Fred Hoyle is vindicated? (I think so)



  • What a bummer, Gamov and company are rolling in their graves...

    Well, shall we resurrect the luminous aether, while we're at it?

  • Hoyle coined the term 'Big Bang Theory' in 1949 as a bit of insulting sarcasm of what he considered pseudoscience.

    Yet today 'The Big Bang Theory' is one of the most popular shows on broadcast TV.

    And with today's passing of Leonard Nimoy, allow me to tie this all together:

  • This does not vindicate Fred Hoyle and his original steady-state universe theory.

    Hoyle did not believe in the superdense, primordial fireball of the "Big Bang". Instead his theory was that the Universe was eternal, has always looked like it is today, with new matter being continuously created in the vacuum and filling in for the old as the Universe continuously expanded to infinity.

    The new theory does not eliminate the primordial fireball that Hoyle abhorred, but eliminates the dreaded singularity of contemporary Big Bang theory, where the Universe started out in an infinitely dense state (infinitely small), where all laws of contemporary physics break down.

    Hoyle's steady-theory started losing favor in the 1960s when the Cosmic Background Microwave Radiation was first detected, a necessary prediction of Big-Bang theory, but not Hoyle's steady-state theory. The spectrum of the microwave radiation fits perfectly with what would be expected from the expansion and cooling of the universe from its superhot, primordial fireball state.
