A local public access amateur astronomy show "Mysteries in Space" (aired on friday august 27th) featured a twenty minute investigation into Rihcard C Hoagland. The "debunking" (if you can call it that) featured on this network was quoted from in parts of the segment.
I don't know if others in the Harrisburg, PA area have seen this show but this is a clear case of personal attack and revenge against an alternitive scientist. Hoagland has repeatedly astonished and brought forth new ways of looking at data. Yet, even after significant evidence is shown he is mercilously attacked because he did not finish completing his studies towards his degree. At no point is the reason for this given. In reality he did not finish his degree but instead took up a prestigious oppurtunity
at a museum to become the youngest museum curator in the United States during the 1960, at age 19.
In addition to his many contributions to astronomy (though this has been degraded because of the media and nasa) he's also worked to complete major feats in the educational system and had personal meetings with then first lady barabra bush.
To sum all this up he recieved the Angstrom award which frankly is quite possibly the most respected scientific award next to the Nobel prize.
I would also like to state that I'm sure Richard would be the first to state his theories are not backed by 100% prove but I think their is enough distrinction between his achievements and the babblings of clearly delusional, insane people.
Richard C Hoagland, crackpot or information liberator? You decide.
