    Sounds quite a bit like Frederik Pohl’s book Chasing Science: Science as a Spectator Sport .

    Fred is, of course, a phenomenally distinguished science fiction writer, but he also describes himself as a lifelong “science fan.” Chasing Science is a nonfiction guide to sources of information about science, visiting places where scientists work, opportunities to hear or meet scientists, etc. Interspersed are stories about Fred’s own adventures investigating observatories, volcanoes, rocket launches, and so forth, across seven decades or so. It’s a great read, and very worthwhile for any science buff.
