I can remember after attending a philosophy of science class, I put forward the thought ancient Greek had about the motion of the planets. I had read about them thinking there are wooden circular structures placed on the heavenly sphere in which the planets are guided. Like a train on a rail.
I am sure I read it, which is the reason I brought it up. I cant find anything about it and I cant remember where I read it. Maybe the book on the history of astronomy by Dyksterhuis.
