    I Like this quote I dislike this quote“The appeal of the Big Bang has been more ideological than scientific.

    I Like this quote I dislike this quote“I have always believed that astrophysics should be the extrapolation of laboratory physics, that we must begin from the present universe and work our way backward to progressively more remote and uncertain epochs.”

    I Like this quote I dislike this quote“Most people today still believe, perhaps unconsciously, in the heliocentric universe every newspaper in the land has a section on astrology, yet few have anything at all on astronomy.”

    I Like this quote I dislike this quote“The peer review system is satisfactory during quiescent times, but not during a revolution in a discipline such as astrophysics, when the establishment seeks to preserve the status quo.”
