The Rise of Radio Astronomy in the Netherlands: The People and the Politics (Historical & Cultural Astronomy) by Astrid Elbers
English | 2 Dec. 2016 | ISBN: 3319490788 | 240 Pages | PDF | 4.81 MB

Radio astronomy was born during the Second World War, but as this book explains, the history of early Dutch radio astronomy is in several respects rather anomalous in comparison to the development of radio astronomy in other countries. The author describes how these very differences led the Netherlands to become one of the world leaders in radio astronomy.
