Q: What is cosmology?

A: A cosmology is a particular theory or statement about how the universe or some part of the universe operates. For instance, the heliocentric theory, the idea that the sun is the center of the solar system, is a cosmology. The geocentric theory, that the earth is the center of the solar system, also is a cosmology. The idea that stars are very distant suns is a cosmology too.

At the beginning of the 20th century, many astronomers thought that our galaxy, the Milky Way, was the only galaxy. Thus, they often referred to the Milky Way as “the universe.” Many faint patches of light seen through telescopes generally were thought to be clouds of gas within our galaxy. However, much earlier Kant had suggested that many of these faint objects were other galaxies, each containing billions of stars. Since these “universes” were separated by huge gulfs of space, they were compared to islands. This theory was eventually proven to be correct.

Learn why cosmology matters as creation astronomer Dr. Danny Faulkner introduces different ways of understanding the universe.
