Author : Wayne Orchiston
Description:This unique work celebrates the 60th birthday of Professor Woodruff Sullivan III (University of Washington, Seattle). The ?Woodfest? conference attracted some of the world?s leading astrobiologists and historians of astronomy, so it is no surprise this book provides a collection of key papers and reviews on the history of astronomy, astrobiology and sundials. The emphasis on radio astronomy in the historical papers is a fitting reminder that Woody is widely acknowledged as the world?s leading authority in this field. But there are also papers on astrobiology, which reflect his intimate involvement in this exciting multidisciplinary field. The papers on sundials reveal another passion and his quest to make Seattle the sundial capital of North America! This book will appeal to professional and amateur astronomers, and is a tribute to one of the world?s most remarkable astronomers.
