Empire of the Stars, by Arthur I. Miller
Empire of the Stars: Obsession, Friendship, and Betrayal
in the Quest for Black Holes
Dr. Arthur I. Miller, professor of History and Philosophy of Science, University College, London discusses two great theories, relativity and quantum mechanics which meet head on in the description of black holes. Miller recounts the dramatic story of the quest to understand black holes and the feud between the great astrophysicist Sir Arthur Eddington and his rival, the young Indian imigrant Subrahmanyan Chandrasekhar, who created the first mathematical description of black holes in 1930, on a voyage from Madras to London.
