It's possibly history's biggest conspiracy theoryone that over and over has begged the question: was there really only one gunman in the JFK assassination? Not according to science, says physicist and ballistics expert G. Paul Chambers in HEAD SHOT: THE SCIENCE BEHIND THE JFK ASSASSINATION (Prometheus Books, $25.00)the first book to accurately solve the crime of the century through science and reclaim contemporary American history.
As the forty-seventh anniversary of JFK's assassination approaches on November 22, 2010, Chambers, a former research physicist in detonation and radiation sciences for the US government, uses the laws of physics and motion to prove compelling new conclusions about the course of events that forever changed the landscape of American leadership. He confirms:
The conclusions presented in HEAD SHOT: THE SCIENCE BEHIND THE JFK ASSASSINATION aim to correct "the bad science and misinformation that has been disseminated to the American public over the last forty-five years" says Chambers, who argues that the physics behind lone-gunmen theories is not only wrong, but impossible.
Chambers covers in detail the Warren Commission, challenges to the single-bullet theory, the importance of eyewitnesses, how science arrives at the truth, the medical and acoustic evidence, the physical principle of momentum, the Zapruder film, and convincing evidence for at least a second rifleman in Dealey Plaza.
The two most valuable pieces of evidence, he says, are the Zapruder film and the acoustic evidence compiled by the House Select Committee on Assassinations in 1978. "In the high-speed science world, the film record is the most important and telling record you have of an experiment. Then you expect other measurements, such as pressure gages, strain gages, laser interferometers, a
