About Meta Research

            Meta Research, Inc. is a scientific non-profit 501(c)(3) corporation run by a 7-member Board of Directors. It was founded in 1991 in response to the broad problem of getting support to do research on promising but unpopular alternative ideas in astronomy that have trouble getting funded from the usual sources. The organization supports and encourages research or observations in connection with astronomical theories that are in accord with observations and experiment, add insight or understanding, and make testable predictions; but that are not otherwise supported solely because they lie outside of the mainstream of the field of Astronomy. The research is supported primarily by Member contributions.

            The name “Meta” (pronounced with a short “e”) comes from the dictionary meaning of that prefix: “later or more highly organized or specialized form of; more comprehensive; transcending; used with the name of a discipline to designate a new but related discipline designed to deal critically with the original one.”

            Membership and other contributions to Meta Research are tax deductible in the United States.

            Our office hours are 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Pacific Time. Our expeditions are led by Meta Research astronomers. For eclipses, we go to near the edge of the path of totality, where the view is most spectacular. Plans for future expeditions are on hold. Check the “Expeditions” tab at our web site, or go directly to <>, to learn of such plans, which may develop on short notice because of the complexities of the present world situation, or because of unexpected astronomical developments.
