Dr Immanuel Velikovsky is the biggest growing cult figure in the USA. At age 77 he's an unorthodox scientist who believes that a mere few hundred years before Christ was born Venus almost collided with the Earth. Mountain ranges were formed, seas boiled and the world stood still.
Few scientists take Velikovsky seriously. But his supporters point to the recent American space probes which seem to confirm his startling predictions about the nature of the moon and the planets Venus, Mars and Jupiter. People have begun to wonder. Other men have been scorned by the establishment for unpopular ideas. Is Velikovsky a crank? Or is he another Galileo?
