많은 과학책들이 과학을 쉽고 재미있게 이야기한다고 말한다. 과학이 쉽고 재미있다고? 아니, 과학은 어렵다. 어떻게 쉬울 수 있겠는가. 과학 전문 출판사에서 15년 동안 과학책 만드는 일을 해 온 이 책의 저자 이은영은 과학을 공부한 지 꽤 많은 세월이 흘렀음에도 아직도 과학이 어렵다고 말한다. 거창한 이론이 아니더라도 지구와 달이 우주에서 부딪치지 않고 떠있는 것조차 잘 이해하지 못하고 있다고 고백한다. 하지만 그녀는 덧붙인다. 조금만 유심히 살펴보면, 지금껏 과학이 밝혀낸 사실들은 많은 흥미로운 이야깃거리를 담고 있다고. 《사이언스 라디오》는 바로 거기에서 출발했다. 이 책은 출근길 버스 안에서 흘러나오는 라디오처럼, 커피 한 잔과 함께 여유 있게 즐기는 에세이처럼 일상의 언어로 친근하고 다정하게 과학 이야기를 들려준다. 글과 어우러진 다양한 그림과 사진을 새로운 시선으로 바라보는 것은 또 다른 즐거움이다. 과학 이론이나 개념은 잠시 잊고, 과학 속 이야기를 즐겨 보자. 하루 5분, 당신의 일상에 과학 감수성을 불어넣는 시간! ‘사이언스 라디오’에 주파수를 맞춰 보는 것은 어떨까.

A thorough introduction to the computation of celestial mechanics, covering everything from astronomical and computational theory to the construction of rapid and accurate applications programs. The book supplies the necessary knowledge and software solutions for determining and predicting positions of the Sun, Moon, planets, minor planets and comets, solar eclipses, stellar occultations by the Moon, phases of the Moon and much more. This completely revised edition takes advantage of C++, and individual applications may be efficiently realized through the use of a powerful module library. The accompanying CD-ROM contains the complete, fully documented and commented source codes as well as executable programs for Windows 98/2000/XP and LINUX.

G. Beutler's Methods of Celestial Mechanics is a coherent textbook for students as well as an excellent reference for practitioners. The first volume gives a thorough treatment of celestial mechanics and presents all the necessary mathematical details that a professional would need. The reader will appreciate the well-written chapters on numerical solution techniques for ordinary differential equations, as well as that on orbit determination. In the second volume applications to the rotation of earth and moon, to artificial earth satellites and to the planetary system are presented. The author addresses all aspects that are of importance in high-tech applications, such as the detailed gravitational fields of all planets and the earth, the oblateness of the earth, the radiation pressure and the atmospheric drag. The concluding part of this monumental treatise explains and details state-of-the-art professional and thoroughly-tested software for celestial mechanics.

The beauty and awe generated by the celestial void captures our imagination and delights our aesthetic sense. Antiquarian map societies are prospering, and celestial maps are now viewed as a specialty of map collecting. This book traces the history of celestial cartography and relates this history to the changing ideas of man’s place in the universe and to advances in map-making. Photographs from actual antiquarian celestial atlases and prints, many previously unpublished, enrich the text. The book describes the development and relationships between different sky maps and atlases as well as demonstrating contemporary cosmological ideas, constellation representations, and cartographic advances.

A revelatory look at how our environment unconsciously yet dramatically shapes the judgments and decisions we make every day Most of us go through life believing that we are in control of the choices we make—that we think and behave almost independently from the world around us. But as Drunk Tank Pink illustrates, the truth is our environment shapes our thoughts and actions in myriad ways without our permission or even our knowledge. Armed with surprising data and endlessly fascinating examples, Adam Alter addresses the subtle but substantial ways in which outside forces influence us—such as color’s influence on mood, our bias in favor of names with which we identify, and how sunny days can induce optimism as well as aggression. Drunk Tank Pink proves that the truth behind our feelings and actions goes much deeper than the choices we take for granted every day. Adam Alter's forthcoming book, Irresistible, will be published by Penguin Press in March 2017.
