The rapid pace of scientific advancement in the field of astrophysics, and the new discoveries in the field and its sheer complexity has resulted in the obsolescence of many theories and models previously used to explain the nature of the universe and the celestial bodies within its expanse. With How to Understand the True Cosmos, Dr. Sol Aisenberg aims to improve the public understanding of the cosmos, and rectify any misconceptions that astrophysicists, scientists, government agencies and interested citizens might have when it comes to these matters.
Newton, in his universal Law of Gravity, used observations of the planets in the solar system, but without access to observations at large distances in the cosmos. Hubble, much later in the early 1900s observed the fixed stars in the sky and showed that they were vast collections of very remote galaxies. The common speculation that Newton’s Universal Law of Gravity applied to observations at cosmic distances, led to the mystery of Dark Matter to supply the missing gravity. Observations by Vera Rubin of the constant velocity of stars in remote spiral galaxies showed that they were not in agreement with Newton’s law for our solar system, and led Aisenberg to show that the cosmic observations can be explained, by simply adding a term linear with separation to the gravitational constant, and would also agree with observations in our solar system. This shows that Newton’s Universal Law of Gravity should be easily extended to include cosmic separations, and thus removes the need for Dark Matter.
A more serious error was caused by the speculation that Hubble’s redshifts showed that the remote galaxies were receding with increasing velocity but without direct observation of the velocity. This resulted in speculations that the universe is expanding and that there was a big bang. Aisenberg shows that the redshift for cosmic separations is not due to velocity but is due to the effect of cosmic gravity draining energy from the traveling photons, and that there is no need for Dark Energy.
Through his work, Aisenberg aims to give readers a true understanding of the universe, cosmos and a realization of the real problems of society. How to Understand the True Cosmos will certainly be an item of interest, to be perused by readers interested in science and subjects pertaining to space.
