Death of Earth: A journey from the beginning to the end

Earth; a lump of rock traveling at 67,000 miles an hour in the corner of the Milky Way, our home galaxy. With upwards of 300 billion stars and 100 billion planets Earth is the only known planet to be home to life. It is so fascinating to think that complex carbon-based life could evolve from a single self-replicating molecule up to the complexity of the human body, with biological fascinations we cannot even begin to understand such as the human consciousness. All this on a small insignificant planet orbiting a star we call the sun... but how significant is Earth? Why is it that Earth is the only planet we know of with life and how did Earth come to be the perfect supporter of life? These are the questions that drive me, but the question that keeps me up at night is when will it end? When will Earth die and how? This is why we have wrote this book to instil a sense of wonder upon you, to make you question everything and appreciate how lucky we are to be alive, to use this time wisely and most of all, in the words of Carl Sagan, "preserve and cherish the pale blue dot" for future generations to live on and appreciate the wonder that is our home.

So how is it that life will cease to exist and Earth will be left a desolate rock drifting through space as lonely and inactive as its neighbouring planets? How will Earth die? These are the questions we hope to answer in our journey of the birth and death of our planet.

The Solar Eclipse of 2017: Where and How to Best View It

On Monday, August 21, 2017, there will be a solar eclipse of the sun visible from large parts of North America, from Oregon across to South Carolina. It will be the first total eclipse visible from mainland US since 1979, and there will not be a significant total eclipse in Europe until 2026. For many westerners, therefore, 2017 is the best opportunity for decades to view a solar eclipse.

Preparation is key to successfully observing an eclipse. This guide to the 2017 eclipse tells you the best places and exact times to see the eclipse (including detailed maps), as well as lots of tips on the best locations, safety equipment, and what to expect, minute by minute.

The awe-inspiring nature of experiencing a total eclipse cannot be underestimated. This invaluable book will help you make the most of those few precious minutes.

Space books for kids - a fun and fascinating way for young readers to discover more about the planets, dwarf planets and other fascinating objects in the Solar System.

This planet book for kids mixes facts, stunning photos and even Videos to encourage and bolster independent reading.

Accompanying webpage with video clips

This book provides fact after fact for information hungry children to tell family and friends, and even has an accompanying webpage with video clips giving a visual insight into the Solar System.

The video links mean children come back again and again, naturally developing their reading and learning skills (early kindle models don't support video but the safe website link is given).

Fascinating Facts Include...

The word 'planet' comes from the Greek word 'planetes', which means 'wandering star'.

The Solar System is only a small part of the spiral Milky Way galaxy. In fact, it is located on a small portion of just one minor arm of the galaxy called the Orion Arm.

More than 619,000 minor planets have been discovered in the Solar System.

The Sun accounts for more than 99% of the mass of the Solar System, about 300,000 times the mass of Earth.

Earth is the densest planet in the Solar System. It also has the strongest magnetic field and the fastest rotation period, which means it spins faster than any other planet.

The First Periodic Table for Elementary Particles

This is a significant breakthrough in elementary particle physics. This short ebook presents the complete table of 1024 elementary particles based on the QAM model as the first Periodic Table for Elementary Particles. A 1024-QAM table is presented that graphically displays how all elementary particles are related, similar to the Standard Periodic Table in chemistry. Interestingly, the math that describes QAM is simple and elegant. If we line up all of the particle masses in order, we find there are a number of "gaps." These are called the mass gaps, and they line up perfectly with 1024-QAM. QAM is very simple - it is the math used for wifi signals, and it perfectly fits the sequence of elementary particle masses. Numerous other particles are predicted using 1024-QAM. This paper provides compelling evidence that our universe is blinking at a high frequency (1.1 THz).

The Discovery of Parallel Universes

This short paper presents information into technology that has been used to move between two parallel universes. Described here are the possible technology characteristics of glowing orbs or balls of light, which have been photographed and filmed, all over the world and often near crop circles. By utilizing the blinking frequency of our universe, it is possible to move between universes. These orbs have been reported as glowing and/or pulsing and some appear to be 12 to 14 inches in diameter. The precise value for the blinking frequency of our universe, the Lighthouse Frequency, is estimated at 1.1 THz. Each reader must comprehend that our universe is literally blinking off and on, more than 1 trillion times every second.

For those unconvinced that our universe is blinking, please read "1024 Elementary Particles," which provides compelling mathematical evidence.
