»Von Zeit zu Zeit erscheinen vor den Fenstern eines Raumschiffs Wunder ...« Millionen haben das Video gesehen, in dem der Astronaut Chris Hadfield singend und Gitarre spielend durch die Raumstation ISS schwebt. Fasziniert schauen die Menschen seither nach oben: Wie verändert der Blick aus 400 km Höhe die Sicht auf unser Leben? Chris Hadfield nimmt uns mit in schwindelerregende Sphären: Er erzählt von riskanten Manövern und von der Kunst, stets auf das Schlimmste vorbereitet zu sein und zugleich an das Unmögliche zu glauben. Chris Hadfield ist neun Jahre alt, als er im Juli 1969 die Mondlandung live im Fernsehen verfolgt. Augenblicklich weiß er, was er werden will: Astronaut! Mittlerweile hat er an die 4000 Stunden im Weltraum verbracht und gehört zu den erfahrensten Raumfahrern der Welt – zuletzt als Kommandeur der internationalen Raumstation ISS. Jetzt nimmt er uns mit in den Weltraum: Wir erfahren, wie man überhaupt Astronaut wird (für alle, die den Traum noch nicht aufgegeben haben), was man dafür alles können muss (u.a. Schwimmen!, Toiletten reparieren), wie sich der erste Raketenstart anfühlt (als säße man in einem Container, der von einem riesigen LKW gerammt wird) und was man beim ersten Raumspaziergang beachten muss. Eine realistische, humorvolle, aber auch demütige Liebeserklärung an das Leben auf der Erde und die Wunder des Universums, die uns zeigt, wie viel Bodenhaftung man braucht, um abheben zu können.

This life-science book tells about the early periods of evolution of life with the onset of Archeozoic Era. The Proterozoic Era fossils are our first findings and they are supposed to be of algae or bacteria. However, the Paleozoic Era is considered as the Age of Early Life . The significant topics discussed, in the language the young ones can understand, are: *Geological time *Fossils *Life in the Oceans *The Mesozoic era *Dinosaurs *Flying Reptiles *Archaeopteryx *The Cenozoic Era *Plant Evolution *Early Mammals *Early Man

When did life first appear on Earth and what form did it take? The answer to this intriguing and fundamentally important question lies somewhere within the early Archean rock record. The young Earth was, however, a very different place to that we know today and numerous pitfalls await our interpretation of these most ancient rocks. The first half of this practical guide equips the reader with the background knowledge to successfully evaluate new potentially biological finds from the Archean rock record. Successive steps are covered, from locating promising samples in the field, through standard petrography and evaluation of antiquity and biogenicity criteria, to the latest state of the art geochemical techniques. The second half of the guide uniquely brings together all the materials that have been claimed to comprise the earliest fossil record into an easily accessible, fully illustrated format. This will be a handbook that every Archean geologist, palaeobiologist and astrobiologist will wish to have in their backpack or on their lab-bench.

Life on Earth can be viewed as a complex network of interactions between living organisms and their respective environments. By parsing the natural world into various ecosystems and biomes, the extent and significance of such interaction among species and between organisms and their natural habitats becomes abundantly clear. The study of ecology forms the heart of this engaging volume, which explores the formation of ecological communities and examines the biological diversity that forms the backbone of life on the planet.

There are millions of different kinds of plants and animals living on the earth. Many millions more lived here in the past. Where did they all come from? Why have some become extinct and others lived on? In this remarkable book for children, Steve Jenkins explores the fascinating history of life on earth and the awe-inspiring story of evolution, Charles Darwin’s great contribution to modern science.

For non-majors introductory biology courses covering core areas such as cell biology, genetics, evolution, plant and animal anatomy and physiology, and ecology. A briefer version of the highly successful Biology: Life on Earth, 6/e (2002), Life on Earth, 3/e was developed in collaboration with a team of biology educators to meet the needs of non-majors. It is built on a steadfast tradition of accurate science, engaging presentation and media innovation. The new Media Tutor student CD-ROM is integrated into each chapter, as Media Tutor Tabs within each chapter show a sequence of activities found on the students CD. For the instructor, a new Instructors Resource CD-ROM conveniently provides all the tools needed to prepare for lecture in one easy-to-use CD. The result is a program that helps you draw students into biology through an engaging text, interactive media and exciting lecture presentation material. - NEW - Annotated Illustrations and Graphics - helps students focus on the most important points of scientific illustrations and graphs for better visual comprehension. - NEW - Big Picture Boxes - A brief statement that follows key biological concepts to summarise the central teac

Origins of Life on the Earth and in the Cosmos, Second Edition, suggests answers to the age-old questions of how life arose in the universe and how it might arise elsewhere. This thorough revision of a very successful text describes key events in the evolution of living systems, starting with the creation of an environment suitable for the origins of life. Whereas one may never be able to reconstruct the precise pathway that led to the origin of life on earth, one can certainly make some plausible reconstructions of it. Such discussions have greatly expanded our understanding of the principles of chemical evolution and how they compare and contrast with the principles of biological evolution. The text is strong on biochemistry and its recent applications to origins' research. * Provides an excellent review of basic biochemistry an evolution * Written in a clear, concise style for scientists, students, and readers interested in a scientific inquiry into the origins of life * Written by an authority in the field, and brought fully up-to-date in light of new research * Pulls together valuable information not found in a single source * Organized and presented in a manner conductive for use in a college course * Heavily illustrated to make difficult concepts concrete
