In August 2010, thirty-three miners were buried alive, two thousand feet below the surface of the earth. After seventeen tense days, just as hope was nearly gone, rescuers made contact with the men. Joy broke out around the world—all thirty-three men were alive! But it would be long weeks before they emerged from the mine. What did the miners feel, trapped in the steamy darkness so far underground? What did they eat? How did they get along? And most important, how did they survive in those seventeen days when death lingered so near, and after, during the long wait for rescue? This amazing true story about problem-solving, community, and real-life heroes is made kid-friendly by veteran nonfiction writer Elaine Scott. It will inspire for years to come.

In this engaging and accessible exploratory work, accomplished astrophysicist Neil F. Comins shows how ten hypothetical astronomical situations would affect our planet and life on it. What if the Moon didn't exist, for example? The Earth would be rotating much faster than it presently does, tides would be lower, and life would be much more primitive than it is today. "What if the Moon Didn't Exist?" has been made into TV, radio, planetarium, and theater shows, and became the theme to Mitsubishi's pavilion at the World Expo in Nagoya, Japan in 2005. Praise for What if the Moon Didn't Exist ..".a new genre...Seductively cunning...All these "what-ifs" have the cumulative effect of making us excruciatingly aware of what a special and precarious place we inhabit - and how easy it would have been for it to be otherwise." -The Washington Post "Imaginative and stimulating." -Booklist "Comins's scientific expertise is dizzying. It takes a rare writer to manipulate so many unknown factors with such ease and convincing detail. This book will thrill everyone who can't help wondering "what if..." -Astronomy Book Club

The moon has always been the most obvious feature in our night sky. It is our nearest celestial neighbour, orbiting the earth at an average distance of 384,400 kilometers, and is large enough to display significant detail even to the unaided eye. Our moon has drawn observers since the dawn of humankind, and all people have tried to make sense of the puzzles it poses and the questions it raises. The moon provided our ancient ancestors with one of the earliest means of keeping and measuring time, and many early religions had cults that worshipped it. When it eclipses the sun it provides one of the most awe-inspiring views in nature. In The Moon, celebrated amateur astronomer Bill Leatherbarrow provides expert insight into the history of our study of this compelling astronomical body. Drawing on his own decades of lunar observation, he describes how and why the observation and study of the moon has evolved, particularly in the age of telescopic study. He also offers an overview of current scientific thinking and developments in lunar science since the advent of the Space Age, even providing practical advice on how to make your own observations of the moon. Extensively illustrated with images of the lunar surface taken both from spacecraft and using amateur equipment, this book is an accessible introduction to complex astrophysical concepts that will give all amateur astronomers and anyone fascinated by this natural satellite something to moon over.
