With his customary droll humor Connell brings to life in these seven essays advances made in. Picked up this book because Dud was reading it on Lodge 49 and I d read Connell s Son of the Morning Star previously Really enjoyed The White Lantern Historical essays on less mainstream stuff like Vikings South Pole Exploration and Astronomy There s an undercurrent of wry humor borderline sarcasm throughout the book that I think I misunderstood initially Connell pokes fun at a lot of the blunders and missteps explorers and scientists have made in their efforts to understand our world and our universe But I think ultimately he s making the point that as much as we think we ve learned and are certain of we probably still don t know the half of it
