Andromeda’s actual size if it was brighter

> More scientist would have documented the sky, looked more into it and we might have gotten much farther.

I think if you really looked into the history of astronomy, you’d find that ancient scientists did spend an enormous amount of time, effort, and money on studying the sky. It’s not like Gallileo was the first to take a look up and suddenly discover that we went around the sun, and not it around us.

The problem is that our perception of those times has been so dumbed down that we say “Oh, look at those idiots, they used to think that the earth was the center of the universe!” People had been working on it for a long time. But, with the technology they had available, that really was the most correct conclusion.

Carl Sagan had it right:

>”You might imagine an uncharitable extra-terrestrial observer looking down on our species over all that time, with us excitedly chattering; ‘The universe created for us! We’re at the center! Everything pays homage to us!” And concluding that our pretensions are amusing, our aspirations pathetic, that this must be the planet of the idiots.

>But such a judgement is too harsh; we did the best we could. There was an unlucky coincidence between everyday appearances and our secret hopes. We tend not to be especially critical when presented with evidence that confirms our prejudices.”
