Summary
"Galileo, Newton, Herschel, Huggins, Hale, Eddington, Shapley, and Hubble: these astronomers applied ideas drawn from physics to astronomy and made dramatic changes to the world-pictures that they inherited. They showed that celestial objects are composed of the same materials as the earth and that they behave in the same way. They displaced successively the earth, the sun, and finally the milky way galaxy from being the centre of the universe. This book contains their biographies and outlines their greatest discoveries."--Jacket
