ACCIDENTAL ASTRONOMY How Random Discoveries Shape the Science of Space

by | Read by Chris Lintott

Contemporary Culture • 7.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2024

Chris Lintott, British astrophysicist and host of the BBC's "Sky at Night," delivers an engaging performance. He takes listeners through serendipitous discoveries by professional and amateur astronomers. The author's affable hosting style and ease with sharing scientific concepts lend themselves well to a production meant to induce wonder and curiosity. The array of perspectives includes those of SETI researchers, Vatican astronomers, university-based scientists, and dedicated stargazers past and present. Lintott's wry asides will elicit smiles and chuckles as he presents highly accessible explanations of space mysteries like the Wow! radio signal and other phenomena from our universe and beyond. This delightful production shares the author's excitement at unexpected discoveries and anticipation for whatever comes next. J.R.T. © AudioFile 2024, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2024]
