the following topics: Motions of the Earth and moon, Motion and Gravity,
Renaissance Astronomy, Optical Telescopes, Space Exploration, Science and
Astronomy, The Solar System, Stellar Systems and Interstellar Matter, Galaxies
and the Universe.
Astronomy is the scientific study of the
universe as a whole, and of celestial bodies and the underlying physics
governing those bodies. This Wikibook introduces the reader to that tapestry and
the process that revealed it to humanity. It presents astronomy not only as a
field of knowledge, but also as a human endeavor in science.
This note covers the following topics: general data,
astronomy and astrophysics, radio astronomy, infrared astronomy, ultraviolet
astronomy, xray astronomy, gammaray astronomy, cosmic rays, earths atmosphere
and environment, relativity, atomic physics, electromagnetic radiation, plasma
physics, experimental astronomy and astrophysics, aeronautics and astronautics,
mathematics, statistics, radiation safety and astronomical catalogs.
