This title helps you find out all about astronomy and stargazing: how to spot constellations, how the universe is expanding, and what the planets in our solar system are like. It includes 13 fantastic projects that help you discover things for yourself: make a telescope, mount binoculars on a tripod, photograph the stars, and create a model of the night sky. Over 240 images include step-by-step photographs and explanatory illustrations. It is ideal for home or school use for ages 8 to 12. This amazing hands-on book tells you exactly what to look for in the night sky. It will teach you all about outer space and how to become a proper stargazer yourself, with projects such as making a sundial and how to watch the Moon. Information sections take you through the different topics in astronomy: discover the patterns of the stars, the southern and northern constellations, how the stars change with the seasons, the movements of the Sun and Earth, and all about giant planets, meteors and comets. The 13 practical and fun projects help you find out things for yourself: try an experiment with friends to show the distances of outer space or the movements of the Moon, discover gravity, and use a balloon to see how the universe expands! More than 240 photographs and illustrations make everything easy to follow, and bring the heavens to life.


Millimetre And Submillimetre Astronomy

The millimetre and submillimetre spectral region (300 to 3000 Ilm or 1000 to 100 GHz) was until recently one of the few spectral regimes not fully opened up for astronomical studies. Thanks both to improvements in detectors and receivers and to the construction of large telescopes at high altitude sites this situation is improving very rapidly. Three major telescopes have been built recently and are coming into operation during 1987 and 1988, namely the 15m James Clerk Maxwell Telescope (JCMT) and the lOAm Caltech Submillimetre Observatory (CSO) telescope, both located on Mauna Kea, Hawaii, and the 15 m Swedish -ESO telescope (SEST) in Chile. Because a very wide range of astronomical problems can be tackled with these major new facilities there is a great deal of interest from the many potential new users anxious to become familiar with this rapidly developing field. During 1986 it became clear to British and Dutch astronomers involved in planning the commissioning and operation of the JCMT, that a summer school in this field would greatly benefit the potential and actual JCMT user community. With financial support from the SERC and supplemented by a grant from the ZWO, the Summer School on 'Millimetre and Submillimetre Astronomy' was held at Stirling University from June 21 to 27, 1987.
