Accessory to War: The Unspoken Alliance Between Astrophysics and the MilitarybyNeil deGrasse Tyson: Conversation Starters


Astrophysicists have not produced any weapons of war, but they study the things that military focus their energies on like access to space and nuclear fusion. History shows that knowledge between scientists and the military have flowed both ways. Astrophysicists are "curiously complicit" in their alliance with the war industry. In this highly engaging book, the authors discuss scientific space exploration during the ancient Greek times and move on to Galileo's time, and to today's GPS technology. They tackle a wide range of subjects including spy satellites, the Hubble Space Telescope, Apollo program, the Iran War, and more. Astrophysics is explained in relation to politics and war.
A New York Times bestseller, Accessory to War is written by Neil deGrasse Tyson, the author of the bestselling Astrophysics for People in a Hurry. He and co-author Avis Lang are an astrophysicist and research associate, respectively, at the American Museum of Natural History.
