A joint endeavor by a scientist and a photographer to explain the phenomena. It describes how to predict when auroras occur using simple physics alongside a collection of beautiful photos taken both from Earth and from space.
"This book is an authoritative account of Erwin Schrödingers in Magdalen College, Oxford in the 1930s drawn from many unpublished manuscripts, letters, and correspondences. It reveals in unprecedented detail the events leading up to Schrödingers sudden departure from Berlin in 1933, his arrival in Oxford and award of the Nobel Prize, his dramatic escape from the Nazis in Austria to return to Oxford, and his urgent flight from Belgium to Dublin at the start of the Second World War.
The two foundational concepts in physics - Quantum Theory and General Relativity - are incompatible with each other, and observations of the universe show that our theories are incomplete - at best. While physicists have tried to paper over this impasse by inventing dark matter and dark energy, they remain unobserved mysteries. Bruno Mansoulié uses simple language, insightful examples, and his personal experience as a working physicist to address these fundamental questions and reflect on how today's crises in physics might be solved.
