Because I think people like a little more information to go with their links...

This is a fact, well hidden from university students and the general public, which is recounted with candour; and potentially leads to the down-fall of the presiding Big Bang theory.

Amazon.com (http://www.amazon.com/UNIVERSE-Cosmology-Quest-Dr-Halton/dp/B0006HU2VY):


UNIVERSE-The Cosmology Quest

Starring: Dr. Halton Arp, Dr. Margaret Burbidge
[...]
The story is told by 16 world renown astronomers and cosmologist such as the legendary Sir Fred Hoyle, controversial cosmologists Geoffrey Burbidge and Halton Arp, philosopher and telescope designer John Dobson, astronomers Jack Sulentic, Jean-Claude Pecker, and Margaret Burbidge.

From the website:

Universe - The Cosmology Quest is a unique mixture of a human interest and science documentary film. It exhibits a sharp understanding of the struggles in astronomy and cosmology during the past decades. As the first comprehensive film dealing with major new approaches in non-big bang cosmologies, it reveals several deep-rooted theoretical and observational controversies. This is a fact, well hidden from university students and the general public, which is recounted with candour; and potentially leads to the down-fall of the presiding Big Bang theory

In other words, it sounds like this is another "What the bleep do we know?" video.

[Snip!] In other words, it sounds like this is another "What the bleep do we know?" video.
But without the "channeling" and other new-agey nonsense.

Fluff, more fluff, and did I mention fluff?

It attacks a lot of other nonsense, mind. For example, The Big Bang, Black Holes, Dark Matter, Dark Energy, and all the other mathematical absractions required to prop up a cosmology in crisis.

... aaaaand here comes the supporter.

Well, we're certainly glad we can abandon those four ideas. Just what did you have in mind to replace them? Remember, there are 400 years of painstaking work behind the current cosmology, starting with Galileo, Copernicus, et al., that you will have to explain better than they did. Not as well as, not with skipped parts, but better than.

Read carefully the Wiki articles on general and special relativity. It's a good place to start. If you can't handle the math, there are many excellent general math sites to help.
