Title: Andromeda Galaxy and the Rise of Modern Astronomy: Ancient Depictions of Andromeda
Organization: Hamline University
Link : For more info go to www.adastrarocket.com
What we now refer to as Andromeda Galaxy, or M31 to many astronomers, has been central to the study of the sky and the rise of modern astronomy. Our changing understanding of what it is has been a driver not only of a change in the scientific study of the sky but also how humans view themselves and their role in it. Part one examines ancient depictions of Andromeda, taking us from Greeks, Romans, and other cultures, though the Islamic Middle Ages, up to the beginning of the invention of the telescope.
Bio: David Schultz is a Hamline University Professor in Saint Paul, Minnesota. He is the author of more than 35 books including Andromeda Galaxy and the Rise of Modern Astronomy.
