This is a splendid account of early radio astronomy, meticulously researched and beautifully written. It is a concise yet valuable contribution to scholarship covering the two decades when astronomers first confronted the invisible universe.—Simon Mitton, American Historical Review—
A Single Sky makes an important contribution to the history of physics in the high Cold War (ca. 1944–1964). In choosing to tell the story of radio astronomy, Munns has selected a science that operated in the looming shadow of physics and one in which participants chose not to mimic their more well-known and well-supported colleagues in high-energy physics.
