easy and digestible
8 August 2019 | by SnoopyStyleSee all my reviews

This is a three part mini-series on PBS. From the start of human civilization, mankind has looked up and weaved stories about the sky. The first episode looks at the different versions of the sky before the birth of science. The second episode looks at the expansion of knowledge as flat earth turns into a round planet. It follows the scientific journey to Galileo who changes the Earth-centric Ptolemaic system to the solar-centric Copernicus' heliocentric system. The third episode looks at the scientific development to the dawn of the Big Bang. This is an interesting way to see the advancement of science through human history. It's not necessarily anything new although I do learn little tidbits. The bigger aspect is seeing this big slice of the pie being presented in an easy to digest meal. At the very least, someone should sit Kyrie Irving down for three hours and maybe he'll learn something.
