In a startling reinterpretation of the facts, Stillman Drake advances the speculation that Galileo’s condemnation by means of the Inquisition was once prompted now not by means of his defiance of the Church, yet by way of the hostility of latest philosophers.

Example text

To all has to be added a huge amount of ionization radiation in that intense environment. The best way to think of this region of space is an extended atmosphere of the Sun, even though much of it is particulate matter. The geometry also indicates that the glow is from the equatorial band of the Sun. Taking all these factors together, the brightest features will be closest to the Sun and, therefore, ideally seen immediately before dawn in the northern full. That mandates a perfectly clear sky and a mountaintop for preference.

This cosmic debris is in constant motion, not just in orbit around the Sun. The larger particles tend to migrate into the Sun and are consumed, whereas the solar wind travels ever outward leading to what would seem to be a diminishing source. However, comets and asteroids proper generate plenty of new material whenever they orbit close to the Sun, and it’s from that origin that we know the Zodiacal light will go on forever due to replenishment. This stuff is an extremely good light reflector and is confirmed to be the origin of the glow by a study of the spectrum.

The Human Eye 41 Another interesting feature of our eyes is also worth checking, that of our color vision at the periphery. For this you need a helper or something that will hold two cards of different color some distance apart. Move to and fro and stop when you are aware of the two cards at the edge of your vision. Even at my advanced age I can still see colors but most of you reading this will find it difficult or impossible, which is more normal. That phenomenon occurs because the eye color sensors or cones are bunched at the center of the retina.
