Pushing the Horizon

The cover of Pushing the Horizon Published in 1998, Pushing the Horizon: 75 years of High Stakes Science and Technology at the Naval Research Laboratory, explores the origin, development and accomplishments of NRL over its first 75 years. Science writer, Ivan Amato, analyzes the personalities, institutional culture, and influences of what has become one of the preeminent research laboratories within the United States. Tracing the Laboratory from its small and often inauspicious origins of today's large, multidisciplinary research center, Amato sets in context many of the important research events and fronts of modern military science and technology.
