Behold the Handwriting of God

Astrophysicist and adventurer George Smoot spent twenty years pursuing the "holy grail of science" — a relentless hunt that led him from the rain forests of Brazil to the frozen wastes of Antarctica. For decades he persevered — struggling against time, the elements, the forces of ignorance and bureaucratic insanity. And finally, on April 23, 1992, he made a startling announcement that would usher in a new scientific age. For George Smoot and his dedicated team of Berkeley researchers had proven the unprovable — uncovering, inarguably and for all time, the secrets of the creation of the Universe.

About the Author

George Smoot attended the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, where he recieved his B.A. in mathematics and physics in 1966 and his Ph. D. in 1970. Since 1974, he has worked on NASA's Cosmic Background Explorer (COBE) satellite, leading the instrument team that detected cosmic "seeds." A researcher at the Lawrence Berkely Laboratory, he is also a member of the Center for Particle Astrophysics and the Space Sciences Laboratory, both at the University of California, Berkeley.
