''FASCINATING . . . MEMORABLE . . . REVEALING . . . PERHAPS THE BEST OF CARL SAGAN''S BOOKS.'' --The Washington Post Book World (front page review)
In Cosmos, the late astronomer Carl Sagan cast his gaze over the magnificent mystery of the Universe and made it accessible to millions of people around the world. Now in this stunning sequel, Carl Sagan completes his revolutionary journey through space and time.
Future generations will look back on our epoch as the time when the human race
The Big Picture: On the Origins of Life, Meaning, and the Universe Itself
4.0 out of 5 stars with 226 reviews
Does human purpose and meaning fit into a scientific worldview?
Already internationally acclaimed for his elegant, lucid writing on the most challenging notions in modern physics, Sean Carroll is emerging as one of the greatest humanist thinkers of his generation as he brings his extraordinary intellect to bear not only on the Higgs boson and extra dimensions but now also on our deepest personal questions. Where are we? Who are we? Are our emotions, our beliefs, and our hopes and dreams
Truth, Lies, and O-Rings: Inside the Space Shuttle Challenger Disaster
4.1 out of 5 stars with 117 reviews
On a cold January morning in 1986, NASA launched the Space Shuttle Challenger, despite warnings against doing so by many individuals including Allan McDonald. The fiery destruction of Challenger on live television moments after launch remains an indelible image in the nation's collective memory.
In Truth, Lies, and O-Rings, McDonald, a skilled engineer and executive, relives the tragedy from where he stood at Launch Control Center. As he fought to draw attention to the real reasons behind the

Lake Wobegon U.S.A. is the eagerly anticipated successor to News From Lake Wobegon (one of the bestselling spoken-word audio ever) and More News From Lake Wobegon. This collection contains 17 touching, exquisitely funny monologues from Garrison Keillor recorded during American Radio Company broadcasts from tour stops all over the country. The tales, says Keillor, are about ''the luxury of rhubarb pie, the perils of prophecy, Florian and Myrtle's thrifty vacation, the vapor lights of Our Lady of
High-Pressure Shock Compression of Solids II: Dynamic Fracture and Fragmentation (Shock Wave and High Pressure Phenomena)

4.6 out of 5 stars with 25 reviews
This volume concerns the fracture and fragmentation of solid materials that occurs when they are subjected to extremes of stress applied at the highest possible rates. The plan for the volume is to address experimental, theoretical, and com putational aspects of high-rate dynamic fracture and fragmentation, with emphasis on recent work. We begin with several chapters in which the emphasis falls on experimental methods and observations. These chapters address both macroscopic responses and the
Flow-Induced Vibrations, Second Edition: Classifications and Lessons from Practical Experiences
ean: 9780080983479, isbn: 0080983472,
4.7 out of 5 stars with 28 reviews
In many plants, vibration and noise problems occur due to fluid flow, which can greatly disrupt smooth plant operations. These flow-related phenomena are called flow-induced vibration. This book explains how and why such vibrations happen and provides hints and tips on how to avoid them in future plant design. The world-leading author team doesn’t assume prior knowledge of mathematical methods and provides the reader with information on the basics of modeling. The book includes several

Atmospheric acoustics is one of the most ancient and most important branches in acoustics, but a very abnormal and irrational fact is: there is no monograph or book devoted to such an important and peculiar discipline in the worldwide literature till now. This book is the only monograph in the very field bringing together the results of recent research.

This book is a companion text to Active Control of Sound by P.A. Nelson and S.J. Elliott, also published by Academic Press. It summarizes the principles underlying active vibration control and its practical applications by combining material from vibrations, mechanics, signal processing, acoustics, and control theory. The emphasis of the book is on the active control of waves in structures, the active isolation of vibrations, the use of distributed strain actuators and sensors, and the active

The book is devoted to the very basis of acoustics and vibro-acoustics. The physics of the phenomena, the analytical methods and the modern numerical techniques are presented in a concise form. Many examples illustrate the fundamental problems and predictions (analytic or numerical) and are often compared to experiments. Some emphasis is put on the mathematical tools required by rigorous theory and reliable prediction methods.A series of practical problems, which reflect the content of each

4.1 out of 5 stars with 32 reviews
This workshop continues an annual series held since 1990 covering the fundamental understanding of ferroelectrics and piezoelectrics using first-principles theory and experiments. Of particular interest this year are the new high strain single crystal piezoelectrics, superlattices, and complex solid solutions. Also this year is growing interest in understanding dynamical properties of relaxors, using theory and experiment, particularly inelastic neutron scattering.
