RADIO ASTRONOMY by Nigel Calder Kirkus Star



Pub Date: Feb. 23rd, 1959
Publisher: Roy-Progress of Science

Illustrated with photographs and diagrams, this book, written by a physicist, introduces the reader to an area of research which is generally unfamiliar, but essential to our research of outer space. Going into considerable detail about the mechanics of radio detection and the geography of the galaxies, Radio Astronomy initiates the young scientist into a fascinating realm of investigation, and in a final chapter suggests where he may find a profession within this field.
