An impressive number of science’s most well-known figures are showcased in Scientific American Presents: Nobel Prize Winners on Physics and Astronomy, a collection of articles penned by Nobel Prize-winning doctors and scientists during the last 80 years. This book explores fascinating features of the night sky and the makeup of the universe, including black holes, supernovas, and Albert Einstein’s musings on gravity. Scientific American Presents: Nobel Prize Winners on Physics and Astrophysics also features articles from other luminaries such as Erwin Schrodinger and Niels Bohr, as well as more recent work from scientists such as Charles H. Townes, who speculated in an article published in 1990 that there may be a giant black hole at the center of our galaxy, a prediction which was proved correct within a decade. Other Nobel Prize winners included are:

· P.A.M. Dirac

· Harold C. Urey

· Willard F. Libby

· Hans A. Bethe

· Hannes Alfvén

· Anthony Hewish

 

· Martin Ryle

· James W. Cronin

· William A. Fowler

· Joseph Taylor

· Frederick Reines

· Vitaly L. Ginzburg

The book features a foreword from Brian May, who took a break from his astrophysics career after receiving his undergraduate degree in his 20s to tour the world as the lead guitarist for the band Queen. He fi nished his doctoral dissertation 36 years after he started it, and he is now the chancellor at Liverpool John Moores University in England. He is also the co-author of the book Bang! The Complete History of the Universe.
