Fritz Zwicky: The Father of Dark Matter

Longtime readers of Palomar Skies may remember my birthday tribute to Zwicky last February and his daughter's tribute as well.

There can be no doubt that Zwicky was a giant in astronomy and astrophysics. For a look at the career of Fritz Zwicky I highly recommend the article Idea Man by Stephen M. Maurer.

Zwicky is further proof that so-called normal people and wallflowers do not change the world for the better despite itself.
