How science makes war
An exploration of the age-old complicity between skywatchers and warfighters, from the bestselling author of Astrophysics for People in a Hurry. In this fascinating foray into the centuries-old relationship between science and military power, acclaimed astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson and Avis Lang examine how the methods and tools of astrophysics have been enlisted in the service of war. "The overlap is strong, and the knowledge flows in both directions," say the authors, because astrophysicists and military planners care about the same things: multi-spectral detection, ranging, tracking, imaging, high ground, nuclear fusion, and access to space.
