Vom Urknall zum Durchknall : Die absurde Jagd nach der Weltformel

Die Physik ist bei der Jagd nach der Weltformel in eine Sackgasse geraten. Der Autor zeichnet nach, wie die theoretische Physik vom Weg abkam und nun mit immer größeren Spekulationsblasen in die Esoterik abdriftet. Witzig-bissig und mit unterhaltsamen Anekdoten, aber auch fundiert bis ins element nimmt er die heutige Physik aufs Korn und erinnert an die unbeantworteten Fragen, die die wirklichen Größen der Physik bewegt haben.

The Practical Astronomer’s Deep-sky Companion

As an beginner astronomer with years of expertise, I wonder on the pleasure skilled by way of a newbie who effectively hunts down their first deep-space item in a telescope. it doesn't matter what age or ability point, "nailing" a formerly unobserved item during the eye­ piece, either immediately defines their love of the pastime and provides a sense of medical accomplishment irrespective of how popular to others the article will be.

The Observer's Guide to Planetary Motion: Explaining the Cycles of the Night Sky

To the bare eye, the main glaring defining function of the planets is their movement around the evening sky. It used to be this movement that allowed old civilizations to unmarried them out as diverse from mounted stars. “The Observer’s advisor to Planetary movement” takes each one planet and its moons (if it has them) in flip and describes how the geometry of the sunlight approach provides upward push to its saw motions.

The solid line indicates main sequence stars (MS), the dotted line the sub giant branch (SGB), the short dashed line red giant branch (RGB), the long-dashed line the horizontal branch (HB), and the dot-dashed line the asymptotic giant branch (AGB). Reproduced with the permission of John Wiley & Sons Ltd. as the ground level itself, and thus radiative transitions are forbidden by the parity selection rule [82]. Line emission can also be generated within planetary nebulae, isolated symmetric objects formed by the gas expelled by an old star previous to its transformation into a white dwarf.

1, where the temperature of dust grains of different sizes is plotted as a function of the mean time between absorption of successive photons from the general interstellar radiation field. Very small grains and PAHs are thus not in thermal equilibrium with the interstellar radiation field and cannot be represented with a simple modified black body. 2 Emission Lines The infrared spectral domain of extragalactic sources is characterized by the presence of several atomic and molecular emission lines that are fundamental to the study of the physics of the ISM and the process of star formation.

The newly formed stars inject metals and energy via UV radiation into the ISM, determining its physical conditions. The heating and cooling of the gas is predominantly regulated in neutral regions of the 45 46 4 The Infrared ISM, generally called photodissociation regions (PDR), from which comes most of the CO emission of galaxies [112]. The heating and cooling of the gaseous phase of the ISM occurs via kinetic energy transfer from and to atoms, molecules, and ions of the interstellar gas. As extensively described in [75], the principal heating process starts with the removal of an electron from an atom or a dust grain of the ISM.
