Recently, I have explored things relating to astronomy history in my blog. I have made entries on Vesto Slipher (http://arijmaki.wordpress.com/2009/09/20/vesto-slipher-the-redshift-anomaly-pioneer/), Francis Pease (http://arijmaki.wordpress.com/2009/09/24/francis-pease-dark-matters/), and Edward Fath (http://arijmaki.wordpress.com/2009/10/12/edward-fath-early-spectroscopy-of-galaxies/). The latest addition is Knut Lundmark (http://arijmaki.wordpress.com/2009/11/21/knut-lundmark-extragalactic-distance-scale/). I found that there were lot of interesting things Lundmark did, so with that excuse I decided to shamelessly promote my blog here.
