Reinventing the Universe
by Jerrold Thacker
This book looks at various assumptions which have been made by astronomers over the years and finds many wrong. We find that the Universe is probably not expanding, as most astronomers believe, and there was not a Big Bang. We also find that many, or even most, of the star and galaxy images are mirages - optical illusions due to bending of light by gravity. We also find that quasars are nearby.
