From Navin Sullivan: "I have singled out pioneers who helped us to explore farther and farther into the universe. Each step they took depended on one taken by someone else before. And at each step they found that there was more and more to explore. Today we know that astronomy, the oldest of the sciences, is only just beginning." Vignettes of astronomers such as Copernicus, Kepler, Galileo, Newton, Herschel, Bessel, Hubble, Adams, Leverrier, and more.
