From Quantum to Cosmos: Fundamental Physics Research in Space
Features articles contributed by participants of the international
workshop - From Quantum to Cosmos: Fundamental Physics Research in
Space - held at the Airlie Center in Warrenton, Virginia, USA, on
May 21-24, 2006. This volume discusses the advances in our
understanding of fundamental physics that are anticipated in the
