Reviews - What do customers think about The Universe-A Surprising Cosmological Accident?
Highly recommended Feb 4, 2008
Dr Richter argues that universe shows remarkable characteristics that allow human life to exist where we live on the privileged planet called earth. The earth is ideally suited to support all kinds of life forms, and each of the estimated 10 million species on earth is designed in a unique way, each with its own perfection. What is the chance of this happening by neo-Darwinian evolution? This book reviews the scientific and biological facts, arguing that, in the end, we are not accidents of nature, but rather are the result of design and purpose. Dr. Henry Richter has impressive credentials to write this book. He received a BS and PhD in Chemistry, Physics, and Electrical Engineering from the California Institute of Technology (Cal. Tech) in Pasadena California. Then he went to the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, which became part of NASA where he headed up the development of the free worlds first earth satellite, Explorer I. He then oversaw the scientific instrumentation for the Ranger, Mariner, and Surveyor Programs. Next he was with UCLA as Development Manager of the Mountain Park Research Campus. He is now retired.
