Sir Isaac Newton

Power of the Sun

Nicolaus Copernicus was a Renaissance polymath, active as a mathematician, astronomer, and Catholic canon, who formulated a model of the universe that placed the Sun (Not The Earth) at its center. In all likelihood, Copernicus developed his model independently of Aristarchus of Samos, an ancient Greek astronomer who had formulated such a model some eighteen centuries earlier. The publication of Copernicus’s model in his book De revolutionibus orbium coelestium (On the Revolutions of the Celestial Spheres), just before his death in 1543, was a major event in the history of science, triggering the Copernican Revolution and making a pioneering contribution to the Scientific Revolution.

Art & Science vs Religion

God always said it was the Earth, around which everything revolved, and when Copernicus suggested otherwise, he and the rest of his scientist friends called sinners, and condemned for their following the Dark Angel who would lead them to burn in hell.

In his interest and study of the mysterious objects that moved across the night sky, Copernicus theorized that it was the Sun (NOT THE EARTH) that stood at the Center of The Universe. As Copernicus saw it, the Solar System was “heliocentric.” THE CHURCH (GOD) said  commanded that the church were at odds over his development of the heliocentric theory, a principle that disputed the widely held belief that Earth was the CENTER OF THE UNIVERSE.

Tycho Brahe refuted the theory of celestial spheres through observational measurement of the 1572 appearance of a Milky Way Supernova. These events directly challenged the long-held notion of an immutable universe supported by Ptolemy and Aristotle, and led to major revolutions in ASTRONOMY and science. Galileo Galilei (“Starry Messenger”) became a champion of the new sciences, invented the first thermometer and made substantial contributions in the fields of physics and astronomy, becoming a major figure in the Scientific Revolution in Europe.

Ooh Josh. Josh! Look at the ball of fire. Look at the ball of fire!

Watch with a young family, and feel their excitment watching their first launch of a rocket, headed for Outer Space.
