Jodrell Bank and the pursuit of cosmic rays
University of Manchester, Jodrell Bank Observatory,
Macclesfield, Cheshire SK11 9DL, UK
Radio astronomy is a subject full of serendipity and coincidence. This paper recounts the strange sequence of incidental events and oversights that led to the establishment of Jodrell Bank as one of radio astronomy's founding institutions. Particular emphasis is given to the purpose for which it was originally intended; the study of high-energy cosmic rays.
