Northern Lights: The True Story of the Man Who Unlocked the Secrets of the Aurora Borealis
Lucy Jago (au)
Throughout the ages, the lights of the aurora borealis were believed to be messengers of gods, signs of apocalypse, or souls of the dead. Here is the story of the science -- & the romance -- behind the Northern Lights (NL) as she traces the life of Kristian Birkeland. At the age of 31, he set out on a lifelong quest to discover the origins of the aurora borealis. Along the way, he made some remarkable discoveries & inventions, such as hearing aids for deaf patients; of making caviar from cod roe; & of using the force of cathode rays to propel rockets. Ultimately, his obsession with the workings of the cosmos cost him his life. His ideas have furthered our understanding not only of the NL but also of electromagnetism, comets, & the sun.
