In the summer a particular flower, the Cosmos Bipinnatus always pops up in our garden. We planted it many years ago and since then they keep on returning every summer. This summer I figured it’s about time I created a class that revolves around the Cosmos Bipinnatus. In this class we’re going to draw and paint this flower and thankfully with my help that by far isn’t as complicated as the latin names flowers do have.

Chandra’s Cosmos Dark Matter, Black Holes, and Other Wonders Revealed by NASA’s Premier X-Ray Observatory


Wallace H. Tucker, "Chandra’s Cosmos: Dark Matter, Black Holes, and Other Wonders Revealed by NASA’s Premier X-Ray Observatory"
English | 2017 | ISBN: 1588345874, 158834651X | EPUB | pages: 272 | 142.9 mb
On July 23, 1999, the Chandra X-Ray Observatory, the most powerful X-ray telescope ever built, was launched aboard the space shuttle Columbia. Since then, Chandra has given us a view of the universe that is largely hidden from telescopes sensitive only to visible light. In Chandra’s Cosmos, the Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory’s Chandra science spokesperson Wallace H. Tucker uses a series of short, connected stories to describe the telescope’s exploration of the hot, high-energy face of the universe. The book is organized in three parts: "The Big," covering the cosmic web, dark energy, dark matter, and massive clusters of galaxies; "The Bad," exploring neutron stars, stellar black holes, and supermassive black holes; and "The Beautiful," discussing stars, exoplanets, and life.

Cross and Cosmos A Theology of Difficult Glory


John D. Caputo, "Cross and Cosmos: A Theology of Difficult Glory"
English | 2019 | pages: 306 | ISBN: 0253043123, 0253043115 | EPUB | 0,5 mb
John D. Caputo stretches his project as a radical theologian to new limits in this groundbreaking book. Mapping out his summative theological position, he identifies with Martin Luther to take on notions of the hidden god, the theology of the cross, confessional theology, and natural theology. Caputo also confronts the dark side of the cross with its correlation to lynching and racial and sexual discrimination. Caputo is clear that he is not writing as any kind of orthodox Lutheran but is instead engaging with a radical view of theology, cosmology, and poetics of the cross. Readers will recognize Caputo’s signature themes―hermeneutics, deconstruction, weakness, and the call―as well as his unique voice as he writes about moral life and our strivings for joy against contemporary society and politics.

Wonders of the Cosmos


Wonders of the Cosmos by Scientific American Editors
English | July 15th, 2022 | ISBN: 9781250121608 | 180 pages | True EPUB | 3.71 MB
"Cosmos" comes from a Greek word for an orderly and systematic universe. In this eBook, we present the most riveting discoveries and mind-bending ideas about our cosmic home, from what we know of the origins of the universe and the cartography of space to the most bizarre phenomena and the search for life. Discussions include the possibility that the big bang was the consequence of a black hole in a fourth spatial dimension, that cosmic ripples created infinite universes, that entangled black holes could act as wormhole-like passageways through space and much more.

Cosmos, Liturgy, and the Arts in the Twelfth Century Hildegard’s Illuminated Scivias


English | 2022 | ISBN: 1512823074 | 393 pages | True PDF EPUB | 267.84 MB
In Cosmos, Liturgy, and the Arts in the Twelfth Century , Margot E. Fassler takes readers into the rich, complex world of Hildegard of Bingen’s Scivias (meaning “Know the ways”) to explore how medieval thinkers understood and imagined the universe. Hildegard, renowned for her contributions to theology, music, literature, and art, developed unique methods for integrating these forms of thought and expression into a complete vision of the cosmos and of the human journey. Scivias was Hildegard’s first major theological work and the only one of her writings that was both illuminated and copied by scribes from her monastery during her lifetime. It contains not just religious visions and theological commentary, but also a shortened version of Hildegard’s play Ordo virtutum (“Play of the virtues”), plus the texts of fourteen musical compositions.

Extraterrestrial Altruism Evolution and Ethics in the Cosmos


Extraterrestrial Altruism: Evolution and Ethics in the Cosmos By Albert A. Harrison (auth.), Douglas A. Vakoch (eds.)
2014 | 329 Pages | ISBN: 3642377491 | PDF | 4 MB
Extraterrestrial Altruism examines a basic assumption of the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence (SETI): that extraterrestrials will be transmitting messages to us for our benefit. This question of whether extraterrestrials will be altruistic has become increasingly important in recent years as SETI scientists have begun contemplating transmissions from Earth to make contact.Technological civilizations that transmit signals for the benefit of others, but with no immediate gain for themselves, certainly seem to be altruistic. But does this make biological sense? Should we expect altruism to evolve throughout the cosmos, or is this only wishful thinking? Is it dangerous to send messages to other worlds, as Stephen Hawking has suggested, or might humankind benefit from an exchange with intelligence elsewhere in the galaxy? Would extraterrestrial societies be based on different ethical principles, or would we see commonalities with Earthly notions of morality? Extraterrestrial Altruism explores these and related questions about the motivations of civilizations beyond Earth, providing new insights that are critical for SETI.Chapters are authored by leading scholars from diverse disciplines-anthropology, astronomy, biology, chemistry, computer science, cosmology, engineering, history of science, law, philosophy, psychology, public policy, and sociology. The book is carefully edited by Douglas Vakoch, Director of Interstellar Message Composition at the SETI Institute and professor of clinical psychology at the California Institute of Integral Studies. The Foreword is by Frank Drake.This interdisciplinary book will benefit everybody trying to understand whether evolution and ethics are unique to Earth, or whether they are built into the fabric of the universe.
