Astronomers Behaving Badly

In my 2005 biography of Georges Lemaître, I argued that Hubble's Law should have been called Lemaître's Law, as he derived the linear velocity-distance relation between galaxies two years before Hubble did. (That bastard.)

Turns out, there was more going on behind the scenes at the time than people realized.
