During a clear night of 1839, in late fall, my father was returning back home, after having regulated the brick-kiln fires; I had gotten to be with him during that night walk. It was very late, the darkness total, and I was walking sleepy, stumbling over my steps. Then he took me up in his arms and, to keep me awake, began to tell me the constellations. Thus, as a 4-year-old child, I learned to recognize the Pleiades, the Little Dipper, the Big Dipper and the Milky Way, what he called the Way of St James. Just then, in a flash, a shooting star broke away; then another; then another. To my question about what they were, he replied that these things were known only by the Lord. I kept silent, and a confused feeling of huge and wonderful things took possession of me.
Giovanni Virginio Schiaparelli

Astronomy is a very old science. Long ago the human race learned to recognize the stars and created the imaginary shapes of the constellations which they used for orientation. Our ancestors regulated their lives by seasons and discovered the cycle of the sky's many phenomena. And all this happened well before the invention of writing.
To fully comprehend what Earth is, we can only try to understand what it is as compared to other worlds of the Universe: the ground beneath our feet, then, becomes the surface of an enormous sphere. This sphere revolves on itself, alternating day with night, and, over the course of a year, it also rotates around the Sun. The inclination of its axis has produced the phenomenon of the seasons. And what about stars?

Life on Other Worlds: The 20th Century Extraterrestrial Life Debate
(1998) Steven J. Dick, Cambridge University Press, £12.95, pbk, pp xiii + 290, ISBN 521 79912 This title only came out in paperback in 2001 and, as the author is US based, it is only now (2002) slowly percolating beyond academia and, indeed, the US so you may well have missed this fairly nifty review of the last century's review of the extra-terrestrial debate. Importantly the book's sub-title - The 20th Century Extraterrestrial Life Debate - is as fundamental as the title Life on Other worlds . This book is not Fortunately for us, Steven Dick does take a run up to the 20th century and looks at some pre-20th perspectives which provides the book with some added value. The ground covered includes the: philosophical historical perspectives as to the concept of aliens; life in the solar system from Lowell to possible Martian fossils; beyond the solar system; extraterrestrials in the art; UFOs; the origin of life; SETI; and the implications of extraterrestrials existing. Doubly fortunately for Concat regulars this little lot includes SF perspectives which is fair game given how much science fiction has done to popularise the concept of alien life. The review of UFO discussion is sober, indeed for my taste a little sympathetic: after all we all know that some jumped onto the UFO bandwagon simply to get attention and, worse, others to make a buck out of the gullible and Dick skips those key bits.

Studying the Universe with
Space Observatories:

Recent NASA missions have rapidly increased our ability to explore and understand the structure, dynamics and evolution of our universe. Mysteries from the inner workings of stars to the formation of galaxies and the beginnings of the universe itself are being unraveled with each new observation. At the same time, growth of the internet has allowed for rapid and direct dissemination of fundamental discoveries and scientific results to the public, sometimes even as they occur, and often without adequate scientific context or commentary. This course will provide the conceptual and scientific background necessary for understanding and interpreting the results of missions related to galactic and extragalactic space science. There has never been a more exciting time to become knowledgeable and involved in NASA's plan for the exploration of deep space. Instructor
David M Caditz, PhD is a Visiting Assistant Professor of Physics at Montana State University. Dr. Caditz has performed research in elementary particle physics at Massachusetts Institute of Technology and has held research positions at the Center for Space Science and Astrophysics at Stanford University. At MSU, Dr. Caditz has taught courses in graduate and undergraduate physics and has performed research in various aspects of astronomical data analysis and high energy extragalactic astrophysics.

DO NEUTRINOS PUSH PULSARS AROUND? Many pulsars possess a proper motion across the sky, implying that the pulsars get kicked somehow in the act of being born in the violent explosion of a supernova. A new theory holds that these birth velocities might be caused by a non-symmetric shell of neutrinos rushing away from the supernova collapse. (A large fraction of the energy released in a supernova is vested in neutrinos.) According to Gino Segre of the Univ. of Pennsylvania (, an asymmetry in the "neutrinosphere," the surface at which the neutrinos last scattered before emerging from the star, could be caused by neutrino oscillations (the transformation, say, of tau neutrinos into electron neutrinos) under the bias of the star's magnetic field. A 1% anisotropy in the neutrino distribution could result in a "kick velocity" consistent with the measured average pulsar velocity of 450 km/sec.
