Haben Schwarze Löcher keine Haare?
Das Geheimnis der Schwarzen Löcher <br /><br /> Sie sind eines der größten Rätsel im Universum: Schwarze Löcher, kollabierte Sterne, deren Anziehungskraft so groß ist, dass sie alles in sich hineinziehen, was in ihren Einflussbereich gelangt. Stephen Hawking hat sich ein Leben lang mit ihnen beschäftigt. Denn sie sind eine Existenzfrage. Wenn an ihnen sogar Raum und Zeit enden und niemand sagen kann, was aus all dem wird, was sie verschlucken – was ist dann noch sicher, welche unserer Naturgesetze gelten dann noch? Oder geben sie am Ende doch wieder etwas her?<br /> In diesen kurzen Lektionen, im Rahmen der renommierten Reith Lectures von BBC Radio 4 vorgetragen, zieht de...

Habitability of the Universe before Earth
<i>Habitability of the Universe before Earth: Astrobiology: Exploring Life on Earth and Beyond (series)</i> examines the times and places—before life existed on Earth—that might have provided suitable environments for life to occur, addressing the question: Is life on Earth de novo, or derived from previous life? The universe changed considerably during the vast epoch between the Big Bang 13.8 billion years ago and the first evidence of life on Earth 4.3 billion years ago, providing significant time and space to contemplate where, when and under what circumstances life might have arisen. No other book covers this cosmic time period from the point of view of its potential ...

Habitus In Habitat III
A myriad of sensations inform and direct us when we engage with the environment. To understand their influence on the development of our habitus it is important to focus on unifying processes in sensing. This approach allows us to include phenomena that elude a rather narrow view that focuses on each of the five discrete senses in isolation. One of the central questions addressed in this volume is whether there is something like a sensual habitus, and if there is, how it can be defined. This is especially done by exploring the formation and habituation of the senses in and by a culturally shaped habitat. Two key concepts, ‘Synaesthesia and Kinaesthetics’, are addressed as...

Hack the Planet
An inside tour of the incredible—and probably dangerous—plans to counteract the effects of climate change through experiments that range from the plausible to the fantasticDavid Battisti had arrived in Cambridge expecting a bloodbath. So had many of the other scientists who had joined him for an invitation-only workshop on climate science in 2007, with geoengineering at the top of the agenda. We can&#39;t take deliberately altering the atmosphere seriously, he thought, because there’s no way we&#39;ll ever know enough to control it. But by the second day, with bad climate news piling on bad climate news, he was having second thoughts. When the scientists voted in a straw ...

Hacking the Atom
Steven B. Krivit's Explorations in Nuclear Research three-book series (Hacking the Atom, Fusion Fiasco, Lost History) describes the emergence of a new field of science, one that bridges chemistry and physics. The books give readers an understanding of low-energy nuclear reaction (LENR) research and its history and provide a rare behind-the-scenes look at the players and personalities involved. The books present the results of in-depth historical research and draw on formerly inaccessible archives to describe what occurred in the research that has been mistakenly called "cold fusion."<br /><br />Hacking the Atom, written for scientists and non-scientists alike, covers the ...

Hacking the Skies
Have you ever heard of geoengineering? If you haven't don't feel alone. Within these pages you too will become an 'expert' on this scientific field now altering our atmosphere and the very air we breathe. Geoengineering is a science mostly unheard of today by the general population and is defined as " a large scale intervention of the Earth's climatic system due to 'human made' climate change" (or greenhouse gases - GHG as defined by The Royal Society).<br /><br />Geoengineering the only planet known with intelligent life has been kept largely in the 'dark' due to a visible lack of reporting in mainstream media and broadsheets (newspapers) until now. This book helps to in...

Halbierte Wirklichkeit
Weithin hat die Meinung um sich gegriffen, allein mit Hilfe der Naturwissenschaften seien das Leben und die Welt zu begreifen. Doch das wäre nicht nur eine Bankrotterklärung für die Religion. Mit einer Absolutsetzung der Naturwissenschaften ist es zudem nur noch ein kleiner Schritt hin zur Ideologisierung einer Weltanschauung - mit unabsehbaren Folgen für unser Menschenbild.<br/> Demgegenüber zeigt Hans-Dieter Mutschler, dass die Naturwissenschaften und ganz besonders der sich daraus ableitende Materialismus nicht ausreichen können, um das Leben in all seinen Dimensionen zu verstehen. Denn die materialistische Weltsicht blendet weite Teile der Realität aus, die durch mate...

Half-Earth: Our Planet's Fight for Life
"An audacious and concrete proposal…Half-Earth completes the 86-year-old Wilson’s valedictory trilogy on the human animal and our place on the planet." —Jedediah Purdy, New Republic<br /><br />In his most urgent book to date, Pulitzer Prize–winning author and world-renowned biologist Edward O. Wilson states that in order to stave off the mass extinction of species, including our own, we must move swiftly to preserve the biodiversity of our planet. In this "visionary blueprint for saving the planet" (Stephen Greenblatt), Half-Earth argues that the situation facing us is too large to be solved piecemeal and proposes a solution commensurate with the magnitude of the problem:...

Halley's Quest
For most people, Edmond Halley is best known for accurately predicting the periodic appearance of the comet that ultimately would bear his name. But his greatest achievement may have been overlooked— indeed few people know that it was Halley who solved the riddle of accurate navigation for all sea-going vessels.<br /> As seventeenth-century scientists gradually came to believe that the inside of the Earth was magnetized they were puzzled by the fact magnetic north not only varied slightly from place to place, but gradually changed over time, suggesting a slow variation of the Earth's magnetic field. But if the Earth was permanently magnetized, how could its magnetism vary...

Hamiltonian Chaos Beyond the KAM Theory
“Hamiltonian Chaos Beyond the KAM Theory: Dedicated to George M. Zaslavsky (1935—2008)” covers the recent developments and advances in the theory and application of Hamiltonian chaos in nonlinear Hamiltonian systems. The book is dedicated to Dr. George Zaslavsky, who was one of three founders of the theory of Hamiltonian chaos. Each chapter in this book was written by well-established scientists in the field of nonlinear Hamiltonian systems. The development presented in this book goes beyond the KAM theory, and the onset and disappearance of chaos in the stochastic and resonant layers of nonlinear Hamiltonian systems are predicted analytically, instead of qualitatively. ...

Handbook For Healthcare Reform:
The notion of a &#34;public Health insurance option&#34; is not new. The book &#34;Handbook for Healthcare Reform: Foundation and Framework&#34; provides a look at foreign healthcare systems&#39; experience with very similar models. This book also reviews the healthcare-related policies that shape several foreign healthcare systems. What may surprise many Americans is that foreign nations increasingly rely on capitalistic incentives to attain their healthcare goals. Their healthcare systems are becoming increasingly less socialized than many might assume. Certain nations have already developed the public health insurance option havoing approached the the problem f...

Handbook for Heat Exchangers and Tube Banks design
When a heating fluid transfers heat to a heated fluid through a wall, if the fluids are in parallel flow or counter flow it is possible to compute exactly both the transferred heat and the temperatures of the fluids via well-known equations. This holds true both for design and verification computation. However, the motion of the fluids is never in parallel flow or counter flow in heat exchangers and in tube banks. Instead, it is rather complex and consists of a combination of various cross flows. Hence, a precise design of the above components requires, on a case-by-case basis, the availability of the value of certain crucial factors or of corrective factors so as to make...
