Fellow of Trinity College, Nobel Prize winner (for his discovery of pulsars), and Astronomer Royal. The Latin inscription elegantly describes his Nobel work : 'He was the first to perceive with the mind's eye the true nature of stars so distant that their light is not strong enough to be seen; this he did by arranging large dishes in rows and lines so skilfully that the shortest wave sent from the sky could not escape'.
