Little Sister Surprise For Caroline The Heavens Come Closer A Brand-new Planet At The King's Court Secrets Of The Double Stars The Giant Telescope Unsolved Mysteries

- Publisher Young Caroline Herschel would never have believed it if you had told her that she, along with her older brother, William, would one day be honored by kings. Brought up in Germany 200 years ago, Caroline was taught that a woman's place was in the kitchen. But she wanted a profession and independence. Then William rescued her from being the family drudge, took her to England, and trained her as a singer. At first Caroline was annoyed by the clutter of his hobby-- telescope making. Later, when he became a full-time astronomer, she was bored with calculating star positions and recording observations for him. But she soon caught his enthusiasm for the stars. She found eight comets, and William discoveries, and Caroline's careful records, enabled people to see and understand more of the universe than ever before
