Universe: The Cosmology Quest

Today on Far Future Horizons we present a controversial documentary titled “Universe: The Cosmology Quest” which could have been aptly re-titled “The Big Bang Never Happened”.

Most of us are intrigued by questions to do with the origin and evolution of the universe. Where do we come from? Where are we going?

These are fundamental questions. But no one knows the answers. In the last few years there have been many claims that we are finally getting a true answer.

It is that the universe and all of the matter and energy out of which we are created was created in a great explosion about 15 billion years ago. This was the big bang. Most scientists will agree with this but there are a few experts in the field, who understand that we still really don’t know. This is the story of the few.

This feature length presentation is a unique mixture of human interest and science documentary film. As the first comprehensive documentary to deal with major new approaches in non-big bang cosmologies, it reveals several deep-rooted theoretical and observational controversies.

The story is told by 16 world renowned astronomers and cosmologist such as the legendary Sir Fred Hoyle, controversial cosmologists Geoffrey Burbidge and Halton Arp, philosopher and telescope designer John Dobson, astronomers Jack Sulentic, Jean-Claude Pecker, and Margaret Burbidge.

Universe: The Cosmology Quest is available on DVD from Amazon.
