Moments of Discovery tells the story of three scientific discoveries in the scientists' own words. You can read the text and hear their actual voices.
The Discovery of Fission was a momentous and complex sequence of events where many famous scientists interacted with each other and the world at large.
A Pulsar Discovery shows the work of a few scientists on a much finer, more personal scale, following moment by moment as an important discovery unfolded.
Superconductivity probes the ways of modern theorists in a story of three people collaborating to solve a famous problem (and win a Nobel Prize).
