Have you ever wondered...

  • Did man really land on the moon? Or was it all a hoax?
  • Why do stars twinkle?
  • Can an egg balance on its end during the spring equinox?

These are just a few of the interesting myths and misconceptions astronomer Philip Plait dispels in his book Bad Astronomy. Plait also devotes a chapter to addressing the astronomical "evidence" for a young universe, such as the collapsing--cloud theory and the collapsed disk theory. Although Plait writes from a naturalistic point of view, his lay--friendly approach will help readers discern fact from fiction when it comes to astronomy.
