Our Explosive Sun PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Our Explosive Sun free pdf The Sun, which is our own star at the center of the Solar System, gives rise to all life on Earth and is the driver of photosynthesis in plants and the source of all food and energy for living things. As seen with the naked eye, the Sun appears as a static and quiet yellow disk in the sky. However, it is a stormy and ever-changing star that contributes much more than light and heat. For example, it is the source of the beautiful northern lights and can affect our technology-based society in many ways. "Our Explosive Sun: A Visual Feast of our Source of Light and Life" is a great introduction to the Sun for general readers as well as scientists who are not solar physicists. This book presents the basic properties of the Sun, describes how it has fascinated humans throughout history, and shows how it influences our current technologies. This book includes a large number of illustrations and video materials for Springer Extras, along with a PowerPoint presentation that provides a useful resource for teachers and lectures.
