    Lecture 8 - Introduction to Black Holes Overview. The second half of the course begins, focusing on black holes and relativity. In introducing black holes, Professor Bailyn offers a definition, talks about how their existence is detected, and explains why (unlike in the case with exoplanets where Newtonian physics was applied) Einstein’s Theory of Relativity is now required when studying. Lecture 1: Introduction to Astronomy Astronomical Coordinate Systems: Astronomers base their measurement of positions of objects on the concept of the celestial sphere upon which all objects are assumed to lie regardless of their true distances. The celestial poles and equator are the projections of the Earth's poles and equator onto the sky.

      A nice added touch, in a pouch at the back of the book, is a CD-ROM with more than 1, Earth and Moon images from the mission—the familiar ones plus many more from the archives. This book is one of a series focused on the Moon landing missions, all published in Canada by Apogee Press of Burlington, Ontario.   Buy Astronomy Today on FREE SHIPPING on qualified orders Astronomy Today: Chaisson, Eric, McMillan, Steve: : Books Skip to main content.

    A Compendious System of Astronomy, in a Course of Familiar Lectures. London: J. Wallis, 8° ( x mm). Engraved frontispiece by W. Nutter after S. Shelly, 17 plates (most plates detached, a few brown spots, stitching weak). Contemporary boards, uncut (lacking spine, soiled). The price for Radio Astronomy is cheaper than most books and the lectures are up-to-date. One thing that sets these lectures apart from contemporary radio astronomy books is the decent coverage of radio frequencies below 1 GHz, including Jupiter radio emissions in the HF band, something most modern radio astronomy books completely fail to mention.
