About the book

In 1543 the astronomer Nicolaus Copernicus challenged the prevailing view of the world: he claimed that the Earth was not the immovable centre of the world but a planet in orbit around the sun. To the Christian church this was a heresy that contradicted the Bible. For centuries to come great scientists like Tycho Brahe, Kepler, Galileo and Newton wrestled with the question of a moving earth in the face of opposition from the church, which sentenced Galileo to house arrest and burned the philosopher Giordano Bruno at the stake. Their struggle led not only to a new view of the world, but also to the modern natural sciences and thereby the way we view the world today.

"The Moving Earth" has received several awards:

Lars Becker-Larsen's documentary won the Grand Prix at the 46th International Festival TECHFILM in Prague - a festival that celebrates technology, film and multimedia.

At the Vedere la Scienza Festival - International Scientific TV, Film and AV Media Festival in Milan the film won the price for Best documentary.
