HEAVEN ON EARTH How Copernicus, Brahe, Kepler, and Galileo Discovered the Modern World

by | Read by Stephen Bowlby

History • 10.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2019

Stephen Bowlby's engaging narration helps listeners get to know the people involved in the story stemming from Copernicus's theory of a moving Earth. There are only a few key figures, such as Johannes Kepler or Tycho Brahe, but each section begins with a list of dramatis personae to help listeners keep track of who's who. Everything is building toward Galileo Galilei, once a popular figure who later faces charges of heresy and a famous trial. As it does, listeners hear a dramatic description of the torture rack and will start to feel Galileo's growing isolation. Since Fauber concentrates on the personalities, much of the math is delivered in an explanatory chapter at the end. J.A.S. © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine [Published: APRIL 2020]
