TitleStamping the Earth from Space
Author(s)Dicati, Renato
PublicationCham, 1. Imprint: Springer 2. Springer International Publishing, 2017.
DescriptionXXIV, 429 p. 407 illus. in color : online resource
Abstract NoteThis unique book presents a historical and philatelic survey of Earth exploration from space. It covers all areas of research in which artificial satellites have contributed in designing a new image of our planet and its environment: the atmosphere and ionosphere, the magnetic field, radiation belts and the magnetosphere, weather, remote sensing, mapping of the surface, observation of the oceans and marine environments, geodesy, and the study of life and ecological systems. Stamping the Earth from Space presents the results obtained with the thousands of satellites launched by the two former superpowers, the Soviet Union and the United States, and also those of the many missions carried out by the ESA, individual European countries, Japan, China, India, and the many emerging space nations. Beautifully illustrated, it contains almost 1100 color reproductions of philatelic items. In addition to topical stamps and thematic postal documents, the book provides an extensive review of astrophilatelic items. The most important space missions are documented through event covers and cards canceled at launch sites, tracking stations, research laboratories, and mission control facilities

TitleLords of the Ice Moons : A Scientific Novel
Author(s)Carroll, Michael
PublicationCham, 1. Imprint: Springer 2. Springer International Publishing, 2018.
DescriptionXVIII, 213 p. 16 illus., 6 illus. in color : online resource
Abstract NoteIn the aftermath of an asteroid impact, Earth???s power grid is damaged nearly beyond recovery. The survival of our world may well depend on energy sources collected from an abandoned undersea settlement beneath the icy surface of Enceladus. Earth-raised Colonel Carter Rhodes, in charge of Earth???s recovery efforts, calls upon Gwen Bar??, a Venusian engineer, to regain control of the deserted moon outpost and collect fuel for Earth???s collapsing power grids. However, what Gwen discovers churning in the subsurface waters of Enceladus brings their straightforward plans to a crashing halt. Soon, Gwen finds herself in the middle of an interplanetary standoff. Win, and give the last humans on Earth a chance to survive. Lose, and risk the permanent dismantling of human society across the Solar System. Forced to take sides in this war for power, resources, and species survival, Gwen must make choices that not only affect her own life, but also force her to question what "life" itself might really mean. Will the promise of Enceladus energy be enough to salvage what is left of Earth???s society? Are these humans worthy of salvation?

TitleMathematical Modelling of Chromosome Replication and Replicative Stress
Author(s)Karschau, Jens
PublicationCham, 1. Imprint: Springer 2. Springer International Publishing, 2015.
DescriptionXIII, 76 p. 57 illus., 9 illus. in color : online resource
Abstract NoteDNA replication is arguably the most crucial process at work in living cells. It is the mechanism by which organisms pass their genetic information from one generation to the next, and life on Earth would be unthinkable without it. Despite the discovery of DNA structure in the 1950s, the mechanism of its replication remains rather elusive. ?? This work makes important contributions to this line of research. In particular, it addresses two key questions in the area of DNA replication: which evolutionary forces drive the positioning of replication origins in the chromosome; and how is the spatial organization of replication factories achieved inside the nucleus of a cell? ?? A cross-disciplinary approach uniting physics and biology is at the heart of this research. Along with experimental support, statistical physics theory produces optimal origin positions and provides a model for replication fork assembly in yeast. Advances made here can potentially??further our understanding of??disease mechanisms??such as the abnormal replication in cancer
