LibriVoxMe? I like my Science Fiction hard and I like my SCIENCE easy. If you do too, take it easy, have a listen to some of these handy lectures about the hardest of the sciences (circa 1890), we’re talking old school pre-Einsteinian astronomy and physics!

And, to make it even easier be sure to check out the Project Gutenberg etext |HTML| edition too. It has plenty of associated charts, photographs and illustrations!

This book takes its origin in a course of lectures on the history and progress of Astronomy arranged for Sir Oliver Lodge in the year 1887. The first part of this book is devoted to the biographies and discoveries of well known astronomers like Copernicus, Brahe, Kepler, Galileo and Newton. In the second part, the biographies take a back seat, while scientific discoveries are discussed more extensively, like the discovery of Asteroids and Neptune, a treatise on the tides and others.
