Das seit 2008 kontinuierlich expandierende Marvel Cinematic Universe gilt als das kommerziell erfolgreichste Filmfranchise der Gegenwart. Die hohe Erfolgsquote des mittlerweile zur Walt Disney Corporation gehörenden Marvel Studios hat eine Reihe von unterschiedlich weit fortgeschrittenen Nachahmungsbemühungen seitens Hollywood in Gang gesetzt, die Formel des Cinematic Universe auf ihre eigenen Filmfranchises zu übertragen. Was aber ist ein Cinematic Universe und wie unterscheidet es sich von einer herkömmlichen Fortsetzungsserie im Kino? Dieser Frage wird anhand einer Untersuchung des Marvel Cinematic Universe am Ende seiner zweiten "Phase" nachgegangen.

In ZORN stehen acht Menschen an Wendepunkten ihres Lebens, ihre Biographien berühren sich einen schicksalhaften Moment lang und sind von da an unlösbar ineinander verschränkt. Es ist ein einziger Tag, an dem jeder von ihnen in eine Ausnahmesituation gerät, die eine Entscheidung abfordert – die Wahrheit zu sagen oder sie zu verleugnen, sich zum Leben oder zum Tod zu bekennen, Stärke zu zeigen oder Schwäche zuzulassen. Im eigenen, kleinen Radius erproben Haratischwilis Figuren, wie es ist, sich nicht mehr abzufinden und einmal konsequent zu sein: Celia und Adam, die ihren Sohn vermissen; die erfolgreiche Fernsehproduzentin Martha; Rafael, der Terroristenjäger; die sterbenskranke Rula, die ihrem Kind eine bessere Zukunft bieten will; Oskar, der mit Butterfahrten zum "Verkäufer des Jahres" avanciert; sowie Anton und Antonia, ein junges Paar, die sich beide nicht zurecht finden in der Welt, wie sie ist, und die am Ende doch als einzige einen Entschluss fassen. RADIO UNIVERSE spielt in einer Nacht im August 2008 zur Zeit des Kaukasus-Konflikts. Private wie gesellschaftliche Krisen beherrschen diese Nacht, in der in Deutschland Schnee fällt, mitten im Sommer, und in der in Georgien unvermittelt Bomben fallen. Sechs einsame Figuren begleitet Haratischwili durch die Nacht: an verschiedenen Orten, mit unterschiedlichen Geschichten. Und doch sind sie alle miteinander verbunden, nicht zuletzt dank Jo, dem Radiomoderator, dessen Sendung die Grenzen von Ort und Zeit zu überwinden scheint.

.".. is a worthwhile elementary treatment of the cosmology of the early Universe written with a liveliness and simplicity that will surely encourage students to pursue the subject further.'' John D Barrow Nature, 1989 .".. a superb guide to what is known about cosmology....The authors also leave you with a sense of anticipation and excitement.'' David Hughes New Scientist, 1989 "The book is well written and interesting, particularly in its use of Chinese stories throughout ... The book contains all the standard material found in such texts. The chapters on the thermodynamics of the Universe are particularly good ... this is a first-rate book of its genre and is heartily recommended." Kenneth Dunn Mathematical Reviews, 1993 "The best popular account of the science that explains how the universe can be friendly to life is a book, 'Creation of the Universe', by the Chinese astronomers, Fang Li Zhi and Li Shu Xian. The book was translated into English and published by World Scientific Publishing in 1989. Fang Li Zhi is the famous dissident astronomer now living in exile in the United States. I particularly recommend Chapter 6, with the title 'How Order Was Born of Chaos'. This tells the same story that I am telling you today, but with more detail and more depth."

Due to its specific chemical and physical properties, water is essential for life on Earth. And it is assumed that this would be the case for extraterrestrial life as well. Therefore it is important to investigate where water can be found in the Universe. Although there are places that are completely dry, places where the last rainfall happened probably several 100 million years ago, surprisingly this substance is quite omnipresent. In the outer solar system the large satellites of Jupiter and Saturn are covered by a thick layer of ice that could be hiding a liquid ocean below. This of course brings up the question of whether the recently detected extrasolar planets could have some water on their surfaces and how we can detect this. Water molecules are also found in interstellar gas and dust clouds. This book begins with an introductory chapter reviewing the physical and chemical properties of water. Then it illuminates the apparent connection between water and life. This is followed by chapters dealing with our current knowledge of water in the solar system, followed by a discussion concerning the potential presence and possible detection of water on exoplanets. The signature of water in interstellar space and stars are reviewed before the origin of water in the Universe is finally discussed. The book ends with an appendix on detection methods, satellite missions and astrophysical concepts touched upon in the main parts of the book. The search for water in the Universe is related to the search for extraterrestrial life and is of fundamental importance for astrophysics, astrobiology and other related topics. This book therefore addresses students and researchers in these fields.

Book 1 in the New York Times bestselling trilogy, perfect for fans of Battlestar Gallactica and Passengers! WHAT DOES IT TAKE TO SURVIVE ABOARD A SPACESHIP FUELED BY LIES? Amy is a cryogenically frozen passenger aboard the spaceship Godspeed. She has left her boyfriend, friends--and planet--behind to join her parents as a member of Project Ark Ship. Amy and her parents believe they will wake on a new planet, Centauri-Earth, three hundred years in the future. But fifty years before Godspeed's scheduled landing, cryo chamber 42 is mysteriously unplugged, and Amy is violently woken from her frozen slumber. Someone tried to murder her. Now, Amy is caught inside an enclosed world where nothing makes sense. Godspeed's 2,312 passengers have forfeited all control to Eldest, a tyrannical and frightening leader. And Elder, Eldest's rebellious teenage heir, is both fascinated with Amy and eager to discover whether he has what it takes to lead. Amy desperately wants to trust Elder. But should she put her faith in a boy who has never seen life outside the ship's cold metal walls? All Amy knows is that she and Elder must race to unlock Godspeed's hidden secrets before whoever woke her tries to kill again.

The study of the origin and evolution of the universe encompasses many of the most fascinating questions in science. What is our place in the universe? How did everything in it get started, from galaxies and stars, to planets and people? And what does the future hold, for our star, and our universe? Recently, scientists have made remarkable advances in providing concrete answers to these profound questions. The new technologies of observational astronomy, with its ground- and space-based gamma-ray, X-ray, ultraviolet, infrared and radio telescopes, is truly producing a new golden age of discovery. This book presents the excitement of these new discoveries in the larger context of cosmic evolution. The distinguished contributors are leading researchers at the cutting edge of these fields, and they also excel in explaining these subjects to the broader public. They offer the latest insights into these rapidly advancing fields, covering the origin and evolution of the universe, the chemical elements, galaxies, the evolution of stars, planets, and biological life. Essential physical concepts are clearly and carefully explained at the introductory college level. Related concepts from chemistry, geology, and biology are organized and integrated into the discussions. An extensive glossary is provided, and mathematical detail has been deliberately kept simple, to make the chapters accessible to anyone with an appreciation of science. The result is stimulating exploration of the frontiers of modern science that will intrigue both amateurs and professionals.

The task given to the authors of the essays in this collection-3 scholars from 3 different continents-was to examine the phenomenon of intelligence. Human and animal intelligence is known to us. Extra-terrestrial intelligence and artificial intelligence are now serious topics for debate and discussion. The possibilities of extra-terrestrial intelligence and yet-to-be developed forms of artificial intelligence pose questions about how intelligent animals are and what the implications are for our concept of God and the salvific work of Christ. Contributors are: Anna Foerst (USA), John Puddefoot (UK) and Mark Worthing (Australia).
