Abstract:

James Bradley, the third Astronomer Royal, made arguably some of the most important measurements in the history of science, yet he remains a relatively obscure figure. In the 250th year since his death, Kevin Walsh focuses on some of the events of 2012 that present particularly timely reminders of the greatness of Bradley's work and the extraordinary legacy he left.
