In memory of Sir Bernard Lovell

The Foundation reflects on the life and work of Sir Bernard Lovell, the astronomer and physicist who died earlier this month aged 98.

Sir Bernard was the founder of the Jodrell Bank Observatory, home to the third largest steerable telescope in the world (the largest at the time of its completion in 1957). The development of the observatory remains a seminal project, not only in the history of the Nuffield Foundation, but in the history of British post-war scientific and industrial development generally.
