Cosmology: The Expanding Universe

  • John Gribbin


As long ago as the 13th century the Chinese philosopher Tang Mu wrote (see Needham, 1959, p. 221):

‘Heaven and Earth are large, yet in the whole of empty space they are but as a small grain of rice. ... Empty space is like a kingdom and heaven and Earth no more than a single individual person in that kingdom. How unreasonable it would be to suppose that besides the heaven and Earth we can see there are no other heavens and no other Earths.’
