About the Author

Author Bio Dr. Alexander Unzicker is a German theoretical physicist. He has degrees in both physics and law and a PhD in neuroscience from Munich University (summa cum laude). While working as a high school teacher of math, physics and astronomy in Munich, Unzicker published papers on Einstein's unified theory and on a cosmology with a variable speed of light. His current field of research is Mach's principle and tests of gravity. Unzicker became known for his popular science book "Vom Urknall zum Durchknall" published by Springer, a scientific imprint. The harsh critique of string theory, parallel universes and cosmic inflation scandalized a part of the scientific community, however the book was awarded "Science Book of the Year" by leading science journalists in Germany. In his follow-up books "Auf dem Holzweg durchs Universum" and the English "Bankrupting Physics - How Today's Scientists are Gambling Away Their Credibility" (Palgrave Macmillan, 2013) he attacks the so-called standard models of physics, which, according to Unzicker, are too complicated to be credible. With "The Higgs Fake - How Particle Physicists Fooled the Nobel Committee" Unzicker has launched a still harder attack on today's big science experiments and the theoretical models. Unzicker is married and has three children. Besides physics, his hobbies are chess and classical music. He lives in Munich. More details: www.alexander-unzicker.com/CV.html

Alexander Unzicker is a German theoretical physicist and science writer. His book "Vom Urknall zum Durchknall" won the award 'most controversial science book of the year' by "Bild der Wissenschaft". He publicly criticizes theories that are not testable like string theory or cosmic inflation, but also the so-called standard models of particle physics and cosmology, which, according to Unzicker, are too complicated to be credible.

His book "The Higgs Fake" appear on Oct 8, 2013, the day of the Nobel prize announcement. It is a merciless critique of the Large Hadron Collider at CERN and of the theoretical model on which the world’s most expensive experiment is based.

In "Einstein's Lost Key" (2015), Unzicker reexamined a forgotten idea by Albert Einstein from 1911 in which Einstein proposes a variable speed of light instead of a spacetime-curvature formulation of general relativity.
