Book Description
Outstanding imagery, stunningly presented. Perceptive text from award-winning science writer James Trefil. A foreword by David H. Levy, discoverer of 21 comets. Put them all together and you get Other Worlds: Images of the Cosmos from Earth and Space. Bonnie Gordon, editor of Astronomy magazine, calls this "a gorgeously produced book about our solar system, the larger universe, and our place in both....Few writers give you as much insight as Trefil. Few will make you feel you understand the story of planetary evolution or how scientists discovered the distances to neighboring stars." Paul H. Knappenberger, president of Chicago's Adler Planetarium and Astronomy Museum, agrees, calling Trefil "a superb guide" with "a splendid overview of astronomy." Join in this armchair journey through the universe, which sparkles with the best images available from all sources, including ground-based observatories, landers, flybys, and other missions, as well as the Hubble Space Telescope.

Editorial Reviews
The first planet around a sunlike star was finally detected in 1995, after decades of false alarms. It was inevitable that within a couple of years a flood of books on extrasolar planets would gush forth. Michael Lemonick is the senior science writer at Time magazine, and his account is the most readable and vivid yet. He has a fluid, anecdotal style, with a good ear for the sort of simile that really speaks to the average reader, as when he describes hooking up a radio telescope being like "setting up a new computer yourself. Sometimes it just plain doesn't work, and you can't for the life of you figure out why." Lemonick structures Other Worlds around Geoff Marcy and Paul Butler, whose Extrasolar Planet Search Project at the University of California, San Francisco, is the most successful program so far, with six planet discoveries to its credit by the end of 1998. Lemonick's other touchstone is the Drake Equation, which he hyperbolically calls "the second most important equation of the century." If we could fit in values for the seven terms in this equation, we could say something sensible about the number of civilizations in the galaxy. So far, the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence (SETI) has not come up with any actual data, but, as one researcher says, it's "the world's biggest carrot," and worth enduring a considerable number of sticks.

You've never seen the Eagle or Helix nebulae like this before and some of the pictures within our own solar system give you a good idea of what it must be like if you're out therescary. Away from Earth and in a desolate zone millions of miles away. Galaxies, star clusters, etc.. are so much more defined than the photographs of these wonders that come from Earth-based observatories. No atmospheric turbulence and also great photos from the greatest scope man has invented. Galileo would marvel at the photographs of Jupiter and its Moons, which he first discovered long ago. He sure didn't see them like this.

Foundations of Astronomy
6 th edition Plus The Solar System and Stars and Galaxies
The 6th edition of Foundations of Astronomy was published in July 2000. This dramatic revision has refocused Mike Seeds teaching philosophy to craft a book that strives to show students what they are and how we know What we are means our place in the cosmos.
Mike explains that he wants his own students to do more than just memorize a list of facts for the final exam. He wants them to understand as astronomers do what humanity is. "We live on the surface of a rocky world orbiting a humdrum star in a universe of evolving galaxies. The students need to understand what that means to them and to their lives." The 6th edition of Foundations of Astronomy focuses on helping students understand their place in the universe their physical place and their temporal place in an evolving universe that had a beginning. How we know means how science works.

Sri Lanka: Gateway to Other Worlds?
Scientists re-examine legends of Serendip
O ngoing space research shares much in common with recent investigations studying the basis for Lanka’s ancient reputation as a gateway between worlds. The implications, researchers say, could be enormous. This article was written to commemorate Sri Lanka’s contribution to worldwide functions marking 1992 as the International Space Year. Patrick Harrigan , M.A., studied astronomy at the University of Michigan before entering the field of South Asia studies. He now serves as acting editor of the Kataragama Research Publications Project. Ptolemy's map of Taprobane. "Not only is the universe more complex than we ever thought, it is far more mysterious and magical than we ever believed." - American physicist Dr. Fred Alan Wolf I nstantaneous transport between worlds , once the stuff of science fiction and long a favorite theme of lore and legend would ever dare to imagine, according to a growing consensus of researchers in the rapidly-emerging field of parallel universe theory. Now scientific interest appears to be focusing upon Sri Lanka’s living tradition of cosmography or sacred geography the understanding of which could lead to discoveries that are literally out of this world. Theoretical physicists, backed by recent findings in the field of radio astronomy, are suggesting that the visible universe as we see it may in fact consist of multiple overlapping universes that are dependently inter-related in some yet unknown way. They point, for instance, to recent calculations indicating that nine-tenths of the universe’s postulated mass may consist of 'dark matter' that is yet undetected and unaccounted for a disturbing fact to astrophysicists that is neatly explainable in terms of parallel universe theory.
