Fred Hoyle's universe by Jane Gregory( file )
7 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 1,517 libraries worldwide
"Best known for his steady-state theory of cosmology, Fred Hoyle described a universe with both an infinite past and an infinite future. He coined the phrase 'big bang' to describe the main competing theory, and sustained a long-running, sometimes ill-tempered, and typically public debate with his scientific rivals. He showed how the elements are formed by nuclear reactions inside stars, and explained how we are therefore all formed from stardust. He also claimed that diseases fall from the sky, attacked Darwinism, and branded the famous fossil of the feathered Archaeopteryx a fake." "Throughout his career, Hoyle played a major role in the popularization of science. Through his radio broadcasts and his highly successful science fiction novels he became a household name, though his outspokenness and support for increasingly outlandish causes later in life at times antagonized the scientific community." "Jane Gregory builds up a picture of Hoyle's role in the ideas, the organization, and the popularization of astronomy in post-war Britain, and provides an examination of the relationship between a maverick scientist, the scientific establishment, and the public. Through the life of Hoyle, this book chronicles the triumphs, jealousies, rewards, and feuds of a rapidly developing scientific field, in a narrative animated by a cast of colourful astronomers, keeping secrets, losing their tempers, and building their careers here on Earth while contemplating the nature of the stars."--BOOK JACKET

"The Handbook of Science Communication is written for students from undergraduate level upwards, and for scientists who need to communicate their work effectively to each other, and to the wider public. It is also suitable as a source book for teachers of science communication in universities and colleges." "The material in this book is in two parts. The first part, 'Practical Science Communication', is a basic collection of practical advice and guidance for students with particular emphasis on written communication. The second part, 'Communication Theory and Practice', is an introduction to the academic study of communication and its application to many aspects of spoken communication."--Jacket
