme méritant une étude spéciale au point de vue de leur structure et de leur histoire. Cette étude ne pouvait être que rudimentaire et conjecturale avec les moyens d'observation dont les anciens disposaient. Une exception est à faire cependant. On a vu naître de bonne heure cette notion que la Terre est un astre, libre de se mouvoir dans l'espace, comme la Lune et le Soleil, que ses dimensions ne sont pas inaccessibles à toute mesure, qu'elles se réduiraient peut-être à bien peu de chose si nous pouvions quitter cette surface où nous sommes attachés et nous transporter à travers les espaces stellaires.
  • Time and Tide

    Robert Stawell Ball

    Astronomie This is a science book. There has been a spate of papers in the last several years analyzing sea level data (including tide gauge records) to look for acceleration, or its absence, or deceleration, or changes in acceleration … all in the vain hope that if one can show that sea level didn’t accelerate consistently throughout the 20th century then there’s no reason to believe it will accelerate in the 21st century (an idea which reveals complete ignorance of how qualified scientists estimate future sea level rise). Most such papers don’t say so explicitly, but the implication is dripping from their writings. And at least one of them did say so explicity — our old friend Dave Burton.
