Beta Planet by Summary

In 2031, fifteen-year-old Geon awakes from a coma with a biolimb arm in a postapocalyptic tech-driven world he barely recognizes. Climate catastrophes-the EarthShift-have reduced the livable landmass to a mere 1 percent, and the EndWar has killed much of the human population off. The remaining governing bodies have united into the Coalition Against the Reduction of Earth-CARE-and severely restrict all facets of life. Geon, along with his sister, two foster brothers, and new caretaker, learns to survive in a society where every aspect of life is controlled. At first, he's happy to have a second chance, thrust into his first day of school, surrounded by confusing 3-D holograms and into the heart-pounding new sport of JetSurf. On the surface, things seem optimistic. But strange occurrences and a mysterious message from a supposedly dead old friend make Geon suspicious of CARE. Driven by a burning desire to know the truth, the foursome venture out in covert death-risking night missions to discover what CARE is hiding. Their search reveals a world of illegal holographic JungleWars, a secret underground society, and opulent hidden cities where only the elite survive. Ultimately, they discover a sinister plot to control the population and a dark truth about the planet's future. Geon must risk everything to expose CARE-or abandon millions of citizens to a horrible fate.

Planet X by Michael Jan Friedman Summary

An exciting crossover between the Starfleet's finest crew and Earth's greatest mutant heroes who must team together to stop a deadly threat to the Federation. On the planet Xhaldia, ordinary men and women are mutating into bizarre creatures with extraordinary powers. But is this a momentous evolutionary leap or an unparalleled catastrophe? The very fabric of Xhaldian society is threatened as fear and prejudice divide the transformed from their own kin. Dispatched to cope with the growing crisis, Captain Picard and the crew of the Starship Enterprise™ receive some unexpected visitors from another reality -- in the form of the group of mutant heroes known as the uncanny X-Men®. Storm, leader of the X-Men, offers their help in resolving a situation that is agonizingly similar to the human/mutant conflicts of their own time and space. But when hostile aliens appear in orbit around Xhaldia to try and abduct the transformed for use as a superpowered force in an attack on the Federation, even the combined forces of the crew of Starfleet and the X-Men may be unable to prevent an inferno of death and destruction. Starfleet's finest crew and Earth's greatest mutant heroes will need all their powers and abilities to save the Xhaldian people and stop a deadly threat to the Federation.

Infrared Space Interferometry Astrophysics the Study of Earth Like Planets by C. Eiroa Summary

The past year has produced some of the most exciting results in the history of astronomy, particularly in the area of planets outside our solar system. Only a half-year before our meeting in Toledo, Spain, the first unambiguous detection of planet-sized masses orbiting main sequence stars were reported. Since that time, evidence for a new exo planet has been reported almost at the rate of about once per month. Some of these objects are likely to turn out to be very low-mass stars, but something like half show characteristics - Jupiter-like mass and near-zero orbital eccentricity - which appear to be unique to planets. Almost at the same time that giant planets were being discovered regularly, the two major space agencies, ESA and NASA, have iden tified searches for and detailed study of Earth-like planets as a major priority for the future. In ESA's "Horizon 2000 Plus" programme, an infrared interferometer has been proposed as a possible future Cor nerstone mission. Similarly, scientists in the US produced the "Road Map for the Exploration of Neighboring Planetary Systems (ExNPS)", which provided NASA with a long-term plan which leads also to an infrared interferometer in space to study hypothetical Earth-like worlds beyond our Solar System. Such an observatory is designed to search for the thermal emission from a family of planets, using interferometric nulling to remove the contaminating light from the central star.

Classifying the Cosmos by Steven J. Dick Summary

Since the invention of the telescope 400 years ago, astronomers have rapidly discovered countless celestial objects. But how does one make sense of it all? Astronomer and former NASA Chief Historian Steven J. Dick brings order to this menagerie by defining 82 classes of astronomical objects, which he places in a beginner-friendly system known as "Astronomy’s Three Kingdoms.” Rather than concentrating on technicalities, this system focuses on the history of each object, the nature of its discovery, and our current knowledge about it. The ensuing book can therefore be read on at least two levels. On one level, it is an illustrated guide to various types of astronomical wonders. On another level, it is considerably more: the first comprehensive classification system to cover all celestial objects in a consistent manner. Accompanying each spread are spectacular historical and modern images. The result is a pedagogical tour-de-force, whereby readers can easily master astronomy’s three realms of planets, stars, and galaxies.

Twenty Worlds by Niall Deacon Summary

Thirty years ago, the only planets we knew were the ones orbiting our own sun; we now know of thousands of other worlds orbiting distant stars. In this book, astronomer Niall Deacon journeys to twenty of these globes: from giant, blisteringly hot planets orbiting close to their parent stars to planets that float through the cold wilderness of space alone, and from dead stars shredding asteroids to worlds made of diamond—and even planets that may be similar to the Earth. Deacon also takes in the latest exoplanet discoveries and explains how astronomers have come to learn so much about these strange and distant worlds. Twenty Worlds tells a sweeping story, of real planets around other stars, and it will fascinate a universe of fans of popular science and astronomy.
