About the book  What is the inside of the Earth like; what mysteries does its mantle conceal? What will the sensitive feelers of superdeep holes encounter there - boiling liquid magma or superhard matter, unimaginably high temperatures or cold approaching absolute zero? Science cannot as yet give the exact answers to these questions, though myriads of different hypotheses have been put forth. This book tells how scientists are ferreting out the secrets of the deeper zones of the Earth; its...

The day is not far off when a spaceship will land on one of the moon’s vast plains and the first earthmen will step out onto lunar soil. Scientists and engineers are hard at work preparing for that great day. Automatic probes have reconnoitred the path to the moon, photographed its unseen side, taken close-up pictures of the visible side and answered questions the gravitational and magnetic fields and radiation belts in outer space. Several rockets have hit the moon. The next step is a manned...

In this post, we will see the book  Fundamentals of Physics  by B. N. Ivanov. About the book: The book being of­fered by the author differs from other existing books on the subject in its nontraditional approach to the course of phys­ics. The principle underlying the preparation of this course can be summarized as follows:  "From atom to matter". What prompted the author to adopt this approach? In­deed, the creation of new materials with unusual mechani­cal, thermal,...
