Smiler with a Gun
Jones himself is fairly handy with a gun. But even he's a bit dazed by a smiling young stranger's incredible display of speed and skill at a shooting contest. And that's not the last our two heroes see of him or his gun-not to mention that smile.

This week's programme in the series on Man and Science today. The history of the Crab more closely resembles a tale of mystery and imagination than a sober scientific recital.
When a leading astronomer said this ten years ago, even he could not have forecast the twists and turns in the plot of the detective story that were to follow. In the study of this one object in the sky we see reflected the whole of modern astronomy: the story of how a world-wide fraternity of scientists go about the business of discovery, and - in more human terms - their joy in tackling stage-by-stage a never-ending puzzle.
The story begins in the year 1054 when a Chinese astronomer saw a ' guest-star ' - almost certainly the cataclysmic destruction of a star whose remains are now the Crab. It ends with a crucial experiment that asks if this explosion is the origin of us Ã¢ÂÂ is this the death that makes life possible?
