Enigma of Sunspots: A Story of Discovery and Scientific Revolution
Judit Brody (au)
The discovery of sunspots -- dark areas of irregular shape on the Sun’s surface -- overturned classical views of the universe & revolutionized the way we study astronomy today. Early astronomers were reluctant to acknowledge the existence of blemishes in the Sun as the very idea threatened to contradict Aristotle’s theory of the Sun as a perfect celestial orb. But we now know that sunspots are a natural phenomenon which move across the Sun’s gaseous surface, contracting & expanding as they go. This history of our efforts to understand sunspots describes the lives & tempestuous quarrels of those dedicated astronomers who first charted the patterns of sunspots & left records of their behavioral cycles over the years.
