Science is a creative—even artistic—process. The Palomar Observatory Book is about the pioneering men and women who almost single-handedly laid the foundations of modern astrophysics and jump-started the rise of world-class science and technology in southern California.  Yet, the bulk of those exquisite discoveries are buried in technical journals.  The Project’s intent is multifold: to make the discoveries more accessible to the public, to inspire and educate the public about the scientific process, and to celebrate and chronicle three-quarters of a century’s worth of ground-breaking scientific achievements.
