Inventing a New Astronomy at the South Pole



11/13/17 - Publisher's Weekly has chosen The Telescope in the Ice as one of its books of the week

The Telescope in the Ice is excerpted on Nautilus

St Martin's Press has excerpted the entire first chapter.


The Wall Street Journal
"The Telescope in the Ice is richly intimate … . Human emotions are palpable in the author's you-are-there framing. The drilling of ice holes, for example, becomes a nail-biting contest between brute force and finesse, the team (and the reader) ever alert to the mechanical shudder that precedes calamity. All this in a windswept, snowbound wasteland. Is there any keener expression of scientists' dedication to the pursuit of knowledge?"
