More than a few greatest hits of the physicists right from the singularities of the gravitational collapses, to the revolutionary quantum theory related to gravity, were astounding accomplishments of a sole man, who is renowned to the entire world today, as Stephen Hawking. That was not alone, though. There is much more to know about his spectacular findings about the cosmos.<br />

FOREWORD<br /><br />For many centuries scientific information about the planets and the vast void that separates them has been collected by astronomers observing from the surface of the Earth. Now, with the flight of Mariner II, we suddenly have in our hands some 90 million bits of experimental data measured in the region between Earth and the planet Venus. Thus, man for the first time has succeeded in sending his instruments far into the depths of space, and indeed, in placing them near another planet. A whole new area of experimental astronomy has been opened up.<br /><br />This book is a brief record of the Mariner Project to date and is designed to explain in general terms the preliminary conclusions. Actually, it will be months or years before all of the data from Mariner II have been completely analyzed. The most important data were the measurements made in the vicinity of the planet Venus, but it should also be noted that many weeks of interplanetary environmental measurements have given us new insight into some of the basic physical phenomena of the solar system. The trajectory data have provided new, more accurate measurements of the solar system. The engineering measurements of the performance of the spacecraft will be of inestimable value in the design of future spacecraft. Thus, the Mariner II spacecraft to Venus not only looks at Venus but gives space scientists and engineers information helpful in a wide variety of space ventures.<br /><br />A project such as Mariner II is first a vast engineering task. Many thousands of man-hours are required to design the complex automatic equipment which must operate perfectly in the harsh environment of space. Every detail of the system must be studied and analyzed. The vi operations required to carry out the mission must be understood and performed with precision. A successful mission requires every member of the entire project team to do his task perfectly. Whether it be the error of a designer, mechanic, mathematician, technician, operator, or test engineer—a single mistake, or a faulty piece of workmanship, may cause the failure of the mission. Space projects abound with examples of the old saying, “For want of a nail, the shoe was lost ...,” and so on, until the kingdom is lost. Only when every member of the project team is conscious of his responsibility will space projects consistently succeed.<br /><br />The Mariner II Project started with the Lunar and Planetary Projects Office of the Office of Space Sciences at NASA in Washington. Jet Propulsion Laboratory, California Institute of Technology, personnel provided the main body of the team effort. They were heavily supported by industrial contractors building many of the subassemblies of the spacecraft, by scientists planning and designing the scientific experiments, and by the Air Force which supplied the launching rockets. Several thousand men and women had some direct part in the Mariner Project. It would be impossible to list all of those who made some special contribution, but each and every member of the project performed his job accurately, on time, and to the highest standards.<br /><br />Mariner II is only a prelude to NASA’s program of unmanned missions to the planets. Missions to Mars as well as Venus will be carried out. Spacecraft will not only fly by the planets as did Mariner II, but capsules will be landed, and spacecraft will be put into orbit about the planets. The next mission in the Mariner series will be a flyby of the planet Mars in 1965.<br /><br />By the end of the decade, where will we be exploring, what will new Mariners have found? Will there be life on Mars, or on any other planet of the solar system? What causes the red spot on Jupiter? What is at the heart of a comet? These and many other questions await answers obtained by our future spacecraft. Mariner II is just a beginning.<br /><br />W. H. Pickering

The Biggest Lie in History is about to be Shattered.<br /> UFOs are real. In late June of 1947, three extraterrestrial craft were downed outside Roswell Air Force Base. Many more followed, revealing dozens of ET species and a Rosetta Stone to a new physics an energy generation and propulsion system responsible for interstellar space travel. This new system could have easily replaced oil, gas, coal, nuclear plants and with them, the entire geo-political and economic order on our planet -- only a cabal of bankers, the Military Industrial Complex, and Big Oil stopped it. We've been lied to. And now, 70 years after Roswell the witnesses to that lie have come forward to testify in a MUST-READ book that will shock the world. Look for the accompanying documentary to be released from The Orchard, a division of Sony.

An actual Experiencer's accounts of interaction with Aliens via his psychic ESP and Remote-Viewing capabilities. What he sees and says may frighten you or even confirm what you believe to be true. PS it's much more than we thought ...<br /><br />Yes, Aliens are here; and this book helps answer the questions of: Why are they here? and What do they want?<br /><br />In this book our Experiencer recounts what he sees when out-of-body and hears via mental telepathy with humans and Aliens. Traveling UFOs in the sky plus tunnels under the Earth are what he sees plus the Alien technologies used to power those craft and dig the tunnels. There are vast underground cities and military bases throughout the USA; and our Experiencer visits them out-of-body via ESP and tells us what he sees.<br /><br />His accounts confirm what many conspiracy theorists and UFO hunters believe to be true. But he is seeing them, first-hand via his psychic abilities. It's much more than we thought to be true ... please read for yourself. Author is Dr Laurence B Wolfe<br />

Dark matter is an undetected mass form that leaves no light or least light and could be identified through its gravitational forces. The existence of the dark energy and the dark matter were found late in the 1930s. There were solid evidences in the findings of the early 20th century scientist work for the existence of the dark matter that emits least light. <br />Sources of a repulsive force that is undetected by humans so far, is the dark energy. This dark energy is accelerating the rate at what the universe is expanding. The existence of the dark energy and the dark matter were just recent findings. There is no depth in the understanding of these matter and energy.

<p></p><p>If you have ever wanted to understand the basic principles of astronomy and celestial movements, you should read this book. Using pictures of the sky observed from different places on Earth, as well as drawings of ancient astronomical methods and tools, Prof. Sun Kwok tells this story in an entertaining and fascinating way.</p>Since the beginning of human civilization, people have wondered about the structure of the cosmos and our place in the Universe.  More than 2,000 years ago, our ancestors knew that the seasons were unequal, the Earth was an unattached object floating in space, and stars existed that they could not see.  From celestial observations, they concluded that the Earth was round.  Using simple tools and mathematics, ancient astronomers accurately determined the sizes of the Earth and Moon, the distance to the Moon, and the lengths of the months and year. <p></p><p> </p><p><br /> With a clever device called the armillary sphere, Greek astronomers could predict the times of sunrise and sunset on any day of the year, at any place on Earth. They developed sophisticated mathematical models to forecast Mars’ motions hundreds of years into the future. <br /> <br /> Find out how ancient observers achieved these remarkable feats. With minimal use of mathematics, this book retraces the footsteps of our ancestors, explains their intellectual journeys in simple terms, and explores the philosophical implications of these discoveries. </p><p></p><p></p><p></p> <p></p>
