El universo apesta

3

A primera vista, el universo no es un sitio elegante. En realidad, huele raro, suena raro y está más vacío que el tanque de gasolina poco antes de la quincena. Casi en todos lados podríamos recibir radiaciones letales, quedarnos sin aire, congelarnos o rostizarnos, y eso sucede hasta en los lugares más bonitos. En otras palabras: El universo "apesta".

De manera entretenida, los autores nos guían a través de los distintos fenómenos que se dan en el espacio y el universo. Mercurio es chico y no digno de visitarse. Venus es caluroso y sulfuroso. Júpiter es tormentoso y lleno de diamantes. Las explicaciones científicas acerca de los agujeros negros, sistemas solares, galaxias lejanas, asteroides y materia oscura son ilustradas en conjunto con nuestras creencias sobre lobos esteparios, troyanos, vampiros y zombis en el espacio.

¿Cuántos secuestros de personas por extraterrestres hay por año? ¿Qué tiene que ver una langosta con física cuántica? ¿Por qué el jugo de tomate sabe diferente en un avión? Al final del libro, serás capaz de decidir con detalle dónde pasar tus próximas vacaciones espaciales, sabrás dónde firmar la petición en contra de las bacterias extraterrestres y cuáles son los deseos que piden las estrellas fugaces cuando ven a un ser humano. En definitiva, estarás al tanto de cómo se destruirá el universo.

Nuclear astrophysics as it stands today is a fascinating science. Even though, compared to other scientific fields, it is a young discipline which has developed only in this century, it has answered many questions concerning the under standing of our cosmos. One of these great achievements was the concept of nucleosynthesis, the creation of the elements in the early universe in interstellar matter and in stars. Nuclear astrophysics has continued, to solve many riddles of the evolution of the myriads of stars in our cosmos. This review volume attempts to provide an overview of the current status of nuclear astrophysics. Special emphasis is given to the interdisciplinary nature of the field: astronomy, nuclear physics, astrophysics and particle physics are equally involved. One basic effort of nuclear astrophysics is the collection of ob servational facts with astronomical methods. Laboratory studies of the nuclear processes involved in various astrophysical scenarios have provided fundamen tal information serving both as input for and test of astrophysical models. The theoretical understanding of nuclear reaction mechanisms is necessary, for example, to extrapolate the experimentally determined reaction rates to the thermonuclear energy range, which is relevant for the nuclear processes in our cosmos. Astrophysical models and calculations allow us to simulate how nuclear processes contribute to driving the evolution of stars, interstellar matter and the whole universe. Finally, elementary particle physics also plays an important role in the field of nuclear astrophysics, for instance through weak interaction processes involving neutrinos.
