The Big Bang Never Happened review

The Big Bang Never Happened: A Startling Refutation of the Dominant Theory of the Origin of the Universe - Eric Lerner

Eric Lerner is the director of Lawrenceville Plasma Physics, in Lawrenceville, N.J., and was a friend of the Nobel Prize-winning physicist Hannes Alfven. He is carrying on Alfven's work and the group is close to achieving their goal of proving the viability of cheap, safe fusion power using the dense plasma focus, an obscure technology. I hope the ideas he expresses in this book are not enough to deny him a place in the scientific community but they may be, since in this book he boldly dares to challenge the accepted "Big Bang" theory of cosmology, and does a very good job of stating his case, I think, both factually and philosophically.
