SALISBURY, U.K. (PRWEB) May 23, 2013
Money spent on research to create and harness energy from hydrogen fusion is a waste, according to astronomy researcher and author, P.J. Tomlin, who says this is an unattainable feat.
In his new book, 99 New Discoveries in Astronomy, Tomlin reveals his research findings, many of which fly in the face of popular belief. The findings challenge topics such as the role time plays in controlling the behavior of the universe, the Big Bang Theory, enigmas of the Hubble constant, dark matter and more.
The implications of Tomlin’s research suggest that, among other things, we may be looking for alternative energy solutions in the wrong place.
“Hydrogen fusion is thought to be responsible for the sun’s remarkable, prolonged stability, but it is an impossible source of surplus energy,” Tomlin says. “Perhaps the most unexpected finding was that time has an unusual property; one that is responsible for much of the behavior of the universe.”
Tomlin’s motivation for delving into issues related to theoretical astronomy came from his professional background.
“As a researcher, critical attention was always necessary in the analysis, accuracy, reliability and interpretation of data,” Tomlin says. “As a result, I developed a healthy skepticism for quantitative data.”

About the author
P.J. Tomlin is a retired medical doctor and academic who says that data, when gathered correctly, is sacrosanct. A late professor of Memorial University in Canada and a former lecturer at University of Birmingham in England, Tomlin became interested in understanding the physics that underlie the Hubble constant after retiring. Having knowledge of the expansion of the universe whetted his curiosity and unleashed 99 new astronomy discoveries, Tomlin says.
