    The Physics of Star Trek is a non-fiction book by the theoretical physicist Lawrence M. Krauss. It is the third book by Krauss, who later wrote a followup titled Beyond Star Trek in Krauss discusses the physics involved in various concepts and objects described in the Star Trek universe. He investigates the possibility of such things Author: Lawrence M. Krauss, Stephen . The physics of stars. [A C Phillips] -- This book provides a concise, self-contained account of how key aspects of stellar structure, evolution and nucleosynthesis can be understood in terms of fundamental physics.

    The Physics of Stars, Second Edition, is a concise introduction to the properties of stellar interiors and consequently the structure and evolution of stars. Strongly emphasising the basic physics, simple and uncomplicated theoretical models are used to illustrate clearly the connections between fundamental physics and stellar properties. COVID Resources.

Who amongst us has not at one time or another wondered while watching Star Trek, either when it first aired, ro in watching re-runs, if all of that magic might someday really come to fruition/5(). The Physics of Stars Wars is a fun book that takes a topic from Stars Wars and then compares it to real life.

It covers a wide range of topics in the sciences and technology, and would probably be more appropriately titled as The Science of Stars Wars.

Recommended for both Stars Wars and science buffs/5. Bistromaths: "The Physics of Star Trek" by Lawrence M. Krauss The curvature of spacetime is determined by the distribution of matter and energy in the universe, but this distribution is in turn governed by the curvature of space.

It is like the chicken and the egg. Which was there first?/5. This book summarizes the recent progress in the physics and astrophysics of neutron stars.

It provides an overview of neutron star formation in supernovae, pulsars, equations of state of neutron stars, super dense matter, gravitational wave emission and alternative theories of gravity. Following the hugely successful The Science Book and The Math Book comes a richly illustrated chronology of physics, containing short, entertaining, and thought-provoking entries.

In addition to exploring such engaging topics as dark energy, parallel universes, the Doppler effect, the God particle, and Maxwell's demon, the book's timeline extends back billions of years to Cited by: 4. Like the Physics of Star Trek, the author cleverly teaches traditional physics while evaluating comic book super heroes relating what is and what is not possible according to the theories of basic physics/5().

"The Physics of Star Trek is a fun, readable little book by an eminent physicist that boldly goes where few serious scientists have ever gone before."--Tampa Tribune "A fascinating way to learn more about physics."--St.

Petersburg Times "One of the year's best gifts for a science-fiction fan."--Cleveland Plain Dealer/5(). As mentioned, The Physics of Star Trek was a good light read, so I'll give it three stars for its interesting concept, but no more, since I had to wade through several chapters of the almost boilerplate physics that accompanies almost any popular-level physics book/5().
