From humankind's early attempts to comprehend Earth's place in the solar system, to astronomers' exploration of the Milky Way galaxy and the realm of the nebulae beyond, to the detection of the primordial fluctuations of energy from which all subsequent structure developed, this book explains the physics and the history of how the current model of our universe arose and has passed every test hurled at it by the skeptics. Throughout this rich story, an essential theme is emphasized: how three aspects of rational inquiry--the application of direct measurement and observation, the introduction of mathematical modeling, and the requirement that hypotheses should be testable and verifiable--guide scientific progress and underpin our modern cosmological paradigm.
The story is far from complete, however, as scientists confront the mysteries of the ultimate causes of cosmic structure formation and the real nature and origin of dark matter and dark energy
2013 Nobel Prize winners Peter Higgs & Francois Englert
The 2013 Nobel Prize in Physics has been awarded to Peter W. Higgs (University of Edingburgh) and Francois Englert (Université Libre de Bruxelles) “for the theoretical discovery of a mechanism that contributes to our understanding of the origin of mass of subatomic particles, and which recently was confirmed through the discovery of the predicted fundamental particle, by the ATLAS and CMS experiments at CERN’s Large Hadron Collider."
To help the public understand the context of this remarkable theory, the American Institute of Physics (AIP) has compiled a Physics Nobel Prize Resources page featuring relevant scientific papers and articles, quotes from experts, multimedia, and other resources.
This guide is meant for those who are pursuing research-level work in astrophysics or astronomy at UNH, and for those who are strongly interested in these areas. It includes information to direct you to resources for doing literature searches,finding library materials (and staff who can help!), getting help with writing, and professional directions in these fields.
Instructions for Off-Campus Access
VPN (https://vpn.unh.edu) provides excellent access; it makes any link to a resources provided by the UNH Library accessible through your computer. If you do not use VPN, you may still access resources from off-campus. To do this, you must get to the resource via the UNH Library Catalog, UNH Library Database List and/or UNH Fulltext Journal List. When you click on the UNH Library link to an online resource, you will be prompted to put in your IT ID. After doing so, you will be connected to that resource.
