Prof. Narlikar is continuing his work in alternative cosmology, the so-called quasi-steady state cosmology, and is currently working on tests that distinguish it from the standard big bang cosmology. One such test involves searching for very old stars. Another of his interests is to look for microorganisms in samples of air collected by balloons from heights of up to 41km, as such organisms are likely of extraterrestrial origin.
