    The International Polar Years and the International Geophysical Year represented a remarkable international collaborative scientific effort that has been largely neglected by historians. This groundbreaking collection seeks to redress that neglect and illuminate critical aspects of the last Korolev, Sputnik, and the International Geophysical Year. James E. Oberg, one of the more ubiquitous followers of the former Soviet space program, wrote in his landmark book Red Star In Orbit: In the light of domestic and international problems [the] proposal for a Soviet artificial satellite suddenly became much more Author: Asif A.

International Geophysical Year (IGY), worldwide program of geophysical research that was conducted from July to December IGY was directed toward a systematic study of the Earth and its planetary IGY encompassed research in 11 fields of geophysics: aurora and airglow, cosmic rays, geomagnetism, glaciology, gravity, ionospheric physics, longitude and latitude.

The International Geophysical Year (IGY) was an international effort to coordinate the collection of geophysical data from around the World. It marked the beginning of a new era of scientific discovery at a time when many innovative technologies were appearing.

This book will be of value to geophysicists and researchers in the field.

"The closing sentence in Dian Olson Belanger's seminal history book on Operation Deep Freeze and the International Geophysical Year is a reminder to readers that understanding the past makes one appreciate today a little bit more.

This book will prove useful to geophysicists and researchers who are interested in the accomplishments of the International Geophysical Year.
