Bright galaxies, dark matters by Vera C Rubin( Book )

9 editions published between 1996 and 1997 in English and Undetermined and held by 522 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Bright Galaxies, Dark Matters charts two extraordinary journeys: the road to a better understanding of the structure and composition of the universe, and Dr. Rubin's own path-breaking career. The scientific papers included here offer an overview of the topic that has been the major focus of Dr. Rubin's career: the motions of stars within galaxies and the evidence from these motions that most of the matter in the universe is dark. Elsewhere, Dr. Rubin examines some of the tools of her trade - from star charts to the Hubble Telescope to some of the observatories where she has worked. The concluding section, The Astronomical Life, finds Dr. Rubin writing candidly about the demands and rewards of her career, offering insightful portraits of colleagues, friends, and other notable women in science."--BOOK JACKET

The astronomers( Visual )

Astronomers believe the universe contains at least ten times as much mass as can be seen and accounted for. How they are able to detect this missing mass and to discover more about it are the subjects of this episode. Astronomers Vera Rubin and Tony Tyson describe their search for dark matter, material invisible to us but whose gravity affects the motion of stars and can alter the light reaching us from distant galaxies. In addition, John Dobson, a self-proclaimed "sidewalk astronomer," shares his knowledge with people he encounters
