Individual and the Universe, The, Lovell, A.C.B.
2 Lovell, A.C.B. Individual and the Universe, The
U.S. A Mentor (NAL) Book. First Mentor (NAL) Edition. Mass Market Paperback. V. Gd. Spine Water Tchd. 
       March, 1961. $.60 is the original price. 126 pages plus Advertising. Light medium beige paper but slightly heavier paper stock. Red on the edges. Contains: Black and white photos.
Front Cover: Some wear's at the edges.
Spine: Some of the blue colour used in the Spine printing leached a bit on the Spine.
Back Cover: A few light and small indents and a bit of the blue from the Spine print also leached onto here. Nothing, much, though.
Story: Lovell did a lot of good and innovative work as an Astronomer. Today, of course, we're on the verge of discovering things we never knew existed about Physics and the Laws under which we live and have always assumed were immutable. Your heads will spin in future years with the things we're about to discover we never knew about in Astronomy and Physics. One thing I suspect that we are about to find out is that what we considered to be the absolute Speed of Light is not really true and that while the "Laws" of Physics are still basically true that they can be slightly altered once we discover the new knowledge. 005074
