Saturn's moon Rhea had been considered massive enough to retain a thin, externally generated atmosphere capable of locally affecting Saturn's magnetosphere. The Cassini spacecraft's in situ observations reveal that energetic electrons are depleted in the moon's vicinity. The absence of a substantial exosphere implies that Rhea's magnetospheric interaction(More)

The intent of this book is to cover the waterfront, and the author begins with a chapter on computer logic that I very much appreciated as one who occasionally teaches a course of that name. As he points out, a " computer error " is actually a " programmer error " , as the computer is only doing " exactly what you told it to do, just not what you want it to(More)
Vitrification is an attractive potential pathway to the successful cryopreservation of mature mammalian organs, but modern cryobiological research on vitrification to date has been devoted mostly to experiments with solutions and with biological systems ranging in diameter from about 6 through about 100 microns. The present paper focuses on concerns which(More)

no price data available This is not so much a textbook as a collection of papers related to different aspects of the problems related to military coalition operations. Section 1, Coalition Communication and Information Networks, looks at the issues related to the building of coalition networks when each of the participants comes to the table with a(More)
To investigate the universality of magnetic turbulence in space plasmas, we analyze seven time periods in the free solar wind under different plasma conditions. Three instruments on Cluster spacecraft operating in different frequency ranges give us the possibility to resolve spectra up to 300 Hz. We show that the spectra form a quasiuniversal spectrum(More)
The Magnetospheric Imaging Instrument (MIMI) onboard the Cassini spacecraft observed the saturnian magnetosphere from January 2004 until Saturn orbit insertion (SOI) on 1 July 2004. The MIMI sensors observed frequent energetic particle activity in interplanetary space for several months before SOI. When the imaging sensor was switched to its energetic(More)
The Cassini magnetometer has detected the interaction of the magnetospheric plasma of Saturn with an atmospheric plume at the icy moon Enceladus. This unanticipated finding, made on a distant flyby, was subsequently confirmed during two follow-on flybys, one very close to Enceladus. The magnetometer data are consistent with local outgassing activity via a(More)

The author starts off by differentiating between learning to code, essentially a left-brain function, and creative problem solving, a largely right-brain activity. Definitely a good start! And while the book uses C++ to illustrate various concepts, the author emphasizes that the creative thought processes can be applied to any programming environment.(More)

As Dr. King points out, all languages have both strengths and weaknesses; the important thing is to be aware of both, to use the former where they are useful, and avoid the latter wherever possible. This book aids one in doing just that. The book is intended to be a comprehensive guide to the language as it currently exists (both C99 and C89 are covered;(More)
