Caption: Antony Hewish (born 1924), British astronomer. Hewish studied at Cambridge University, England, and also carried out radar research during World War II. After the war he returned to Cambridge and worked with Ryle in developing the new science of radio astronomy. In 1974, he and Ryle shared the Nobel Prize in Physics for this work. Hewish proposed and supported the construction of the radio astronomy project at Cambridge that led to the discovery of pulsars. Hewish was professor of radio astronomy at Cambridge from 1971 to 1989. He has also been involved in popularising science with the Royal Institution in London, England, giving one of the annual Christmas Lectures.
