How old is our Universe? At what speed is our Universe expanding? Is our universe flat or curved? How is the hierarchical structure of the present Universe formed? The purpose of IAU Symposium 183 on the Cosmological Parameters and the Evolution of the Universe was to encourage a state-of-the-art discussion and assessment of cosmology by putting together the latest observational data and theoretical ideas on the evolution of the universe and cosmological parameters. In this volume, excellent reviews on these subjects by distinguished scientists are included. The first article by M.S. Longair, `Cosmological Parameters and the Evolution of the Universe: Progress and Prospect', is a magnificent general review which can be understood by non-specialists. The other reviews include Hubble Constants (W.L. Freedman, G.A. Tammann), Microwave Background Radiation (R.B. Partridge, N. Sugiyama), Galaxy Formation and Evolution (R.S. Ellis) and Alternative Cosmological Models (J.V. Narlikar). In addition to the reviews, recent observational and theoretical developments by outstanding active scientists are included.

.".. 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."

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.

Ultimate Explanations of the Universe

We humans are collectively driven by a powerful - yet not fully explained - instinct to understand. We would like to see everything established, proven, laid bare. The more important an issue, the more we desire to see it clarified, stripped of all secrets, all shades of gray. What could be more important than to understand the Universe and ourselves as a part of it? To find a window onto our origin and our destiny? This book examines how far our modern cosmological theories - with their sometimes audacious models, such as inflation, cyclic histories, quantum creation, parallel universes - can take us towards answering these questions. Can such theories lead us to ultimate truths, leaving nothing unexplained? Last, but not least, Heller addresses the thorny problem of why and whether we should expect to find theories with all-encompassing explicative power.

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.

Out of our tendency to believe in something bigger than ourselves, we created an all-powerful God, this God is supposed to be capable of supplying all of our needs. It is considered here that this God in the Bible is a myth handed down through fables, folklores and allegories. There is no supernatural God, only a Balance in the Universe, this balance keeps the Universe in perfect motion, and supplies all the necessary resources needed for this magnificient creation to continue. We will reach our ultimate development when we learn to believe and trust in each other.
