From spotting solar flares on the Sun to exploring objects at the edge of the icy Oort Cloud, this fun, action-packed title leaves no question unanswered and no meteorite unturned.Aderin-Pocock, MaggieDr Maggie Aderin-Pocock is a space scientist whose passion is presenting science to a general audience and demonstrating that you 'don't need a brain the size of a small planet' to understand, participate in and enjoy science.Maggie is committed to inspiring new generations of astronauts, engineers and scientists through her 'Tours of the Universe'. She shares the wonders of space, and has given these talks to over 60,000 people across the globe. Her programme Do We Really Need the Moon? (BBC 2), which explored our intimate relationship with the moon, showed just that. The programme earned Maggie the Talkback Thames new talent award at the prestigious Women in Film and TV Awards in December 2011. She went on to present a follow up Do We Really Need Satellites? (also BBC 2) and was one of the Scientists on Channel 4's Brave New World as well as regular stints on The One Show. She is currently presenting the new series of The Sky At Night on BBC 4 and Mini Stargazing for CBeebies. In 2009, Maggie was appointed an MBE for her services to science and education.

The Space Marines are in the Oort Cloud, racing in their insertion pods to the frozen planetoid of Tyche. Alone in the dark, outnumbered and outgunned by the cyborgs waiting for them on the methane-ice surface, the hour of desperation has arrived. This novella is set in the Doom Star series. 1.

Sometimes defending those you love means risking everything and attempting the most dangerous task in the universe: making a planetary assault against a heavily entrenched enemy. It's grim and always ugly. But as long as men refuse to bow their heads to conquerors, they will take the fight to the enemy or die trying. Three masters of military science fiction have come together to tell harrowing tales of high-tech mayhem. In BV Larson's "An Army of One" the Macros of the Star Force series invade from the skies, forcing a nanotized assassin into a deadly decision. David VanDyke's "First Conquest" tells of a bitter battle as EarthFleet smashes into an alien star system in a desperate first strike to save humanity. Vaughn Heppner's Space Marines of the Doom Star series race to the Oort Cloud in "Cyborgs!" For them, the hour of desperation has arrived.Planetary Assault drips of glorious victories and grim defeats as humanity forces its way into the galaxy through sheer fighting ability. Despite their opponents, mankind will not be denied. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Mark Boyett. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/adbl/015051/bk_adbl_015051_sample.mp3.

The solar system is full of interesting objects, and new surprises are discovered everyday by many astronomic agencies and institutes. Solar wind is one of many amazing objects related to the solar system. Solar wind is a stream containing charged particles. It flows outwards from the sun. With its flow, it leaves behind a bubble-like region in interstellar medium. This region is referred as heliosphere. The flow of solar wind faces a point at which both interstellar and solar wind possess the same pressure. This point falls usually at the edge of scattered discs. If we go further than this, there comes the Oort cloud. It is possibly the source of long period comets. Its distance is yet to be figured out. It is possible that it may be located thousands of times further than where the heliosphere is located. Our galaxy (in which our solar system is located) is named Milky Way. In Milky Way, our solar system is located in Orion Arm that is 26,000 light-years from center point of our galaxy. One light year is equal to the distance which a light ray can cross in a year. 1.
