Ken Moseley, born in the West Midlands, held a commission in the RAF and studied at its Cranwell College after his flying duties ended. On returning to the Midlands, he joined a small electrical engineering company that later became an internationally known public company under his managing directorship. On resigning, he developed his interests in horticulture, marketing and business consultancy, travelling extensively. The author of two earlier books, Intellectual Space and The Human Dilemma, he now lives abroad and is retired. With a background in electronic engineering and used to solving problems, this book is the outcome of his lifelong search for a reasonable and scientific explanation for the way the cosmos works and our part in it.
