Orion's dim clusters of light

Before and after a certain thing is invented, the same view can look completely different.

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

Astronomers have been observing the universe for the past several thousand years in an attempt to unravel its complex workings.

Most of them are based on the naked eye.

A revolutionary tool was invented in the early 17th century that radically changed this situation: the telescope.

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

Dark objects appear brighter (improved light gathering power) and indistinct scenery appears clearer (improved resolving power).

Galileo knew well how persuasive something concrete and tangible can be.

It became clear that the Milky Way can be broken down into individual stars, and that the dim clusters of light in Orion and the Pleiades are actually a group of stars.

The stars were so dense and quite faint that they were not discernible to the naked eye.

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

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

One of the power of IT is the increasing resolution of social life through the flow of personal activity data that was never distributed before.

The activities that had been ambiguous are now clearly visible in the form of data.

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