Francis Heyden, S.J.: "Our Wonderful Universe." Tape 8
Heyden, Francis J.
Eight and final lecture in a series of transcribed lectures on Astronomy by Francis J. Heyden, S.J., Director of the Georgetown Observatory. In "Our Wonderful Universe", Heyden concludes the series with his descriptions on the size and contents of the universe and closes with observations on its origin. Heyden believes the age of the earth, as measured by geologists, is essentially the same as the universe, as measured by astronomers, which indicates that both were created at the same time about 3.5 million years ago.
