Aliens : can we make contact with extraterrestrial intelligence? by Andrew J. H Clark( Book )

4 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and held by 701 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"If elementary life forms are common throughout the cosmos, could intelligent beings have evolved elsewhere, and are they seeking us out? A father-and-son-team of scientists - both with research background in astronomy and physics - gives us the most up-to-date scientific answers about extraterrestrial civilizations and our attempts to find them. If they exist, why haven't we been able to make contact? Could they be reluctant or unable to make themselves known? If aliens visited us before recorded history, are we now overdue for another visit? Even if we discount most UFO sightings as erroneous, how do we explain that more than four million Americans claim they have been abducted by aliens? Is there a case to be made for a future scientific study of UFOs?"--Jacket

Newton's tyranny : the suppressed scientific discoveries of Stephen Gray and John Flamsteed by David H Clark( Book )

7 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and held by 401 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sir Isaac Newton personifies the triumph of scientific reason over ignorance, yet Newton was a deeply complex man who sometimes aggressively tried to obscure the intellectual achievements of others. This is the story of two men who felt the full wrath of the great man's hostility: the Reverend John Flamsteed, the first Astronomer Royal, and Stephen Gray, a humble dyer and amateur scientist. United not only by a love of science, but by a bitter and protracted conflict with Newton, the two men made significant contributions to science despite the obstacles that Newton placed in their path. Gray produced the first experiment in electrical communications, and Flamsteed pioneered observational astronomy and navigation. Drawing upon letters and historical documents, the authors recreate the British scientific community of the early 18th century, an era in which the crucible of science was often heated by Machiavellian intrigue, uncontrollable ambition, and larger-than-life personalities.--From publisher description
