I got a book from 1848 that says there might be aliens living on the sun, with cities.

There has to be something wrong here, I was under the impression Andromeda was not recognized as a separate galaxy until sometime in the 1920’s or 30’s when Hubble made his measurements. Can anyone explain this?

No way! I have another book in the Steele’s Series! I found the zoology one at an old shop!

Genuinely amazed at how they could make such grand observations and what must’ve been controversial projections. Equally baffled how they were still off by 3 orders of magnitude on # of Andromeda stars. Space is legit the ultimate story topper

Wow the writing on the left page of the typewritten(?) book is powerful
