<span style="color: Brown"><span class="bold">Revolutionaries of the Cosmos: The Astro-Physicists
By Ian Glass
Oxford University Press | 2008 | ISBN: 0199550255 | 336 pages | PDF | 10 mb</span></span>
Galileo, Newton, Herschel, Huggins, Hale, Eddington, Shapley and Hubble: these astronomers applied ideas drawn from physics to astronomy and made dramatic changes to the world-pictures that they inherited. They showed that celestial objects are composed of the same materials as the earth and that they behave in the same way. They displaced successively the earth, the sun and finally the milky way galaxy from being the centre of the universe. This book contains their biographies and outlines their greatest discoveries. Hard work, physical insight, desire for fame and a strong belief in the rightness of their own ideas were characteristics of all eight. Their often quirky personalities led them into bitter controversies with their contemporaries. But their successes arose from the outstanding clarity of their thoughts, their practical ability and their strong sense of direction in science.

Saturn and How to Observe It
By Julius Benton
Springer | 2005 | ISBN: 1852338873 | 184 pages | PDF | 4,2 mb</span></span>
This new series is designed especially for practical amateur astronomers who not only want to observe, but want to know the details of exactly what they are looking at. Saturn is the second largest planet in the solar system, and the only one with a spectacular ring system that is easily visible from Earth. Saturn is a gas-giant, a huge world dominated by its rings and a retinue of moons. It is probably the most commonly observed and imaged planet for amateur astronomers, because it is always changing - the moons move visibly in the course of an hour, the weather systems on the planet change, and the orientation of the ring alters this way and that.The concept of the book - and the series - is to present an up-to-date detailed description (part one); and then (part two) to consider how best to observe and record the planet, its moons and its ring system successfully."Saturn and How to Observe It" is a mine of information for all levels of amateur observers, from the beginner to the experienced.

by Kim Masters Evans

Humans have always been explorers. When ancient humans stumbled across unknown lands or seas, they were compelled to explore them. They were driven by a desire to dare and conquer new frontiers and by a thirst for knowledge, wealth, and prestige. These are the same motivations that drove people of the twentieth century to venture into space.
