A graduate student's story - the discovery of pulsars
by Dame Jocelyn Bell-Burnell FRS (University of Oxford)
Abstract: I will describe the discovery of pulsars from the point of view of the graduate student involved, in the contexts of UK society and radio astronomy 50 years ago. Some occasions when pulsars were 'nearly discovered' will also be described.
