Astronomy: The Heavenly Challenge by Jack Arnold

Astronomy: The Heavenly Challenge

by Jack Arnold

Title Details

Unabridged Edition
Running Time
3 Hrs.


As optics improved, man began to see the solar system. Tycho Brahe in Denmark, Nicolaus Copernicus of Poland, Johannes Kepler of Germany, and Italy's Galileo all began to see a new relationship between the world and the stars. Their questions, and their non-religious answers, toppled the idea that man and the Church are at the center of the universe. The Science and Discovery series recreates history's four-thousand-year journey of scientific progress. Science has often challenged and upset conventional wisdom. This is a story of vested interests and independent thinkers, experiments and theories, change and progress. Aristotle, Copernicus, Kepler, Galileo, Newton, Darwin, and Einstein all make appearances.
