The Discoveries: Great Breakthroughs in 20th Century Science

The Discoveries: Great Breakthroughs in 20th Century Science includes the original scientific papers. This is a fantastic book! Alan Lightman paints the context for each discovery, before presenting the original paper.

Astroscan Telescope from Edmund Scientific

This is a great starting telescope, and has a very comfortable-round shape. Astroscan Telescope is a high-performance telescope that is easy-to-use, maintenance-free and completely portable.

A long time ago, there was a great store in Noe Valley called "Star Magic". It had all kinds of cool stuff in it, most of it to do with space and science (but not all). That's where I bought an Astroscan telescope as a gift for my husband and eventually discovered Edmund Scientifics. Years later, GalaxyGoo became an Edmund Scientifics affiliate, and we're now linking to one of their products: the Astroscan telescope. Funny how life travels these little circles and spirals.
