Today, we take for granted that a telescope allows us to see galaxies millions of light years away, but before its invention, people used nothing more than their naked eye to fathom what took place in the sky. So how did four very different men in the 1500s—Nicolaus Copernicus, Tycho Brahe, Johannes Kepler, and Galileo Galilei—collaborate to discover that the Earth revolved around the Sun? Offering a group portrait, L.S. Fauber suggests that as these geniuses gradually unveiled a radical discovery that contradicted Church doctrine, they created our contemporary world—and with it, the uneasy conditions of modern life.

"Fauber seamlessly merges biography, history, and science…. Rich with detail, this is an extraordinary saga of stubborn scientific curiosity."—Publishers Weekly (starred review)
