Miss Leavitt's Stars
Miss Leavitt's Stars The Untold Story of the Woman Who Discovered How to Measure the Universe By Johnson, George Book - 2005

a truthful description of the way science progresses, by curiosity followed by measurement followed by over-reach then consolidation, then over-reach again ..., always guided by a fundamental faith in the universality of physical laws, always distorted, often delayed, by the human failings of the scientists involved.
