Halton C. Arp

Halton Christian Arp was born on March 21, 1927. He is an American astronomer who is most famous for his Atlas of Peculiar Galaxies (1966), which was published in the Astrophysical Journal Supplement Number 123, Volume 14, November 1966, University of Chicago Press. Early in his career, he worked for Edwin Hubble as an assistant, and conducted Hubble’s nova search in M31. Arp received his Ph.D. from California Institute of Technology in 1953, and specialized in the study of distant galaxies. He was instrumental in the contemporary debate on the origin and evolution of galaxies in the universe, and usually stood on his own with his assessments. Halton Arp is currently working at the Max Planck Institute for Astrophysics in Germany.

ABOUT THIS SITE:

This site seems to be a report for interdisciplinary conference in 2001. It makes comparisons between Arp and Galileo in terms of making observations that contradicted accepted theories. It emphasizes Arp's ideas that undermined the Big Bang Theory.

ABOUT THIS SITE:

This site includes Arp's biography and encompasses an observation taken from his book "Quasars, Redshifts and Controversies" and compares it to observations taken from both professional astronomers and NASA. This site also embodies and explains Arp's contradicting theory of redshifts. The site is basic, easy to read, and informative.
