The Story of Science and Scientists
on February 3, 2014
I really enjoyed this book, but you should go into it knowing that it's not a "hard science" book. Instead, what this book does is tells the story of how the science of dark matter/dark energy has progress up to this point. For each component it weaves a story of the scientists and the science, letting you glimpse at how they got into the field and why they stayed and struggled for so long to gather the data which would push the field a tiny bit further as well as looking at what those struggles were. Not only does it give a nice overview of where the dark matter and dark energy field is today, but it provides an important reminder that science isn't set in stone and that it isn't always easy.
If you're interested in the story check this book out, you won't be disappointed. If you're interested in the science, better look elsewhere.
