Interview discusses Wallace Sargent's parental background; influence and encouragement from mother; early schooling in England: technical schools versus academic schools; influence of reading The Children's Encyclopedia at age 10; decision to go beyond trade school; influence of Fred Hoyle's radio broadcasts on astronomy in the late 1940s; Sargent's becoming antireligious; education at Manchester; early theoretical work at Manchester; ability at pattern recognition and recognition of spectra; early preference for steady state model and reasons for that preference; "dark-time" people versus "bright-time" people among astronomical observers; early interests in peculiar spectra: A stars and then Seyfert galaxies; influence of Fritz Zwicky and work on Zwicky compact galaxies; career at Royal Greenwich Observatory (RGO) and University of California, San Diego; work on high star formation in small galaxies and Seyfert galaxies; training of observational astronomers and recent lack of hands-on experience; specialization of abilities; Sargent's motivation in choosing problems to work on; criteria of observers in selecting problems; attitudes toward the horizon and flatness problems; change in attitude toward the flatness problem after the inflationary universe model; attitude toward the inflationary universe model; reaction to de Lapparent, Geller, and Huchra's work on large-scale inhomogeneities and importance of similar work done earlier by Gregory, Thompson, and others; belief in large-scale homogeneity by reason of the cosmic background radiation; work on Lyman alpha clouds; working relationship of theory and observation in cosmology; seriousness of theories of the very early universe; outstanding problems in cosmology: dark matter; ideal design of the universe; question of whether the universe has a point

The Spectrum of alpha-Sculptoris by Jun Jugaku( Book )

1 edition published in 1961 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The stars alpha Sculptoris and 3 Centari appear to be the hottest objects whose spectra contain anomalous line intensities similar to those in the peculiar A stars. However the peculiarities in the two stars are remarkably different. Thus, 3 Centary has strong N2 line and normal C2 lines, whereas the reverse is the case in alpha Sculptoris
The Infrared O1 and Mg2 lines in the spectra of metallic-line stars by Wallace Leslie William Sargent( Book )

1 edition published in 1962 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This note contains the results of parallel observations which were made of four bright metallic-line stars listed in Table 1. These observations were prompte by the following empirical evidence, which suggests that physical conditions must be closely similar in some of the Ap and Am stars
