By Helmut Eichlseder, Manfred Klell

„Wasserstoff in der Fahrzeugtechnik“ bietet einen allgemeinen Überblick über die verschiedenen Aspekte von Eigenschaften, Erzeugung, Speicherung und Anwendung von Wasserstoff. Schwerpunkte liegen auf der Thermodynamik der Speicherung von Wasserstoff sowie auf der Anwendung in der Fahrzeugtechnik und in der Energietechnik. Mit Bezug zu Forschungsvorhaben an der TU Graz und dem HyCentA wird der aktuelle Stand der Technik fundiert dargestellt. Als eigener Abschnitt wurde in dieser Auflage die Brennstoffzelle zur Stromerzeugung für Elektroantriebe ergänzt. Ein Verfahren zur Wasserstoffproduktion durch Pyrolyse aus Glycerin wurde neu aufgenommen. Ergänzt wurden Abschnitte über aktuelle Anwendungen, über Verbrennungsmotoren für Gemische aus Wasserstoff und Methan, über Werkstoffe sowie Fragen von Wirkungsgrad und CO2-Emissionen.

Life in the Universe, 3rd Edition by Jeffrey O. Bennett, Seth Shostak

By Jeffrey O. Bennett, Seth Shostak

Existence within the Universe takes non-science majors on a trip throughout the sun procedure and past, utilizing a rigorous but obtainable advent to astronomy, biology, and geology to give an explanation for traditional phenomena and to discover profound clinical questions on astrobiology. The 3rd variation has been completely revised to incorporate up-to-date medical discoveries, new Cosmic Context two-page spreads, and an up-to-date significant other site.   Designed for astrobiology classes but additionally appropriate for introductory astronomy classes, lifestyles within the Universe captures your mind's eye via exploring basic pan-scientific questions: what's existence? How did existence commence in the world? What are the main severe kinds of existence at present recognized? Is it moderate to visualize existence past Earth?   The textual content motivates you to improve simple reasoning abilities and an figuring out of the method of technology via skillful writing and a wealth of pedagogical good points, similar to studying pursuits that hold you centered on key strategies. Sidebars supply not obligatory mathematical fabric for classes that satisfy quantitative requisites.

Celestial Sleuth: Using Astronomy to Solve Mysteries in Art, by Donald W. Olson

By Donald W. Olson

For a normal viewers attracted to fixing mysteries in artwork, background, and literature utilizing the tools of technological know-how, 'forensic astronomy' is an exciting new box of exploration. Astronomical calculations are the root of the experiences, that have the benefit of bringing to readers either evocative pictures and a greater figuring out of the skies.

Weather proof, volcano experiences, topography, tides, ancient letters and diaries, well-known work, army documents, and the pleasant guidance of specialists in comparable fields upload type, intensity, and curiosity to the paintings. the selected themes are chosen for his or her broad public attractiveness and intrigue, concerning artists akin to Vincent van Gogh, Claude Monet, Edvard Munch, and Ansel Adams; ancient occasions comparable to the conflict of Marathon, the dying of Julius Caesar, the yankee Revolution, and international struggle II; and literary authors reminiscent of Chaucer, Shakespeare, Joyce, and Mary Shelley. This publication units out to respond to those mysteries indicated with the capability and services of astronomy, starting the door to a richer adventure of human tradition and its courting with nature.

Each topic is thoroughly analyzed. to illustrate utilizing the learn of sky work through Vincent van Gogh, the analytical strategy would come with:
- computing device calculations of ancient skies above France within the nineteenth century
- discovering and quoting the clues present in translations of unique letters by means of Van Gogh
- making website visits to France to figure out the proper destinations whilst Van Gogh organize his easel and what celestial gadgets are depicted.

For every one ancient occasion encouraged by way of astronomy, there will be a special form of secret to be solved. to illustrate:
- How can the section of the Moon and time of moonrise support to provide an explanation for a turning aspect of the yank Civil conflict - the deadly wounding of Stonewall Jackson at Chancellorsville in 1863?

For each one literary connection with astronomy, it was firm which celestial gadgets have been being defined and making an issue that the writer is describing an exact occasion. for instance, what used to be the date of the moonlit scene while Mary Shelley first had the assumption for her novel “Frankenstein?”

These and extra enjoyable riddles will enchant and pleasure the fan of artwork and astronomy.

The Quarantine and Certification of Martian Samples by National Research Council, Division on Engineering and

By National Research Council, Division on Engineering and Physical Sciences, Space Studies Board, Committee on Planetary and Lunar Exploration

One of the highest-priority actions within the planetary sciences pointed out in released studies of the gap experiences Board's Committee on Planetary and Lunar Exploration (COMPLEX) and in experiences of alternative advisory teams is the gathering and go back of extraterrestrial samples to Earth for learn in terrestrial laboratories. in keeping with innovations made in such stories, NASA has initiated a full of life application that would, in the subsequent decade, acquire samples from a number of sun process environments. specifically the Mars Exploration software is anticipated to release spacecraft which are designed to assemble samples of martian soil, rocks, and surroundings and go back them to Earth, might be as early as 2015.

International treaty duties mandate that NASA behavior this type of application in a fashion that avoids the cross-contamination of either Earth and Mars. the gap stories Board's 1997 record Mars pattern go back: concerns and proposals tested a number of the planetary-protection concerns in regards to the again infection of Earth and concluded that, even though the chance that martian samples will include harmful biota is small, it's not zero.1 Steps has to be taken to guard Earth opposed to the distant danger of illness via lifestyles types that can have advanced on Mars. equally, the samples, accrued at nice cost, has to be protected from illness by way of terrestrial biota and different subject. in all likelihood, assembly those necessities will entail commencing the sample-return box in a suitable facility on Earth-presumably a BSL-4 laboratory-where trying out, biosafety certification, and quarantine of the samples should be conducted prior to aliquots are published to the medical neighborhood for examine in latest laboratory amenities. the character of the necessary quarantine facility, and the selections required for disposition of samples when they are in it, have been considered as problems with adequate value and complexity to warrant a learn via the Committee on Planetary and Lunar Exploration (COMPLEX) in isolation from different issues. (Previous reports were a lot broader, together with additionally attention of the project that collects samples on Mars and brings them to Earth, atmospheric access, pattern restoration, and shipping to the quarantine facility.) The cost to advanced acknowledged that the imperative query to be addressed during this research is the subsequent: What are the factors that has to be happy sooner than martian samples should be published from a quarantine facility?

Archaeoastronomy in the Old World by D. C. Heggie

By D. C. Heggie

This quantity summarises the lawsuits of a convention which happened on the college of Oxford in September 1981. Held below the auspices of the foreign Astronomical Union and the overseas Union for the background and Philosophy of technological know-how, the assembly reviewed study in previous international Archaeoastronomy. The writer acquired the ultimate typescript for creation in March 1982. The papers during this publication are taken with laying off gentle on a debatable element of eu prehistory, in particular that of north-west Europe: was once astronomy practised right here within the past due Neolithic and bronze a while, and if this is the case, what was once its function? those questions are of seen curiosity to prehistorians, yet clean curiosity in them has been influenced mostly by way of these whose specialist history is within the natural and technologies, whereas they elevate technical matters that have aroused the curiosity of statisticians and astronomers.
