Bernard Haisch
Biography & Resources


Bernard Haisch is an astrophysicist and author of over 130 scientific publications. His recently published memoir, The God Theory: Universes, Zero-Point Fields, and What’s Behind It All, recounts his career as a scientist who has reconciled his belief in God with the demands of science. He is also widely known for developing (with Alfonso Rueda) a theory proposing that a hypothetical “zero-point-field” might provide a physical explanation for the origin of inertia.

Haisch served as a scientific editor of the Astrophysical Journal for ten years, and was the principal investigator on several NASA research projects. His professional positions include staff scientist at the Lockheed Martin Solar and Astrophysics Laboratory and deputy director of the Center for Extreme Ultraviolet Astrophysics at the University of California, Berkeley. In addition, he was also editor-in-chief of the Journal of Scientific Exploration.

Since 2002, Haisch has been involved with the ManyOne and related Digital Universe projects which aim to produce, among other things, a multimedia online encyclopedia.
