The astounding argument the the Earth moves around the Sun, left him accused of heresy and forced to spend his last yrs under house arrest.

Her loving support proved to be her father's greatest source of strength throughout his most productive and tumultuous yrs.

4 Ken Alder The Measure of All Things: The Seven-Year Odyssey and Hidden Error That Transformed the World
The Free Press 2002 074321675 Hardcover New 
hardcover This is a new hardcover with dust jacket. 2002 Free Press. It is a remainder book (publishers overstock) and has remainder mark bottom edge. REDUCED as such. Amidst the French Revolution, two astronomers set out in opposite directions from Paris to measure the world. One went north to Dunkirk, the other south to Barcelona. Their findings would help define the meter as on ten-millionth of the distance between the pole and the equator. This book is the story on a great scientific quest, a mission to measure the Earth and define the meter for all time. Yet when the author located long-lost correspondence and the logbooks and the men, he stumbled upon a 200 yrs old secret. The meter, it turns out, is in error. One of the astronomers made contradictory measurements from Barcelona and, in a panic, covered up the discrepancy. The guilt of his deed eventually drove him to the brink of madness. This book is a story of two men, a secret, and the timeless human dilemma: is it permissible to perpetuate a small lie in the service of a larger truth?
