The idea that we orbit a sun in a galaxy filled with suns is surprisingly new. Beginning with Aristotle in 3rd century Greece, we originally thought that we were actually the center of everything until Copernicus, Galileo, and Newton had evidence that suggested otherwise. Our perspective’s progress is somewhat astounding when you think about it.
