The Ancient Study of Astronomy

Fact:

. Ancient Babylon people recorded lots of astronomical observation in writing which helped them create mathematical models that created calendar to time important things.

. The Maya people developed the Maya long count calendar.

. The Ancient Greek astronomer Talami developed the Ptoemaic System.

 

Question:

. Why do we use the number system base of ten instead of the base of twenty like the Maya people did?

.Talami theory that earth was located at the centre of the universe has been disproven. Is there anything else that has been disproven?

 

Wondering:

We have learnt so much from people of ancient civilisation, you can imagine how much more we can learn especially with the modern technology we have today.
