(NASELLE, WA) - This is the story of how man discovered how to use that rarest of alignments in our solar system to measure the distance between the earth and the sun.

In this lecture you will learn about the remarkable Tycho Brahe....the lucky genius Johannes Kepler...

the phenomenal Jeremiah Horrocks

....and others who combined their brilliance to create mathematical magic in space.

This is the entire story of the Transit of Venus...

told like never before.

Hope you enjoy!
