About this product

Please note: this software was written and designed before 64-bit operating systems (OS) were introduced. If you are running a 64-bit OS, such as a 64-bit version of Windows Vista or Windows 7, this software may not function. Please note that suppliers do not accept returns of sealed software that has been opened, and NHBS can therefore not refund such items. If in doubt, please contact customer services or the software supplier to enquire after compatibility before purchasing this item.

This CD-ROM contains the entire text of Kaufmann's "Universe" (4th ed). It features: new visuals, including additional versions of pictures from the text and up-to-date images on cutting-edge topics; 25 computer animations of cosmological phenomena; and 10 supercomputer simulations demonstrating complex concepts. This CD-ROM demonstrates the latest in scientific exploration. For instance, the user can see the newly corrected Hubble Space telescope train its eye on a black hole or follow the collision of a comet with Jupiter. There is a built-in Presentation Manager, so that it is possible to orchestrate a play list of images for lecture or study. This disc is compatible with both Macintosh and IBM-compatible systems. Minimum system requirements for Macintosh are: 68030 processor (or better) running system 7.0 or above; 4 MB RAM (8MB recommended); CD-ROM drive (double-speed recommended, such as Apple CD 300); colour monitor displaying 8-bit (256 colours) at 640 x 480 resolution.
