Intro What's New? Hey, it's either this or one of those really irritating PayPal donation buttons here. After three years of long weekends, feverish midnight typing and not seeing my family except on my way to get more coffee, I have finally produced a book that goes with this website.

BA:MMRAMH since I get tired of typing the title pretty quickly covers some topics you'll find here on the website, though with considerably more depth. For example, I researched the history of the egg-standing legend in the United States and was able to trace it to a simple misunderstanding of a magazine article published in Other chapters detail the Coriolis effect and the big Moon illusion, why the sky is blue and why we have seasons.

Besides new material on old Bad Astronomy, there is also quite a bit of new Bad Astronomy. There are chapters about UFOs, astrology and creationism, why you can't see stars during the day, and why small meteorites are cold when they hit the ground, not hot.

The chapters are laid out in a logical flow, with some fun narrative in between. Let's put it this way: if you like my website, you'll like my book. I write the same way. The page has some blurbage, as we say in the publishing business, which means good quotes from people in the field who rave about how great the book is. Besides that, the page includes: a PDF sample chapter about egg standing and the table of contents. Here are some online reviews of the book: Bob Berman, writer of the "Sky Lights" section of Discover magazine!

The Australian Skeptic Society devoted three pages to a very positive review of the book warning: it's a PDF file, so you'll need a free copy of Adobe Acrobat reader. A review on a Norwegian Sci-Tech site , and the same review in Norwegian! Reviews from readers on amazon. Given that this organization boasts tens of thousands of science teachers across the country, I'm mighty pleased by this. The UK magazine New Scientist gives it a mostly favorable review. It's on a UFO mailing list, unsurprisingly.

Read my page about it here there's a link to the review from there. The book should be at discerning bookstores everywhere. If you're like me, and would rather have anonymous strangers handing you books at your doorstep, you can order the book from my website. That way you save some cash, and I still make an extra buck and my daughter gets that much closer to attending college. I love to hear from readers! If you have any comments about the book, mosey on over to the Bad Astronomy Bulletin Board and post them.

You'll find a lively discussion of lots of Bad Astronomy there, and not just my book. My PR Kit. In Print. Search the site. Who am I? Contact me. Public Talks. Privacy Policy. Blog Intro What's New?

Bad Medicine

The book was published in and deals with various misunderstandings about space and astronomy, such as sounds being audible in space a misconception because in the vacuum of space, sound has no medium in which to propagate. Inspired by the author's web site, "Bad Astronomy," the book attempts to explore twenty-four common astronomical fallacies and explain the scientific consensus concerning these topics within the field of astronomy. The book explains and corrects many ideas relating to space that, according to Plait, are mistaken but nevertheless often portrayed in popular movies. Plait also dedicates much of the book to debunking the idea of a Moon landing hoax and explains why astrology should not be taken seriously. A part of the book describes the Moon's tidal effects and explains the Coriolis effect , why the sky is blue, the Big Bang and other related topics. Many of the book's topics and arguments also are found on Plait's page at the Slate magazine blog site, but Plait explores them in greater depth in the book.
