But where the best minds in Europe failed, an intellectual upstart from America succeeded. In 1891 Seth Carlo Chandler Jr., an actuary for a Boston insurance company with no formal education in astronomy, shocked the international scientific community by announcing that he had solved the problem and that an inexpensive instrument he had designed could detect the variation. Another American, Simon Newcomb, compounded the Europeans' embarrassment. Working at the U.S. Naval Observatory Newcomb validated Chandler's findings and reconciled the difference between his observations and accepted theory." "Chandler's discovery, dubbed "the Chandler Wobble," had profound significance to astronomers of the time and later played an important role in space exploration and the development of the revolutionary Global Positioning System (GPS). The authors, a father-daughter team of scientists, tell the story of Chandler's life and scientific works with the aid of private correspondence, documents, and family photographs. In recounting both the historical and dramatic human aspects of the story, they help readers appreciate how Chandler's achievements gave America credibility in the world of serious scientific research."--BOOK JACKET+-+41655020062559ocn000300962book19030.63Newcomb, SimonThe reminiscences of an astronomerBiography+-+5648653566723ocn000431739book19450.96Williams, Kenneth PA comparison of the solar theories of Newcomb and LeVerrier, with conversion tables for the nineteenth centuryHistory544ocn002783232book19270.94Schorr, Richard Reinhard EmilPräzessions-Tafeln 1925.0, berechnet mit Newcombs Wert der Präzessions-Konstante nebst Tafeln der Besselschen Sternkonstanten532ocn002470551book19560.93Dunphy, Loretta MSimon Newcomb: his contribution to economic thought402ocn002178281book19240.95Campbell, William WallaceBiographical memoir, Simon Newcomb, 1835-1909Bibliography311ocn072702637book20060.76Carter, William ESimon Newcomb : America's unofficial astronomer royalHistoryBiography+-+0853866406292ocn002178618book19240.96Archibald, Raymond ClareSimon Newcomb, 1835-1909 : bibliography of his life and workBibliography143ocn003996994book19740.92Norberg, Arthur LSimon Newcomb and nineteenth-century positional astronomyHistory111ocn028459475book19100.96Stone, OrmondSimon Newcomb81ocn001813218book19100.96Simon Newcomb : memorial addresses61ocn008047751book19160.92Archibald, Raymond ClareSimon Newcomb51ocn067604592book19451.00Williams, Kenneth PA comparison of the solar theories of Newcomb and Le Verrier51ocn026390387book19051.00Archibald, Raymond ClareBibliography of the life and works of Simon Newcomb31ocn039157154book19290.47Jones, H.
