520    The inside story of a quest to unlock one of cosmology's 
       biggest mysteries, derailed by the lure of the Nobel 
       Prize. What would it have been like to be an eyewitness to
       the Big Bang? In 2014, astronomers wielding BICEP2, the 
       most powerful cosmology telescope ever made, thought 
       they'd glimpsed the spark that ignited the Big Bang. 
       Millions around the world tuned in to the announcement, 
       and Nobel whispers began to spread. But had these 
       cosmologists truly read the cosmic prologue or, driven by 
       ambition in pursuit of Nobel gold, had they been deceived 
       by a galactic mirage? In Losing the Nobel Prize, 
       cosmologist Brian Keating--who first conceived of the 
       BICEP (Background Imaging of Cosmic Extragalactic 
       Polarization) experiments--tells the inside story of 
       BICEP2's detection and the ensuing scientific drama. Along
       the way, Keating provocatively argues that the Nobel Prize
       actually hampers scientific progress by encouraging speed 
       and competition while punishing inclusivity, collaboration,
       and bold innovation. To build on BICEP2's efforts to 
       reveal the cosmos' ultimate secrets--indeed, to advance 
       science itself--the Nobel Prize must be radically 
       reformed. --|cProvided by publisher.
