The first part of this paper contains a brief description of the beginnings of modern cosmology, which, the author will argue, was most likely born in the Year 1912. Some of the pieces of evidence presented here have emerged from recent research in the history of science, and are not usually shared with the general audiences in popular science books. In special, the issue of the correct formulation of the original Big Bang concept, according to the precise words of Fred Hoyle, is discussed. Too… Expand

Some Issues on the Foundations of Modern Cosmology, Gravitation and Quantum Physics
After the first clear evidence of the recession—at very high speeds—of the spiral nebulae was announced by V.M. Slipher in 1914, as a result of his work started in 1912, it still took several decadesExpand

Alexander Friedmann, Carl Wilhelm Wirtz, Vesto Slipher, Knut E. Lundmark, Willem de Sitter, Georges H. Lemaître, and Edwin Hubble all contributed to the discovery of the expansion of the universe. IfExpand

Reasons in Favor of a Hubble-Lemaître-Slipher's (HLS) Law
Based on historical facts, revisited from a present-day perspective, and on the documented opinions of the scientists involved in the discovery themselves, strong arguments are given in favor of aExpand
Generic Computing-Assisted Geometric Search for Human Design and Origins
TLDR
The discussion in this chapter proposes the Mars geometric Panspermia theory which is hinged on this perspective and presents network architecture and a data acquisition strategy suitable for capital constrained organizations. Expand
