THE RESTLESS SUN., Wentzel, Donat G.
7 Wentzel, Donat G. THE RESTLESS SUN.
Smithsonian Institution Press, Washington, D.C., 1989, first edition. 
279 pp, large 8vo (9 1/4" H), hard cover in dust jacket. ISBN 0874749824 B&w photographs, drawings, graphs, colour plates. "(N)oted astronomer and teacher Donat G. Wentzel presents an informative portrait of our closest star. Our Sun exhibits am azing physical properties: the seething core, where enormous pressure fires the nuclear reactions that radiate light and heat; the surface layers, where fiery gases are in constant motion (except in the relative 'peace' of dark sunspots); an d t h e c o rona, which reaches temperatures of more than one million degrees Fahrenheit. Going beyond the physical description, Wentzel gives the reader a broad perspective on contemporary solar science. Can we predict how changes in the Sun wi ll in fl ue n ce l ife on earth? Is our Sun a 'typical' star? Can our investigation of the Sun enrich our understanding of more distant stars and of cosmology? Finally, Wentzel probes the need to weigh the benefits of solar science against the cos t s. Ne w t ec hno log y may soon let us explore more deeply the fiery interiors of the Sun and other stars, answering questions that are now beyond our grasp. Most projects require extensive advance planning and may take decades to complete. How c an we b e su re that suc h projects are worthwhile? Written for the popular science reader, (this book) will appeal to everyone intrigued by the solar system." Previous owner's name on front pastedown, light wrinkling and small bump at to p/bot tom of rear hing e, a few tiny scuff marks on rear cover. Dust jacket has wrinkling at top/bottom of spine, flap-folds and front panel; slight fading to spine color; a few tiny edge tears and dints, area of dampness mark/wrinkle at top e dge of rea r pa nel.
