      Space. The Challenge of the Present

      Space Sustainability between Exploration and Discovery

      The book deals with the many important issues related to space exploration, using a thoroughly informative language. It includes spectacular satellite images and "conversations" with famous astronauts and industry leaders.

      Today, humankind is preoccupied with the balance of the planet. Space exploration, meanwhile, is living a golden age that began in the 1950s and has led to space being experienced like never before. The international space station, countless satellites and the quest to extract minerals from the closest celestial bodies are only a few of the achievements that humankind has clinched or is working towards.

      One basic condition, though, must be met for all of this to come to fruition. The environmental sustainability of space enterprises is not only an ethical duty, but also a practical necessity.

      The Universe Like You’ve Never Seen It Before

      New Astronomies

      This is a guide to the exploration of the heavens and to the discoveries made thanks to powerful new telescopes, which have revealed a universe very different from the one we were used to.

      For thousands of years, astronomy relied on the human eye to observe the sky. But the stars do not just emit visible light: they also produce and radiate other types of light, from radio waves to gamma rays.

      Here, the author shows us a much more energetic, violent, variable and unpredictable cosmos, where neutron stars pack more mass than the Sun into a 10-km-radius sphere. He explains how infrared rays can be used to observe the birth of a star and the formation of a planet.

      Understanding the Dynamics of hypersocial Communication

      This book provides a thorough understanding of the communicative and cultural dynamics of the top social media platform of the moment, thanks to the contribution of a group of scholars combining media studies, sociology, semiotics and linguistics.

      The book is intended for the broader audience of people inside and outside universities who want to go beyond the inner workings of TikTok and understand its role as a sweeping socio-cultural phenomenon involving communication and marketing professionals, communication scholars and students of communication courses, creatives and content creators. It is also ideal for anyone looking for tools to fathom what is not just the “viral phenomenon of the week” or the “latest hot app”, but one of the most powerful forces in contemporary communication.

      Nuclear Fusion. Myth or Reality?

      A possible Breakthrough for a new source of Energy

      This is a book to learn more about waste, ultra-safe reactors and attempts at energy efficiency, up to the search for Helium-3 on the Moon.

      After decades of testing, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory in California was able to produce more energy than the amount used to trigger the reaction, giving concrete evidence of a breakthrough in energy production.

      This book explains all the background to the discovery and its effects. Above all, it calls for transparency in the communication of a chequered news story. After showing how energy is produced by fusing deuterium and tritium nuclei, the author explains the myth of the Q-factor and presents the results of other ongoing experiments around the world.

      The Millionaire Brain

      Your Mind is the Key to Wealth

      Intelligence comes in many guises – emotional, logical and relational, just to name a few. This book aims to identify how you can achieve wealth through your own model of intelligence.

      The book is a real page-turner, explaining how the concept of wealth has evolved over the decades and what paths can be followed to achieve it.

      Becoming wealthy isn’t just a matter of mimicking what others have done, but rather of starting with yourself and learning to leverage your own features, qualities and needs in a completely different way.

      Your pathway to achieving a wealth-oriented mindset should be based on what makes you unique – your background, your influences, your wounds and the fears you have faced. While these are typically identified as limitations, they can actually be turned into your keys to success.

      The book uses clear, straight-forward language, providing plenty of examples and case studies; each chapter ends with a handy summary that can act as a precious stepping stone along your own path.

      Smashing Rackets

      Tennis and breaking Moments

      This is a photographic and anecdotal journey through an explosive and somehow unique gesture in sport: the racket smash.

      Why smash a racket? Why did some tennis players never even think they could do it? All tennis players – even amateurs – have had a moment of rage when, for the first time, their precious racket ended up in smithereens.

      Filippo Trojano has shot dozens of studio pictures of smashed rackets, turning them into full-blown portraits; Federico Ferrero has complemented each shot with anecdotes and historical references. Rounding out the narrative are the words of tennis greats and archive photographs from the 1930s to the 1970s. The centrepiece, through and through, is the tennis racket.

      Foreword by Marco Lodoli.
