142. Islamic Astronomy By Owen Gingerich
An article by Owen Gingerich, in Scientific American, on ancient astronomy preserved and improved in the Islamic empire. astronomy.htm
Islamic astronomy by Owen Gingerich Scientific American , April 1986 v254 p74(10) Historians who track the development of astronomy from antiquity to the Renaissance sometimes refer to the time from the eighth through the 14th centuries as the Islamic period. During that interval most astronomical activity took place in the Middle East North Africa and Moorish Spain. While Europe languished in the Dark Ages, the torch of ancient scholarship had passed into Muslim hands. Islamic scholars kept it alight, and from them it passed to Renaissance Europe. Two circumstances fostered the growth of astronomy in Islamic lands. One was geographic proximity to the world of ancient learning, coupled with a tolerance for scholars of other creeds. In the ninth century most of the Greek scientific texts were translated into Arabic, including Ptolemy's Syntaxis , the apex of ancient astronomy. It was through these translations that the Greek works later became known in medieval Europe . (Indeed, the Syntaxis is still known primarily by its Arabic name, Almagest, meaning "the greatest.")

Here's picture of Taqi al-Din ibn Muhammad ibn Ma‘ruf, Director of Istanbul Observatory. He's holding the astrolabe, an early analog computer, which he's discussing with another senior astronomer.
[Just to confuse us, Assyriologists also refer to Mesopotamian constellation-lists - i.e. text documents - as `astrolabes']
Below, a `universal' astrolabe - for all latitudes - which can solve the celestial navigation problems, including `time'. Astrolabes were developed from c. 900 CE in the Islamic world, which inherited both the genius and the records of the Babylonians.
In the picture there are only two western instruments - a celestial globe (front center) and a carriage-clock (middle far right).

Dr. Marc Davis, Professor of Physics and Astronomy at UC Berkeley and Dr. Bernard Sadoulet, the Director of the Center for Particle Physics explain how we know what we know about the nature of the universe. They discuss theories that have yet to be proved, and predict the emphasis of future research. ©1994 32 min. Order Books

Essentials of Astronomy read abstract Lloyd Motz, Professor Emeritus of Astronomy at Columbia University and broadcaster Hugh Downs discuss Motz’s life and work including his book “The Essentials of Astronomy” which is arguably the best introductory astronomy text ever written. Downs is a former student who took astronomy at Columbia in 1957. Dr. Motz, who was named professor emeritus in 1977, believes the major discoveries in physics have already been made, and that what remains is for science to harness that knowledge to humanity's benefit. ©1999 63 min Order Books Downs Motz RealVideo

158. Alternative Concepts On - Human Imagination, Cosmology, Astronomy, Gravity, Iner
Ideas on astronomy, cosmology, biology, philosophy, physics and psychology.
Ideas that will challenge your Mind!
By Donald Hamilton, author of "The MIND of Mankind"
The following links offer different perspectives on various subjects such as; Cosmology, Astronomy, the Origin and Nature of Mankind, Human Imagination and a lot more! Check them out! INERTIA - A PRIMARY LAW OF NATURE
- One of the most fundamental laws of nature is the "Inertia" phenomenon. Galileo experimented with it and Newton partially explained it with his famous mathematical equation (F=MA). HOW HUMAN IMAGINATION EFFECTS "FREE WILL" EVOLUTION BY DESIGN: Predetermined Randomness - Evolution may be a series of random mutations but the results end up just the way the 'Laws of Nature' intended. THE DEBATE BETWEEN THE CATHOLIC CHURCH AND GALILEO CONTINUES - It all began back in the 17th century when Galileo began offering observations that supported Copernicus’s theory that the planet Earth was revolving around the sun rather then the sun revolving around a stationary Earth." THE PERSONALITY OF THE UNIVERSE HOW GOD CREATED THE UNIVERSE - "God is not a king who sits up on some faraway throne directing the actions of the universe. "God" is an Infinite Creative Power who created the “Laws of Nature” and thereby brought the universe into existence. " DEVELOP A POWERFUL IMAGINATION -"It is your ultimate power and can be the key to yor success. Being human - we all have been given the potential to develop a powerful 'creative imagination' to use for our benefit and possibly the benefit of all mankind."
