I find I am drawn to stories about those who science history had forgotten – unsung heroes who never got proper credit for their accomplishments. Who discovered the expansion of the universe? Who was the first to find evidence for dark matter? Who was the first person in space? Who came up with quantum field theory?
I was surprised to find they were not who I had thought. So I wrote a short compilation of essays on five such individuals – men and women who, despite extraordinary achievements, remain unknown to the general public and to many scientists.
My ebook, Unsung Heroes of Modern Physics, was a joy to write, and I hope it helps set the record straight. Please check it out.
