FE Quote of the Day

However perfect [the Copernican model] may appear in our own estimation, and however simply and satisfactorily the Newtonian hypotheses may seem to us to account for all the celestial phenomena; yet we are here compelled to admit the astounding truth, if our premises be disputed and our facts challenged, the whole range of astronomy does not contain one proof of it’s own accuracy.” ~Robert Woodhouse, Professor of Astronomy at Cambridge.
