    One thought on “Solar System Maps: From Antiquity to the Space Age”

    1. It was great - provided a lot more information about the Solar system than I expected. Visually awesome :)You find out more about different historical world views and their supporters and scientists/philosophers behind it, also how the world views changed. There's little biographical data about the people, but a lot of detail about everything else. You find out more about history of astronomy and about the major objects in the solar system too.
