Our Solar System is a four-part series exploring the big bang theory of creation and the controversial question of whether the universe was born from a single massive explosion. Volume one of the series, The History of Occidental Astronomy, examines man's fascination with space, beginning with the ancient Babylonians and Egyptians who developed astronomy, and the evolution of theories which evolved with Hipparchos, Ptolemy, Renaissance thinkers, Copernicus, Kant, and Laplace. Series companion volumes are The History of Occidental Astronomy, The Inner Planets, and Life on the Edge of the Milky Way.
