This CD begins with Greek astronomy and develops the Pythagorean, Aristotelian (homocentric spheres) and Ptolemaic systems. Ancient astronomical structures such as Stonehenge, Egyptian pyramids and Abu Simal illustrate early civilizations’ involvement with astronomy. Beautiful illustrations depict the Copernican revolution showing Copernicus, Galileo, Kepler, Brahe and Newton at work. Early astronomical instruments from astrolabs and and other armillary spheres to orreries, celestial globes and maps are shown. The set concludes with a survey of ancient and modern telescopes.
