In the Second Century, Claudius Ptolemy developed the geocentric model, placing the Earth at the centre of the solar system. This was challenged by Nicolaus Copernicus in the Sixteenth Century, when he developed the theory of a heliocentric solar system, with the Sun at its centre. Tycho Brahe then developed a geo-heliocentric model, which combined both ideas.August Tischner argued against the Copernican view, advocating a cone-shaped solar system instead. This ebook collects two of his works for the first time, which will be of interest to those who possess a curiosity about the history of astronomy.
