Set roughly 500 years in Earth’s future, Mystery and Deceit takes place on Mars, now a terraformed and settled planet. James Hall, a reporter for the New Chicago Times, encounters Eric Pohlman... More > while doing field research for a human interest article and manages to earn a set of interviews in Eric’s home in Ashwaubenon, Olympus Mons Province, Mars.

« Les étoiles filantes ou météores » sont des morceaux de matière, chauffés à l'incandescence par le frottement de l'air, tombant... More > à travers l'atmosphère de la Terre. Les trainées lumi­neuses, dénommées météores, ou météoroïdes, que gé­nèrent les corps extraterrestres, lors de leur pénétration dans l'at­mosphère, peuvent produire, s'il ne se sont pas entièrement consumés, des météorites. L'étude, en laboratoire, permet de penser que la plupart des météorites sont des fragments issus de la « Ceinture d'asté­roïdes », située entre les orbites de Mars et de Ju­piter. Quelques fois, ces astéroïdes sortant de leur orbite, sont éjectés vers les confins de l'Univers, vers le Soleil, ou vers les planètes internes du Système Solaire.< Less

Following a life-changing personal event for Tom Swift, the world is taken by surprise when the report comes through that a planet in our own solar system has suddenly disappeared from its orbit.... More > Traditional means of scanning the sky can’t locate it, so the Government practically demands that Tom Swift investigate. An unmanned probe designed to look for any mass out there fails to find the wayward planet. And, when a second, more capable probe is suddenly grabbed and flung out of its path, Tom knows that he must go see what is out there. But another surprise is in store when something even larger than the missing planet appears and starts hurtling in toward a possible impact with the Earth. What is suddenly hurtling on a collision course and can Tom find a way to deflect it before even a near miss might mean massive devastation on our planet?< Less
Hotwiring the Transient Universe By Sarah Emery Bunn, Roy Williams, Rob Seaman
Paperback: $5.77
Ships in 3-5 business days
Orbiting satellites & giant astronomical surveys are monitoring much of the sky regularly, detecting vast numbers of variable astronomical objects, some with exciting and energetic astrophysics... More > such as blazar eruptions, cataclysmic variables & supernovae; some much closer, perhaps discovery of a potentially Earth-impacting asteroid. A VOEvent is a message about an astronomical event: a change in brightness or position in the sky. The message can be sent to other observers for follow-up observations, or it can be added to other data about the event to aid understanding. Many existing & future surveys are using VOEvent for rapid event noti¬fications, including CRTS, GCN (Fermi and SWIFT), LIGO, LOFAR, LSST, MOA, OGLE, PTF & SVOM. This book explores transient surveys & classification, what VOEvents mean & how to build them, the rich structure of the VOEvent 2.0 standard, working with the Virtual Observatory infrastructure, & ideas on an interoperable transport network. http://hotwireduniverse.org< Less
