Since 2009 is the International Year of Astronomy, here is something I thought I’d pull out of my personal archive. It is a dissertation I wrote for the third year of my MPhys, reviewing achievements in cosmology between 1916 and 1999. I invite everyone who reads this to add any achievements in cosmology since then in the comments! If I get enough interest in this post, I’ll consider writing an updated version.
In the meantime, you can also find this dissertation at Scribd.com where you can read it as an embedded Flash book or download as PDF.
Without further ado, I hope you enjoy reading this…
