Does the universe circle around Earth? Do creatures live on the sun? Can you tell the future by looking at the stars? At one time, science supported wild notions like these! But later studies proved these ideas were nonsense. Discover science's biggest mistakes and oddest assumptions about physics and astronomy, and see how scientific thought changed over time.
