Bill Yidumduma Harney is Senior Aboriginal Elder of the Wardaman community west of Katherine N.T. He is well-known through his 1996 book Born Under the Paperbark Tree, and the 2002 SBS film of his family and land, the Menngen White Cockatoo Country. The rock art of this area is famous for striped figures of the Lightning Brothers and other Spiritual Ancestors; and his tourist ventures give large numbers of people the chance to see these Dreaming of his people.
Stockman, land rights pioneer, story-teller par excellence and original painter, this custodian of sites as well as stories has always talked of the moon and stars On Top. In 1998 he asked Dr Hugh Cairns if he would write a book with him on his astronomy... Dark Sparklers is the result, and above all is an intriguing insight into a rather amazing modern Aboriginal Elder who has a cosmic view of life within his earthy realism.

Going boldly forth as a pioneer in the fledgling field of space archaeology, Dr Alice Gorman (aka Dr Space Junk) turns the common perception of archaeology as an exploration of the ancient on its head. Her captivating inquiry into the most modern and daring of technologies spanning some 60 years — a mere speck in cosmic terms — takes the reader on a journey which captures the relics of space forays and uncovers the cultural value of detritus all too readily dismissed as junk.
In this book, she takes a physical journey through the solar system and beyond, and a conceptual journey into human interactions with space. Her tools are artefacts, historical explorations, the occasional cocktail recipe, and the archaeologist's eye applied not only to the past, but the present and future as well.
Erudite and playful, Dr Space Junk reveals that space is not as empty as we might think. And that by looking up and studying space artefacts, we learn an awful lot about our own culture on earth. She makes us realise that objects from the past — the material culture produced by the Space Age and beyond — are so significant to us now because they remind us of what we might want to hold onto into the future.
A traditional way to read the temperature and predict the weather.
Storm Glass - Once used by seafarers to predict oncoming storms, the storm glass barometer came into general use in the early 1700's, and responds to atmospheric fluctuations to forecast the weather. Admiral Robert Fitzroy conducted a detailed study of this instrument between 1834 and 1836.
Galileo Thermometer - In 1593, Galileo Galilei discovered that the density of liquids reacts predictably to changes in temperature. He invented a device that allowed temperature variations to be measured.
$29.95Astronomers have long known that the Universe is expanding, but everything they could see indicated that gravity should be slowing this spread. Instead, it appears that the Universe is accelerating its expansion and that something stronger than gravity --dark energy -- is at work. In Einstein's Telescope Evalyn Gates, a University of Chicago astrophysicist, transports us to the edge of contemporary science to explore the revolutionary tool that unlocks the secrets of these little-understood cosmic constituents. Based on Einstein's theory of general relativity, gravitational lensing, or "Einstein's Telescope," is enabling new discoveries that are taking us toward the next revolution in scientific thinking -- one that may change forever our notions of where the Universe came from and where it is going.
