Pittsburgh's Allegheny Observatory History Video Now Available


Allegheny Observatory (Source: Wikipedia)

The long-awaited video, Undaunted, The Forgotten Giants of the Allegheny Observatory, is now available for sale on DVD. The motion picture score is available on CD and as a Mp3 download, and a 74-page Allegheny Observatory Fine Art Photography book can also be purchased.

Undaunted, The Forgotten Giants of the Allegheny Observatory tells the history of a 150-year-old scientific research facility, which is the largest astronomical observatory within the city limits of a major American city! This includes the amazing accomplishments of astronomers Samuel Pierpont Langley, James E. Keeler, and John A. Brashear, which helped the Allegheny Observatory become a leader in astronomical research and pioneer the new scientific field of Astrophysics.

This history film premiered the evening of April 18 before a huge audience at Pittsburgh's Heinz History Center. Production of the film DVD had been delayed, but the DVD is now available and can be purchased at this link:
