E = mc2
«E = mc2 est une espèce de signal, un panneau marquant l'entrée dans une nouvelle réalité, différente de celle que nous connaissons tous. Et cela a des implications profondes dans le monde de l'infiniment petit comme dans celui de l'infiniment grand...» E = mc2, la plus célèbre de toutes les équations... Elle a bouleversé à jamais la façon dont nous comprenons le monde, en libérant pour commencer la colossale énergie enfermée dans les noyaux des atomes. Mais que signifie vraiment cette formule? Pour le savoir, laissez Christophe Galfard vous raconter l'équation de tous les possibles. Plongez dans un univers d'énergie pure où tous vos repères seront définitivement abolis...

E=MC2
Iedereen weet dat E=mc² een belangrijke formule is, maar bijna niemand weet waarom. De vergelijking oogt zó eenvoudig dat je bijna zou denken dat ze ook gemakkelijk te begrijpen is. In een poging de 'formule van de twintigste eeuw' te verhelderen houdt David Bodanis geen wetenschappelijke verhandeling, maar vertelt hij een aanstekelijk verhaal waarin mensen van vlees en bloed de hoofdrol spelen. Hij maakt verhelderende uitstapjes naar de kunstgeschiedenis en de psychologie en gaat in op de grote maatschappelijke, politieke en militaire invloed die de formule heeft gehad, van de ontwikkeling van de atoombom tot de fabricage van televisietoestellen. David Bodanis doceert w...

E=mcQuadrat
<br/> In den Jahren 1905 bis 1915 veröffentlichte Albert Einstein seine fundamentalen Arbeiten über die Struktur der Raumzeit: Die spezielle und die allgemeine Relativitätstheorie. Beide sind inzwischen durch viele Experimente bestens bestätigt. Leider gilt ihr mathematischer Apparat bis heute als schwierig.<br/> <br/> Der an Relativitätstheorie Interessierte findet dazu reichlich Literatur; manche ist schön bebildert, aber viel zu einfach gehalten, andere dagegen mathematisch höchst abstrakt. Das muss nicht sein. Mathematik- und Physikkenntnisse, wie sie in der gymnasialen Oberstufe vermittelt werden, reichen als Grundlage für erste Studien der Allgemeinen Relativitätsth...

Earth
“It’s impossible to grasp the whole planet or integrate all the descriptions of it. But because we live here, we have to try. This is not just an artistic compulsion or an existential yearning, still less an academic exercise. It’s a survival issue. This is the only planet we have. We're stuck here, and we don’t own the place-it would be the height of arrogance to assume that we do. We're tenants here, not owners, but we're tenants with hope for a long-term tenancy. We want to extend our lease just as far as we can."-from <i>Earth: A Tenant’s Manual</i><br /><br /> In <i>Earth: A Tenant’s Manual</i>, the distinguished geologist Frank H. T. Rhodes, President Emeritus of Co...

Earth Fever
The human species is in a rather precarious situation. Poverty, the energy and financial crises, and above all the challenge of climate change mean that our civilization has come to a dangerous edge. Our safety nets-on both collective and individual levels-have been removed. Can we create a future that allows for a dignified society and a peaceful world? With a change of consciousness and a new spirituality, we may.<br /> Authors Judy McAllister, Erik van Praag, and Jan Paul van Soest bring to bear their diverse experience in the fields of sustainability, leadership, and entrepreneurialism on the challenge of building a radically different belief system about life such an...

Earth in Human Hands
For the first time in Earth's history, our planet is experiencing a confluence of rapidly accelerating changes prompted by one species: humans. Climate change is only the most visible of the modifications we've made--up until this point, inadvertently--to the planet. And our current behavior threatens not only our own future but that of countless other creatures. By comparing Earth's story to those of other planets, astrobiologist David Grinspoon shows what a strange and novel development it is for a species to evolve to build machines, and ultimately, global societies with world-shaping influence. Without minimizing the challenges of the next century, Grinspoon suggests ...

Earth Vs. Space
Space travel needs to wait until we gain enough information on how life operates in our solar system and beyond. The attractiveness of space travel was born in fantasy and matured into a science that gives us a false hope of conquering that which we do not understand; namely the bases of life on a planetary scale.<br/> This important monograph contains a comprehensive overview of how biologists view the way life functions on Earth, providing a solid basis on which to build an understanding of the theory of living complexity. The treatment of the topic is complete and clear, and is based on both historical and topical perspectives. The theoretical development is illustrat...

Earth: The Operators' Manual
The book—companion to a PBS series—that proves humans are causing global warming and offers a path to the future.<br /> Since the discovery of fire, humans have been energy users and always will be. And this is a good thing-our mastery of energy is what separates us from the rest of the animal kingdom and has allowed us to be the dominant species on the planet. However, this mastery comes with a price: we are changing our environment in a profoundly negative way by heating it up.<br /><br /> Using one engaging story after another, coupled with accessible scientific facts, world authority Richard B. Alley explores the fascinating history of energy use by humans over the ce...

Earth's Deep History
Earth has been witness to mammoths and dinosaurs, global ice ages, continents colliding or splitting apart, and comets and asteroids crashing catastrophically to the surface, as well as the birth of humans who are curious to understand it. But how was all this discovered? How was the evidence for it collected and interpreted? And what kinds of people have sought to reconstruct this past that no human witnessed or recorded? In this sweeping and accessible book, Martin J. S. Rudwick, the premier historian of the Earth sciences, tells the gripping human story of the gradual realization that the Earth’s history has not only been unimaginably long but also astonishingly eventf...

Eating in the Dark
Most Americans eat genetically modified food on a daily basis, but few of us are aware we’re eating something that has been altered. Meanwhile, consumers abroad refuse to buy our engineered crops; their groceries are labeled so that everyone knows if the contents have been modified. What’s going on here? Why does the U.S. government treat engineered foods so differently from the rest of the world?<br /><br /><b>Eating in the Dark</b> tells the story of how these new foods quietly entered America’s food supply. Kathleen Hart explores biotechnology’s real potential to enhance nutrition and cut farmers’ expenses. She also reveals the process by which American government age...
