How did the universe originate and how did it reach its present state? What formed the earth and how did life arise? These are among the central questions that have concerned every human culture and they obviously involve events buried in the distant past. How can we progress in understanding so as to choose among the various theories for the origin of the universe, or possibly formulate a better theory? This process of exploration is what we call astronomy, and the final purpose of astronomy is thus nothing less than to account for the origin and physical nature of the universe around us

Galileo's new universe : the revolution in our understanding of the cosmos by Stephen P Maran( Book )

6 editions published between 2008 and 2010 in English and held by 446 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"About 400 years ago, Galileo looked to the sky with his perspicillum, or spyglass, and changed how we see the universe around us forever. The seemingly flat moon was suddenly full of craters, the creamy Milky Way was dotted with stars and the large black sky held more than just the Earth and its moon. Fast forward to the 21st century, when humans have walked on the moon half a dozen times and perspicillums, or telescopes, are several hundred times larger and gather images of phenomena Galileo couldn't fathom. Galileo's New Universe doesn't just document astronomical advances, it compares and contrasts Galileo's world with today's. Learn the consequences Galileo faced when he supported the Copernican Theory of the sun as the center of the universe to current scientific debates such as how the universe works. Find out what's changed in astronomy and why and what hasn't evolved since the 17th century."--Publisher description
