From the second-century celestial models of Ptolemy to modern-day research institutes and quantum theory, this classic book offers a breathtaking tour of astronomy and the brilliant, eccentric personalities who have shaped it.

They have included some of the most charismatic, courageous, and idiosyncratic thinkers of all time.
