Read online Astronomy for Entertainment.pdf PDF, EPUB, MOBI, TXT, DOC Astronomy for Entertainment Astronomy is a fortunate science it needs no embellishments said the French savant Arago So fascinating are its achievements that no special effort is needed to attract attention Nonetheless the science of the heavens is not only a collection of astonishing revelations and daring theories Ordinary facts things that happen day by day are its substance Most laymen have generally speaking a rather hazy notion of this prosaic aspect of astronomy They find it of little interest for it is indeed hard to concentrate on what is always before the eye p Everyday happenings in the sky are the contents of this book free from professional terminology with easy reading Its purpose is to initiate the reader into the basic facts of astronomy Ordinary facts with which you may be acquainted are couched here in unexpected paradoxes or slanted from an odd and unexpected angle solely to excite the imagination and quicken your interest The daily aspect of the science of the skies its beginnings not later findings that mainly form the contents of Astronomy for Entertainment The purpose of the book is to initiate the reader into the basic facts of astronomy Ordinary facts with which you may be acquainted are couched here in unexpected paradoxes or slanted from an odd and unexpected angle The theme is as far as possible free from terminology and technical paraphernalia that so often make the reader shy of books on astronomy p p Books on popular science are often rebuked for not being sufficiently serious In a way the rebuke is just and support for it can be found if one has in mind the exact natural sciences in the tendency to avoid calculations in any shape or form And yet the reader can really master his subject only by learing how to reckon even though in a rudimentary fashion Hence both in Astronomy for Entertainment and in other books of this series the aurhor has not attempted to avoid the simplest of calculations True he has taken care to present them in an easy form well within the reach of all who have studied mathematics at school It is his conviction that these exercises help not only retain the knowledge acquired they are also a useful introduction to more serious reading p p This book contains chapters relating to the Earth the Moon planets stars and gravitation The author has concentated in the main on materials not usually discussed in works of this nature Subjects omitted in the present book will he hopes be treated in a second volume The book it should be said makes no attempt to analyze in detail the rich content of modern astronomy p p Unfortunately Y Perelman never wrote the continuation he had planned for this book as untimely death in warbound Leningrad in interruped his labours p by Yakov Perelman, Yakov Perelman
