  • Modern Robotics - Building Versatile Machines
    English | 2006-08-01 | ISBN: 0816057451 | 208 pages | PDF | 5.28MB


    Modern Robotics, like others in the series, has an interesting introduction, in this case evoking the idea of historic "robots," including the "golem," elaborate mechanical automatons, and science fiction robots of the early twentieth century. At that time, Norbert Weiner defined the new science of cybernetics and succeeding scientists adapted and expanded his ideas into the world of industry. New robots have appeared regularly since then, and are used for a variety of purposes, including explorations (like the Mars rovers). Researchers like Kevin Warwick in England are attempting to utilize "bionic" implants to assist handicapped humans, and the search continues for true robotic intelligence and a "universal" robot. Overall these carefully researched and well-presented books should be a worthwhile addition to the high schoolcollection.

  • Distant Worlds - Milestones in Planetary Exploration
    English | 2010 | ISBN: 0387402128 | 325 pages | PDF | 39.25 MB


    This book recounts the epic saga of how we as human beings have come to understand the Solar System. The story of our exploration of the heavens, Peter Bond reminds us, began thousands of years ago, with the naked-eye observations of the earliest scientists and philosophers. Over the centuries, as our knowledge and understanding inexorably broadened and deepened, we faltered many times, frequently labored under misconceptions, and faced seemingly insurmountable obstacles to understanding. Yet, despite overwhelming obstacles, a combination of determined observers, brilliant thinkers, courageous explorers, scientists and engineers has brought us, particularly over the last five decades, into a second great age of human discovery.
