Description:

THE JOURNEY TO PALOMAR traces the story of the Chicago-born astronomer George Ellery Hale, considered the father of astrophysics, as he struggled personally and professionally to build the greatest telescopes of the 20th century at the Yerkes and Mount Wilson Observatories, and finally, the 20-year effort to build the million-pound telescope on Palomar mountain beginning in the 1930s. Hale's observatories revolutionized our understanding of the universe.
