Find a warmer place! is the insightful tale of the tortured course that ended in our present realizing of the way the weather within the Universe got here to be. this can be a tale which begun in Greek Antiquity, with the 1st musings at the nature of subject and the void, and maintains at the present time with ever extra subtle analyses concerning nearly each element of twentieth century physics, astronomy, cosmology and knowledge expertise. opting for the resource of stellar power, probing the earliest instants of the Universe, and learning of the way and the place every one aspect used to be made are a few of the extraordinary luck tales of the twentieth century, yet have obtained little realization past the really expert literature.

The yr 2007 marks the fiftieth anniversary of the ebook of 1 of the foremost papers on stellar nucleosynthesis, universally often called the B2FH paper. This booklet is a well timed survey of the way a brand new self-discipline — nuclear astrophysics — was once born, and the way it has matured. nearly thoroughly non-technical, the publication continues to be scientifically rigorous, and thereby fills an enormous gap.

Science isn't really a linear technique, because the ill-named “scientific strategy” could recommend to the unwary. the writer emphasizes the meanders, the useless ends and the obsessive dogmas that have guided researchers throughout the twentieth century.
