Come See the Earth Turn

Come See the Earth Turn [Hardback]

Author : Mortensen, Lori

A sickly child, a poor student, and a medical school dropout, Leon Foucault seemed an unlikely candidate for greatness. But his ingenious experiment--simple, beautiful, and stunningly original--changed how we see the world.
Scientists knew that the earth turned on its axis. But how could they "prove" it? Countless experiments had been tried . . . and had failed. Then, one historic day in Paris, Leon Foucault gave a magnificent demonstration that offered the proof everyone had been looking for.
Discover the improbable story of the man behind the famous Foucault's Pendulum.
