Solar system, Scientific historical advancement, implications in science
Art and science are related fields but have a different view on several phenomena. Scientific arguments are considered to involve more thinking and even research work. Art is considered as not involving much investigation. The science and art are interrelated; hence they are beneficial concepts to the society. There sciences have enabled explanation of various occurrences in the universe, hence making the human understanding of the immediate environment. Science uses facts that are argued systematically to give reasons about the origin of the phenomenon. Science gives explanations by giving reasons for every situation and occurrence. This paper focuses on a topic that has been advanced through science and has a great impact to the society.
Individuals have various traditional explanations on the origin of the earth and the heavenly bodies. Science gives a systematic explanation of the solar system to the human race. This paper explores the scientific discovery of the solar system as a historic advancement in science. The human beings became curious about the issues of the origin of the earth, moon, stars, sun and the manifestations of day and night long time ago. The scientific invention on the solar system is a historical phenomenon. The invention was made very long time ago around the beginning of the 18th century. The early scientific theory about the solar system was advanced by Newton, an ancient scientist of the 16th century.
[...] The thinking about the solar system caused negative thoughts and positive thoughts. The negative thinking on the field comes from the way human beings ascribed to their traditional religious beliefs about creation. People considered the issues about the sun and the earth as creations by God. The initial beliefs before the discovery do not believe in any scientific explanations, but considers the existence of the sun and the earth as an absolute field that only God knows. Many could not question if there existed other planets because their beliefs only explains about a few elements of the solar system. [...]
[...] The human thought about the summer, spring, autumn and winter manifestations was enhanced. The human beings can now plan themselves because they have knowledge about the steady occurrences in various times of the year. The social and ethical implications of the discovery The ethical implication of the solar system was greatly challenged initially by the religious believers. A key challenge can be associated with the human view that the scientific action was competing with God. The ethics in the religion requires that the human beings respect the actions of God. [...]

[...] The solar system is a scientific invention because it uses the concept of gravitational pull. Science uses the concept of gravitational pull to explain why everything is kept in balance on the earth's surface. The gravitational pull also explains that the materials that formed as planets and other heavenly bodies are held in position in the space by the gravitational pull. Science describes that the planets move along tracks called orbits within the solar system. There is also an axis through the center of the planets along which the planets rotate and revolve around the sun. [...]
