OCS (3 Book Series)
From Book 1: Amazon Best Seller - #1 in Astronomy, Astrophysics & Space Science, and Cosmology

"This book is a great intro to the topics of human civilizations throughout history, sustainability of our world, and astrobiology - covering the formation of life on Earth, the future of life, and explores the search for life elsewhere in the Universe." - Amazon review

Our Cosmic Story is a big picture view of our Universe and the potential it has for life and civilization. We start by briefly looking back at the story of Earth and its great civilizations, understand how life itself evolved Homo sapiens, review the challenges and risks that a species entails in developing a civilization and growing into a space-fairing entity, and then explore the makeup of the Universe to gain insight into the chance of other sentient creatures living elsewhere.

The quest to reach beyond the confines of our world is a natural consequence of being a very small part of a grand and dynamic Universe. Looking up at the sky instills within us some expectation that we are not alone, and we wonder if there is not something amazing happening out there somewhere. This sense of awe may not be exclusive to Earthlings; for in a galaxy truly far away, there could be creatures with similar musings as they peer towards our corner of the Universe. The idea that we share a common experience with others in the cosmos is something to keep in mind while reading this book.

Summary

“The surface of the Earth is the shore of the cosmic ocean. From it we have learned most of what we know. Recently, we have waded a little out to sea, enough to dampen our toes or, at most, wet our ankles. The water seems inviting. The ocean calls.” - Carl Sagan

History: Fiction or Science? (22 Book Series)
From Book 1: NASA research of earth-moon mechanics of late astrophysicist Robert Newton leads Russian mathematicians to a breakthrough in the chronology of the world history that crowns 30 years of meticulous and extensive research. This research was actually an anecdotical byproduct of Russian-American competition in Moon exploration.'The The issue with Chronology' is the first volume in "History: Fiction or Science?" e-series, the fundamental oeuvre that exposes and expounds the numerous in-veracities of the traditional version of history.


The alternatives offered to classical history are stunning, unorthodox to the extent of being labeled heretical by virtually every scholar of history. In "The Issue with Chronology" we are reminded of when the contemporary chronological scale was created and by whom, with the culprits named as the XVI-XVII century clergy that was in charge of all matters historical in that age.

We also learn that the consensual model of history had prominent critics ever since its creation – among them such names as Sir Isaac Newton and Jean Hardouin, chief librarian of Louis XIV, the Sun King of France and collector of Louvre museum. The author dissects every historical age and analyzed the data from every source imaginable – Roman and Egyptian chronology take a good beating, and it goes rapidly downhill from there. Poggio Bracciolini and Petrarch take the blame for creating the legend of a mythical Classical age that never was.

The Biblical events are moved a lot closer to us historically, as well as geographically (the Biblical Jerusalem being identified with the mediaeval Constantinople, for instance). The New and the Old Testament swap their positions on the chronological scale, both exposed as referring to mediaeval events. Our perception of history begins to change dramatically even before we’re through with "The Issue with Chronology".

On one hand, Dr. Fomenko et al call everybody, historians including, to apply the Occam's razor to the world history. On the other, the scientists Dr. Fomenko et al are ready to recognize their alleged mistakes of New Chronology theory, to repent and to retract if and only if:

- radiocarbon dating methods or dendrochronology pass a rigorous anonymous 'black box' tests; - verifiable astronomic data refutes their results on solar eclipses;

- it is proven irrefutably that Robert Newton (NASA astrophysicist) was wrong calling 'ancient' Ptolemy the greatest con man in history in his 'Crime of Claudius Ptolemy';

The radiocarbon dating labs run their very costly tests only if the sample to be dated is accompanied with an idea of age pronounced by historians on basis of...subjective..mmm...gutfeeling. Radiocarbon labs happily bill for their fiddling and fine-tuning with C14 hardware to get the dates 'to order' of historians.

The first circular calibration curve was made by mid-fifties by Radiolab of Arizona Univesity with samples from 'Ancient' Egypt provided by the expedition of the same University. Circulus Vicious is perfect. Connect the dots!

PS : Prescient Saint Augustine warned: 'be wary of mathematicians, particularly when they speak the truth!'. That's why Jesuits took over control of Chronology in XVI cy when it was a part of mathematics. Now the mathematicians take it back. The New Chronology theory based on exact sciences says that all events that took place allegedly over 1300 years ago, as well as real persons who took part in them, are simply unknown to us.

Eclipses Illustrated (2 Book Series)
From Book 1: Eclipses are visual phenomena. Yet many eclipse books are “sciencey,” text-based with lengthy verbal descriptions but only a handful of illustrations. In contrast, Eclipses Illustrated employs a visual medium to present visual lessons for understanding this most visual subject. Eclipses Illustrated is a five-part series of detailed depictions of eclipse phenomena, presented in an approachable, “user-friendly” illustrated format.

There has not been a total eclipse of the Sun over the Continental United States since the 1970s. An entire generation of Americans has come of age never experiencing this mind-blowing spectacle in their own nation. But this “dark age” ends with the total eclipse of August 21, 2017, when a “golden age” of American eclipses begins! There will be FIVE total solar eclipses in the United States over the next 35 years! And many lunar eclipses will be seen over the USA in the next decade. The majestic spectacle of eclipses will be a defining feature of 21st century American life. Eclipses Illustrated will help prepare readers of all ages to observe and appreciate the amazing eclipse phenomenon.

Book 1 – The Eclipse Experience teaches the elements of solar and lunar eclipses. Special emphasis is given to American eclipses of the 21st century. Many visual aspects of eclipse observing are explained, including detailed instructions for safe viewing and the importance of viewing the eclipse from the right location. This first book of the series lays the foundation for more in-depth explanations in later installments.
