Must Read of the Year for Science (and Science!) Fans

Mike Flynn’s historical tour of how heliocentrism went from cool mathematical theory to established science, with a heapin’ helpin’ of the Galileo Affair  on the side. Proving, once again, that a little real history is always more interesting than ossified myths we tell ourselves.

It’s Science! Intrigue! Italian politics! Flame wars! Titanic clashes of egos! The Inquisition! It’s like American Idol meets reality TV with Renaissance Italians. What’s not to like?

So, go read it, already!
