|This well-illustrated volume is the most comprehensive account of Australian astromy to date. It is both an indispensable reference book on the history of astromy in Australia, and a highly readable study of a scientific discipline in the context of emerging nationhood. It covers t only the science, but the individuals involved and the social and ecomic climate in which they worked. Starting from the ancient Aboriginal beliefs about the Sky World - the earliest kwn astromy, anywhere in the world - we are led through to the most exciting high-tech current and projected research being carried out at Australia's world-class national astromy facilities, and by groups in Australian universities. All branches of astromy are covered - optical, infrared, X-ray, gamma-ray, microwave, gravitational wave and theoretical - including the contribution of amateur astromers. The n-technical language, many illustrations, and explanatory figures, ensure that this guide will appeal to a wide range of readers - including professional astromers, historians of science, students, amateur astromers and general readers.|
