For twenty years, the author has contested the 'establishment' view of quasars as the most distant objects in the universe. In this book, Arp presents the original observations and fundamental data on quasars and galaxies, and explains why he has concluded that: far from being the most distant objects in the universe, quasars are associated in space with relatively nearby galaxies; quasars' enormous redshifts do not arise from the expansion of the universe, but rather are intrinsic properties of the quasars themselves; many galaxies show redshift anomalies related to quasars' redshifts; quasars and galaxies have an origin far different from that assumed in the 'standard' big-bang model of the universe; many astronomers, despite the accumulation of compelling evidence, defend what Arp believes is a fundamentally incorrect assumption about cosmic objects

The Hidden Hypotheses Behind the Big Bang It is quite unavoidable that many philosophical a priori assumptions lurk behind the debate between supporters of the Big Bang and the anti-BB camp. The same battle has been waged in physics between the determinists and the opposing viewpoint. Therefore, by way of introduction to this symposium, I would like to discuss, albeit briefly, the many "hypotheses", essentially of a metaphysical nature, which are often used without being clearly stated. The first hypothesis is the idea that the Universe has some origin, or origins. Opposing this is the idea that the Universe is eternal, essentially without beginning, no matter how it might change-the old Platonic system, opposed by an Aristote lian view! Or Pope Pius XII or Abbe Lemaitre or Friedmann versus Einstein or Hoyle or Segal, etc. The second hypothesis is the need for a "minimum of hypotheses" -the sim plicity argument. One is expected to account for all the observations with a mini mum number of hypotheses or assumptions. In other words, the idea is to "save the phenomena", and this has been an imperative since the time of Plato and Aristotle. But numerous contradictions have arisen between the hypotheses and the facts. This has led some scientists to introduce additional entities, such as the cosmologi cal constant, dark matter, galaxy mergers, complicated geometries, and even a rest mass for the photon. Some of the proponents of the latter idea were Einstein, de Broglie, Findlay-Freundlich, and later Vigier and myself

L'ingerenza dei comuni cittadini nelle questioni riguardanti la ricerca scientifica non è generalmente ben vista dagli scienziati e dai media. Il cittadino è per lo più trattato come un eterno minorenne che deve seguire senza troppe domande i pareti degli "esperti", anche quando toccano le sfere più delicate della sua esistenza privata e sociale. Questo volume nasce invece dall'idea che il paternalismo scientista è non solo inappropriato ma pericoloso sia per la democrazia che per la scienza, in quanto solo un controllo costante dei cittadini su metodi, finalità e risultati della ricerca scientifica può garantire che questa non venga sviata per servire interessi di potentati econornici e accademici. I saggi contenuti in questo libro forniscono un 'amplissima esemplificazione che getta una luce nuova e spesso inquietante su quanto viene imposto all'opinione pubblica "in nome della scienza", pur essendo controverso o, talvolta, dimostrabilmente falso. Tra i temi trattati sono i rischi da esposizione a radiazioni e sostanze chimiche, gli organismi geneticamente modificati, l'omeopatia, le teorie sulla natura del cancro, la controversia sull'Aids, la base osservativa della teoria dell'universo in espansione. A essere messa in crisi, sia implicitamente che attraverso contributi specifici, è l'immagine di maniera della comunità scientifica come aperta alle critiche e dotata di un'intrinseca capacità di autocorrezione

Sects. 12, 13. 89 sequence and that subgiant and fainter stars in globular clusters have ultraviolet excesses. When dealing with stars whose physical properties are imperfectly under stood, such as in globular cluster stars, we cannot rely too heavily on the empiri cal calibration by the kinds of stars used to define Fig. 5, to determine their true, unreddened U-B, B-V curve. But if by a combination of arguments, principally the reddening in the region of the stars we do known about, we can assign a fairly probable unreddened U-B, B-V curve to a group of stars about which we know little, the argument may be turned around. In this case some information may be gained about the energy envelope of the stars by examining the differences between the normal two-color index curves for the unknown group of stars compared to the known. In general there seem to be two possible causes for different stars defining different normal sequences in the U-B, B-V plane. One, the relative energy distribution in the continuum in the U, B and V photometry bands are different. An example of this is the effect of the Balmer depression in supergiants. This, of course, requires deviation from black body radiation curves for one or both groups of stars. This cause seems to be the dominant effect for very blue, hot stars where the depression of the continuum by absorption lines is at a minimum
