Title: Debunking Astronomical Pseudo-Science
Url: http://www.astrosociety.org/education/astronomy-resource-guides/astron...
Creator: Fraknoi, Andrew
Publisher: Astronomical Society of the Pacific
Description: This is a selected list of resources for those who want to examine with a skeptical eye some of the claims at the fringes of science that seem connected to astronomy. The last section includes some general books that deal with a broader range of pseudo-scientific topics. Instructors can often use the enormous media and student interest in some of these topics as a way of generating discussion about what constitutes science and about how the scientific method allows us to test controversial hypotheses and determine whether nature really works in the way they claim.
