Summary
Believing that "the first reports of the great discoveries of science are works of art," novelist and science writer Lightman has selected 25 breakthrough papers in fields ranging from quantum physics to molecular biology, medicine, and cosmology. Each is introduced with an essay on the life of each scientist and the significance of their discovery, being sensitive to the suffering of Jewish German scientists working and living under the Nazis and of women scientists in the days of institutionalized misogyny. Includes papers by Albert Einstein, Niels Bohr, Henrietta Leavitt, Linus Pauling, Edwin Hubble, and Barbara McClintock. 2005
