Im Jahr 1969 bilden Kenji und seine Freunde eine Jugendbande, die sich in Kornfeldern ein verstecktes Lager baut und Comic-Fantasien nachhängt, wie sie als tapfere Helden die Welt vor einer globalen Bedrohung retten. Die Natur der Bedrohung schreiben sie in einem ´´Buch der Prophezeiungen´´ nieder. In den späten Neunzigern sind die Freunde über alle Welt verstreut und haben wenig Kontakt miteinander. Doch dann treten genau jene Ereignisse ein, die sie sich vor zwanzig Jahren ausgedacht haben, und ein mysteriöser religiöser Kult macht von sich Reden. Wer verbirgt sich hinter der Maske seines Anführers, der nur ´´der Freund´´ genannt wird und das Erkennungszeichen der einstigen Kinderbande führt? Kenji spürt die Bande wieder auf. Ein Wettlauf gegen seine eigenen Ideen aus dem ´´Buch der Prophezeiungen´´ beginnt, während Tokio von Bomben, Seuchen und einem Riesenroboter verwüstet wird...

What motivates those few scientists who rise above their peers to achieve breakthrough discoveries? This book examines the careers of fifteen eminent scientists who achieved some of the most notable discoveries of the past century, providing an insider’s perspective on the history of twentieth century science based on these engaging personality profiles. They include: • Dan Shechtman, the 2011 Nobel laureate and discoverer of quasicrystals; • James D. Watson, the Nobel laureate and codiscoverer of the double helix structure of DNA; • Linus Pauling, the Nobel laureate remembered most for his work on the structure of proteins; • Edward Teller, a giant of the 20th century who accomplished breakthroughs in understanding of nuclear fusion; • George Gamow, a pioneering scientist who devised the initially ridiculed and now accepted Big Bang. In each case, the author has uncovered a singular personality characteristic, motivational factor, or circumstance that, in addition to their extraordinary drive and curiosity, led these scientists to make outstanding contributions. For example, Gertrude B. Elion, who discovered drugs that saved millions of lives, was motivated to find new medications after the deaths of her grandfather and later her fiancé. F. Sherwood Rowland, who stumbled upon the environmental harm caused by chlorofluorocarbons, eventually felt a moral imperative to become an environmental activist. Rosalyn Yalow, the codiscoverer of the radioimmunoassay always felt she had to prove herself in the face of prejudice against her as a woman. These and many more fascinating revelations make this a must-read for everyone who wants to know what traits and circumstances contribute to a person’s becoming the scientist who makes the big breakthrough.

The Age of Wonder: The Romantic Generation and ...

zzgl. 3,99 € Versand

The Age of Wonder is a colorful and utterly absorbing history of the men and women whose discoveries and inventions at the end of the eighteenth century gave birth to the Romantic Age of Science. When young Joseph Banks stepped onto a Tahitian beach in 1769, he hoped to discover Paradise. Inspired by the scientific ferment sweeping through Britain, the botanist had sailed with Captain Cook in search of new worlds. Other voyages of discovery—astronomical, chemical, poetical, philosophical—swiftly follow in Richard Holmes´s thrilling evocation of the second scientific revolution. Through the lives of William Herschel and his sister Caroline, who forever changed the public conception of the solar system; of Humphry Davy, whose near-suicidal gas experiments revolutionized chemistry; and of the great Romantic writers, from Mary Shelley to Coleridge and Keats, who were inspired by the scientific breakthroughs of their day, Holmes brings to life the era in which we first realized both the awe-inspiring and the frightening possibilities of science—an era whose consequences are with us still.

In many ways, twentieth-century America was the land of superheroes and science fiction. From Superman and the X-Men to the Fantastic Four these pop-culture juggernauts, with their powers and abilities far beyond those of mortal men, thrilled readers and audiences - and simultaneously embodied a host of our dreams and fears about modern life and the onrushing future. But that´s just scratching the surface, says Jeffrey J. Kripal. In Mutants and Mystics, he offers a brilliantly insightful account of how comic book heroes have helped their creators and fans alike explain a wealth of paranormal experiences ignored by mainstream science. Delving deeply into the work of major figures in the field - from Jack Kirby´s cosmic superhero sagas and Philip K. Dick´s futuristic head-trips to Alan Moore´s sex magic and Whitley Strieber´s communion with visitors - Kripal shows how creators turned to science fiction to convey the reality of the inexplicable and the paranormal they experienced in their lives. Expanded consciousness found its language in the metaphors of sci-fi-incredible powers, unprecedented mutations, vast intergalactic intelligences-and the themes from mythology and religion they drew from; the wildly creative work that followed caught the imaginations of millions. Moving deftly from Cold War science and Fredric Wertham´s anticomics crusade to gnostic revelation and alien abduction, Kripal spins out a hidden history of American culture, rich with mythical themes and shot through with an awareness that there are other realities beyond our everyday understanding. A bravura performance, beautifully illustrated and brimming over with incredible anecdotes, Mutants and Mystics is that rarest of things: a book that is guaranteed to broaden - and maybe even blow - your mind.
