About

For centuries, humans have been gazing at the night sky with awe and wonder, pondering the mysteries of the universe. This chapter delves into the early history of astronomy, exploring how ancient civilizations like the Babylonians and Mayans used the stars to track time, predict seasons, and even build elaborate observatories. It also examines the transition from myth-based explanations of celestial phenomena to more scientific inquiry, highlighting the contributions of Greek philosophers like Thales, Anaximander, and Aristotle. The chapter then delves into the two competing models of the universe that dominated early astronomical thought: the geocentric model and the heliocentric model.
