Violent Universe book. to say that we can see 'everything' can no longer be much of an exaggeration. Barring the discovery of completely new forms of energy and matter, our children and even our ldren will have few new windows to open. Let's use our modern knowledge - only an additional 45 years! - to check his score-card. Over a quarter of the book is about quasars and active galaxies.

Nigel Calder was the son of Lord Peter Ritchie-Calder, a journalist who believed passionately in the potential of technology for improving society. Calder was born in London in 1931 and grew up there through the Second World War; the family were bombed out of their home during the Blitz. It was the time of Apollo 11’s landing on the Moon so Calder could not have picked a better time.

i bought this book for the picture of earth from space showing an opening at the North Pole. Yup. The picture is in this book. Since our violent universe was published before photo shop! This version 1970, I'm thinking there maybe something to this hollow earth theory. Definitely worth the 2 cents to purchase it.

In this small work Nigel Calder attempts to present a picture of the ongoing work being done in astronomy in 1968-9. He visits the various major observatories and reports on the work done there. He also at the outset gives a brief history of Astronomy and talks about the great strides being made in the field in the 1960's. He focuses on the galaxies and on their formation and editorializes on the violence of the processes at work, the great temperatures and energies involved. He discusses the discovery of quasars, of the microwave background radiation and pulsars. He tells us he is presenting a simplified and dramatic account of a process of discovery which is more continuous and painstaking than his narrative allows. He tells us that the story of discovery in Astronomy is far from over and will go on into the future.
Clearly anyone seeking to have an up-to- date picture will get only part of the story from this clearly written competent outline.
