Nuclear Structure By Rangel Kolessin
Paperback: $7.56
Ships in 3-5 business days
In 2007, the author discovered the real, natural structure of the atomic nucleus. This nuclear structure logically follows from the recently-discovered flat form of the nucleons and is in full... More > agreement with the Laws of Nature. In fact, the real nuclear structure is quite different form the existing nuclear models, which not only disagree with each other, but are also in contradiction to the Laws of Physics. This newly-presented structure offers a natural set up for all nuclear properties and an easily explanation of all nuclear puzzles and paradoxes.< Less

Just doing their jobs? Scientific responsibilty from nuclear physics to genetic engineering By Justin Denholm
Paperback: $18.95
Ships in 3-5 business days
The question of whether scientists shoud be considered responsible for the application of their research has been a controversial one, both within the scientific community and broader society. Taking... More > examples from atomic physics and genetic engineering, "Just doing their jobs?" considers scientific responsibility across a range of applications, in the midst of both positive and negative consequences of scientific research. "Just doing their jobs?" offers a challenge for scientists to assume responsibilty for subsequent applications of their research, and offers strategies for responding to this moral ownership in a way that respects their roles in both science and in society.< Less
The Men of Manhattan: Creators of the Nuclear Era By Jeffrey Strickland
eBook (PDF): $25.00

“The Men of Manhattan” is a short history of the origins and development of the American atomic bomb program during World War II, focusing on the men and woman who made it possible. ... More > Beginning with the scientific developments of the pre-war years, the book details the role of scientific exploration in conducting a secret, nationwide enterprise that took science from the laboratory and into combat with an entirely new type of weapon. Throughout the book, short biographies of the men, and a women—Lise Meitner, Leona Woods Marshall Libby, and Chien-Shiung Wu—are provided where most pertinent. Although nuclear weapons still pose a threat to peace throughout the world, splitting the atom was a watermark point in nuclear science and quantum physics. Harnessed responsibly, the enormous power of an atomic chain reaction can serve humanity for good, e.g., atomic energy. Nuclear medicine and x-ray technology are examples of the benefits brought about by these pioneers—the Men of Manhattan.< Less

Physics Help By Nicolae Sfetcu
eBook (ePub): $2.00

Physics (from Greek from φυσικός (phusikos): natural, from φύσις (fysis): Nature) is the science of Nature in the broadest sense.... More > Physicists study the behaviour and interactions of matter and radiation. Theories of physics are generally expressed as mathematical relations. Well-established theories are often referred to as physical laws or laws of physics; however, like all scientific theories, they are ultimately provisional. Physics is very closely related to the other natural sciences, particularly chemistry. The book is an overview of the major subfields and concepts in physics, including a brief outline of the history of physics and its subfields.< Less
