Still image from Gravity: History Of Ideas

Actors portray prominent scientists and astronomers as they present the history of astronomy from Plato to Newton in its historical and cultural contexts. The Greeks reasoned that the universe was geocentric--the earth was at its center. Not until Copernicus did the theory of the sun as center take root. Each major astronomer declares his different theory until Newton's answers all questions about gravitational pull between planets.
