Early man, looking at the heavens, believed the stars were fixed to the inside surface of a rotating sphere. Copernicus gave his name to the theory of an earth-cantered universe, and the Vatican propagated his belief by threatening to burn science heretics at the stake for stating otherwise. We now know that we live on the fringe of a nearly infinite and ever-expanding universe.

The bronze hoops symbolise the planets and sun is shown by a wide band called the ecliptic circle.
