Secrets of the Hoary Deep
A Personal History of Modern AstronomyBook - 2008
Part history, part memoir, and part science, this is the tale of x-ray astronomy from its infancy through what can only be called its early adulthood. It also offers the companion story of how the tools, techniques, and practices designed to support and develop x-ray astronomy were transferred to optical, infrared, and radio astronomy.
