Imanuelio Kanto renginys Idėjų observatorijoje

Join us at the Vilnius University's Observatory of Ideas to honor Immanuel Kant's 300th birthday!

Immanuel Kant (1724–1804) published various influential philosophical works on the natural sciences, particularly astronomy. In 1755, during work on Newtonian cosmology, Kant introduced the nebular theory of solar system origins. He also predicted the existence of the planet Uranus before its discovery by W. Herschel.
