BOOK EXCERPT:

Noah Grow is a bird-watcher. If you're picturing some kid in a big floppy hat, peering up into trees through giant binoculars . . . well, good job. That's exactly what he does. Right now, Noah is on a quest to find a wood duck. According to his calculations, aka the Drake Equation, the odds are good-really good-for spotting one. That's why he gets off the bus at the wrong stop. And that's how he ends up running down a hill, crashing into a fence, and landing right next to a strange, glittery disk. Noah and his best friends, Jason and Jenny, soon discover that the mysterious disk is, well, mysterious. It gives Noah peculiar powers. As things go from odd to outrageous, Noah is swept up in a storm of intergalactic intrigue and middle-school mayhem. There's much more at stake than Noah realizes. Bart King delivers a hilarious sci-fi adventure with just the right mix of heart and humor that will have readers looking out for birds-and strange alien objects.

Es gibt keine Handys, und weder TV- noch Radiosendungen werden ausgestrahlt: Die National Radio Quiet Zone im US-Bundesstaat West Virginia wurde in den 50er Jahren von Wissenschaftlern eingegrenzt; seither forschen sie dort nach Spuren außerirdischen Lebens. Ein Ort, an dem sich Menschen begegnen, die unterschiedlicher nicht sein könnten. Ein Ort, an dem Wissenschaftler auf Siedler und Bärenjäger treffen. Und an den sich in den vergangenen Jahren vermehrt Leute flüchten, die elektromagnetische Felder als Krankmacher fürchten. Im Jahr 2015 verbrachten die Fotografen Paul Kranzler (Österreich) und Andrew Phelps (Österreich/USA) viele Wochen in der Umgebung der kleinen Stadt Green Bank und des Green Bank Observatory, um diese einzigartige Gemeinschaft von Forschern, Elektrosensiblen und einheimischen Familien zu dokumentieren. Das daraus entstandene Buch THE DRAKE EQUATION zeigt eine naturbelassene Landschaft, durchsetzt von grotesk anmutenden, riesigen Teleskopen. Und es zeigt Menschen, in deren Körpern und Haltungen sich das Leben im Green Bank?Pocahontas± Valley spiegelt.?Ich denke, dass es bei der fotografischen Arbeit, die Sie jetzt in Ihren Händen halten, um viele Dinge geht, um Zeit und Wissenschaft und Technik und Natur, für mich jedoch ist es im Wesentlichen eine Arbeit über Amerika±, schreibt der Journalist Alard von Kittlitz in seinem begleitenden Text.

BOOK EXCERPT:

This book introduces the Statistical Drake Equation where, from a simple product of seven positive numbers, the Drake Equation is turned into the product of seven positive random variables. The mathematical consequences of this transformation are demonstrated and it is proven that the new random variable N for the number of communicating civilizations in the Galaxy must follow the lognormal probability distribution when the number of factors in the Drake equation is allowed to increase at will. Mathematical SETI also studies the proposed FOCAL (Fast Outgoing Cyclopean Astronomical Lens) space mission to the nearest Sun Focal Sphere at 550 AU and describes its consequences for future interstellar precursor missions and truly interstellar missions. In addition the author shows how SETI signal processing may be dramatically improved by use of the Karhunen-Loève Transform (KLT) rather than Fast Fourier Transform (FFT). Finally, he describes the efforts made to persuade the United Nations to make the central part of the Moon Far Side a UN-protected zone, in order to preserve the unique radio-noise-free environment for future scientific use.

BOOK EXCERPT:

Canadian MIT astrophysicist Sara Seager interweaves the story of her search for meaning and solace after losing her first husband to cancer, her unflagging search for an Earth-like exoplanet and her unexpected discovery of new love. Sara Seager has made it her life's work to peer into the spaces around stars--looking for exoplanets outside our solar system, hoping to find the one-in-a-billion world enough like ours to sustain life. But with the unexpected death of her husband, her life became an empty, lightless space. Suddenly, she was the single mother of two young boys, a widow at forty, clinging to three crumpled pages of instructions her husband had written for things like grocery shopping--things he had done while she did pioneering work as a planetary scientist at MIT. She became painfully conscious of her Asperger's, which before losing her husband had felt more like background noise. She felt, for the first time, alone in the universe. In this probing, invigoratingly honest memoir, Seager tells the story of how, as she stumblingly navigated the world of grief, she also kept looking for other worlds. She continues to develop groundbreaking projects, such as the Starshade, a sunflower-shaped instrument that, when launched into space, unfurls itself so as to block planet-obscuring starlight, and she takes solace in the alien beauty of exoplanets. At the same time, she discovers what feels every bit as wondrous: other people, reaching out across the space of her grief. Among them are the Widows of Concord, a group of women offering consolation and advice, and her beloved sons, Max and Alex. Most unexpected of all, there is another kind of one-in-a-billion match with an amateur astronomer. Equally attuned to the wonders of deep space and human connection, The Smallest Lights in the Universe is its own light in the dark.
