Great Astronomers: Galileo Galilei [First edition] (Annotated)

Product Description
Customer Reviews
Galileo Galilei (1564-1642) was an Italian physicist, mathematician, astronomer, and philosopher who played a major role in the Scientific Revolution. His achievements include improvements to the telescope and consequent astronomical observations and support for Copernicanism, which held that the Earth is not the center of the universe and that the Earth and planets revolve around the Sun. Galileo has been called the father of modern observational astronomy, the father of modern physics, and the father of modern science.<br /><br />This eBook tells the life story of Galileo, from a chapter in Great Astronomers by Sir Richard S. Ball (2nd edition, 1907). It begins:<br /><br />"Among the ranks of the great astronomers it would be difficult to find one whose life presents more interesting features and remarkable vicissitudes than does that of Galileo. We may consider him as the patient investigator and brilliant discoverer. We may consider him in his private relations, especially to his daughter, Sister Maria Celeste, a woman of very remarkable character; and we have also the pathetic drama at the close of Galileo's life, when the philosopher drew down upon himself the thunders of the Inquisition."<br /><br />The book explains Galileo's work and theories, along with a narrative of his personal troubles because of his science. The Catholic Church held that Galileo's theory was heretical, contrary to holy scripture. He was ordered never to speak of it, but he defied that order and was tried before the Inquisition again for heresy and defiance of a Papal decree.<br /><br />"...With his hands on the Gospels, Galileo was made to curse and detest the false opinion that the sun was the centre of the universe and immovable, and that the earth was not the centre of the same, and that it moved. He swore that for the future he will never say nor write such things as may bring him under suspicion, and that if he does so he submits to all the pains and penalties of the sacred canons."<br /><br />He was ordered to be secluded for the rest of his life and not to speak of his theory again. The book ends with this sad story of science versus dogma.

<b><b>A prescient warning of a future we now inhabit, where fake news stories and Internet conspiracy theories play to a disaffected American populace</b><br /><br /><b>“</b>A glorious book . . . A spirited defense of science . . . From the first page to the last, this book is a manifesto for clear thought.”—<i>Los Angeles Times</i></b><br /><br /> How can we make intelligent decisions about our increasingly technology-driven lives if we don’t understand the difference between the myths of pseudoscience and the testable hypotheses of science? Pulitzer Prize-winning author and distinguished astronomer Carl Sagan argues that scientific thinking is critical not only to the pursuit of truth but to the very well-being of our democratic institutions.<br /><br /> Casting a wide net through history and culture, Sagan examines and authoritatively debunks such celebrated fallacies of the past as witchcraft, faith healing, demons, and UFOs. And yet, disturbingly, in today's so-called information age, pseudoscience is burgeoning with stories of alien abduction, channeling past lives, and communal hallucinations commanding growing attention and respect. As Sagan demonstrates with lucid eloquence, the siren song of unreason is not just a cultural wrong turn but a dangerous plunge into darkness that threatens our most basic freedoms.<br /><br /> <b>Praise for<i> The Demon-Haunted World</i></b><br /><br /> “Powerful . . . A stirring defense of informed rationality. . . Rich in surprising information and beautiful writing.”<b>—<i>The Washington Post Book World</i></b><br /><br /> “Compelling.”<b>—<i>USA Today</i></b><br /><br /> “A clear vision of what good science means and why it makes a difference. . . . A testimonial to the power of science and a warning of the dangers of unrestrained credulity.”<b>—<i>The Sciences</i></b><br /><br /> “Passionate.”<b>—<i>San Francisco Examiner-Chronicle</i></b>

