5.0 out of 5 stars Very good cable, 29 Dec. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Good quality cable, did the job of running a connection through our garage where the DSL comes into the house. We wanted our modem to be as near to the where the DSL line came into the building as possible. I used this Cat 6 to bring the connection from the modem in the gauge into the house, in the house we use a power line system, which we cannot use in the garage as its on a different circuit.

4.0 out of 5 stars Loose leaf green Tea, 24 May 2014

This guy is small, but holds plenty of loose leaf tea. Its very portable and I carry it to university everyday. You could put tea bags in it but it wouldn't hold many! great for loose leaf.


Pale Blue Dot: a Vision of the Human Future in Space
Pale Blue Dot: a Vision of the Human Future in Space
by Carl Sagan
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars Inspiring, 20 Jan. 2012
You cannot read this book without Sagan enthusiasm for cosmology rubbing off on you. A fair amount of the book is concerned with the voyager missions he was involved with in the 1970s. He injects a wonderful human narrative into what is one of the most important (maybe THE most) scientific endeavours in space so far. You will be amazed at the ingenuity of scientists who were first to chart so many new worlds, especially as the mission were undertaken before modern day computing and miniaturisation.

It's wonderful to read about these missions, and I enjoyed looking up some of his unanswered questions on the internet to see which had been answered, although I found it very sad that he died before some missions he writes about, such as Cassini-Huygens, came to fruition.

The book also has a rather spiritual tone. The "pale blue dot" of which the book is named after is a picture of our earth taken from the outskirts of the solar system by the voyager missions. Sagan tells us that this is no distance at all in the scale of universe, and yet from here our planet is barely visible. Sagan elegantly uses this picture to illustrate humanities real place in the universe, putting into perspective our absurd delusions of grandeur and pointless wars. Such revelations may at first seem depressing but Sagan shows us that rather then feel isolated and unimportant we should instead feel embraced and connected to the majesty of cosmos.

Towards end of the book Carl Sagan writes of frailty of our planet. His words are so heart felt and beautiful. You will be inspired and hopefully moved to turn some lights off!

The really great thing about Sagan is he never comes across as arrogant nether do his views ever seek to belittle the less scientifically educated, he was a wonderful ambassador for science and I recommend this book to everyone.

3.0 out of 5 stars Pretty Good, 20 April 2011
This book is well written and easy to read, it does contain some insights and helps to build a little physics intuition not seen in other text books.

But there is a distant lack of questions and answers, of the questions set in the text only answers for the numerical questions are given, and even then no working out is shown.

I was a little disappointed after reading all the reviews and find I have to supplement the text heavy with web sites like physicsclassroom. I only really learn by exercise drilling and if you're the same I would be mindful here.

There are more questions on the books website but they are tricky to find and not under the URL in the book.

In a nutshell the book is good for a general physics overview it not good as a sole text for exam preparation.
