In Chowns acknowledgments, the astrophysicist and BBC broadcaster thanks his mother for talking to him as a baby and his father for waking him up to see the moon landing. The author makes good use of both his gifts of descriptive language and fascination with astronomy to create this lively tale of the 1965 discovery of the Big Bangs afterglow<-->a background radiation providing an imprint of the Universe in its infancy. Besides offering insights into the science of the astronomy, astronomys scientists are also telescoped in their discoveries, their misses, and the in-fighting between the two. Lacks a bibliography.