<h2>One Particle. One Force. One Theory.</h2><h2>Binary Physics – The Theory Of Everything.</h2><h3><b>A must-read book for every physics lover!</b></h3><p>In his new book, the Israeli physics researcher, Josef Zilberberg, describes a groundbreaking theory that translates all physical concepts into binary language using the insight of "Time Resolution".</p><p>Time resolution claims that the human brain 'shrinks' on the time axis, different cyclical patterns of a single elementary particle, and imagines it as different particles in space. The limited human brain is able to see the timeline only at low resolution. This is why it "compresses" a tremendous amount of "time units" that contain different patterns of the single elementary particle and imagines them as one time unit – "the present." The different patterns are interpreted by the human brain at low resolution as different particles with different properties – mass, energy, electric charge, spin...</p><p>To make it easier for understanding, "Time resolution" means that our brain works on the time axis in the same manner that he interprets the T.V. pixels at law resolution as one essence.</p><h3><b>Time resolution is the bridge between the jungle of "particles" of known physics and the single particle of Binary Physics</b></h3><p>Every different pattern of the elementary particle in the time axis, represents a "DNA" of a new particle - photon, electron, anti-electron, proton, anti-proton, neutron…As was the case when deciphering the human genome, in the future, the foundations of this theory will be used as a tool for understanding the algorithms that define the materials (their "DNA"). Thus we will easily be able to "program" new materials, and manipulate the properties of the existing materials.</p><h2><u>Scroll up to grab your copy of <b>Binary Physics</b> now!</u></h2>

Learn common core high school Algebra 1 after only 30 hours of study. This textbook covers every concept in high school Algebra 1 in only 120 pages. <br /><br />Typical high school Algebra textbooks can be over 800 pages long, full of complex theorems and postulates. Working as an engineer for a major international shipping company, the author has spent his entire career explaining complex subjects to senior (and highly paid) executives. If he used a “typical math textbook” approach to communicating with executives, he would have lost his job a long time ago.<br /><br />Executives, it is believed, are very busy – and they need quick and concise explanations to make quick and well-informed decisions. But are high school students any different? Do they have endless time to read 800 pages of postulates and theorems that have no application to modern work? This textbook is written as an anecdote to these problems, and to meet the needs of a modern high school student.

<b><i>NEW YORK TIMES</i> BESTSELLER • Award-winning actor Alan Alda tells the fascinating story of his quest to learn how to communicate better, and to teach others to do the same. With his trademark humor and candor, he explores how to develop empathy as the key factor.<br /></b><br /><b>“Invaluable.”—Deborah Tannen, #1 <i>New York Times </i>bestselling author of <i>You’re the Only One I Can Tell </i>and <i>You Just Don’t Understand</i></b><br /><br /> Alan Alda has been on a decades-long journey to discover new ways to help people communicate and relate to one another more effectively. <i>If I Understood You, Would I Have This Look on My Face?</i> is the warm, witty, and informative chronicle of how Alda found inspiration in everything from cutting-edge science to classic acting methods. His search began when he was host of PBS’s <i>Scientific American Frontiers,</i> where he interviewed thousands of scientists and developed a knack for helping them communicate complex ideas in ways a wide audience could understand—and Alda wondered if those techniques held a clue to better communication for the rest of us.<br /><br /> In his wry and wise voice, Alda reflects on moments of miscommunication in his own life, when an absence of understanding resulted in problems both big and small. He guides us through his discoveries, showing how communication can be improved through learning to relate to the other person: listening with our eyes, looking for clues in another’s face, using the power of a compelling story, avoiding jargon, and reading another person so well that you become “in sync” with them, and know what they are thinking and feeling—especially when you’re talking about the hard stuff.<br /><br /> Drawing on improvisation training, theater, and storytelling techniques from a life of acting, and with insights from recent scientific studies, Alda describes ways we can build empathy, nurture our innate mind-reading abilities, and improve the way we relate and talk with others. Exploring empathy-boosting games and exercises, <i>If I Understood You</i> is a funny, thought-provoking guide that can be used by all of us, in every aspect of our lives—with our friends, lovers, and families, with our doctors, in business settings, and beyond.<br /><br /><b>“Alda uses his trademark humor and a well-honed ability to get to the point, to help us all learn how to leverage the better communicator inside each of us.”—<i>Forbes</i></b><br /><br /><b>“Alda, with his laudable curiosity, has learned something you and I can use right now.”—Charlie Rose</b>
