The atmosphere and climate of Mars is a crucial factor, both for understanding the planet's past and appreciating the possibilities of its future. Given the high level of current interest in Mars, and the major advances afforded by recent space exploration, this book seeks to examine and review our knowledge and understanding of the meteorology and climate of Mars in its present state. This is based not only upon direct observations, but also on the newer techniques of modelling: numerical simulation and data assimilation. This authoritative discussion of Mars' atmosphere and climate gives a balanced review of some of the hottest issues concerning Mars' environments, its present and past climate and potential to support life, and its possible future following manned exploration.

Arguably the single most successful scientific instrument ever built, the Hubble Space Telescope continues to dazzle us. In recent months it has been at the front lines of all the most pressing questions in astrophysics. What is the age of the Universe? How are stars born? Are extrasolar planets similar to those in our galaxy? In Hubble Revisited: New Images from the Discovery Machine, the authors of the highly acclaimed Hubble: A New Window to the Universe present a new atlas of the latest full-color images, complete with easy-to-read explanatory text. This book provides readers with an exciting, detailed, and gorgeously illustrated account of Hubbles breathtaking new discoveries.

"These are the proceedings of an international conference held in June 2007 on Santorini Island, Greece, on the occasion of the 15th anniversary of the discovery of the first extrasolar planets around the radio pulsar PSR 1257+12. The year 2007 also happened to coincide approximately with the 60th birthday of their discoverer, Alex Wolszczan. The main scientific themes of the meeting included the detection and characterization of earth-like planets (using all presently available and future techniques), planets in extreme environments (dense star clusters, binaries), planets around evolved stars (giants, white dwarfs, pulsars), and the habitability of extreme planets. Both researcher and graduate students will benefit from the in-depth and up-to-date coverage of the theoretical and observational issues in the 62 invited talks and 17 contributed papers."--Publisher's website.
