Science begins with a vision. For millennia the earth is below, the sky above. Then the sun, moon and stars revolve around us. Then, the Earth is a great stone that floats suspended in space. Later, Copernicus understands and shows that our Earth is not at the centre of the dance of the planets, but that the sun is there instead. Our planet becomes one amongst the others.
