Transcript of Astronomy

9th Century aka 1000s
Astronomy Timeline Project
First Person to use a Telescope
Galileo was the first person to use the telescope in 1609, although he did help to make and improve it, but wasn't the person who invented the telescope.
The Person who Invented The Telescope
The Telescope was invented by a man named Hans Lippershey in 1609 with a few others helping him discover it.
The last know Supernova that occurred in the Milky Way was in 1604 named Kepler's Supernova.
In 310 B.C. Aristarchus was the first to put forward the idea that the Sun was actually in the center of the universe. people thought his theory was considered far too radical at the time. Unfortunately, people tend to forget that he was the one who said and discover that, and people thought Copernicus was the one to discover it and Aristarchus should have taken the ceated instead of Copernicus.
Isaac Newton
Isaac newton was born on 1643 and died on 1727. He didn't discovered much as some people that he did, but the way he joined in the astronomy is that he discovered gravity how gravity a huge part in the universe, which he discovered in 1687.
Han Lippershey
Han Lippershey was born on 1570 and died on 1619. what is so great about him was that he invented the telescope although it's unclear if he was the one who use it first, but he was the one who build it first and he did came up with the idea. Possibly if it wasn't for him, we wouldn't have the type of knowledge about space or our solar system.
Galileo was born on in 1564 and died in 1642. Galileo As held the name Father of Observational Astronomy, modern science and physics. After he constructed a 20x refractors telescope he also discovered that he can see the four largest moon in Jupiter. Galileo and a few others while look through a telescope Galileo saw a huge explosion and called it was called a supernova.
The first recored Supernova was in 185 A.D. It takes billions of years and what makes the explosion by a star that finally has it's day as in the sun dies and the explosion of a Supernova is more powerful then anything it's known to be the most powerful thing in the whole universe.
Johannes Kepler
Johannes kepler was born on 1571 and died in 1630. He was a astronomer and during the 17Th century, he was known for his law of planetary motion, based on his work astronomia nova and with that, it also improve Isaac Newton's theory of universal gravitation.
Ptolemy was a greek-egyptian writer and astronomer he was born on 90 A.D. and died on 168 A.D.. What was so great about him was that he helped create tools and educations on how plants and other things orbit, and eclipses, things like that.
The first Eclipse
The first Eclipse people have record was long as 25000 B.C or close to 2134 B.C.E
The idea of the Zodiac came around 1000 BC, The Babylonian created a calendar in the 7Th century BC to assigned each month to a sign, at the time, it was depicted as the Aries constellation, for which reason the first sign is still called "Aries", even after the vernal equinox has moved away from the Aries constellation.
Nicolaus Copernicus
Copernicus was born on 1473 and died on 1543 and he is a mathematician and astronomer. He was the one who created a model of the universe (solar system) and have the idea of the Sun rather than the Earth at the center of the universe in 1543. Before he died, with the model he made, he made science history. He also made Gresham's law which in short terms mean "Bad money drives out the good".
William Hershel
William Hershel was born on 1738 and died 1822. he was a composer and a astronomer. he was the first to invent a large telescope while after 9 years investigating a double star. With the invention of the large telescope he and other scienctist were able to find discover a lot of new objects like in 1802 they've discover 2500 objects and in 1820 they discover 5000 other object. What was also amazing discovery was in 1781 he discovered a star somewhat close to us, but he realized that it wasn't a star it was a planet also known as planet Uranus and not only that he also saw that it had moons and also at the time he could see other new moon in Saturn, so in his time he discover a lot of things and a lot of new things too.
Aristotle was born on 384 BC and died on 322 BC. He was many things, and one of them was being an astronomer. Which he made the theory of universals which means that all things have a universal form. and that they all have a connection to the universe.
What is Astronomy
The branch of science that deals with celestial objects, space, and the physical universe as a whole.
When was Astronomy became about Astronomy is the oldest of the natural sciences, dating back to the antiquity,with its origins in the religious, mythological, cosmological, calendrical, and astrological beliefs and practices of pre-history.
When was Astronomy
In 750 BC Babylonian astronomers discover a 18 year cycle in the rising and setting of the Moon.
With knowing that, they were able to create the first almanacs – tables of the movements of the Sun, Moon and planets for the use in Astrology. And with that knowledge they were able to predict eclipses more easier.
In 1054 Chinese astronomers record the sudden appearance of a bright star. Native-American rock carvings also show the brilliant star close to the Moon. This star is the Crab supernova exploding.
