Astrophysics Seminar

Abstract:

The lecture, IN HEBREW, will discuss the Copernican revolution from the point of view of an astronomer, an amateur historian of Astronomy. I will touch upon the life and work of Copernicus, Tycho, Kepler and Galileo. In particular, I am interested in the questions and dilemmas that occupied the minds of these giants, on whose shoulders we stand.
