Tom Van Flandern's book adds a new dimension to cosmology--not only does it present a novel approach to timeless issues, it stands up to the closest scientific scrutiny. Even the most respected scientists today will readily admit that the Big Bang Theory is full of holes. But it takes a new look, like Dark Matter, Missing Planets, and New Comets, to explain not only why the theory is wrong but what to substitute in its place. If you are curious about such things as the nature of matter and the origin of the solar system, but feel inadequately equipped to grasp what modern science has to say about such things, read this book. You will not get the all too common condescending attempt to water down the `mysteries' of modern science into a form intelligible to little non scientist you, but rather a straightforward new theory, logically derived in front of your eyes, which challenges the roots of many of today's complex accepted paradigms, yet whose essence is simple enough to be thoroughly communicated to the intelligent layman without "losing it in the translation."

About the Author:

Tom Van Flandern (1940-2009) was an Ohio-born astronomer and physicist. He attended Xavier University and Yale University before beginning his career at the US Naval Observatory. Van Flandern’s research focused on aspects outside of the mainstream, as later published in Dark Matter, Missing Planets and New Comets: Paradoxes Resolved, Origins Illuminated.

Review:

"The overview of orbital dynamics is fascinating, detailing characteristics of orbits--many of which are non-intuitive. In particular the notion of 'spheres of influence' was very informative, serving as a foundation for discussions contained in alter chapters. Whether or not one agrees with Van Flandern's theories, this chapter provides an education all its own."
-The Mason-Dixon Astronomer

"Tom Van Flandern is both an insider and an outsider. A professional astronomer for twenty-five years, he is well versed in the customs of mainstream science. On the other hand, after a long review of the assumptions underlying a large portion of received truth in astronomy and cosmology, he has come to a radical conclusion: much currently accepted theory is wrong."
-Astronomy Books Club
