4 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Charles Ashbacher HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on February 11, 2009
Format: Paperback
Astrophysicist Fred Hoyle is best known for his advocacy of the steady-state model of the universe. He concedes that the universe is expanding, but his premise is that new matter is being created as the old matter recedes. Therefore, the overall appearance of the universe remains constant over time.
In this book, Hoyle presents a popular description of the structure of the universe, beginning with the Earth and moving outward through the solar system and to the universe in general. His presentation is well within the grasp of readers that do not have a sound knowledge of astrophysics, yet the age of the book means that much more is now known. The evidence gathered since this book was published is overwhelmingly in favor of the "big bang" theory of the origin of the universe; few people now even mildly support the steady-state theory.
Therefore, this book has largely been rendered a historical relic; the passage of scientific time has rendered much of it archaic.
