Description: 

It's been a long road to the discovery that Earth is not the center of the Solar System, the Milky Way, or the universe; great thinker from Aristotle to Bruno have grappled with it for millenia. But if we aren't at the center of the universe, what is? Marjee Chmiel and Trevor Owens discuss where we stand in the (very) big scheme of things.
