  • Deep Millimeter Surveysby James D. Lowenthal; David H. Hughes

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2001; US$ 176.00

    The arrival of large submillimeter and millimeter-wave detector arrays opened a new window on galaxy formation and evolution. The major new facilities now being designed or constructed, such as ALMA (MMA) and the Large Millimeter Telescope (LMT), will soon be expanding the horizons even farther.The Conference on “Deep Millimeter Surveys: Implications... more...

  • Science and Spectacleby John Agar

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 175.00

    Science and Spectacle relates the construction of the telescope to the politics and culture of post-war Britain. From radar and atomic weapons, to the Festival of Britain and, later, Harold Wilson's rhetoric of scientific revolution, science formed a cultural resource from which post-war careers and a national identity could be built. The Jodrell... more...
