The New Heavens

Robert Millikan reads George Ellery Hale's book, The New Heavens.

George Ellery Hale was an American solar astronomer. In 1922, he wrote The New Heavens, a book that explained the history of astronomy up to that point, including the stars, the planets, and telescopes with which astronomers have viewed these objects, in a manner that was accessible to both professionals and amateurs alike.

In 1943, while president at the California Institute of Technology, Robert Millikan was reading The New Heavens when Emmett Brown came into his office to ask him to set up an interview with the military for a position on the Manhattan Project.
