Introduction to Astronomy April 2024
April 1 @ 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Physics and History: The Earth and Solar System
We are taught about ancient ways of looking at the universe from a modern perspective. We tend to regard past ideas about the universe as being wrong simply because we think we know better, while ignoring the fact that in past times the whole basis of reasoning was very different from today. This talk explores past worldviews; it also describes several pioneers who changed the worldview, both through observation and by developing new ideas and concepts.
This interesting topic is not to be missed, and we look forward to seeing you there!
This meeting will also be live-streamed on the AAS YouTube channel.
