They describe modern instruments used in astronomy and the relations between astronomy and technology, industry, politics and philosophy.

About this title

Synopsis:

Astronomy is by nature an interdisciplinary activity: it involves mathematics, physics, chemistry and biology. Astronomers use (and often develop) the latest technology, the fastest computers and the most refined software. In this book twenty-two leading scientists from nine countries talk about how astronomy interacts with these other sciences. They describe modern instruments used in astronomy and the relations between astronomy and technology, industry, politics and philosophy. They also discuss what it means to be an astronomer, the history of astronomy, and the place of astronomy in society today.

Review:

From the reviews:

“Lasota (Paris Institute of Astrophysics, France) has compiled a very eclectic and engaging mix of essays on astronomy-related topics. ... This is a unique book that fills a niche rarely addressed by other works. ... anyone with an interest in astronomy will find it a good read. Summing Up: Recommended. All levels/libraries.” (T. D. Oswalt, Choice, Vol. 49 (9), May, 2012)

Aus den Rezensionen:

 “... Ein Buch über Interdisziplinarität regt dazu an, selbst interdisziplinärer zu denken. Wer bereit ist, diesen mühsamen Weg zu gehen und sich nicht nur für astronomische Ergebnisse, sondern auch für die Astronomie und ihre Vernetzungen selbst interessiert, sollte dieses Buch lesen. Es lohnt sich.“ (MIRCO SANER, in: Sterne und Weltraum, 2012, Issue 6, S. 104 f.)
