The Atom: A Visual Tour The MIT Press

#ad
The MIT Press #ad - The atom is the engaging and straightforward introduction to the topic that we didn't get in school. The atom investigates the quest to identify the smallest, most fundamental constituents of matter―and how that quest helps us to understand what everything is made of and how it all works. It describes the amazing discoveries scientists have made about the fundamental building blocks of matter―from quarks to nuclear fission to the “God particle”―and explains them accessibly and concisely.

An accessible and engaging guide to the atom, the smallest, most fundamental constituent of matter. Until now, popular science has relegated the atom to a supporting role in defining the different chemical elements of the periodic table. Illustrated in color throughout, The Atom offers clear answers to questions we have all pondered, as well as some we have never even dreamed of.

The Atom: A Visual Tour The MIT Press #ad - Challoner covers a wide range of topics―including the development of scientific thinking about atoms and the basic structure of atoms; how atomic interactions account for the familiar properties of everyday materials; the power of the atomic nucleus; and what the mysterious quantum realm of subatomic particles can tell us about the very nature of reality.

In this book, Jack Challoner places the atom at center stage.

Light: The Visible Spectrum and Beyond

#ad
Black Dog & Leventhal #ad - Light allows us to see everything around us, but humans can only see a sliver of all light, known as the electromagnetic spectrum. Here, kim arcand and Megan Watzke present the subject of light as never before. Organized along the order of the electromagnetic spectrum, each chapter focuses on a different type of light.

An introductory chapter describes what light is and how it behaves, while hundreds of full-color photographs and illustrations demonstrate concepts and make for a stunning book that's a joy to read and browse. From radio waves, to x-rays, harnessed for telecommunications, which let us peer inside the human body and view areas around black holes in deep space, Arcand and Watzke show us all the important ways light impacts us.

Light: The Visible Spectrum and Beyond #ad - A visual exploration of the power and behavior of light, across the electromagnetic spectrum, and how it affects life on earth and everything in the Universe. Black dog Leventhal Publishers.

The Cell: A Visual Tour of the Building Block of Life

#ad
University of Chicago Press #ad - Chicago. These cellular singletons are every bit as successful and diverse as multicellular organisms, and our very existence relies on them. Black dog Leventhal Publishers. With the cell: a visual tour of the building Block of Life, Jack Challoner treats readers to a visually stunning tour of these remarkable molecular machines.

But the great majority of living things on our planet exist as single cell. Most multicellular organisms consist of many different types of cells, each highly specialized to play a particular role—from building bones or producing the pigment in flower petals to fighting disease or sensing environmental cues.

The Cell: A Visual Tour of the Building Block of Life #ad - Most of the living things we’re familiar with—the plants in our gardens, the animals we eat—are composed of billions or trillions of cells. The cell is the basic building block of life. Along the way, challoner sheds light on many of the most intriguing questions guiding current scientific research: What special properties make stem cells so promising in the treatment of injury and disease? How and when did single-celled organisms first come together to form multicellular ones? And how might scientists soon be prepared to build on the basic principles of cell biology to build similar living cells from scratch.

In its 3. 5 billion years on the planet, then across land, spreading life first throughout the seas, it has proven to be a powerhouse, developing the rich and complex diversity of life that populates the planet today. The book is an authoritative yet accessible account of what goes on inside every living cell—from building proteins and producing energy to making identical copies of themselves—and the importance of these chemical reactions both on the familiar everyday scale and on the global scale.
