The TYCHOS - Our Geoaxial Binary System

HARDCOVER BOOK NOW AVAILABLE:

December 1, 2023: The 2nd Edition of "The TYCHOS - Our Geoaxial Binary System" is now available in elegant, richly illustrated high-quality print 320-page hard back at LULU books. (opens in a new tab)

WEBSITE UPDATED ! (May 2024) May 4, 2024: This is to announce that I have now updated the website with the final (proofread, polished and revised) versions of all 32 chapters of the Tychos book, just as they are to be found in the hardcover book available at LULU (see above). This also means that you can now easily reference / hyperlink any given subchapter sections of your interest, since they all have their individual URL. Of course, one of the main purposes of this website is to stimulate online discussions about the Tychos model, something that this new feature should facilitate.


PDF OF THE BOOK - in English and German

February 5, 2024: Today I have decided (in the interest of maximum public diffusion) to make the full 320-page PDF of the 2nd Edition of "The TYCHOS - Our Geoaxial Binary System" freely downloadable. Enjoy, share and diffuse far & wide - and do kindly consider making a one-off or monthly donation (opens in a new tab) in support of the TYCHOS research, an ongoing enterprise I have pursued non-stop for over a decade - with no academic / institutional funding whatsoever. It is a work in progress and much remains to be done, such as the continuing development of the Tychosium 3D simulator (headed by my closest collaborator Patrik Holmqvist) and the translation of the book in various languages. Many thanks for your most appreciated and much-needed support.

The TYCHOSIUM 3D simulator

NOTE for the online readers of this book: Before you start reading the 32 chapters of this book, I highly recommend you to open on your laptop the TYCHOSIUM 3D simulator (opens in a new tab) and spend some time getting familiar with its functions (some basic tips and instructions can be found in Chapter 4 (opens in a new tab) of this book). The TYCHOSIUM is a work in progress - but it is already the most accurate simulator of our Solar System in existence as it correctly maps the observed alignments of our planets vis-à-vis the stars, unlike any of its heliocentric counterparts.
