New Year's Eve
2,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Aurora Award Finalist. The year is 1999. The world awaits a new millennium with a mixture of anticipation and dread. The fear stems from the much-hyped Y2K computer problem, the so-called millennium bug, which could cause uncorrected programs to fail all over the world. PCWare is the world's largest software company. John Dunne is team leader for the company's newest operating system, the first with a virtual reality user interface, complete with virtual human agents. But on Millennium Eve, John has problems. A Y2K bug has been discovered in the software...and John's virtual girlfriend has become far too real. Note: includes an afterword by the author and excerpts from many of his other stories Reviews: 'The story deals with the Y2k bug, and although that might seem dated now, the story is not, since its ideas continue to be relevant today.' - Bibliopolis

Winner of the Aurora Award for best novel of the year. Named best novel of the year by The Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction. MURDER IN SPACE Starcology Argo. A superstarship on a mission to a distant world. Controlled by a monumental computer named JASON, the Argo proceeds flawlessly . . . until death strikes its sleek decks with sudden and mysterious precision. Astrophysicist Diana Chandler is dead of radiation. Her body lies in the Argo's ramfield - where hydrogen ions are funneled into the engines. Chandler's death has been deemed suicide. But her ex-husband, Aaron Rossman, isn't so sure. As he probes further, he becomes certain that Diana's death is a matter of murder - and that the murderer is JASON! Now Rossman must face the unthinkable: why would an artificial intelligence conceive and execute that most heinous of human crimes? And if so, can a mortal mind take on a cunning computer . . . and survive? This edition includes a reading group guide. ROBERT J. SAWYER has won the Hugo, Nebula, John W. Campbell Memorial, Seiun, and Aurora Awards, all for best science fiction novel of the year. His novels include Hominids, Rollback, Wake, and FlashForward (basis for the TV series).

ggf. zzgl. Versand

The definitive guide to the modern body of spacecraftcharging knowledge--from first principles for the beginner tointermediate and advanced concepts The only book to blend the theoretical and practical aspects ofspacecraft charging, Guide to Mitigating Spacecraft ChargingEffects defines the environment that not only creates the aurora,but which also can have significant effects on spacecraft, such asdisruption of science measurements and solar arrays fromelectrostatic discharge (ESD). It describes in detail the physicsof the interaction phenomenon as well as how to constructspacecraft to enhance their survivability in the harsh environmentof space. Combining the authors' extensive experience in spacecraftcharging--and in their provision of design support to NASA,JPL, the commercial satellite market, and numerous otherprojects--this incredible book offers both a robust physicsbackground and practical advice for neophytes in the field andexperienced plasma physicists and spacecraft engineers. In addition to containing numerous equations, graphs, tables,references, and illustrations, Guide to Mitigating SpacecraftCharging Effects covers: * Solar cell technology, especially higher voltage arrays, and thenew design approaches that are appropriate for them * Information about the space plasma environment * New analytic computer codes to analyze spacecraft charging * Spacecraft anomalies and failures which emphasized designs thatare of greater importance than others

Celestial Delights
47,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Celestial Delights is essentially a 'TV Guide' for teh sky. This will be its third edition. This title, which has aggregated sales of about 20,000 copies to date in its two previous editions and has found a niche with skygazers, is much awaited. Through extensive graphics integrated with an eight-year-long calendar of sky events, it provides a look at 'don't miss' sky events, mostly for naked-eye and binocular observing. The book is organized by ease of observation - lunar phases and the brighter planets come first, while solar eclipses, the aurora, and comets come later. Celestial Delights also includes a hefty dose of sky lore, astronomical history, and clear overviews of current science. It provides a handy reference to upcoming naked-eye events, with information broken out in clear and simple diagrams and tables that are cross-referenced against a detailed almanac for each year covered. Most broad-ranging astronomy field guides focus on stars, constellations, and the deep sky, but tend to ignore planetary events, which are in by far the most widely observable aspects of the changing night sky. Celestial Delights puts a variety of information all in one place, presents it in a friendly way that does not require prior in-depth astronomical knowledge, but provides the context and historical background for understanding events that astronomical computer programs or web sites lack.

Everything started in the summer of 2014, in a simple and silent town of Dinalungan in the province of Aurora in the Philippines, when the Lazaro family established a beach resort business, named Magdalena Grand Beach and Farm Cottages. Only equipped with basic knowledge in running a business, Magdalena Lazaro, the owner, soon realized the importance of computer technology in today's businesses. Her son, the researcher, Erick Jones Lazaro, equipped with computer skills, commitment and motivation, aimed to develop an information system that computerizes the entire business operation of their family-owned business, and named as Magdalena Grand Beach and Farm Cottages Beach Resort Management System (MGBFC-BRMS), which is the final product of hardships faced by the researcher in making such information system a reality. This book is wholeheartedly published to serve as a basic guide and an inspiration for starting beach resort owners who aims putting-up a similar information system to their respective beach resort businesses. Most of all, the researcher hopes that this published work also serves as a reference for future researchers in the same field.
