Johannes Kepler, a key figure in the scientific revolution and keen astrologer, paid the bills by writing horoscopes for the rich and famous. The namesake of NASA’s space observatory was a German scholar who wrote extensively on how the patterns of the stars had profound effects on planets such as Earth as well as on individuals’ lives. Book Is A Good Read Cosmos and Reagan met at a seminar. They were to test a new drug. They became good friends and later they're feelings will grow stronger.

Chapter 3: Big Bang–The Bible Taught It First. Roughly twenty-five hundred years before big bang cosmology was proposed through theoretical physics or was evidenced by observing the cosmos, the Bible, against all other cosmologies of the contemporary cultures, claimed that the universe had a beginning and was expanding: the two most fundamental.
