Eyes on the Universe

(1975)
A History of the Telescope
A non fiction book by

 
In this book, Isaac Asimov chronicles what has been humanity's supreme adventure - the journey of the mind from the narrow boundaries of our home planet to the outer reaches of the universe. It is a story full of the suspense of intellectual discovery as one piece after another of the vast jigsaw puzzle is fitted into place, but it also has a parallel excitement and glamor in the astounding technological break troughs that brought the telescope from the first crude instruments of the seventeenth century to the giant sixteen-foot reflectors of the forties and fifties and the enormous radio telescopes that are in use today.
