The following abstract is that of a paper by H. Aspden distributed by the author as a hand-out to accompany a Lecture on the subject held in the Physics Department of the University in Cardiff in Wales in 1977.


Abstract: This lecture presents some new scientific evidence which may help our understanding of the creation of the solar system. It suggests an experimental approach for exploring the phenomenon involved. It results from theoretical enquiry into the structure of the vacuum medium, a pursuit which is somewhat controversial. It is hoped, however, that the evidence presented will speak for itself and encourage those with the resources to undertake the necessary experimental research.
