Searching for black holes ( Visual )
2 editions published between 1991 and 1997 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
At the center of galaxy NGC 1275, some 200 million light years from earth, there might be a supermassive black hole. In an attempt to map the galaxy and look deep into its heart, an international team of astronomers has linked radio telescopes throughout Europe and America in order to produce a picture of NGC 1275. Jessie Greenstein, the co-discoverer of quasars, and Italian radio astronomer Tiziana Venturi appear

Nucleosynthesis during the early history of the solar system by William A Fowler ( Book )
1 edition published in 1961 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Abundances in terrestrial and meteoritic matter indicate that the synthesis of D(2), Li(6), Li(7), Be(9), B(10) and B(11) and possibly C(13) and N(15) occurred during an intermediate stage in the early history of the solar system. In this intermediate stage, the planetary material had become largely separated, but not completely, from the hydrogen which was the main constituent of primitive solar material. Appropriate physical conditions were satisfied by solid planetesimals of dimensions from 1 to 50 metres consisting of silicates and oxides of the metals embedded in an icy matrix. The synthesis occurred through spallation and neutron reactions simultaneously induced in the outer layers of the planetesimals by the bombardment of high energy charged particles, mostly protons, accelerated in magnetic flares at the surface of the condensing Sun. The total particle energy was approximately 10 to the 45th power ergs while the average energy was close to 500 MeV per nucleon. Recent studies of the abundance of lithium in young T Tauri stars serve as the primary astronomical evidence for this point of view. The observed abundances of lithium and beryllium in the surface of the Sun are discussed in terms of the astronomical and nuclear considerations brought forward
