Mother Nature intro

MOTHER NATURE – Introduction

This section of Calder’s Updates is a catch-all for science that is neither about Predictions (in the future tense) nor about Climate Change.

Sub-headings in this section

  • About Magic Universe
  • About Einstein’s Universe
  • About Comets

Magic Universe covers all subjects but Einstein’s Universe and Comets are still in print, and updates will posted to whichever of the books is most relevant.

Here’s a bibliography of my writing and editing on science in general. It excludes items listed under Predictions and Climate Change, unless there’s clearly an overlap. ESA means European Space Agency.
