Swipe to view the moon from every angle and read through more than 1,800 named features. So you have this sea change in astronomy that allows people who aren’t affiliated with a project to ask entirely new questions.” A new generation of sky surveys promises to catalog literally billions and billions of astronomical objects. Greek astronomy is characterized from the start by seeking a rational, physical explanation for celestial phenomena. [17] In the 3rd century BC, Aristarchus of Samos estimated the size and distance of the Moon and Sun, and was the first to propose a heliocentric model of the solar system. [18] In the 2nd century BC, Hipparchus discovered precession, calculated the size and distance of the Moon and invented the earliest known astronomical devices such as the astrolabe. [19] Hipparchus also created a comprehensive catalog of 1020 stars, and most of the constellations of the northern hemisphere derive from Greek astronomy. [20] The Antikythera mechanism (c. 150–80 BC) was an early analog computer designed to calculate the location of the Sun, Moon, and planets for a given date.

I define angular momentum and give several examples of angular momentum in astronomy: Kepler's second law of orbital motion, Earth-Moon system, rapidly spinning neutron stars, accretion disk in a binary system, and a collapsing galactic cloud.
