9781421403519: Nucleus: A Trip into the Heart of Matter

The discovery of the nucleus transformed the past century and will revolutionize this one. Nuclear physics is one of the most exciting―and useful―branches of science. In medicine, it helps save lives through innovative medical technologies, such as the MRI, and in nuclear astrophysics, state-of-the-art theoretical and computer models account for how stars shine and describe how the chemical elements in the universe were formed.

Now in its second edition, Nucleus tells the story of the nucleus from the early experimental work of the quiet New Zealander Lord Rutherford to the huge atom-smashing machines of today and beyond. Thoroughly revised and updated, the book includes the most current information on the radio dating of Earth and other planets in the Solar System, heavy-ion therapies, quark-gluon plasma and its relevance to black holes, and clarification of ab initio calculations of atomic nuclei.

Lavishly illustrated and with lively prose and captivating details, this book unravels the scientific mysteries that surround the subject of the nucleus. Anyone with even a passing interest in science will delight in this guide to the nuclear age.

Review:

"Beautifully produced. In every lavishly illustrated page, every fascinating aside (did you know, for instance, that there are more atoms in a single glass of water than there are glasses of water in all the earth's oceans?) the book demonstrates the central role of nuclear physics in our exploration of nature."

(Sesame)

"In this competently written, well-illustrated, and attractively composed book, the history of nuclear physics is explained in a clear but sophisticated manner... They have done a very good job presenting the material; illustrations, figures, and photographs are superior in quality to other available works."

(Choice)

"The authors have produced an attractive book... The relaxed, informal style is easy on the reader and the story is told in a way I find appealing."

(Nuclear Physics Review)

"A valiant attempt to convey the history, subject matter, and applications of subatomic research, and then place them in the context of astronomy... Anyone with an interest in the subject matter will want to read Nucleus several times, and the authors make the experience enjoyable."

(Astronomy)
