A journey with Fred Hoyle the search for cosmic life by Chandra Wickramasinghe ( )
17 editions published between 2005 and 2013 in English and held by 1,136 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This book traces the author's unique scientific journey with one of the most remarkable men of 20th-century science. A research programme which was started in 1962 on the carbonaceous nature of interstellar dust leads, over the next two decades, to developments that are continued in both Cambridge and Cardiff. These developments prompt Hoyle and the author to postulate the organic theory of cosmic dust (which is now generally accepted), and then to challenge one of the most cherished paradigms of contemporary science - the theory that life originated on Earth in a warm primordial soup."--Jacket
