Soft Moon: Exploring Matter and Mutability in Narratives and Histories of the Earth-Moon System
ABSTRACT Theories of the formation of the Earth-Moon system allow us to understand not only our historical relationship to science and observation but also how we have perceived ourselves in theExpand
Consider the Moon. Human-Computer Bricolage of Extended Objects
A new approach is proposed to help cultivate auspicious cognitive relationships with things: the 'extended object', which can be symmetrically and methodically extended through the authors' thoughts -- in conversation, and in time. Expand
Géodésie terrestre et géodésie par satellites
RésuméAprès un rappel des notions fondamentales utilisées en géodésie terrestre et en géodésie spatiale, les auteurs décrivent les méthodes de construction d'un système géodésique, soit par laExpand

Theravada treatment and psychotherapy: an ecological integration of Buddhist tripartite practice and Western rational analysis
An assertion that psychotherapy is an independent science and a self-authority on human mind and behaviour has uprooted its connection with philosophy and religion. In practice, theExpand


The Figures of the Earth and Moon (Third Paper)
Summary The paper consists of a general adjustment of the data relevant to the radius and ellipticity of the Earth, the lunar parallax and the differences of the moments of inertia of the Moon.Expand
Radar Echoes from the Moon at a Wavelength of 10 CM
Radar contact has been made with the moon with short pulses at 2860 mc, beginning a program of short-pulse lunar radar. The principal objective of the program is to obtain more accurate moon-to-earthExpand
Radar Observation of Venus
Radar observations of Venus during the last close approach have resulted in a value of solar parallax of 8.79460 seconds of arc, corresponding to a value for the astronomical unit of 149,596,000 km.Expand
The present extent of the astro-geodetic geoid and the geodetic world datum derived from it
Since the presentation of “The Hough Ellipsoid” at the Toronto meeting in 1957, the astro-geodetic geoid was extended into the Caribbean, India, and Japan. The two hemispheres were tentativelyExpand
An Introductory Treatise on the Lunar Theory
THE design of this valuable text-book on the lunar theory is similar to that of Tisserand's “Mécanique Céleste,” the object in both cases being to lay before the reader the methods by which variousExpand
A tentative world datum from geoidal heights based on the Hough ellipsoid and the Columbus geoid
From all astro-geodetic material available at present, geoidal heights were computed on the 1927 North American Datum for the western hemisphere from Canada to Chile, and on the European Datum forExpand
Gravitational and Related Constants for Accurate Space Navigation
Gravitational and Related Constants for Accurate Space Navigation. The paper first compares the Gaussian gravitational constant, k s , and the astronomical unit with the cgs value of G and the meter,Expand
Statistical and harmonic analysis of gravity
Markov theory is developed in terms of two correlated functions, the free-air gravity anomaly and the elevation of the topography. The Markov methods are applied to the mean anomalies of 1°×1° blocksExpand
