Hunt for Vulcan by Levenson, Thomas
Hunt for Vulcan: ... and How Albert Einstein Destroyed a Planet, Discovered Relativity, and Deciphered the Universe
by Levenson, Thomas
 
For more than fifty years, scientists searched for the “missing” planet Vulcan, whose existence was mandated by Isaac Newton’s theories of gravity, until Einstein’s general theory of relativity proved that Vulcan did not and could not exist, and that the search for it had merely been a quirk of operating under the wrong set of assumptions about the universe. Levenson tells the previously untold tale of how the “discovery” of Vulcan in the 19th century set the stage for Einstein’s monumental breakthrough.
