GEOFFREY WYNNE-JONES (FRCS, FRACS)
Geoffrey Wynne-Jones was born in 1925 at Hawera New Zealand. His uncle, Mortimer Townsend, an active Southern Hemisphere observer, was a Fellow of the Royal Astronomical Society and taught him the fundamentals of astronomy. Geoffrey studied physics and mathematics at Auckland University, went on to train as a general surgeon, and spent a lifetime working at this in Hamilton New Zealand.

He retained his interest in astronomy and cosmology, refocusing upon this in the recent decades. He was President of the Hamilton Astronomical Society in 1990's. At this time the Society built one of New Zealand's largest telescopes, a 61cm Nasmyth-Cassegrain with a polar mount and eleven metre dome. He is now Patron of the Society.

Geoffrey became interested in cosmology and the formation of the universe, studying everything he could find about this. Being sceptical about the Big Bang Theory he gradually developed explanations for a viable alternative, which he believes to be the Infinite Universe Theory.

In 2000 he presented a paper at the Scientific Meeting of the Royal Astronomical Society of New Zealand on alternatives to the Big Bang Theory, largely relating to Compton Red Shifting.

After reading Benglemann and Martin Rees' 'Gravity's Fatal Attraction', he formed an important part of his theory whereby black holes ultimately explode by a mechanical force to scatter neutrons, which decay to begin the recycling process. In the early stages of this study Professor of Physics at Waikato University, Bruce Liley was his mentor and advisor.

In 2008, Geoffrey briefly visited Professor David Spergel in Princeton University USA, to discuss the absence of alternatives to the Big Bang Theory. He went on to visit Professor Neil Turok from the Department of Applied Mathematics and Physical Science at Cambridge University in the UK enquiring about the proof of the Big Bang Theory. This led Geoffrey to consider more carefully the supposed cyanogen proof which relies on an assumption that the cosmic microwave background radiation (CMB) is a relic of the Big Bang which does not fit in with an infinite universe theory.

Over the last 10 years, as his theory developed, Geoffrey offered several papers to scientific journals. Although some interest was expressed, they chose not to publish his thinking relating to the Infinite Non-Expanding Universe Theory, perhaps because of it being too contrary to the popular but very conceivably flawed Big Bang Theory. The advent of the internet, however, allows one to put forward new ideas for all to find and consider. Geoffrey believes that, although he is a not a formally trained cosmologist or astrophysicist, due to his considerable study, research and thinking relating to the topic, he is qualified to present this new and intuitively sensible alternative to the Big Bang Theory.
