Meteor Showers and their Parent Comets is a unique handbook for astronomers interested in observing meteor storms and outbursts. Spectacular displays of 'shooting stars' are created when the Earth's orbit crosses a meteoroid stream, as each meteoroid causes a bright light when it enters our atmosphere at high speed. Jenniskens, an active meteor storm chaser, explains how meteoroid streams originate from the decay of meteoroids, comets and asteroids, and how they cause meteor showers on Earth. He includes the findings of recent space missions to comets and asteroids, the risk of meteor impacts on Earth, and how meteor showers may have seeded the Earth with ingredients that made life possible. All known meteor showers are identified, accompanied by fascinating details on the most important showers and their parent comets. The book predicts when exceptional meteor showers will occur over the next fifty years, making it a valuable resource for both amateur and professional astronomers.

"Wine was free, but we had to pay for water." Joe Chiriaco and his thirteen siblings heard this from their Italian immigrant father as he recounted his ocean journey to America. In the face of limited water and rudimentary dirt roads, Joe and his Norwegian wife, Ruth Bergseid, founded Chiriaco Summit in the 1930s, a desert travel oasis on today's Interstate 10 between Phoenix and Los Angeles, promising to serve the world on wheels. The twenty-four-seven challenges are lightened with the courtship of two feisty lovers, the frolicking of youngsters in the desert, more loves, and the juxtaposition of some very imposing personalities, including those of Joe Chiriaco and General Patton. After moving through new aqueducts and highways, military camps, societal upheavals, and a welcome new set of hard-working immigrants, the twenty-first century brings provisions for electric cars, modern aircraft, and ATV facilities outside Joshua Tree National Park from whence the first Summit waters flowed.

With over 35 million albums sold in their thirty-year career, the Canadian rock trio Rush clearly has been embraced by discerning music fans around the world. The band's musical and lyrical depth and complexity has inspired everything from comic books to novels. Fans on all levels extract varying degrees of meaning and emotion from the band's extensive and ever-changing catalog. This book is one fan's labor of love; an exploration of how the band's lyrical panorama changed from the fantastic to the realistic, from sci-fi adventures to gritty portraits of how humans face the modern world. This is by no means a definitive work exposing what the band's implicit messages and themes convey-that is beyond anyone's scope save that of the band itself. Rather, A Simple Kind Mirror is a song-by-song journey through Rush's 1980 to 1996 offerings, placing the social commentaries covered within. The beauty of this band is that fans can identify with them on many levels and process their messages in personal and individual ways. In A Simple Kind Mirror, Len Roberto explores the foundation of hope and inspiration Rush carries throughout its portfolio.

This book is for KIDS who love to read the SPACE SCIENCE. This book is one of the best choice for kids who like 'Astronomy' or 'Space Science'. This book illustrates about Asteroids. The beauty of the book is numbers of COLORFUL PICTURES are given to gain interest of kids in the Science. Many of us look at the sky in the night and observe the beautiful twinkling Stars. Have you ever observed a 'Falling star' in the sky at night? Many will say 'Yes'. We have probably seen this remarkable scene. You were actually seeing 'a meteor'. This book illustrates about 'a meteor shower'.It is very important to learn about asteroids. We all know that millions of years ago, asteroids hit the Earth and made all dinosaurs disappear. A collision 66 million years ago between The Earth and an object (which was approximately 10 Kilometers wide) is thought to have produced the extinction event for dinosaurs. Asteroids are 'minor planets' as they are much smaller in size than planets. They are usually found in the inner solar systems. It is small and rock like objects that orbit the Sun. Asteroids are made from different kinds of rocks and metals, with the metal being mostly the Nickel and Iron. Asteroids don't have an atmosphere.Our solar system began about 4.6 billion years ago. At this time, a big cloud of gas and dust collapsed and the most of the material fell to the center of the cloud. This resulted into formation of 'the Sun'. Some of the condensing dust in the cloud became planets. Some objects in the 'asteroid belt' could not form into planets. There are lots of asteroids in our solar system. Most of these asteroids live in the main 'asteroid belt'.About Author: Author is Post Graduate in Mechanical Engineering field.

One look at Shane McBride told Christy Calhoun to run away—fast. The long, lean and very sexy rancher's every move shouted danger, and she'd sworn to avoid romance again. Unfortunately, with a broken-down RV, Christy had no choice but to stay for a spell… Shane would've sooner mucked stalls than play host to his gorgeous houseguest! He'd vowed never to let a woman into his home, and this one reminded him why. The tempting beauty tested his normally rock-solid self-control. And this unfamiliar feeling was becoming way too hard to handle…

Mad In Translation

This is the first book to translate a broad spectrum of the informal, improper and generally comic side of 31-syllable Japanese poetry called 'kyoka, ' or 'kyouka, ' literally, "mad-poems" or "madcap verse," representing in the words of Aston (1899), "absolute freedom both in respect of language and choice of subject." Literary anthologies have only translated a handful of kyoka to date, and the sole exception, recent catalogues of the color prints called 'surimono, ' stick to the rather tame kyoka of the early 19c that accompany the prints. The 2000 poems in Robin D. Gill's 740-page book include hundreds of "wild waka" ('waka' being the formal side of 31-syllable poetry) to help define the field and demonstrate how humors presence or absence depends upon our expectations and, in the case of an exotic tongue, our translation. "Mad In Translation" re-creates the wit of the originals in English on the one hand, while explaining what requires Japanese on the other. Many poems will delight those who appreciate the best of the Metaphysical Poets, the grooks of Piet Hein and all that might be called 'light verse for egg-heads.' Because of the narrow focus of most work published on kyoka in Japan, even specialists in Japanese literature may be surprised to discover in this book a brave old world of humor far larger and more entertaining than they might have imagined.
