Resumen:
"The theory of the origin of the universe has advanced overtime through observational evidence as well as through a lot of speculation. In this historical approach to cosmology, the authors review our present ideas on the origin and large-scale structure of the universe against the backdrop of our astronomical knowledge. They argue that the speculative element has become a dominant part of modern cosmology, showing  Leer más

In this historical approach to cosmology, the authors review our present ideas on the origin and large-scale structure of the universe against the backdrop of our astronomical knowledge. They argue that the speculative element has become a dominant part of modern cosmology, showing how assumptions have been made and portrayed as confirmed facts." "This unique book gives not only a critical assessment of the big bang theory, but presents a host of anomalous observations, and puts forward an alternative, controversial theory on the origin of the universe. A non-mathematical account, it contains analogies from everyday life so that readers can understand the concepts easily and follow the arguments presented. A thought-provoking insight into the evolution of cosmology for undergraduate students and general readers, this book shows that the mystery of the origin of the universe is far from being solved."--BOOK JACKET."
