Book 1 in the New York Times bestselling trilogy, perfect for fans of Battlestar Gallactica and Passengers! WHAT DOES IT TAKE TO SURVIVE ABOARD A SPACESHIP FUELED BY LIES? Amy is a cryogenically frozen passenger aboard the spaceship Godspeed. She has left her boyfriend, friends--and planet--behind to join her parents as a member of Project Ark Ship. Amy and her parents believe they will wake on a new planet, Centauri-Earth, three hundred years in the future. But fifty years before Godspeed's scheduled landing, cryo chamber 42 is mysteriously unplugged, and Amy is violently woken from her frozen slumber. Someone tried to murder her. Now, Amy is caught inside an enclosed world where nothing makes sense. Godspeed's 2,312 passengers have forfeited all control to Eldest, a tyrannical and frightening leader. And Elder, Eldest's rebellious teenage heir, is both fascinated with Amy and eager to discover whether he has what it takes to lead. Amy desperately wants to trust Elder. But should she put her faith in a boy who has never seen life outside the ship's cold metal walls? All Amy knows is that she and Elder must race to unlock Godspeed's hidden secrets before whoever woke her tries to kill again.

Our Place in the Universe

Author: Norman K. Glendenning

Publisher: World Scientific

ISBN: 9812708308

Category: Science

Page: 240

View: 1957

Our Place in the Universe tells the story of our world, formation of the first galaxies and stars formed from great clouds containing the primordial elements made in the first few minutes; birth of stars, their lives and deaths in fiery supernova explosions; formation of the solar system, its planets and many moons; life on Earth, its needs and vicissitudes on land and in the seas; finally exoplanets, planets that surround distant stars. Interspersed in the text are short pieces on some of those who revealed these wonders to us. It is written in a very authoritative and readable form and contains more than 100 color prints of the marvelous galaxies, and nebula that have been taken from space-based and land-based telescopes carried by NASA missions, the European Space Agency, the European Southern Laboratory in Chile and many other sources.

Out of our tendency to believe in something bigger than ourselves, we created an all-powerful God, this God is supposed to be capable of supplying all of our needs. It is considered here that this God in the Bible is a myth handed down through fables, folklores and allegories. There is no supernatural God, only a Balance in the Universe, this balance keeps the Universe in perfect motion, and supplies all the necessary resources needed for this magnificient creation to continue. We will reach our ultimate development when we learn to believe and trust in each other.

The study of the origin and evolution of the universe encompasses many of the most fascinating questions in science. What is our place in the universe? How did everything in it get started, from galaxies and stars, to planets and people? And what does the future hold, for our star, and our universe? Recently, scientists have made remarkable advances in providing concrete answers to these profound questions. The new technologies of observational astronomy, with its ground- and space-based gamma-ray, X-ray, ultraviolet, infrared and radio telescopes, is truly producing a new golden age of discovery. This book presents the excitement of these new discoveries in the larger context of cosmic evolution. The distinguished contributors are leading researchers at the cutting edge of these fields, and they also excel in explaining these subjects to the broader public. They offer the latest insights into these rapidly advancing fields, covering the origin and evolution of the universe, the chemical elements, galaxies, the evolution of stars, planets, and biological life. Essential physical concepts are clearly and carefully explained at the introductory college level. Related concepts from chemistry, geology, and biology are organized and integrated into the discussions. An extensive glossary is provided, and mathematical detail has been deliberately kept simple, to make the chapters accessible to anyone with an appreciation of science. The result is stimulating exploration of the frontiers of modern science that will intrigue both amateurs and professionals.

Intricate Maze of the Universe

Author: Tajeco

Publisher: AuthorHouse

ISBN: 1438913508

Category: Body, Mind & Spirit

Page: 108

View: 1187

Intricate Maze of the Universe is the second published book by author Tajeco. His first book, Infinite Floetry, was released in 2001. This new book is a continuation of the first, consisting of poetry, lyrics, observations, social commentary, and imaginative word play. Intricate Maze of the Universe captures the highlights from Tajeco's unpublished books #5 through #8, written between January 8, 2001, and July 13, 2008. Tajeco believes we should not distance ourselves mentally or spiritually from other people on this planet, simply because we live in different apartments, houses, towns, cities, states, countries, or continents. Here we are, on our Earth, part of our Sun's solar system, in the Milky Way Galaxy, among billions of galaxies in this vast amount of space. Journey into the depths of your mind, and take your time, as you make your way through the Intricate Maze of the Universe.
