Book Review: Greenwich Time: Greenwich Time and the Discovery of the Longitude Article (PDF Available) in Journal for the History of Astronomy 13(1) January with 20 ReadsAuthor: Steven J. Dick. Four hundred years ago, Galileo Galilei turned his newly constructed spyglass to the skies, and thus began astronomers' use of novel telescopes to explore a universe that is invisible to the unaided eye.

The search for the unseen has resulted in many important unexpected discoveries, including Jupiter's four large moons, the planet Uranus, the first asteroid Ceres, the large recession. The book is structured as a series of articles on serendipitous discoveries from the time of Archimedes right up into the late twentieth century.

You can write a book review and share your experiences. Other readers will always be interested in your opinion of the books you've read.

Whether you've loved the book or not, if you give your honest and detailed thoughts then people will find new books that are right for them. Sullivan (82 Classics in Radio Astronomy, Reidel) has published a collection of the major historical papers in radio astronomy, and collections of papers discussing the historical development have been published by Sullivan (84 Early Years of Radio Astronomy, Cambridge Univ.

Such is the story of the discovery of pulsars 40 years ago by Irish physicist Jocelyn Bell-Burnell and her Ph.D. thesis advisor, Antony Hewish. To earn her doctorate in physics, Bell-Burnell was to use a new radio telescope at the University of Cambridge, England, to study quasars, about which little was.

Radio astronomy is a subfield of astronomy that studies celestial objects at radio frequencies. The first detection of radio waves from an astronomical object was inwhen Karl Jansky at Bell Telephone Laboratories observed radiation coming from the Milky Way.

Subsequent observations have ident. The excursion into serendipity comes on page in the hardback edition and forms a prelude to several serendipitous discoveries in radio astronomy. This is the same Simon Singh who lately became a science hero when he risked financial ruin in the interests of exposing false science and how the UK libel law works to protect rich companies Author: Peter Household.

Kenneth Kellermann is a senior scientist at the National Radio Astronomy Observatory headquarters in Charlottesville, VA. His book, Serendipitous Discoveries in Radio Astronomy, which he edited with B. Sheets, provides accounts of the dramatic growth and unexpected discoveries of radio astronomy by those who made it happen.

Break. An inquisitive mind Surprising or anomalous results sometimes stimulate new discoveries, but it takes a scientific perspective to look beyond an anomaly and see it as something worth following up. Wilhelm Roentgen's discovery of the X-ray started with a serendipitous observation, but explaining it required careful g by himself in the lab, Roentgen was trying to make electrons.

Since Karl Jansky's first observations inimprovements in technology have increased the sensitivity of radio telescopes by an average of about two orders of magnitude per decade, improved the angular resolution of radio images from tens of degrees to better than a thousandth of an arcsecond, and extended the short wavelength limit of radio astronomy from meter to millimeter and sub.

Introduction An important window to the Universe was opened in when Karl Jansky discovered serendipitously at the Bell Telephone Laboratories that radio waves were being emitted towards the direction of our Galaxy [1].File Size: KB.

Most scientific breakthroughs take years of research – but often, serendipity provides the final push, as these historic discoveries show. This piece accompanies Marcus Chown's feature on the discovery of cosmic background radiation, from the Spring edition of New Humanist.

Perhaps the most famous accidental discovery of all is. electrical, or optical engineering. High-performance computing has become necessary to make full use of many observations. For example, powerful algorithms have greatly enhanced imaging telescopes that operate in the radio and in the optical domains (Figure ; see also Plate ).The VLA that astronomers use today is much more powerful and flexible than the one that was originally designed.

A serendipitous discovery in science is often accidental, as its name implies. Some scientists try to design their experiments in a way that increases the chance of serendipity, though. Many discoveries in science are interesting and meaningful.

A serendipitous discovery goes Reviews: The book is structured as a series of articles on serendipitous discoveries from the time of Archimedes right up into the late twentieth century. Sometimes romance and scientific legend are employed, especially in the early half of the book, in order to entertain and support the thesis of serendipity, but I think little is lost by such speculation/5(29).

This book is based on a long experience and feeling on the modern medical breakthroughs of one talented and experienced abdominal radiologist. In his book, Dr. Meyers is saying that medical discoveries in history came about because someone stumbled upon an answer and after some creative thought, figured out what problem had to be inadvertently.

For others, unsatisfied with such a passive approach, it has been enough to attempt detection through unconventional applications of radio astronomical instrumentation.

Had detections occurred during such searches, they too would have been serendipitous to the development of the field of radio by: 6.
