The particle explosion by F. E Close( Book )

31 editions published between 1986 and 1996 in 3 languages and held by 1,678 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Examines the subatomic world, the science of particle physics, and its attempt to understand the very nature of matter and energy
The particle odyssey : a journey to the heart of the matter by F. E Close( Book )

20 editions published between 2002 and 2007 in English and Undetermined and held by 963 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With more than three hundred illustrations, The particle odyssey takes us on an exhilarating tour of the subatomic world. The pictures here are truly marvelous--over 100 of the best images ever taken of particle 'events'--mysterious, abstract, often beautiful photographs of the tracks of subatomic particles as they speed, curve, dance, or explode through cloud and bubble chambers, stacks of photographic emulsion, and giant multi-element detectors. There are illustrations of spiraling electrons, the tell-tale 'vees' of strange particles, matter and antimatter born from raw energy, energetic jets of particles spraying out from the decay points of quarks and gluons. Complementing the illustrations is a vividly written account of the key experiments and fundamental discoveries that have led to our current understanding of the nature of the universe. There are individual portraits of all the major subatomic particles, from the electron to the newly discovered top quark. The authors describe the history of experimental particle physics: its origins in the discovery of X-rays in 1895; the dissection of the atom by Rutherford and others; the unexpected revelations of the cosmic rays; the discovery of quarks and the rise of the 'standard model' in the last part of the 20th century

The most exciting scientific chase since DNA and the double helix
Spaceship Neutrino by Christine Sutton( Book )

16 editions published between 1992 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 717 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Try to imagine a spaceship that could pass right through the Earth without even noticing it was there; a spaceship that could cross the vastness of space at the speed of light, and then penetrate into the very heart of subatomic matter to seek out its fundamental structure. Imagine, then, a particle that is almost nothing that can tell you almost everything about the structure of matter and the evolution of the Universe. Impossible?
