Wikipedia: Wikipedia articals on universe and astronomy, V1.0, 04 May 2013

Hi I recently fetch some articles (about universe) from wikipedia and Im sharing it here. There are 8 epub files, about 25 articles per each epub file, total about 200 articals (They are not put in any particular order.)
Those topics includes, our universe, how might be born, how it might die, general reletivity, black/white holes, neutron stars, galaxies, cluster, supclusters, stars/star systems, solar system, possible life on other planets, fantasies on cosmic traveling and colonization and many other random interesting topics on astronomy and universe.
Hopefully this will pick up your curiosity and enjoyment .

Not sure what you have done here, but attempting to open the first file in ADE 1.7.2.1131 on Windows results in ADE crashing.

for me, It works well on PC. On prs—t2, the first file caused a freeze once(at the first time being opened), but after that all 8 files are fine to read. While on an android tab reader, I have both 2 read app all crash on 4th file. I guess the conversion is imperfect, and depends on your luck and device you might not be able to view all of them properly.

I hate to be negative but if you're going to take the time to upload material like this, at least take the care to to ensure it works.

Maybe next time, you should think to read on a platform that actually works.

ghero, nice compilation and good idea (from a knowledge point of view).

Have you try to pass the first epub (part 01) through epubcheck (http://code.google.com/p/epubcheck/)? It shows some errors in the content.opf file. Without them, it is quite possible that this file would load faster and could be better handled within various systems.

Just curious: would not it be easier (for the reader at least) to gather the articles, let say, from general topics to more specific one?

Have a nice day and thanks for sharing.

I don’t get it.
Why did you upload this content and not just link to your wikipedia-books on wikipedia (how to) and promote it on mobileread?
On wikipedia people would be able to download your books in pdf, ePub, zim or odt without any problems.

Excuse me... but ADE IS the standard for reading ePub material. If YOUR content does not work on it......

Thanks You might also try using the Wiki Book Creator tool (look on the Wiki Page / left hand side, Print/Export, Create Book) and adding the individual pages to the book; it seems to result in a better looking book than the Calibre plugin version.

If you do use CreateBook, I find it looks better if you add Chapter breaks in via it as well.
