🌳 Peter A. Sturrock 🌳

Peter Andrew Sturrock, (b. 1924) Emeritus Professor of Applied Physics and Emeritus Director of the Center for Space Science and Astrophysics at Stanford University, and Founding President of the Society for Scientific Exploration, has had a long and varied career in science, publishing several books, including his memoirs A Tale of Two Sciences and over 300 articles on topics of mainstream science such as plasma physics and astrophysics, and on topics far removed from the mainstream, such as parapsychology and UFOs.

For Sturrock, science is not a collection of packaged knowledge, but a flexible and powerful process for building β€œmaps” of complex bodies of information (shades of Plato) and using those maps for testing hypotheses and for relating what might appear to be different fields of inquiry. His mainstream research has been recognized by awards from the American Astronomical Society, the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics, the Gravity Foundation, and the National Academy of Sciences; his anomalies research has been recognized by an award from the Society for Scientific Exploration; and his analysis of the Shakespeare Authorship Question has been selected for an award from Concordia University.
