Publisher: Springer-Verlag Gmbh Nov 2012

Publication Date: 2012

Binding: Buch

Book Condition: Neu

Description:

Neuware - A trio of editors [Professors from Austria, Germany and Israel] present Life on Earth and other Planetary Bodies. The contributors are from twenty various countries and present their research on life here as well as the possibility for extraterrestrial life. This volume covers concepts such as life's origin, hypothesis of Panspermia and of life possibility in the Cosmos. The topic of extraterrestrial life is currently 'hot' and the object of several congresses and conferences. While the diversity of 'normal' biota is well known, life on the edge of the extremophiles is more limited and less distributed. Other subjects discussed are Astrobiology with the frozen worlds of Mars, Europa and Titan where extant or extinct microbial life may exist in subsurface oceans; conditions on icy Mars with its saline, alkaline, and liquid water which has been recently discovered; chances of habitable Earth-like [or the terrestrial analogues] exoplanets; and SETI's search for extraterrestrial Intelligence. 531 pp. Englisch.

Review:

From the reviews:

?A collection of articles about life, habitability and astrobiology, that should find a place on everyone?s reading-list who?s interested in the possibility of extraterrestrial life and the quickly evolving field of astrobiology and search for exoplanets and naturally also SETI. ? it?s definitely a fascinating book. The best part about the book might be that you get to know some of the objects of the Solar system a lot more from the habitability aspect.? (Kadri Tinn, AstroMadness.com, March, 2014)

?Rich in subject matter, this book is exceptionally broad in its coverage of the evolutionary boundary between inorganic and organic matter. ? Figures, diagrams, and color photos are well chosen. ? Extensive references follow each chapter. This book will appeal to astronomers, chemists, and biologists as well as practicing astrobiologists who wish to explore the current extent of research and thinking in this new field. Summing Up: Recommended. Upper-division undergraduates and above.? (W. E. Howard III, Choice, Vol. 50 (9), May, 2013)
