Current Trends in Astrobiology

Astrobiology is a rapidly emerging field of intense scientific and technological activity, evident from the numerous recent space probes attempting to look for the possible existence of alien primeval life. This book explores the possibility of life on other planets and moons and exoplanets, either in their parent stars’ habitable ...

Evolved-God Creationism

This book answers fundamental questions not answered by either science or religion. How did our universe originate? Science says, “from the Big Bang”, but how did this come about? Religion says that it was created by God, but how did God originate? Our universe, with its relativity nature and quantum physics peculiarities, cannot e...

Space, Life, Science and Stories

Some time ago, an unusual book sold over seventy million copies and was translated into twenty-eight languages. It dealt with the possibility of life from the cosmos visiting humanity. This was just one of many surges of public interest in this matter. Unfortunately, the scientific community rarely addresses the causes of these sur...

Fundamentals of the Theory of Planning the Search for Space Objects

This book develops an original theory of the search for space objects, on which only crude orbital information is known. It uses a special principle to construct a plan for searching for such objects through optical or radar sensors. This principle maximally eliminates the loss of the sought-for object and provides an economical us...

Ordinary Chondrites from North-East India

The study of meteorites is wide-ranging, leading into many areas of technology and science. This book provides insights into the meteorites that fall and are found in the North-eastern region of India, and will appeal to the reader interested in the spectroscopic studies of planetary materials. It focuses on basic findings using Ra...

Einstein’s General Theory of Relativity

This book takes a historical approach to Einstein’s General Theory of Relativity and shows the importance that geometry has to the theory. Starting from simpler and more general considerations, it goes on to detail the latest developments in the field and considers several cutting-edge research areas. It discusses Einstein’s theory...

The Evolution of Stars

Why write a book about the stars? Of what use is their study? This book covers this ground with a number of anecdotes arising from the author’s almost 60 years’ experience as a research scientist who has worked with some of the largest telescopes in the world. The text exposes much of what is glossed over in the canned information ...
