Romance – from the Gadfly

  1. Based on the novel of the same name by a certain Mrs Voynich, whose husband gave his name to the famous Voynich manuscript.

  2. The only other astronomer I recall being described as a gadfly was Fred Hoyle. 😐 It was in some book, where Hoyle was referred to as a “cosmic gadfly”.
