Responsible for the greatest advances in astronomy since Copernicus, William and Caroline Herschel forever transformed the view of the heavens. Erudite and accessible, "The Georgian Star" is a lively portrait of the pair who invented modern astronomy.
From the Publisher:
A tribute to the scientific contributions of William Herschel and his pioneering sister, Caroline, describes their establishment of surveying techniques that are still in use, Caroline's cataloging of nebulae, and William's discovery of infrared radiation.
