This is a fascinating introduction to the history of Western astronomy, from prehistoric times to the origins of astrophysics in the mid-19th century. Historical records are first found in Babylon and Egypt, and after two millennia the arithmetical astronomy of the Babylonians merged with the Greek geometrical approach to culminate in the Almagest of Ptolemy. This legacy was transmitted to the Latin West via Islam, and led to Copernicus´s claim that the Earth is in motion. In justifying this, Kepler converted astronomy into a branch of dynamics, leading to Newton´s universal law of gravity. The book concludes with 18th- and 19th-century applications of Newton´s law, and the first explorations of the universe of stars. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Marc Vietor.

´´Astronomy compels the soul to look upward, and leads us from this world to another.” - PlatoEver looked out the window at night and found yourself staring at the universe, wondering what is up there? This has been a very common question among human beings since the dawn of time since civilization first existed. From the Nubian Monuments to the Egyptian Monuments and Stonehenge - these are archaeological proof from the past that astronomical studies have been a common interest among mankind throughout the ages. Astronomy essentially is the science of studying objects and phenomena in space, i.e. anything outside the Earth´s atmosphere. If you are a beginner of astronomy, you need to know that there is more to this subject than just identifying the stars lighting up the night sky. It also involves understanding how different celestial bodies move and how they influence other celestial bodies.The world of astronomy can open the doorway to the universe. You can learn about the different planets, stars, galaxies, comets, black holes, nebulae, and more as you dig deeper into this subject. At the end of the day, the stars are still the main reason and the most fascinating subject to most people. Perhaps that´s why astronomy is so popular these days with both children and adults alike. That´s probably also why you´re drawn to check out this book right now.We´ll give you a sneak peek of a world beyond the naked eye with some tips and background of astronomy and bridge that curiosity for you. It may possibly help you foster a love for it as a unique hobby and recreation for yourself. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Nathan E. Bradshaw.

In Astronomy’s Limitless Journey, astrophysicist Günther Hasinger takes the reader on a journey to the far reaches of the universe?an exciting time travel that begins with the incredibly hot fireball of the Big Bang roughly 13.8 billion years ago and ends in distant eons with its cold, dark demise. In between lie the times in which extensive structures, galaxies, stars, and planets form. As the field of astrophysics and cosmology experiences a ´´golden age” due to larger telescopes, faster computers, and more sophisticated algorithms, fundamental changes are taking place in our understanding of space and time and of the origin and future of our universe. Hasinger thoroughly explains these fascinating revelations and describes the methods utilized in modern astrophysics. He cautions, however, that the boundaries between knowledge and ignorance shift constantly; where our knowledge is so incomplete such that we can only speculate, the journey becomes shaky. Indeed, every new discovery opens a further door to the unknown and with every answered question, we discover more locked doors still to be opened. The book is published by University of Hawai‘i Press. ´´An excellent and captivating book that explains clearly our current understanding of the universe.” (Fred K. Y. Lo, director emeritus of the National Radio Astronomy Observatory) 1. Language: English. Narrator: Zen Wolfang. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/104256/bk_acx0_104256_sample.mp3.

Learn about the science of Astronomy with iMinds insightful audio knowledge series. The human desire to know what we see when we look in the sky is so great that a branch of science has been dedicated to it: astronomy. Astronomy is the study of the material universe outside the earth’s atmosphere. Astronomers research and make estimations about our universe and outer space in general. Human beings have been gazing up at the sky since before written history began. Millennia ago, humans witnessed the setting of the sun, seasonal changes and the phases of the moon. However, what human beings knew about this outer space region amounted to very little until relatively recently. The ancient philosopher Claudius Ptolemy wrote on astronomy in the second century. His main book is called Almagest, which translates as ´´great work”. It was written in about 150 CE and outlines the common belief that the earth was the centre of the universe. Ptolemy and his contemporaries believed the Earth did not move and did not spin on its axis because, if no movement can be felt, how could this be so? This same belief was held by most humans for the next 1500 years and was known as the Ptolemaic system.

While there are countless numbers of scientists who have contributed to our well-being, there are a few that stand out among the rest for their remarkable accomplishments. I recently came upon an old book entitled Famous Men in Science by Sarah Knowles Bolton that was first published in 1889. In her enjoyable and easy to read text, Bolton provides a glimpse of 14 distinguished thinkers, ranging from such luminaries as Carl Linnaeus to Louis Agassiz. Since the book is not readily available, here at the MSAC Philosophy Group we thought it might be helpful to select four biographies from Famous Men in Science and republish them in a new and readable format. To cover some of the major breakthroughs in the past four centuries we have chosen Galileo (astronomy), Newton (physics), Lyell (geology), and Darwin (biology). It is our hope that these small biographical vignettes will serve as intellectual appetizers and may whet the reader’s appetite for more. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jason Zenobia.

The Earth, the sun and moon, the planets, comets, asteroids and meteors - the solar system is all around us, yet how much do we truly know about it? When we explore the Earth and the layout of the sky, what can we learn about the meanings of the day, the year, the seasons, and the constellations? Which physical laws control what we see, and what are the natures of the celestial bodies? Professor James Kaler - a former Fulbright and Guggenheim Fellow and author of many acclaimed books on astronomy - answers these questions, taking us on a fascinating and informative voyage through the Solar System.The heart of this course examines the planets themselves, and reveals how they are constructed and how they differ from one another. By studying the physical astronomy of all the planets in the Solar System, we can attempt to understand their true nature. Ultimately, these lectures will bring us to a greater understanding of the Solar System´s creation, which brings us again back to the beginning and what it means to us as we look outward from our rotating Earth. 1.
