MIRRORSCOPE takes a wry and darkly humorous look at the fractious and divisive world of astronomy when an unexpected discovery threatens to undermine the prevailing cosmological belief.
The story opens in the 1950's and follows the fortunes of Mt Palomar astronomer, Dr Lee Drexler, who claims to have discovered evidence that disproves the established cosmological belief. Mirroring events surrounding the trial of Galileo three Centuries earlier, an elaborate plot is hatched to twart his claims.
The story comes to an unexpected and counter-intuitive climax that changes our view of the Universe for ever. Probably the most important book you will ever read!
