Premier volet de la série "Vous avez-dit sophrologie ?" de Patricia Penot, présenté sous forme d'entretien. "Tout individu a une capacité de mieux se connaître, de mieux se comprendre et pas uniquement par le raisonnement intellectuel" rappelle Patricia Penot, qui nous enseigne que se connaître commence d'abord par des exercices simples de respiration, de positionnement et d'observation du corps. Une spécialité qui nous aide à nous dominer, qui nous apprend à lâcher-prise, à maîtriser nos émotions par une meilleure utilisation de notre mental et de notre corps, c'est déjà une philosophie de vie. Directrice de formation, auteure et conférencière, Patricia Penot est sophrologue spécialiste branche clinique et préventive, relaxologue et formatrice en EFT. Directrice du Centre de Sophrologie, Evolution Formation, elle conseille et enseigne dans le domaine du bien-être, de la connaissance de soi et du développement des capacités personnelles depuis plus de 20 ans. Elle est conceptrice et l'animatrice de l'émission "Parlons Sophrologie" sur Radio Médecine Douce. Auteure de plusieurs ouvrages, dont "Plonger au cœur de soi" (Solar, 2014) et "4 Etapes et je lâche prise" (Solar, 2015), Patricia anime également des conférences et des stages sur les thèmes de ses livres. 1.

NASA's James Webb Space Telescope (JWST), planned for operation in about five years, will have the capability to investigate - and answer - some of the most challenging questions in astronomy. Although motivated and designed to study the very early Universe, the performance of the observatory's instruments over a very wide wavelength range will allow the world's scientific community unequaled ability to study cosmic phenomena as diverse as small bodies in the Solar System and the formation of galaxies.As part of preparation to use JWST, a conference was held in Tucson, Arizona in 2007 that brought together astronomers from around the world to discuss the mission, other major facilities that will operate in the coming decade, and major scientific goals for them. This book is a compilation of those presentations by some of the leading researchers from all branches of astronomy. This book also includes a "pre-history" of JWST, describing the lengthy process and some of the key individuals that initiated early work on the concepts that would evolve to become the premier space observatory of the next decade.

'The Hunt for Planet X is a fascinating tale by one of the world's premier astronomy writers. Govert Schilling is not only scrupulously accurate, he writes beautifully as well.' Stephen P. Maran, Author of 'Astronomy for Dummies' and Press Officer, American Astronomical Society 'The Hunt for Planet X is an adventure story or, more accurately, a series of adventure stories. Schilling tells them well, capturing both the science and the people involved. It starts with the classics: Uranus, Neptune and Pluto; and moves all over the solar system as ground-based astronomers and space scientists pour over measurements and observations to try to understand the worlds around us. Current debates about the Pioneer Anomaly and the definition of what is a planet make the book current as well as a good history.' Dr. Louis Friedman, Executive Director, The Planetary Society 'This exciting tale of the centuries-old search for new planets in the solar system reads like a thriller. It is an adventure packed with fierce competition, brilliant discoveries, dumb errors, lucky coincidences and artful intrigue &#8211; in short, the full spectrum of the human drama. The story reaches an exciting climax in 2006, when we lost Pluto as a planet but gained a number of ice dwarfs in return. This colorful account chock-full of fascinating details is an excellent metaphor for the great adventure of science.' Robbert Dijkgraaf, Professor of Mathematical Physics at the University of Amsterdam The Hunt for Planet X: New Worlds and the Fate of Pluto goes beyond a standard scientific read, encompassing who, and what, is involved in the pursuit of planetary endeavors. Touching on over three-hundred years of debates, debacles and discoveries, this book offers the reader insight into the minds and motives of planetary astronomers and their findings. The 'hunt' continues to the outer-most regions of the solar system, and Govert Schilling states this search will not cease: 'Astronomy is an adventurous science,' he writes, and without adventure and those who seek it out the universe would otherwise remain mysterious. The real-life characters presented in The Hunt for Planet X look for glimpses of light in the dark, from icy Kuiper Belt objects to full-fledged planets, in the process challenging how such worlds should be defined and ultimately describing the Universe.

The rollicking adventures of the Stone Family on a tour of the Solar System. It all statred when the twins, Castor and Pollux Stone, decided that life on the Lunar colony was too dull and decided to buy their own spaceship and go into business for themselves. Their father thought that was a fine, idea, except that he and Grandma Hazel bought the spaceship and the whole Stone Family were on their way out into the far reaches of the Solar System, with stops on Mars(where the twins got a lesson in the interplanetary economics of bicycles and the adorable little critters called flatcats who, it turned out, bred like rabbits; or perhaps, Tribbles....), out to the asteroids, where Mrs. Stone, an M.D., was needed to treat a dangerous outbreak of disease, even further out, to Titan and beyond. Unforgettable Heinlein characters on an unforgettable adventure. 'Not only America´s premier writer of speculative fiction, but the greatest writer of such fiction in the world'. - Stephen King Comprehensive Teacher´s Guide available.
