Canadian academic Martin Beech has written a text that attempts to cross the line between science fiction and science fact. Put simply, his book details a method that just might be able to stop the Sun from losing its power and, ultimately, save humanity and the Earth itself. It investigates the idea that the distant future evolution of our Sun might be controlled (or ‘asteroengineered’) so that it maintains its present-day energy output rather than becoming a bloated red giant star: a process that would destroy all life on Earth.

It may at first seem that the world of subatomic physics is far removed from our every day lives. Isn’t it all just a waste of time and taxpayers' money? Hopefully, all who read this book will come to a different conclusion. Collider physics is all about our origins, and this aspect alone makes it worthy of our very best attention. The experiments conducted within the vast collider chambers are at the forefront of humanity’s quest to unweave the great tapestry that is the universe. Everything is connected. Within the macrocosm is the microcosm. By knowing how matter is structured, how atoms and elementary particles interact, and what forces control the interactions between the particles, we discover further clues as to why the universe is the way it is, and we uncover glimpses of how everything came into being. The Large Hadron Collider (LHC), in the process of coming online at CERN, is the world’s largest and most complex machine. It represents the pinnacle of human ingenuity, and its physical characteristics, costs, and workings astound us at every turn. We are literally humbled by the machine that has been produced through a grand international collaboration of scientists. This book is about what those scientists hope to discover with the LHC, for hopes do run high, and there is much at stake. Careers, reputations and prestigious science prizes will be realized, and possibly lost, in the wake of the results that the LHC will produce. And there are risks, real and imagined. The LHC will probe the very fabric of matter and it will help us understand the very weft and the weave of the universe.

The Great Silence explores the multifaceted problem named after the great Italian physicist Enrico Fermi and his legendary 1950 lunchtime question "Where is everybody?" In many respects, Fermi's paradox is the richest and the most challenging problem for the entire field of astrobiology and the Search for ExtraTerrestrial Intelligence (SETI) studies. This book shows how Fermi's paradox is intricately connected with many fields of learning, technology, arts, and even everyday life. It aims to establish the strongest possible version of the problem, to dispel many related confusions, obfuscations, and prejudices, as well as to offer a novel point of entry to the many solutions proposed in existing literature. 'Cirković argues that any evolutionary worldview cannot avoid resolving the Great Silence problem in one guise or another.

Das atemberaubende Bild unserer Zivilisation in tausend Jahren Am Ende des nächsten Jahrtausends steht die Menschheit vor einem tiefgreifenden Umbruch. Sie hat nicht nur die Grenzen ihres Heimatplaneten hinter sich gelassen und das Sonnensystem bevölkert, sondern auch die Beschränkungen des eigenen Körpers überwunden: von Geburt an ist jeder Mensch Teil eines gigantischen virtuellen Netzes. Doch der vermeintliche Fortschritt erweist sich als äußerst brüchig, als aus den Tiefen des Alls eine Katastrophe droht, die die Zivilisation in einem Schlag vernichten könnte – wenn sie nicht den nächsten Schritt vollbringt und den letzten Rätseln des Universums auf die Spur kommt.

Der erste Griff nach den Sternen Die Zukunft. Erstmals seit Menschengedenken soll ein Raumschiff unser Sonnensystem verlassen und einen benachbarten Stern erforschen. Doch im interstellaren Raum macht die Crew der SunSeeker eine unglaubliche Entdeckung: Ein künstliches, schalenförmiges Objekt mit einem eigenen Stern in der Mitte bewegt sich ebenfalls auf ihr Ziel zu – und es ist bewohnt! Ein Erkundungstrupp wird ausgeschickt, und was den Menschen dort begegnet, verändert den Blick auf alles, was man bislang über das Universum zu wissen glaubte ...
