How Boulder Became a World Center for Space & Atmospheric Science #2 - Boulder History Museum

Published by the American Meteorological Society, A Scientific Peak chronicles the early stages of Boulder’s meteoric rise to become known as one of America’s smartest cities. Author Joseph P. Bassi introduces us to a wide variety of characters, including founding NCAR Director and UCAR President Walter Orr Roberts, and the serendipitous brew of politics, passion, and sheer luck that, during the post–World War II and Cold War eras, would transform this “scientific Siberia” into the research mecca it is today.
