Summary
After a century of false claims, and millennia of musings, astronomers have made discoveries to challenge formerly accepted views of the solar system with the findings of hundreds of planets around other stars. These discoveries have forced astronomers to ask what the implications of these findings are for all areas of human thought, from religion and philosophy to art and biology and try to understand what our true place is within the cosmos.
