i absolutely love the calculus in the bg. great facts!!! this is so neat. I kind wish you had a differnt picture of the sun though, this is almost too overpowering to look at, to plain. The flare is distracting, it would be neat to have a clearer one off to the side or something. But nice work! I do like it lots!
Actually, several Greek natural philosophers proclaimed that the earth actually rotated around the "central fire" that is the sun... namedly Aristarchus of Samos (circa 310-230 BC). This view was not adopted by later generations until empirical evidence could prove it true (Copernicus).
But anyways, screw the history for now, and let me congratulate you on your excellent deviation series. I'm sure you studied photographs of every planet to achieve your goal, and artistically these are very well done. I also love the facts and figures you threw in.
German (die Sonne) and Japanese (goddess amaterasu) are the only cultures ON EARTH which refer to the sun as female (and the moon as male).
the design is just beautiful - so much detail! As the rest of the series, it's just stunng - amazing! I love it! How much time you must've spent into this project...
I guess this will hang in several classrooms, once the prints are available. good job! you can and certainly are proud of it!
