Dr. Joe Bassi will speak about and sign his new book, A Scientific Peak: How Boulder Became a World Center for Space and Atmospheric Science, on Monday, November 16th at 7:30pm.
About the Book:
A Scientific Peak chronicles Boulder’s meteoric rise to eventually become America's Smartest City and a leader in space and atmospheric sciences. In two decades following World War II, a group of researchers convinced the government and some of the world's scientific pioneers to make the town a center of the new space age. Joseph P. Bassi introduces us to the characters and the mix of politics, passion, and sheer luck at the start of this transformation.
