Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0275926796, Paperback)

In this volume the creator and director of Jodrell Bank, the world's largest radio telescope, tells the fascinating story behind the building of this huge telescope. Though the telescope is popularly known for tracking and communicating with man-made satellites, its prime function is the study of the universe by means of radio waves emitted by distatant stars. The radiation received from meteors, the moon, the Andromeda Galaxy, and the Milky Way offers new information daily about the origins of life on this planet and the possibilities of life on other worlds. The building of the telescope was fraught with mishaps and frustrations-financial, political, and otherwise; yet, through his perseverance, Sir Bernard Lovell made its creation a reality. His story, drawn largely from personal diaries, documents the complex conflicts among scientists, bureaucrats, and politicians which arose out of this monumental endeavor.
