"If Ms. Frizzle were a physics student of Stephen Hawking, she might have written THE UNIVERSE IN YOUR HAND, a wild tour through the reaches of time and space, from the interior of a proton to the Big Bang to the rough suburbs of a black hole. It's friendly, excitable, erudite, and cosmic."―Jordan Ellenberg, New York Times besteselling author of How Not To Be WrongQuantum physics, black holes, string theory, the Big Bang, dark matter, dark energy, parallel universes: even if we are interested in these fundamental concepts of our world, their language is the language of math. Which means that despite our best intentions of finally grasping, say, Einstein's Theory of General Relativity, most of us are quickly brought up short by a snarl of nasty equations or an incomprehensible graph. Christophe Galfard's mission in life is to spread modern scientific ideas to the general public in entertaining ways. Using his considerable skills as a brilliant theoretical physicist and successful young adult author, The Universe in Your Hand employs the immediacy of simple, direct language to show us, not explain to us, the theories that underpin everything we know about our universe. To understand what happens to a dying star, we are asked to picture ourselves floating in space in front of it. To get acquainted with the quantum world, we are shrunk to the size of an atom and then taken on a journey. Employing everyday similes and metaphors, addressing the reader directly, and writing stories rather than equations renders these astoundingly complex ideas in an immediate and visceral way. Utterly captivating and entirely unique, The Universe in Your Hand will find its place among other classics in the field.

The study of exoplanetary atmospheres―that is, of planets orbiting stars beyond our solar system―may be our best hope for discovering life elsewhere in the universe. This dynamic, interdisciplinary field requires practitioners to apply knowledge from atmospheric and climate science, astronomy and astrophysics, chemistry, geology and geophysics, planetary science, and even biology. Exoplanetary Atmospheres provides an essential introduction to the theoretical foundations of this cutting-edge new science.Exoplanetary Atmospheres covers the physics of radiation, fluid dynamics, atmospheric chemistry, and atmospheric escape. It draws on simple analytical models to aid learning, and features a wealth of problem sets, some of which are open-ended. This authoritative and accessible graduate textbook uses a coherent and self-consistent set of notation and definitions throughout, and also includes appendixes containing useful formulae in thermodynamics and vector calculus as well as selected Python scripts.Exoplanetary Atmospheres prepares PhD students for research careers in the field, and is ideal for self-study as well as for use in a course setting.The first graduate textbook on the theory of exoplanetary atmospheresUnifies knowledge from atmospheric and climate science, astronomy and astrophysics, chemistry, planetary science, and moreCovers radiative transfer, fluid dynamics, atmospheric chemistry, and atmospheric escapeProvides simple analytical models and a wealth of problem setsIncludes appendixes on thermodynamics, vector calculus, tabulated Gibbs free energies, and Python scriptsSolutions manual (available only to professors)

Starting with the Big Bang, this book tells the story of the development of chemistry within our universe to the present day. Topics covered include: the spontaneous formation of the first chemical elements; the formation of higher chemical elements through stellar nucleosynthesis; the rich variety of 'alien' chemistry occurring in large interstellar gas clouds; formation of the solar system and evolution of the Earth; and the physical and chemical structure of today's atmosphere. Simple photochemical models are used to explain a range of phenomena such as the greenhouse effect, the formation of the ozone layer and the self-cleansing properties of the troposphere. Astrochemistry and Atmospheric Chemistry is suitable for undergraduates in chemistry and astrophysics, as well as anyone interested in the topic. This is a must-read for those who wish to understand the role of physical chemistry in the formation and current set-up of the world we live in.
