This idea dated back more than 1000 years, to the Greek astronomer Ptolomy, who stated that the Earth was motionless, and that all other heavenly bodies moved in complicated patterns around the Earth. This view became the accepted view of the Catholic Church, an institution so powerful that few would dare to question it. Until Copernicus, Bruno and Galileo... Learn the life stories of these three great minds, their great breakthroughs, right to their final years. This story is about science and religion. About brave individuals vs a powerful institution. But ultimately, it's about mankind as a species learning to grow up. Like a child must one day learn that it's not the most important thing in the world, humanity had to learn its own small place in the vast universe.
