This story told in the first person starts with a child's interest in the night sky. A telescope starts a lifetime's interest in science. The narrator goes up to King's College, London to study. As a fellow at Cambridge he embarks on love affairs and searches for love at the same time as career success. Finally, contentment in love exhausts his passion for research.
