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.

She's a Democrat, he's a Republican. She spends her days fighting global warming at an environmental non-profit, he makes his living doing PR for Bell Motors and their fleet of SUVs. But as soon as they meet, Emily Crossley and Robert Drake realize they have encountered their intellectual match. You're never challenged, he tells her. You've surrounded yourself in a cocoon of people who think exactly the same way you do. She hurls the same accusation back at him, and the fiery debates begin. Despite both of their attempts to derail it, there is no denying that they are falling in love. But their relationship is threatened by political differences, Robert's excessive work hours, and Emily's fear of losing her identity as she falls deeper in love. Can their love survive? The Drake Equation is a tale of modern love and all its complexities.

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.

For as long as there have been people, men and women have looked up into the night sky and wondered about the nature of the cosmos. Without the benefit of science to provide answers, they relied on myth and superstition to help them make sense of what they saw. Lucky for us, we live at a time when regular folks, equipped with nothing more than their naked eyes, can look up into the night sky and gain admittance to infinite wonders. If you know what to look for, you can make out planets, stars, galaxies , and even galactic clusters comprising hundreds of millions of stars and spanning millions of light-years. Astronomy For Dummies tells you what you need to know to make sense of the world above us. Written by one of the most well-known astronomers in the world, this fun, fact-filled ,and accessible guide fills you in on the basic principles of astronomy and tells you how to: Identify planets and stars Explore our solar system, the Milky Way, and beyond Understand the Big Bang, quasars, antimatter, black holes, and more Join the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence (SETI) Get the most out of planetarium visits Make more sense out of space missions From asteroids to black holes, quasars to white dwarfs, Astronomy For Dummies takes you on a grand tour of the universe. Featuring star maps, charts, gorgeous full-color photographs, and easy-to-follow explanations it gives you a leg up on the basic science of the universe. Topics covered include: Observing the night sky, with and without optics Selecting binoculars and telescopes and positioning yourself for the best view Meteors, comets, and man-made moons Touring our solar system and becoming familiar with the planets, asteroids, and near Earth objects Our Sun, stars, galaxies, black holes and quasars SETI and planets revolving around other suns Dark matter and antimatter The Big Bang and the evolutions of the universe You might think the cosmos is a vast and mysterious place, but Astronomy For Dummies will make it seem as friendly and familiar as your own backyard.
