“For most of the history of humankind, going back to Stone Age times, the sky has served as a tool.
[…] The regularity of the motions of celestial objects enabled them to orient themselves in time and space.
[…] From the sky they gained – and we, their descendants, have inherited –
a profound sense of cyclic time, of order and symmetry, and of the predictability of nature.
In this awareness lie not only the foundations of science, but of our view of the universe and our place in it.”
– Dr. Edwin C. Krupp,
‘ECHOES OF THE ANCIENT SKIES’ (1983)
