Lonely Hearts of the Cosmos

The Story of the Scientific Quest for the Secret of the Universe

In southern California, nearly a half century ago, a small band of researchers — equipped with a new 200-inch telescope and a faith born of scientific optimism — embarked on the greatest intellectual adventure in the history of humankind: the search for the origin and fate of the universe.
