The dimly lit mass of Orion

Before and after something is invented, the same landscape can look completely different.

Until the invention of the telescope, the night sky was believed to be a myriad of twinkling stars, and when you looked through a telescope, you could see that the stars had bumps and rings.

Astronomers have been observing the universe for the past several thousand years, trying to unravel its intricacies.

Most of them are by the naked eye.

In the early 17th century, a revolutionary tool was invented that would radically change this situation: the telescope.

Galileo and others realized that the telescope could do much more than just magnify objects.

Dark objects appear brighter (improved light-gathering power) and obscure views appear clearer (improved resolving power).

Galileo was well aware of how convincing concrete, tangible things can be.

The Milky Way can be broken down into individual stars, and it is now clear that the dimly lit mass of Orion and the Pleiades are actually a collection of stars.

The stars were quite dense and faint, so it was impossible to distinguish them with the naked eye.
Woohoo!

The impact of being able to see clearly what was only vaguely visible is huge.

However, it also takes a lot of time to decipher the "meaning" of what you see clearly.

One of the powers of IT is that it is increasing the resolution of social life, with the flow of personal activity data that had never been distributed before.

Activities that had been vague are now clearly visible as data.

However, we often do not know essentially what this data means, and we will probably need a different perspective and theory to decipher it.
