Abstract and Bio - 

Take a tour of the cosmos and its awesome splendor as seen through the Hubble and Chandra space telescopes, beginning at our Sun, moving through phenomenon “nearby” in our Milky Way galaxy, and extending out to the edge of the visible cosmos.

How did it all come about? This is a question that has always intrigued mankind. Alternative views of how the material universe came to be—the Big Bang Theory and the creation story of Genesis 1:1—will be evaluated in light of the most fundamental laws of nature, including some surprising quotes from notable scientists.

Dr. Nobie Stone is retired from the U.S. National Aeronautics and Space Administration where he was a senior scientist at the Marshall Space Flight Center. He has flown science experiments on eight space missions and has served as Mission Scientist for the STS-46 and STS-75 Space Shuttle missions. He has been a technical referee for a number of scientific journals, has authored more than 150 scientific and technical publications and papers, and has served on the staff of the graduate school at The University of Alabama—Huntsville.
