Stargazer: The Life and Times of the Telescope
Fred Watson (au)
The history of the telescope is one of human ingenuity and perseverance involving some of the most colorful figures of the scientific world -- Galileo, Johannes Kepler, Isaac Newton, William Herschel, George Ellery Hale, and Edwin Hubble. This book brings to life the story of these brilliant, sometimes quirky scientists as they turned their eyes and ideas beyond what anyone thought possible. It lucidly and compellingly reveals the science and technology behind the telescope, as well as its enormous impact in unveiling the mysteries of the universe. Dr. Watson is Astronomer-in-Charge of the Anglo-Australian Observatory in New South Wales, where he is responsible for Australia’s largest optical telescope. Over 100 illustrations.
