1.4 Stellar masses and stellar evolution

Measured masses range from about 0.08M to about 50M, a large range, with the Sun again showing up as an average sort of star. At the upper end we have some true monsters, but even at the lower end we have bodies that are still far more massive than the planets.

Climate Change and Global Health
Climate change raises a number of challenges to human wellbeing, among these is the threat to our health. In combination with climate change, large-scale global environmental changes such as loss of biodiversity, changes in fresh water supplies and stresses on food production systems, have the potential to cause systemic adverse alterations in patterns of health and disease. These can combine with many other specific challenges, including the emergence of new infectious diseases and the re-emerg

4.1 Introduction

Simple theories of chemical bonding are based on the idea of the electron-pair bond, and the extent to which the electron pair is shared between the bound atoms. There is also an assumption that the electronic structures of noble gas atoms are especially stable, and that many elements try to attain these structures when they react to form chemical compounds. These ideas were the brainchild of the American chemist, G. N. Lewis (Box 3). In developing them, we shall simplify the electronic confi

2 Background to the controversy

In February 1998, Andrew Wakefield and twelve co-authors published a study in The Lancet – a respected peer-reviewed medical journal. The paper was published with the highly technical, but seemingly innocuous, title: ‘Ileal-lymphoid-nodular hyperplasia, non-specific colitis, and pervasive developmental disorder in children’. It was based on a study of twelve children who had been referred to Wakefield's clinic with gastrointestinal disease. Most of the children had a regressive f
